Here is what the seller has to say about this home:
Moved to this location in 1900, this folk Victorian was saved from the wrecking ball but needs another owner to take her to the next step. The wonderful layout makes the house feel much larger than it is, almost an open concept that allows the line of sight to flow into multiple rooms at once. As much of the house has been kept original. The woodwork on the first floor has never been painted and retains its warm, rich tones. Elegant columns separate the entry room from the parlor. The parlor boasts a large picture window with leaded glass and beautiful pocket doors leading into the dining room. Restored hardwood floors throughout the first floor. First floor also includes a half bath with new vanity and toilet. Kitchen was originally destroyed by a broken pipe and was completely gutted, new red oak flooring has been laid but room remains unfinished. Upstairs bathroom has original claw foot tub and original sink. Three bedrooms upstairs, one has been brought to livable condition, the other two are unrestored.
A new metal roof was put on 5 years ago, and a new water heater was installed at the same time. Furnace is older but has worked great. House is insulated. The front and sides of the house have been painted but the back is not. The electric panel is newer, and a few of the first floor outlets are newer, but most of the electrical is original. What little plumbing there is in the house has all been replaced. Newer washer and dryer in basement.
1614 SF, 6 rooms, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Full bath and 1 toilet room, 792 SF in the basement
Currently Assessed at $65,600.00

Great Curb appeal!
This a GREAT winter project for a contractor with the ability to have fixed up by the time the Spring market rush hits. Small town living, and just a short drive to Cedar Rapids.
