This Queen Anne Style home at 904 N. 3rd was built between 1885-1895. It retains many of its original features, including the transoms and stained glass. The roof is less than 10 years old, but the fascia and gutters are in disrepair and have caused leaking and water damage to the ceilings upstairs. With 3 beds/2 baths and a main floor laundry room, this could be a beautiful home for a new family.
This large, two story house at 1161 N. 3rd offers plenty of living space. The inside is completely gutted and down to the studs. A new roof and foundation have stabilized the property, now it needs someone to finish the renovation and use it as a single family home.
This house at 915 N. 6th is the same floor plan as the one immediately to the north, which EPD sold last year to new homeowners who have beautifully redone it. So to see the potential of this house, look no further than right next door to see what it could become! At 2400 sq. ft. plus a basement it offers plenty of space. It is currently duplexed and needs to be taken back to a single family home.
This cottage at 717 N. 7th is believed to be a Lincoln-era home constructed between 1858-1867. There are several other Lincoln-era cottages on the same block. However, a rear addition has been added and the original porch has been demolished. It needs to be restored in a manner sensitive to the historical context and original appearance of the house.
This shotgun style house at 1117 N. 8th was built in the late 1890s and has 2 beds/1 bath. There are several examples of this style of home throughout the neighborhood, including some beautifully renovated ones in the 1100 block of N. 5th St., which shows the potential of what this house could be.
