    Colonials must be really hot in real estate right now, because agents love sticking that label on everything.

    • Grace

      Yeah, considering that it’s an American Foursquare…

      • JS

        For real – this is *THE* classic foursquare type. It’s not even close to being a “colonial.”

  • spookiness

    Every real estate agent (or anyone) should spend $30 and get A Field Guide to American Houses by Virginia & Lee McAlester. Just because something is old doesn’t make it “colonial”.

    Who needs parking for 4 or 5 cars in the city?! What could be a nice backyard is a giant parking pad. Looks kinda ridiculous.

    • CHGal

      Yeah, this would be great space for a nice porch or backyard. All that concrete is tough on the eyes.

    • annonny

      Somebody looking to rent the place as a group house?

    • Petworth_dude

      Could build a garage with in the back with a studio or one bedroom aparment on the second level as an income producing unit.

      • textdoc

        Depending on what percentage of the lot the house currently occupies, building an additional structure might not be possible.

  • Anonomnom

    Foursquare vs Colonial… Either way, I like the inside and that front porch! The backyard hurts, though. A lot. Would have to completely break it up and redo it before I could consider this place.
