c.1910 Fixer Upper in Wellington, UT $65K
Love the realtor’s imagination! The fictional Aunt Sally and Cousin Vera were in all probability a Mormon family who settled in Wellington after Brigham Young sent settlers there in 1878. The family likely built a log cabin or wood frame house initially, and as they prospered, built this (once) charming brick residence in 1910.
The charm and romance of 110 years ago!! Oh, if these walls could talk… SHHH, this isn’t about real estate, we won’t be talking about those things… .
Oh, the covered front porch with the columns, if those walls could talk, they would speak about cool summer nights relaxing, about kids sharing their dreams to be a real estate agent, of the plans for next fall, of the upcoming trip to Emery County, and of course gossip about Marge down the road who got an electric ice box, and Sally who got the new velvet wallpaper, and about Vera’s little kids that are out of control.
If these walls could talk, the kitchen walls would tell of the sound of bacon frying, cakes made from scratch being pulled from the oven, dad and kids getting scolded for sneaking a taste of the Thanksgiving turkey.
If these walls could talk, the dining room walls would speak of laughter, of politics being discussed, of family meetings telling about the need to finish that 4th bedroom for the next child, of tears shed for the wayward child. The hardwood floors would speak about the kids chasing each other round and round.
If these walls could talk, the living room would tell about the stories shared, about family discussions, about when they installed the first indoor bathroom, and got their first black and white TV, of the kids lining up and sitting in the window seats.
If these walls could talk, the stairs to the second story would tell the story, still laughing like it happened yesterday, of the time that Aunt Sally slipped and bounced down each stair and finally landed in the hallway, and how everyone was laughing so hard they forgot to check to see if she was ok.
And of course it has the modern conveniences of 2 driveways, secondary water, patio, and brick construction. Square footage figures are provided as a courtesy estimate only. Buyer is advised to obtain an independent measurement.
