Cincinnati Preservation Bargains:Northside

This Second Empire Townhouse is located on Chase Drive in the Northside. Just listed at a "bargain" price of 15,000.00 by Transaction Realty ,513-898-1744.
The 3 story Brick sits on a 23x100 foot lot and is in an area that is starting to undergo some redevelopment and still has its original slate roof. This would be a knockout with a new exterior Preservation paint job.
This house has high ceilings, several gorgeous fireplaces and the house seems to have been spared major "remuddlings" over the years. At a truly bargain price this would be a good house for a 'first time' restorer or would be a breeze for a experienced Old house person. Much of the woodwork has never been painted and there is a nice walnut staircase. I don't think this one will last long, it is priced at less than some new cars . This would be a truly elegant home with period wallpapers and chandeliers in an area that is improving and close to downtown.
Do you know of a "Preservation Bargain"? Is there a house priced really well in your area that just needs a caring owner? If so send me the details including a price and a contact and I may feature it here as part of this series.
