Just imagine this handyman special with a painted lady exterior paint job deserving of the magnificent interior woodwork! Pocket doors, built-ins, an original kitchen cupboard, pantry and that fabulous barn had me oohing and aahing at almost every photo.
Located in low-crime Tripoli, Iowa (pop.1,313), the property has a large yard on a pleasant tree-lined street of older homes. The cheap price is likely mainly due to the town’s remote location and the exterior work required for the home.
The second you enter this 2 story handyman special home you will in fall in love with the beautiful woodwork! The spacious entryway offers magnificent colonnades leading into a formal living room. Sliding six paneled doors separate a formal dining room and a den/office. Completing the main level is a 1/2 bathroom, a kitchen filled with sunlight overlooking the .64 acre backyard, a large pantry area connecting to a back breezeway.
One of two staircases lead you upstairs where you will find 5 expansive bedrooms and a full bathroom! The attic space could be finished for additional bedroom, and the concrete block basement is bone dry. With some exterior paint, this house can be yours to call home!
