Cincinnati Preservation Bargains : 3571 Alaska Avondale
So of course when a 15 room 3 story Brick Queen Anne Mansion with Turret comes up for sale as good price you will see it likely featured on Cincinnati Preservation Bargains. Currently 4 apartments this once grand dame is ready to be returned to her former glory.
Big plusses are some original woodwork and stained glass, a generous 75x195 foot lot. The house is an Estate Sale so probably some bargaining room on the 75,000 asking price which of course would be 3-4 time that in any other city. Some other restoration is already going on in the area and city seems to be getting more agressive on teardowns of the older apartment complexes so long term may be good for this area.
MLS#1268565 and offered by JoAnne Jones and Associates.
