Midwest Preservation Bargain; 303 S 1st St, Boonville, IN
A special thanks to one of our regular readers John S for sending me this one.
This towered Queen Anne Home is in the town of Boonville in Southern Indiana and while a small town its within commute distance to Evansville. FIVE bedrooms, 3 1/2 Bath and almost 2800 sq foot, this is a lot of house for the asking price of 79,9K.
The home need some restoration due to some unsympathetic restoration done in the 1990's but it can be lived in while you restore it to its period Victorian Elegance.
Nice trim throughout and good mantle provide a strong base for restoration. Take it back from the 1990's to the 1890's and we think its a winner. The home has two car garage and generous lot as well
