Such a shame the damage a fire can do, but this really doesn’t look too far gone at all! So much original in this house!!! It must have been stunning! Built in 1897 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Six bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 2,923 square feet. $75,000

From the Zillow listing:


What an opportunity for the right person. This great property has far too much history to mention here, but it was the current owners dream to bring this historical home back to its original glory. Unfortunately there was a fire which has pushed them beyond their capabilities. Time for someone with additional resources and/or skills to come in and take on this great project. Research has been done, the ability to pick the home up and move it can be done. The current owners had a quote done to pick the home up and relocated it outside of town for approximately 40K. Structural engineers have deemed the home save to enter, but please be careful as you move throughout the home as there is a great deal of debris throughout the structure. Offers on this property will be collected for the first 30 days of the listing. Contractors and vendors are welcome to enter the home and investigate.
