This gorgeous home from 1933 has great bones, but needs work

If you’re looking to renovate a historic home, we’ve got the perfect project for you. The biggest home currently for sale in the University District is looking for an owner—and it needs some work. After a recent price cut, it’s now listed for under $300,000.

The Tudor Revival built in 1933 has a gorgeous brick exterior with half-timbering, a bay window, decorative arch, and some nice roof lines.

According to the realtor, it’s got great bones but needs updating. A new owner would have to add floors in the foyer, hallway, and great room, as well as baseboards elsewhere. The trim and wood staircase look like they could be refinished, and the walls are a bit weathered in places.

The kitchen has laminate countertops and old appliances and is also in need of an update. There’s currently no air conditioning, but the duct work has already been installed.

But in other places, the six-bedroom, 4,326-square-foot home is in great shape. The crown molding, ceiling medallions, wood paneling, and fireplaces have retained their beauty. The bathrooms—three full, two half—have charming tiles. There’s also a detached two-car garage.

Looking to make your stamp on a home? 18954 Birchcrest Drive is listed with Jasmine Bishop of Real Estate One for $299,999.
