Tuesday Trinity: Diamond in the Rough
The homes on Elfreth’s Alley may be the favorites, but we know streets like Iseminger have homes that are just as special. Take this three-story golden nugget with a “communal green area,” for example.
Situated on a private block between 13th and Camac, this diamond in the rough may at first glance appear like too much of a renovation hassle. A closer look, however, reveals the property still has a certain historical charm: hardwoods dominate each floor, wood beams are on the second, and built-in bookshelves and French doors on the third. Additionally, a spiral staircase leads all the way from the tiled basement kitchen to the top level.
Of all the advice I think its future owner would need to hear, I think one Linus van Pelt said it best (only he was referring to something else): “It’s not bad at all, really. Maybe it just needs a little love.” Take a look in the gallery below.
