I love this row of houses on Irving Street in Mt. Pleasant. Think this one’ll go for $649,555?

  • Not my style curb appeal wise. But the inside is charming and this is a cheap house by MTP standards. I think it’s a great by for a young family with room to expand in the basement down the road.

  • I always wondered what these houses looked like on the inside. Way brighter than I expected. Kitchen needs some updating, but otherwise the interior is great (small bathroom though…). Seems like a good price.

  • I don’t know. At first, I thought it was charming, but once I got to the layout, it just seems kooky. The “master bath” is actually the 1/2 bath. The full bath is right outside in the hall…would be shared with the other two bedrooms, and any guests would have to go upstairs to use it. I’m just thinking that with that kind of price, usually if something seems too good to be true, it probably is. This would be a good house for a single person or couple with no children, but with plenty of money to spare to upgrade and “dekookify” the layout 😀

  • Great deal by Mt. P standards. Bet it moves quickly, as there are very few ready to move in rowhouses in the neighborhood at this pricepoint.

  • A lot of Mt. P rowhouses don’t have bathrooms/powder rooms on the first floor, unless they were added later. I lived in one like that for 15 years. You just get used to it. The layout, to me, looks pretty standard. IMHO, I think it will move quickly.

  • Also, it doesn’t have central air. That can be a huge cost/logistics nightmare to put in for some of these older homes.

  • Probably not a bad price for that area, but I wouldn’t pay that much for a house without central air and access to the rear/dedicated parking. It’s probably a good house for someone without a car.

  • Good deal. Will catch 700,000 in the end

  • This is a good deal. I saw this house when it first went on the market. The lack of a first floor bathroom is certainly a drawback but in Mount Pleasant this will sell for sure.

  • Good price for Mt. Pleasant…but like other posters have said, its a fair price because of the weird layout (half bath in master and no closet space from the looks of it), AND no central air. I had to put in central A/C into my old rowhome last year and it was a huge (and expensive) pain in the a*s. kitchen is bright and back yard area is nice too, but I wouldnt want to buy this place unless I had the $$ to make some changes.
