    Poor thing! Someone save her! Older than 1880? Based on the doorway trim, windows and cornice line.

    And because you know it’s coming…1952 when it was farmland.

    It started being built up around between 1952 and 1967.

    If I was married with a young family this is the house for me. A charming home with character and lots of space for kids, dogs and all the 4-H projects one could handle. Hoping some wonderful person finds this property and rejuvenates it to all its potential.

    Looks to be the last wooded oasis in a desert of suburban homes–don’t subdivide as description suggests to do. Definitely can be rescued but with the investment needed to do so, the asking price might be more than a tad idealistic. Media blast that white brick, get a new roof on it, new furnace, check that stone foundation…..it adds up.

      This is may well be another one of those deals where the “developable” value of the land is driving the asking price. Without getting into $$ specifics, when I look at houses that need work, I’m always looking for a house that I can begin with the total I want to spend for it to be habitable, deduct the asking price and make an educated guess as to whether I’d have enough to do what is needed in Year One.
      The total I’d want to spend stays the same with each house I look at and seems completely doable with many I’ve seen on this site. But I’d never be able to make it work with this house and I think the value assigned to the land might well be the stumbling block, for me anyway.
