This 1924 Victorian beauty is the ideal project for ambitious, visionary renovators. It boasts stunning hardwood floors, a sweeping staircase, and a lovely wraparound veranda perfect for relaxing with a cool drink. The spacious three-bedroom property offers a full bath and two powder rooms, along with abundant living space. It was most recently used for medical offices and would require rezoning, some creative renovation, and the addition of a kitchen to restore it to its previous residential splendor.
