Traditional Two-Story Tuned Up for Convenient Contemporary Living

Look up, down, and around the block around this home and you’ll notice a familiar theme. When this part of Saint Paul’s North End was being developed after World War II, the builder offered just two design options: one story or two. But while the designs of the neighboring homes are the same, each homeowner has added their own unique touches.

This was another of the many homes in Saint Paul that sat vacant for years before coming to NeighborWorks Home Partners. While structurally sound, the home was in need of some updates. It is receiving an all-new kitchen and bathroom, and a modified floor plan that opens up the kitchen, dining, and living areas.  A modified colonial style, there is a welcoming fireplace in the light-filled living area. The second floor has three bedrooms and a full bath. The large fenced yard includes a garage with an attached screen porch.

When the home is complete, it will be sold to an owner-occupant with a household income limit below 80% of the Area Median Income (currently $80,000 for a household of four.)

If you want to purchase this home:

We expect this home to be listed for sale in the spring of 2020. If you are interested in buying this or any other home, it is important to review your credit, prepare a budget, and get pre-approved for a mortgage before the house is listed.  If you’d like to find out if homeownership is for you, or get ready to qualify for a mortgage, we recommend meeting with an advisor or attending a Home Stretch workshop. NeighborWorks Home Partners also provides down payment assistance and home improvement financing.
