2923 Jeffries Ave, Cypress Park
Beds, Baths: 2 BR, 1 BA
Floor Area: 1,243 sq. ft.
Per the Listing: “Do you have an incredible imagination, a large tool box + power tools, and a love for early 1900s Craftsman homes? If so, you need to take a look at my newest listing in Cypress Park. This 2 bedroom/1.25 bath home offers just over 1,200 square feet of living space, is situated on a 7k+ square-foot lot, and will be offered at $399k. While it’s unfortunate the owner prior to my client stuccoed over the wood shingles and laid some shiny tiles throughout (including a floor-to-ceiling job in the bathroom), there are still all the wonderful built-ins and plenty of original wood trim throughout. This place has all the potential you can handle at a price that won’t make your pocketbook go thirsty!”
Sadly, it’s all too rare to encounter a listing that doesn’t try to sugarcoat a property’s shortcomings. (And even rarer to encounter one that uses the quaint-as-hell word “pocketbook.”) We like the cut of your jib, Richard Buckisch of John Aaroe Group—please keep tellin’ like it is!
