1042 Tennessee St, Dogpatch

c. 1977
Historically significant 1,240 square foot 2 bedroom 2 bath Eastlake Victorian worker's cottage built around 1900. Last sold as a fixer for $625K in 2009 ($75K under asking). A permit search revealed that the kitchen was remodeled in 2010 and a bathroom was added in 2014. Current estimates value the property at around $1.5 million. Less, if you still need to bring your contractor.

Suppose its been gut-renovated (without permits, I guess) and contemporized to the point  where it startles the crap out of you when you walked in....Then it's probably worth more!

I like that, what looks like, a modern roll-up garage door is almost an exact replica of the original door. But is that the original garage door? Were these workers cottages built with garages?

I'm looking into it.

2009 BROKER BABBLE: Located in the the Historic Dogpatch Area, this home needs work. Bring your contractors to look at it. This could be a real charmer if repairs are made to it. Has all the 1900's moldings and workmanship. It just needs someone to bring it to life.
