Preservation Bargain: 409 E Franklin Street, Huntington Indiana

Some exterior trim colors and gable paint would change the appearance dramatically
Huntington Indiana is well known for its great historic homes and at first glance one might just pass by this brick with hardly a notice, however I'm impressed by the inside and all the things old house lovers dream about. Things like unpainted woodwork, great buildings, pocket doors and a lot of space for not a lot of money.

Great stairs here
Nice large single pocket door
409 E Franklin offers all that in a late Victorian/early Edwardian package, at only 68,000, I'm amazed someone hasn't snapped this one up but since spring is coming you might want to take a look. Some trim colors added to compliment the brick would really make the outside, as nice as the inside.

Wow what a period built in
Period plate rails in dining room

small but colorful kitchen needing some updates but usable as is
