For Sale: Five Bedrooms for a Steal in West Germantown

The listing for this property notes that it offers buyers “many possibilities.” Which is usually realtor-speak for “this property is dead inside, good luck!” In this case, though, buyers get five bedrooms where details seem to have been pretty well preserved since it was built in 1883.

The Victorian twin features two marble fireplaces and high ceilings as well as wide-plank hardwood floors, a lovely front porch and a back yard. Buyers will probably want to do something about the paint colors throughout, and the kitchen will probably need updating even before the pink walls come down. If you’re handy with  back splash installation and don’t mind a little drop ceiling, this place is a bargain.
