Midwest Preservation Bargain: Italianate in Burlington Iowa

Burlington Iowa is a quaint river town with some incredible architecture a great main street program, an active historic preservation movement and today's Midwest Preservation Bargain. Priced at only 23,500 this will not last long.

This house clearly has some remodeling and some of the things like the corner whirlpool tub may not be to everyone's taste BUT if we look beyond that this house has a lot going for it.

First of all Its a large Italianate , it has a classic vestibule entry and paired entry doors, A gracious curved staircase too. Yes its missing mantels (but you can add those back) and yes you will need to redecorate but it also has a serviceable kitchen and what looks like great floors after sanding throughout.

It wouldn't take much to return it to its original roots. This would be a good first time restoration home as you could probably live in it from the get go

More info: 1028 N 6th Burlington IA
