Brick Italianate in Swansea, IL Under $58K
This is the kind of project that inspired me to create OHU50K five years ago. Look at all the exterior detail. It is amazing most of it is still intact. The interior has had some unfortunate “improvements,” namely that 1990s tile, but the mantels, grand staircase, transoms, hardwood floors, clawfoot tub and ornate cast iron radiators are awaiting restoration.
The brick Italianate is located on a corner lot with two detached garages in a low-crime neighborhood.
This beautiful Victorian home is just waiting for someone to come in and restore it! Where are you going to find this much square footage and two detached two car garages for this price? A grand staircase greets you as you step foot into the foyer. Just off the foyer is a huge living room which opens to the formal dining room or step through the foyer to a bonus room that could serve as a dining room as well. The kitchen sits just off the bonus room and a full bath a three season room round out the main level.
Upstairs you’ll find two generous bedrooms, a bonus room which would make a perfect office and a second full bath. A full unfinished basement gives plenty of storage space. THE PROPERTY IS BEING SOLD AS-IS WITH THE SELLER PERFORMING NO INSPECTIONS, CASH OR CONVENTIONAL BUYERS ONLY.
