Only five, short blocks away from my apartment is a gorgeous shotgun double for sale near the corner of Cambronne and Birch Streets. Built in 1916, it features hardwood floors, high ceilings and it appears as if a lot of the original architectural detail is intact. Both of the kitchens have been updated to my standards and I love the beautiful, stained-glass windows above the front doors. It also has a nice-sized back yard, though it needs some serious plant (perhaps even a garden?) love because it looks to be all gravel or cement.
The house is priced to sell at $249,000 which is really pushing it for me, but just think…I could stay in my beloved ‘hood!
