HANDYMAN SPECIAL: 

This is a unique listing which offers opportunity for the right person.  It needs work, especially shingles, which patching has only provided a short term fix.

If one looks for a weekend cottage getaway from the city; this property offers a pristine park like lot with a 2 bedroom house; 732 sq' so size is not tiny. Two bedrooms and bath upstairs... living room and dining room with 10 x 18 kitchen.  No basement. This is a heritage home... built in the 1880's.. so has the wooden floors, built in china cabinets.  Kitchen flooring exposed.. LR/DR covered in vinyl.  Windows are not original wood.. glass sliders changed in the 70's.  House is insulated.. has a 200 amp service and electric forced air furnace.. on town water and sewer.  So not like a primitive cabin with no utilities.  Still has the brick chimney so wood stove could be put back as it had in earlier years.

The location is park like.. there are 16  100 yr old oak trees, rare to find any other location in town with so many.  House is canopied with these stately big trees.. totally private setting in historic area of Emerson.  North side of house is vacant bush, never developed. 

This is a house which can be fixed up as a cheap initial investment residence, low investment rental or a weekend cottage. 

With 200amp panel, electric furnace... vinyl siding.. not original old doors... up to the buyer how much renovation is needed to suit.  Has a detached garage with power to it. Taxes are minimum $250 after rebate applied.

Two fridges included.. one works.. other needs to be recharged.

Asking $21,000 or OBO... price of the lots.. house comes with it.
