Monthly Estimate* How much can I afford?

What a rare opportunity to own such a grand old home in Violetville ! This huge, never before available colonial that is built like a Sherman tank and it's ready to shine again with your ideas. Situated on a private oversized semi wooded lot with a detached garage, outbuilding and multi car paved driveway, you'll have plenty of room to do your thing. Gardening or gearhead ! you'll have privacy and solitude here with its massive yard that neighbors very little other than a large row of trees and greenery. Enter through either front or rear covered porch and you will find old world character and charm with huge rooms and high ceilings. There's plenty of hardwood flooring, grand stairs, shake siding and transoms. A huge floored attic down to a full basement with a game room. There are several updates that have been completed with care over the years but still a blank canvass to make it your own. Upon entering, you can't deny that someone's family spent decades here living a grand life. Pick up on that mojo and enjoy it moving forward! Buyer to determine if ground rent exists, seller will not redeem.
