The “Before” that precedes the “After”
The “Before” that precedes the “After” is currently 2816 E Northern Parkway, your next renovation project. This Craftsman style house in Hamilton was part of the “Dollar House” program in Baltimore in the 1970’s, and it’s been in the same family ever since.
This property is definitely a mess, but it’s rehab potential is enormous. Need we remind you of a very similar rehabbed property not far away, 500 East Lake Avenue – “from eye soar to grandeur”? Note the original wood ceiling of the spacious front porch here, just waiting to be refinished.
Details like the stone fireplace, wood floors throughout, and spacious, light filled rooms are key to its future success. The Craftsman style originates from Southern California, and was born out of a fusion of modern and Asian architecture, as well as the English Arts and Crafts movement, according to this Houzz article on the subject.
Even Pinterest has a lockdown on how this style has been rehabbed and updated over the years.
This listing doesn’t just include the house, but also a classic automobile that needs a facelift. Ladies and Gentlemen, the 1987 Cadillac Brougham (sample picture below courtesy Fleetofcads.com). Note, this is an “after” picture of your potential new ride.
Update: As of 12/2/17 the property is Under Contract in a multiple offer situation.
Listed at $99,000.
