Grand old Beauty awaits loving new owner. Bring your contractor, Could certainly use some work but has GREAT bones. Large rooms with high ceilings, great flow on first floor. Generous bedrooms on 2nd with expansion possibilities on 3rd. Full set of stairs with original railing all the way to the top. Loads of original trim and charm. Built like a tank. Add to that an AMAZING multi level workshop with power. Giant lot that backs all the way up to the river. Truly a diamond in the rough. Must see property for those with vision. Estate sale, as-is with no disclosures. Cash or rehab loan.

    Well this one surprised me, the main photo doesn’t even show a third floor. I had to read the description twice to make sure it wasn’t a typo. This house has the potential to be a beautiful home, once restored. There is ALOT of work that needs to be done to bring it back to the original floor plan, and if you want to restore the woodwork as well. The selling point for me is the red etched window, that is a thing of beauty. Its definitely worth the investment, but its not in my area of where I want to live.

    I’m a total sucker for a juicy Italianate, and this one has the bones to become one. That staircase is so lovely.

    Agreed with everyone else that this house has some architectural “drama” at the entry with the red flashed glass transom with artistic acid etched or wheel cut designs and the especially ornate staircase. While the rest of the rooms are fairly straightforward the entry could provide inspiration for the rest of the house. I definitely see potential in this house for someone with a creative touch.

      OHD has nothing to do with these listings besides showing them (as in just posting about them.) Please contact the agent for details and status. I’m not going to keep approving your comments if you keep asking on various other homes.

  5. I am the new owner.. I have posted pictures of the progress on Hope Valley Past and Present facebook page.. We are doing a full renovation of the property before we move in and are planning on living there not flipping it… for now.. unless someone makes a crazy offer. New furnace, had to excavate to the street to attach a water line and all interior refreshed. Big ticket items will be the removal and replacement of both porches, too rotted to save but we saved the corbels and decorative trim to reattach. We are using a 203K loan and hoping to come in under 100K but more likely will be closer to 120-130,000.
