A Mostly Exterior Job

What it needs: The boiler is relatively new, and the roof is in good shape. The big job here is stabilizing part of the foundation, plus restoring the exterior and the carriage house. The current owner renovated the two apartments upstairs, but the house can easily be turned back into a single-family. Either way, you’ll have an heirloom that can be proudly handed down to family of your own.

Shown: A kitchen in one of the two upstairs apartments.
