An ivy-strewn Victorian in East Oak Lane has hit the market for $200,000, and while it’s the complete opposite of move-in ready, there’s no doubt it has potential.

Dating back to the 1920s, the six-bedroom, one and a half bath home at 6727 N. 7th Street has seen much better days. It’s wrapped in stone and boasts plenty of windows, though you’d hardly know all this given that the home is overgrown with foliage.

Still, inside there’s a lot to like, if you can look past the dust and debris. Says listing agent Brian Tuner, “This is really a cool house and has a lot of beautiful architectural details and just needs to find the right buyer to bring the beauty back to this home.”

On the first floor, for example, there are hardwood floors throughout, as well as French doors that lead to the dining room. There’s also a library here with a wall of built-in bookcases.

Upstairs, the bedrooms definitely need some TLC, but there are original details like stained glass windows and a clawfoot tub and tiling in the bathroom. There’s also the possibility of turning the third floor into the master suite or some kind of in-law suite, since there’s plumbing already installed.

The home is being sold as is, and only cash offers will be accepted. With an asking price of $200,000, that comes out to $67 per square foot.
