Around the corner

Once in a while I will brag on this neighborhood, a neat little postwar strip (two blocks wide, half a mile long) about four and a half miles from the middle of town, an area I always assumed would be beyond my resources ever to live in. (I’ve now been here almost ten years. Go figure.)

This particular house, now being offered at about $10k less than I might have guessed, is probably a cut above most of the single-story houses within a half-mile radius, and it’s been done up nicely. It’s owned, of course, by someone I hate to see leave, but life is like that sometimes.

    I’m holding out for apartments in the 1st Nat’l Bank Bldg.

    I don’t blame you one bit, but it may take a while.

    I did see the residence on top of City Place (across the street), and it’s pretty doggone sharp.

    It’s less than my 1-bdrm apartment!

    Some of the smaller ranch houses to the north — typically, 900-1100 square feet — can be had for $100k or less.

    Thanks for sharing this. You have a great neighborhood that seems to have an tighter sense of community & involvement from its residents than many I’ve seen.

    I love your home Charles . . think it is just nearly perfect and almost like it was built just for you :)
