Cincinnati Preservation Bargains: Seton Ave, Price Hill

Most of the homes we feature on this series need a lot of work. Its rare to come across an intact house, with incredible woodwork, that you can simply move in and enjoy while you redecorate. 1122 Seton is one of those rare houses. offered at ONLY 39.900.00
This late Victorian is brick with classic details with a wide front porch, perfect for that porch swing, but the real surprise is on the inside where you are greeted by gorgeous unpainted woodwork. Grand staircase, Formal parlor and dining room, incredible fireplaces and built ins, this house was never molested by apartment conversion and is simply a rare find.Generous 50x199 ft lot, 8 rooms ,3 bedrooms 1 bath, full basement and attic for expansion, beveled and leaded glass it doesn't get much better. The only drawback I could find was the property taxes were high ( easilly appealed) and the wallpaper while nice is not period and should be changed but those are minor issues and easily correctable. If you are in the market I'd hurry on this one! MLS 1187719Listing Courtesy of Joan Lane-Isbell 513-325-8547, COLDWELL BANKER WEST SHELL, 513-922-9400.
