Would You Like to Buy a Craftsman Fixer in Woodland?

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006


I am such a sucker for historic homes. Perhaps it's because I didn't much appreciate or see the value when I was younger. They were just houses. A place to live. (This is what happens, perhaps, growing up in the suburbs, ewww, it's not new.) But then one day you realize how significant these older homes are. Or, at least that's how it happened with me. Complete transformation resulting in a fixation.

Others feel this way about older homes. It's an undescribable urge to preserve for future generations. And that's what I believe this Craftsman has going for it. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link and see more photos: Beautiful 5 Bedroom Craftsman Fixer in Woodland for Sale.

From the curb the home looks in reasonable repair.  It's a nice opportunity for someone who has the skills or resources to fix what ails it.  And, with it's historic appeal and location, I suspect that special someone will appear before long!

I understand your fascination with these beauties - and when they are refurbished with thought and care, they are exquisite.  I'm sure this old soul home will be sold soon. Nice article.

And it's a corner lot by the pics.  I love corner lots.  This Woodland fixer will find the right buyer sooner than later with you behind the marketing wheel.

Elizabeth- I remember watching a flipper show on HGTV and one was on Craftsman style homes. He did a wonderful job and you could tell how much he wanted to preserve what he could.  I love the buffet in the dining room ...all that wood!

Elizabeth, what a beautiful home, and with that front porch, most buyers fall in love quickly.

Myrl Jeffcoat I received many phone calls yesterday about this property. Much to the chagrin of my next-door neighbor in Hawaii who hates it when my phone rings

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD I can't help my attachment to these homes. They are such treasures. I know it probably sounds hokey but you can "feel" the history, so it makes you want to restore and protect.

Chris Ann Cleland You and I are alike that way. I love corner lots, too. Fewer neighbors. But surprisingly, and you probably already know this, most buyers prefer to buy in the middle of the block. Makes them feel less vulnerable. But us thrill seekers, we'll go for the corner lots every time!

Kathy Streib Yes, I love all of that original wood in the dining room as well. It's just so GRAND. The dining room and living room are my two favorite areas of this home. It's what buyers also see when they first walk into the home. And all of the bedrooms are roomy and spacious.

Joan Cox Ha, ha, ha, yes they do fall in love quickly. A buyer could fall in love with this house without ever stepping foot on that front porch -- just driving by could do it.
