It’s almost like the weeping angel in one picture is due to the state of disrepair this home is in. The Bartlett House was once a grand home built by a brick plant owner. It is said they threw lavish parties and guests would dance on the roof. The home was built in 1930. It is located on 1.83 acres in Malakoff, Texas. This needs a serious savior! Big cracks in the floors point to serious foundation issues. Sure would be a shame to lose this house though. Three bedrooms, one bathroom and 4,561 square feet. $75,000
