According to the listing info, this 1888 Greystone sitting just outside the Jackson Boulevard Historic District has never been on the market. Technically, it was on the market for a week in early spring. But we're not gonna get nitpicky. Must've stayed in the family all these decades. The listing also details the interiors without displaying them, so we'll just have to trust that only "a little TLC" is needed. The home has 13' ceilings, "vintage details throughout", pocket doors, french doors, mahogany staircase, four bedrooms, three baths, and a possible 5,800 square feet should you seek to maximize FAR. Of course, that doesn't exactly tell you much about the existing square footage. We'll go with large enough. The property also includes a backyard with DIY garage possibilities. Suffice it to say, this is truly a fixer-upper. How much for the privilege? $688K.
