With all the work in OTR and the skyhigh prices being asked for shells, The West End may present the best Preservation Bargain Downtown. No where can you find High end town homes and mansions at affordable prices. Every time I feature a West End Property, it sells quickly, often to out of state Preservationists looking for their Dream homes who see the West End as the future Premier historic downtown address and with the number of restorations in the area find yourself asking in the very near future "what happened to the West End? its so expensive now!' Hindsight is always 20/20.
Nowhere else in the downtown can you find a 4700 square ft brick home with a 3 car garage for the price of 22,000.00. This High Style classic home has architecture you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else in town Yes it will need restoration but when you are finished you will have a luxury home with fine amenities minutes to Findlay and Vine Street shopping and of course everything downtown.
