  • Good price. The corner unit – light on three sides is really nice.
    .
    Not my colors/decor, but for the most part fixable with paint. I like the color of the floors.
    .
    Two small nits – I would have put the washer/dryer behind a door if it needed to be in the dining room. And I’m not sure the deal with the closet/narrow space in front of the window in the bedroom; I’d need to see in person, but I looks like would have been better off shortening the closet or even taking out the window an making the closet longer.

  • It’s really cute and would be the perfect amount of space for me if it were in my price range.

  • Not much counter space; I don’t like the washer-dryer exposed in the kitchen; and the second room looks small. That said, this is otherwise an ADORABLE house, with real charm, and looks really well-priced. I love the exterior, and just about everything inside.

  • what’s up with the sink directly on top of the dishwasher? how does that work?

  • What on earth is going on with the placement of the dishwasher? I didn’t know it was even possible to install one like that! Where is the sink plumbing?

  • Well, it’s very small, and that kitchen wouldn’t be all that fun to work in… But that lot is wonderful, and the neighborhood is very nice. I’d guess this goes over asking based on the last two factors.

  • Wow! What an incredible house! So much charm and a corner lot! That makes it feel so much bigger and brighter. That should go fast, and over asking.

  • The kitchen is small, but maybe someone looking for a two bedroom won’t mind. Kinda odd to match that kitchen with planters out back though, usually the kinda people who want to grow their own food also like to cook. The interior is very yellow too, counters and cabinets.
    .
    But overall, not bad.

      Not everybody has the cash flow to redo their kitchen. My wife and I love to cook (her more than me). Our kitchen blows. We’re building raised garden beds in our back yard this weekend, yes, to grow food. We’d love to renovate our kitchen someday, but it won’t be soon.

  • Great property and for not that much money you could make it far more livable – open the kitchen/dining, hide the laundry (or move it upstairs, even better), and opening up that smaller room – redoing that bathroom to be considerably more functional and get rid of the dead space in the ‘sitting area’. It could easily be done for 60k probably with middle of the road fixtures assuming everything else is up to snuff (plumbing, for example). It’s adorable and with those fixes, awesome for a young family.

  • It has some weird layout quirks, but there is a cupboard under the stairs if you have to take in your nephew.
