Cincinnati Preservation Bargains: 1852 Carll

1852 Carl street is a classic Victorian waiting for loving new owner. 8 rooms 5 bedrooms, 2 Baths and offered at only 22,900.00. Sits in a 64x115 foot lot!

This house has a great classic staircase that could be stripped and refinished, Formal parlors and dining room and under that vinyl siding is likely some very nice detail based on what similar houses on the block look like. I can see this house restored with period wallpapers and lighting and it would be a stunner! Really nice porch too. Hardwood floors under that carpet. This is a good 'campable ' house while you restore it.
Offered by Brett Keppler 513-225-1790, TREO REALTORS, 513-731-8736 MLS 1218260

"I think this area is poised for a major turnaround. The two local slumlords who owned some of the better houses have gone under and the houses are being snapped up for restoration. With that stranglehold of section 8 largely gone, and the proximity of this neighborhood to downtown I predict this neighborhood will steadily improve in the next 5 years. There already are houses under restoration over there so you will have like minded people near you."

Do you know of a Preservation Bargain. A house that needs to be saved from the clutches of an investor or slumlord? If so send me the details with photos and contact numbers and we might feature it here. Thanks to this series, several historic homes are now in preservation minded hands. Restoring Cincinnati One house at a time!
