Ok, besides the obvious cleaning- this house boasts a very nice big rocking chair front porch
Very open layout. From the front door you enter into the living room. The fireplace and built-in book shelves were painted. You can see the spacious eat in kitchen…
Coffer Ceilings – again painted… (someone obviously thought everything should be painted the same color throughout the house. But paints a small thing- you can always change that)
On the other side of the living room were French doors . Leading to a den- or possibly forth bedroom
Large open, renovated kitchen with island- and newer appliances (which is pretty rare to find appliances left in the foreclosed homes in Westview/West End)
The home is a 3bed/ 2bath, plus the den with the french doors, unless you make that a 4th bedroom. Spacious Master bedroom, and average sized 2nd and 3rd bedrooms. There is also a laundry area/room in the back of the house with a laundry sink and folding table. The bathrooms were average, in good condition- renovated with nice tile work, and the larger rain shower heads.
Overall, I was impressed.
I’m planning to video capture most of my tours. I will have a YouTube site but will post links from here. Uploading photo’s is time consuming and you sometimes can not get a good look at most of the layouts- and floor/room size.
… stay tuned!
Here is another hidden gem in the Historic District- I just know when the right person buys this house it will be spectacular. This is a foreclosure- so you know the price is right! Actually if you submit the right offer, you could probably close and walk into equity.. but you’ll have to do some repairs. This one is also a 3bdrm/ 2.5 bath. Guess how much you’d pay to live in the city?
The upstairs room, which is the converted attic, has many built-in’s, and a bathroom. Great for a bedroom, library or office- or even a kids playroom! I also considered it a nice spare bedroom…but then I could hear my mother in-law from NY ask “Why am I being placed in the attic?” LOL..

You would think we were in the rain forest lol..I really like this picture- see the person within? You can not get a small idea of how grand this site is.. and this is just ONE site zoned for clean up…
this and more was causally thrown to rot and contaminate our earth…
I was really in shock! I could not believe the things we pulled out of the dirt. See the metal fan?
Look at our fearless crew!! And this was a steep hill of construction debris. Most of it was either wood, rotten sheet rock, tiles, and some wood planks with rusty nails !That did not deter these volunteers- they climbed up, and loosened some of the harder pieces for us below to grab and bag.
One of the key moments which stick out most in mind is that all of us thought we were volunteering for vine cutting and removal- NOT trash removal. When it said “We are the Trash Removal Crew” by our coordinator Ayana (sp?) for a moment everyone was said “what?” then one person said- “Well, let’s get to cleaning..” and another pulled a pail out of the wheel barrel and started picking up trash… it was ON…. It was wonderful to have shared the same space, and worked with these people, even for a little while. THAT was very encouraging, in the midst of all that is going on in the world we were united.
I have a few more, some of the reception as well. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend that- I had to run to a home buyers seminar I spoke at in Washington Park.
There are so many different styles of homes in the West End- from Traditional brick, Victorian and my favorite the Craftsman Bungalow… I thought this was a cute one- corner property (I love corner properties for some reason) I like how the stairs and path curve to the entrance of the home…
You will find very LARGE homes in the West End/ Westview area as well. I can think of plenty to do with all this space….
This multifamily unit reminded me of the homes in Crown-Heights, Brooklyn- NY. Easy access to Marta! Right at their door!
Many were for sale, and you can tell that they were once lived in and loved. I have to keep myself for coveting them all- if I could, I’d buy them all. lol… but that would be very selfish, since I couldn’t possible enjoy them AND my home… I hope we get some worthy owners very soon.
Did you know about the Westview Lofts?
I stumbled on them when I walked up Lucile… towards E. Ontario. It looks as if they are in the beginning stages of building a very nice mixed use area-new shops are on the way… and a cute coffee/book store….
This church was also on the corner Now I must find the time to go to the Lush Life Jazz lounge… food and Live Jazz, two of my favorite things 🙂
So much to see in the West End… too bad it’s getting colder. I guess I’ll have to bundle up on my walks, but I look forward to seeing the West End in the winter and the changes the season brings to the scenery.
