With the First Ward’s accelerating townhomification, the fate of this vintage Victorian could have been different. Restoration won out, however — as indicated by the snazzy new tin roof, crisply redefined porch, and perked-up paint on the recently completed overhaul. It’s located in Barclay Estates, a subdivision south of Spring Street Studios and the Heights Bike Trail. The project’s more extensive efforts included disassembling and stripping the windows and trim and sealing the original paint of the bead board ceilings and walls. Other improvements included all new plumbing and electrical wiring. Reportedly an 1899 home, the property appeared on the market with the new year and has a $339,999 asking price.
