Now, we are the proud(?) owners of this beauty. Sadly, it has to be torn down 1, because the city says so and 2, so we can get hopefully three units on it to rent out. You know, more bang for our buck.
Taryn and London call it the "ghost house". Now, I'm a sucker for old houses and I really do hate to see this one torn down. We've already had someone contact us who is interested in pulling out some of the trim and door frames to use in their older home that they are trying to keep true to the original design in. We also plan on pulling out the two sets of french doors and maybe some of the stair rails and ballisters. I'm still sad for the house though. And in case we've hurt the home's feelings I can attest to the fact that it was once much loved and very quaint. One of my best friends in High School lived here and it was different back then. It is so amazing what a few years of sitting empty can do to a place.
Wish us luck!!
