The backyard was really big compared to the tiny yards that come with the new homes being built. The only way to get a large yard is to buy an expensive home, buy acreage outside the city limits, or buy an older home. It has very high block walls. Very good for dogs. I could do a lot with this blank slate.
The kitchen is original from when it was built but the cabinets and counter top are in great condition. It would be pretty easy to upgrade this kitchen if I wanted to. I would use this kitchen as-is if I bought this house, at least initially. If I got bored then...PROJECT!
Here is the view from above. It's a corner lot. I would love to add a patio and courtyard out front to make use of that big front yard that really has no purpose.
It also has an RV gate although I haven't measured it to see if my RV could really fit through it. It would be easier to sell my RV if it was in town instead of out here down this scary, half washed out road.
The asking price is $70k. I believe it is owned by the bank. I checked Zillow.com and the neighboring houses are all in the $102k range. Comparing it to the trashy houses I saw yesterday, it shined above the rest. The flooring is a recent addition. Tile in the living room, kitchen and hallway and newer brown carpet in the bedrooms. The floorplan is small, only 1,250 sq.ft. and the bathrooms are small but it is exactly the sturdy, 3 bedroom, 2 bath home with large block wall yard that I was looking for.
