Portland Heights Short Sale

This home sits right across from Ainsworth Elementary which is a plus or minus, depending on whether a chorus of children's voices at recess is music to your ears. The entry space is a bit awkward, and the home has quite a rustic feel in it's finishes- the interior perhaps reflects the falling into hard times of the seller, but I see a lot of possibility for bringing out the charm with some TLC this fine 1906 home deserves. It has a rare four bedrooms upstairs, all respectably sized, but no master bath. Perhaps a master suite can be contrived with three bedrooms? Another rare feature an actual back yard. Sadly, it is a short sale, but this could be an opportunity if one has the time and guts for the process. $700,000
