Harvard Heights fixer

This well-worn 1905 Craftsman on South Hobart in Harvard Heights was reduced recently from $499,000 to $450,000.

I went to the open house a couple of weekends ago. The place needs massive amounts of work, a state of affairs that is not necessarily evident in the photographs below. The removal of a horrendous 1950s (?) "family room" addition in the back would be a first priority, along with getting rid of the peeling linoleum and cheap paneling in the bedrooms, among many other chores.

Here's the listing.

1806 South Hobart.





Harvard Heights has an active Neighborhood Association and many of the other Craftsmen houses on Hobart and adjacent streets have been (or are being) lovingly restored to their period charm.

1800 block of South Hobart, Harvard Heights.

Although this area is part of an HPOZ, which may prevent major alterations to the original exterior this house, I still couldn't help thinking it could be improved by removing the overly large, obtrusive gable on the porch and replacing it with a treatment that would allow the façade to be more visible.

Probably not allowed.

  1. no no no - the gable is fine - what's missing are the horizontal lines from the missing clapboards. (well, that's my opinion)
