Instead of showing a house that most of us will never be able to afford - I thought I'd go a different route this week and show you a fixer upper - with amazing potential.
I decorated it completely last night - with lots of WHITE and maybe some gray's
A brand new kitchen -
For the price you could easily fit reno's into the budget - ( these prices are unheard of in Montreal - wouldn't happen - we paid almost 4 times the amount of this one - and it's far inferior )
We share a border with this beautiful State so it's one I'm familiar with - let's go !
Built in 1917
4 beds, 2 baths
2158 sq. feet
Lot size 10,454 sq. feet
Realtor - ANNIE HIGBEE
Site - ZILLOW
A window seat would be a must for me in that window area
It looks like the floors could easily be restored to me - and there's pocket doors - gahhhhhh !
And white walls would do wonders ( after they were replastered I think ) but there's lots of windows
Stainless steel - White Carrera Marble - New floor !!!
With a butler's pantry !!!
O.M.G. - with a butler's pantry
And the cabinetry looks to be in good shape actually !
The doors are gorgeous - it looks like they have original hardware too ( check out the oval back plate ! )
And the rosette corner pieces ( forget the name for them ) are beautiful too !
Look at those drawers built in on the side of the stairs
Here's a bedroom - I LOVE that there's a large window just outside it at the top of the stairs
Check out the original high baseboards
As much as I LOVE the railing - it looks a little low doesn't it?
But that newel post !
I guess this is the third floor
There's more pics on the site - if you click the link in the description above.
It looks like a place where hippies crashed in the 60's to me - I can picture lots of beads hanging everywhere lol !
But what do you think?
Does anyone else see the amazing potential in this home?
I'd love to see Nicole Curtis ( from Rehab Addict ) get her hands on this one................
I'm in love with it !
( well I'm in love with the bones of it would be more truthful I suppose )
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone -
