Cincinnati Preservation Bargains: Race Street OTR

It has been a while since we featured an OTR property. Most properties on the market seem to be 'speculator priced' and have major issues , so its nice to come across a rare single family in a stellar location that is a good candidate for restoration.

1832 Race sits across from Findlay Market (The grey house in the photo). A 3 story Italianate home this hsoue has a nice street persence. Most importantly it has a two car garage . 8 rooms , 4 bedrooms, 3 baths. When most property in this range is just a shell this house is a bargain at only 12,000.00  MLS#1264169 , this home is offerred by Jim Haven at Sibcy Cline.

Do you know of a Preservation bargain? A historic home that just needs a preservation minded owner to bring it back to life? If so email me at victiques@gmail.com and we may feature it here. Since we began this series dozens of Cincinnati homes have been rescued from the clutches of slumlords and the city bulldozers

Gosh that does seem cheap, I have seen properties within blocks of this one that appear to be in similar condition for low six figures.
