The realtor description: Outstanding duplex with 3 bedrooms and bath and a half per side. The owner side has fully updated fully equipped kitchen and baths, new carpet and new light fixtures. Slider off kitchen to paver patio and 2 car garage. Both units feature full basements equipped with washer and dryer hookups. Other features include vinyl siding, new windows and handicap access ramp all set on a wonderful 169 x 212 mature lot close to Nimisila Reservoir and walking trail.
Sounds pretty good right? We thought so too.
The house was built in 1969 and has only had one family living there since it was built. It is in great condition - especially the "owner" side which has quite a few updates. We are choosing to rent out the side that is already updated and live in the "fixer upper" side. This blog will tell the story of the makeover!
We have until April 21st to have to get the carpet ripped out, refinish the hardwood upstairs, install new carpet downstairs, get all the walls painted and move our stuff in.
It may be a challenging (but fun!) new few weeks.
