"Looking for love: This classic Greek Revival in the William Street Historic District is a diamond-in-the-rough awaiting restoration to its former glory." Brokerbabble translation for the Vineyard Haven listing:
Single Multi white fixer seeks handy and/or financially secure buyer with sense of humor and/or rose-colored glasses for LTR.
The 2,784-square-foot circa 1880 four bedroom, three bath sits on .38 acres just down the road from Wes Craven's former abode. While there are no interior listing photos, here's how the listing sums the place up:
The potential abounds: Maintain the three pre-existing living units or refashion the premises into a grand single family home. Incorporate a professional home office, if you wish. Turn the lofty, unfinished attic into a 3rd story living space. If you restore the house as a single-family home, add a guest house in the quiet and generous backyard with the towering border trees and antique ballast stone fence. The septic system was upgraded and certified for six bedrooms in 2011. This project lover's opportunity can become one of William Street's finest properties, in walking distance to all the conveniences of town and harbor. Priced below assessed value. To be sold "as is." Architectural drawings for a three-unit renovation are included in the sale. The current lay-out features one apartment on the first floor and two units on the second. Asking price for the Vineyard Haven spread is $724,500.
