The flier says:

“ADORABLE VICTORIAN ROWHOUSE WITH LOTS OF WINDOWS AND LIGHT! GOOD PHYSICAL CONDITION BUT NEEDS KITCHEN, UPSTAIRS BATH. WHAT A GREAT CONDO ALTERNATIVE! YES THIS IS A HOUSE NOT A CONDO!”

More info and photos found here.

The reader writes:

“It obviously needs work (like, um, a kitchen), but it seems like even if you put in $100k (which seems high) it would be one of the least expensive 2BRs in the area. But I don’t know the neighborhood that well–does sketchy stuff happen at the gas station next door? And has anyone ever lived near a gas station–does it suck as much as I could imagine it would?”

Hmm, I’m not too familiar with this area so I’m hoping some of the Hill folks can help out with describing which neighborhood this actually is. This is a pretty small house at 490 square feet. Does $259,900 for this location sound reasonable for those in the know?
