Restoration advice appreciated
First off~ If you are in the market to buy a historical home in Savannah, GA please do not open the link featured below. It is of a beautiful house that I have had my eye on for months and if someone swoops in and gets it before I have a chance to look at it, I will be crushed.
Second, I am posting this link because I come to this board with tremendous respect for the work, knowledge and collected wisdom found here. I live in FL right now, but plan to move to Savannah in the fall and have been watching real estate listings to get a feel for the market. I found this listing a few months ago, it is barely in my price range and I immediately assumed it would be sold tomorrow so I refused to think that this house could be for me.
It has not sold. The dang house is in my head. I have allowed my non-practical side to take over and booked a hotel, contacted a realtor and will fly to GA to look at this dang house in July.
I know there is soo much more to a house than a few pictures. So this might be a silly question...but ASSUMING that the BIG stuff is ok with this house (foundation, roof ect), looking at the listing, what work would you recommend for this house? What needs to be done/ what can be done/ what would you like to see done?
The kitchen appears to be a standard kitchen that a flipper would install, but how can it be changed to match the 'feel' of the old house?
I'm trying to learn numbers and workload amounts before falling more in love with a picture on an internet.
Opinions? Talk me out of it? Into it?
