This week at Hooked on Houses we’re touring houses for sale in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Cincinnati. I think you’ve all got the hang of the Fantasy Open House by now. Just like with House #1 on Rookwood Drive, you take the tour and then place your vote.
The next one on our tour is a more moderately priced (compared to the first) $350,000 Arts & Crafts-style home with 5 bedrooms and 1.5 baths. It has stained-glass windows, original woodwork, front and back staircases, 9-ft ceilings, and built-ins galore.
Will you want to buy it, think about it a while, or immediately walk away after you look inside?

Here’s the MLS description of 1308 Edwards:
Unique 3 story stucco/brick home. Walk to Square. Fabulous Arts & Crafts details/stained glass windows/orig woodwork. Front & back staircases, 9ft ceilings, built-ins. New roof/drainage system. Screened-in porch/patio for grilling.
So what do you think? It looks like it has a lot of potential. But are you be willing to pay $350,000 for a house that could reasonably be called a fixer-upper?
Your choices are: 1) Buy it, 2) Sleep on it (if you’re undecided), or 3) Walk away without remorse.
