This nice, maintained University District house has the disadvantage of having its glamour shots taken on a dreary winter day. We’re trying too look past it and see the beauty inside. Considering other renovated houses in the area are listing and selling for well over $300K, this one almost seems like a bargain. Could it use some cosmetic improvements? Sure. Do we know what its mechanicals are like? Nope. Either way, the 2,353-square-foot home is listing for $214,000.
The house boasts four bedrooms, one and a half baths, leaded glass, built-ins, a Florida room, and a fenced backyard. Would we want to do something different with the fireplace, paint the interior, swap out the blinds for window treatments, and reconfigure the kitchen? Yes, we would like to do that. But all in all, it looks like a solid house in a good neighborhood for a decent price.
