You'll have to do some paint stripping, but the bones are there! This craftsman could have such great curb appeal.

If you are looking for a project, this could be the house for you. Back in the day this was an elegant house. Large open livingroom and dining room with a propane fireplace. Master suite on the main floor. With some reconfiguring the kitchen, utility room, office and main bath would be a bright sunny space. Upstairs are 2 bedrooms and a bonus area. You can't help but love the covered front porch. The lot is big enough to subdivide and still have room for a garage. With some money and imagination this home could shine again.
