Midwest Preservation Bargain: 803 California, Columbus ,Indiana

This may be one of the best Preservation Bargains we have featured. It is in a challenged, but improving, area of Columbus Indiana. Columbus is nationally and internationally known, for its architecture. This Towered Italianate is priced at ONLY 22,900.00! Currently a four plex, this historic home , once owned by an important figure in Columbus early history, is on the market.

Stylistically this has a lot going for it and the multi-family was done on the cheap so taking the extra kitchens out should be easy. This house retains almost all its 2 over2 windows and the corner bayed tower adds a great deal of architectural interest to the classic Italianate form.

The staircase is dramatic and the house still has its wide baseboard and period trim (rare with apartment conversions). Thus is a HUD foreclosure and is for sale for owner occupancy, so bring your hammer and your pocketbook , but the end result will be a landmark eligible home.
