A very beautiful 19th Century Brownstone is on the market at 3930 S King Drive in Grand Boulevard. The 6/2 home, nicely differentiated from the block's Greystones, stares down vacant land across the Drive— one reason the ask is just $249K. Another reason is, per the listing, that renovation work was begun several years ago but TLC is still very much in demand. The last couple slides in our photo gallery speak to this need. Still, it might be a short sale worth considering— loaded with fine and mostly-restored original details. There's a fireplace in just about every room, hardwoods throughout, high ceilings, pocket doors, a newer kitchen, and one refurbished bath. In other words, if you bought it you could actually move in.
