December 3, 2018

The closet door with the built in vanity sure is unique! Haven’t seen that before! It would serve them well to include a diagram of this house with the listing. The Kahn-Vaughan-Atkinson house was built in 1890 and is on the local walking tour. Located in Parkersburg, West Virginia. Needs work, but this has a lot of potential! Seven bedrooms, five bathrooms, and 3,247 square feet. $155,000
