Vacant Warehouse Lights the Spark of DIY Imagination

New, 3 comments

This three-bedroom between Hancock and Second Street in Kensington is being marketed as a "warehouse-style home," which after all the warehouse fires, may not seem like a winning gambit. But how else can you describe a house with so much open space that also allows you to drive into what could potentially be a living room? This is an opportunity for DIY types who want maximum flexibility and a large Home Depot credit card bill.

For those unskilled in the ways of a Skilsaw, however, beware:

The space can very easily accommodate 2 more good sized BRs and plumbing is roughed in for 2nd BTH. There is a stairwell in place to the roof just waiting for a new deck with spectacular views. [Emphases ours.] And FYI for buyers with hyperacusis: "There is all kinds of new construction going on in area even on same block."

Size: 3 beds, 1.5 baths, 3,360
Price: $359,000
What we love: The bathroom floor
· Listing: 1520 N. Palethorp Street [Coldwell Banker Preferred]
