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.
