I often have clients looking for a ‘starter modern.’ You know, an inexpensive MCM that a first timer or design conscious budget minded buyer can live in and work on and let their creative juices flow. But of course, it has to be in a good location and have room for an ‘upside’ once the work is done. Usually my response is that these are few and far between – so get ready for a wait….
Well, a house just came on the market last week that would be an excellent candidate for such a transformation. It’s about two minutes from Kenwood Towne Centre, is in Indian Hill Schools, and sits on about 2/3 of an acre. The setting is very private and the yard is lovely. It is a two bedroom (plus a study), one bath , two car carport little diamond in the rough. It’s about as mod as they come (there is even a cute little mod shed/studio on the property), and it’s priced at $99,900.
The catch? Of course at this price there has to be one! The I-71 sound barrier wall is in the back yard! Honestly, the noise level is not that bad and the wall does add a nice degree of privacy. The house sits back pretty far from the street and has a circle drive. It also needs a/c , paint, flooring, a kitchen, etc. There is room to add on. Take a look at these photos and let me know if you want to see it in person. I think it would be an awesome opportunity for the right buyer. Below are some more photos.
As of February 24, 2010, this house is PENDING and on its way to a new modern life! We found a modern buyer!
