From the Zillow listing:


Cute “fixer” cottage has SO much potential but needs your finishing touch. Best of both worlds: city convenience w/ country charm! Delightful location and beautiful yard includes buildings for storage, fun weekend projects, yard toys! Originally a 3 BR/1 BA but construction started to turn 3rd BR into a primary suite adjoining bath/closet. Materials are there to finish much of the project (incl. vanity, shower components, flooring, etc) but occupants had to move quickly and could not finish project. Could be put back to a 3rd BR easily, if desired. Unheated sunroom & stairs to bsmt. not counted in sq. footage. Will not qualify for FHA/VA lending. Home being sold AS IS with no repairs by seller. Buildings needs some repair . Roof believed to be approx 14-15 yrs old. Well and pump (for optional water source) need repair. Community pool, golf course and tennis courts close by.
