Tell me all about it: There is good news and there is bad news here. The good news is this home sits in the middle of a large yard and has lots of curb appeal. The bad news is the interior has been utterly gutted. For the right buyer (cash only in this instance), this could be a fun rehab. For everyone else who likes their property to be accompanied by walls and plumbing, move on.
