Love all of the original details! The tile surrounding the fireplaces are amazing! Love the exposed brick and the pocket doors! Built in 1870 in Louisville, Kentucky. This is a large home at 4,000 square feet. This house needs a complete restoration. Mechanicals need to be updated as well as bathrooms and kitchen. Looks like someone started stripping the paint off of the woodwork. Six bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 4,000 square feet. $164,900

From the Zillow listing:


INVESTOR SPECIAL! This historic home is nearly 150 years old and features original tile & pocket doors still in good shape! This is a rare opportunity to get an amazing and HUGE home near downtown and complete it to your liking. The lot has room to build a garage eventually. This home would make a great Air BnB opportunity and could generate handsome profits given the size and proximity to downtown. The home needs new mechanicals, drywall, kitchen(s), and bathrooms. So much space to work with.
