Now would you keep that? Or re-do the whole kitchen? I have no idea.
Oh wow it's got a circular bed in one of the bedrooms. I wonder if that's included?!

the expansion potential is "temendous".

How is this ~$500/sq.ft. ? This is a very good block. The lack of parking does not explain the lowish price.
Is the uncertainty that planning will allow a 2->1 conversion tarnishing this house ? Even if planning didn't cooperate, how can they prohibit using this as a SFH ?
On the stove - nice antique but I wouldn't want to have to rely on that to produce a big meal.

I was also wondering a bit at the price. The floor plans are a bit strange - the one bathroom pr unit seems to be accessed through the kitchen, far from the bedrooms. That, the complete lack of parking, and maybe there is something else hiding behind the "consukt planning department". Would seem better as a pair of rentals rather than a SFH, but perhaps there is a tenant eviction or other hindrance?

Of all the things a house like this may or may not have...think of those without ANY home who are trying to get back on track.
We should all strive to make donations: food, clothes, volunteer, money to any local group helping those in need.

A factor in the price is probably the unfortunate remodel in which the house lost its Victorian front and architectural integrity. This house is a poster for all the historic policies the planning department now enforces.

Granite was a very bad choice for that kitchen.
And what is hiding behind the shower curtain in the bathroom?
No garage, no parking, no sale at that price.

Warm thoughts? Photographs 6 and 25 show wall heaters throughout. That can indicate it has no central heat.
I suspect this was just slapped up as a cheap apartment building when it was built, then these owners have tried to make it into a more upscale building by improving some of the finishes.
Deep down, it's just a cheap apartment building with some modestly upscale fixtures added. And now they want over a million dollars for it.
Good grief, I think we're all going to be laughing about this one in a few years. It might sell to some fool between now and then, but "what were they thinking" will be the question that gets asked of them.

It looks like the bedroom is in between the living room and the dining room... that could be a bit awkward...

Happy Thanksgiving to Satchel. Whether it's Satchel Paige or Satchel Armstrong that is the Godfather, thanks for the great posts.
