Once a Burnt-Out Shell, Corktown Cottage Now on Market

New, 12 comments




A classic Corktown cottage just hit the market a couple weeks ago. If you're not a regular reader of the Corktown History blog (you should be), you'd never know what an interesting past this 132-year-old home has seen. Toasted by a major fire about a decade ago, the house hit the jackpot in 2004 after new owners decided to restore/rebuild everything. Everything. According to the seller, about 85% of the house had to be rebuilt entirely, meaning you're looking at a historic facade with a modern interior. Need we make a "best-of-both-worlds" comment? With an ask of $189K, you'll find a decked-out interior that looks roomier than its 1,322 square feet. Check out the open house on June 15, 1PM-5PM.
