Needs work, but it’s full of character

Note: This house originally listed for $259,900 and the price has now dropped to $245,000.

This lovely brick home in northern Ferndale dates back to 1925, and has been in the same family since 1950. The family has rich history in the area; Dale Edwards started the Indian Ridge Traders company in the basement of the house, building on his hobby of Revolutionary War re-enactments at Greenfield Village. The family history in the area goes further back to O.W. Burke, who helped build the Fisher Building (among many other buildings) and lived a block north of the house on Cambridge.

It’s a cute historic house but definitely needs some TLC to bring it back. Inside, find hardwood floors, a brick fireplace, a vintage kitchen, a den with built-ins, unique railings in the stairway, two porches, and original tiling in the bathrooms. It also has a fenced yard and a two-car garage. It’s listed for $245,000 by Ron Clem at Hall & Hunter Birmingham.
