Drove by this beauty earlier this week and just had to stop for a picture. I can only imagine how a listing agent might describe it:
House for sale. Cozy one-story with walkout basement. Lots of natural light. Needs a bit of TLC.
In all seriousness, one has to wonder why the owner (assuming he or she is not flat-out broke) did not simply raze this trash heap and perhaps do a basic site clearing before putting the property up for sale. My only guess is that the local zoning may allow a higher floor-area-ratio for development involving the extension of an existing structure, as compared to what is permitted for a ground-up new construction.
