When we were house hunting here, nothing we liked seemed to be for sale in St. George. When we were apartment hunting, this carriage house beauty was available:
Fernando just didn't want to commit to a house. It was understandable - he was still in school. The people that did buy the house did a really nice job in sprucing it up on the outside. I've always wanted to see inside (we never looked at it) and just found a virtual tour online (click next.)
Another gem for sale in St. George is this beauty:
Ok so it needs a little curb appeal but let me assure you this one is amazing inside. I've seen it. It needs a lot of work but would be so worth it in the end. There's a butler's pantry, a huge kitchen, huge bedrooms, a beautiful staircase and when Fernando saw the sunroom on the back of the house he wanted to sell our house immediately. Ah, Fernando: don't you remember all of the work we did to our house?!
I don't recall seeing this one around in person but it looks to be in fine shape from the listing:
At the high end of the market (two blocks from our house on our street) you'll find one of my favorite houses in the neighborhood:
There are still some fixer uppers to be had as well for cheap prices... like poor next door:
That's really not the most flattering representation of next door. Unfortunately, she's seen better days and her current owner has forsaken her. Useless fact: she was once part of the J.C. Green estate along with our house and now stands where the stables used to be:
This one is around the corner and so cute - I love the round porch. I can imagine that it might need some work considering the super low price:
Another deal nearby:
On the edge of St. George, you can find this cozy house:
The photos show a central air conditioning unit and a great deck. At less than the price of a co-op that's a steal. I love the portico - can't you just see it with grey weathered clapboards, little window boxes and a black sperm whale above the door all New England style?
