massively damaged Victorian on massive lot – Fire House

Second floor = TORCHED

Fire House needs everything on second floor + upper ½ floor, some of the rest of the house perhaps salvageable, but not guaranteed. Hence <$10k asking price, which is pretty much just for the land. But maybe not – Bonus if you choose to save this large, once-excellent VICTORIAN spot.

BIG brick SFR – 2,626 square feet. Restore to beautiful single-family brick wonder or convert to duplex. Or build a new dwelling (or 2!). If just want the land, the lot is one of the biggest in Swissvale at over ¼-acre. Land value alone worth more than asking price.

Detached 3-car garage structure on the property; perhaps can’t be saved, but can be rebuilt. Brick & foundation in both main dwelling + garage in-tact, but that might be about it! ☹

Pictures show main floor wasn’t affected much – shows the solidity of the property, at the least.

Location is XXX-prime! And you could have potentially the only 4-BR SFR rental in the municipality.

If you keep it:

  • 2,626 square feet – living
  • 11,355 square-foot lot
  • 4BR, 2 full BA
  • covered rear porch+deck; enormous front porch
  • central heat
  • nice original wood downstairs + staircase to refinish
  • decent kitchen!
  • WalkScore: 50
  • 0.9 miles to Edgewood town center, I-376, etc.
  • OFF-STREET parking – long driveway; fix/replace big 3-car garage in rear of property
  • LL components (eg, H2O tank, furnace) probably still work
  • good ARV and/or lot value

Extra-high ceilings, extra-low price.
