Long vacant, soon to be a home again.
The neighbors will tell you that this home was once a happy and friendly place. But it was one of many homes to fall vacant in the foreclosure crisis, transforming into a trouble spot on the block. Though it was boarded up, squatters took up residence, and it became known as a drug house. (it later became home to a squirrel, another story with an unhappy ending.) NeighborWorks Home Partners was able to acquire the home and began a complete restoration, with the goal of it once again becoming an owner-occupied property.
This 3 bedroom, 2 bath home needed extensive work from top to bottom, including:
- roof replacement
- new heating system
- new kitchen
- new 3/4 bath and mud room/pantry on first floor
- repair of cracked plaster walls
- new bathroom on second floor
- new windows
- rebuilt front porch
- repaired and restored hardwood floors
This home is now for sale! The listing contains the stunning “after” photos. This home will be sold to an owner-occupant whose income is at or below 80% of Area Median Income.
