A real fixer-upper, but I love that porch. The inside has so many beautiful features, including the doors and transoms.

Unleash your creative potential with this incredible downtown fixer upper. Initial cleanup has been done and new electrical panel has been completed, now a blank canvas waiting for an inspired renovation. Perfect location that's walking distance to downtown retail, restaurants, coffee shops and easy striking distance to the River Trail. Soaring ceilings throughout and lofty undeveloped attic.

I love that this one comes with a general store - with all the original shelves!

Farm house and general store with lots of character and charm. Some remodeling has already been done for you, such as replacement windows throughout and some new hardwood floor put down in the last 10 years. The general store has potential to be an awesome art studio or a local hangout again. If you are looking for a house with lots of room to grow and like the style of older Victorian style homes look no further. Located in the quite village of Doe Hill this could be a great place to retire or bring your family. Large lot with garden spot already in place with room for a few chickens or other pets.
