April 9, 2020

Love Italianate style homes! Wish they had more pictures, but what they do show isn’t that bad! Interior is nicer than what I thought it would be. This home was built in 1874. It is located on .33 acres in Saginaw, Michigan. The property has a fenced in backyard with a large deck. Five bedrooms, one bathroom, and 2,980 square feet. $40,000

From the Zillow listing:


Historic Italianate style home with recent updates including bathroom remodel, paint, flooring, and more! Partial roof, new furnace, and hot water heater all done in 2018. This home has two levels dedicated to living with a huge bonus room on the second floor once used as a servant’s quarters with it’s own stairway to the kitchen. There is a 3rd floor attic and a cupola on the center of the roof accessible by stairway from the 3rd floor. The kitchen features a huge pantry and a bonus room with huge storage closet. The back yard is fully fenced with a large deck off the back door. While there is continuing work being done on the house and yard, the exterior needs to be painted, some interior painting may need to be done, and the kitchen does need to be redone, most of the floor also need to be done. Work to be completed by current owner is interior painting, fixing broken window panes, replacing kitchen steps, and yard clean up. Owner is motivated to sell and will entertain reasonable offers.
