For Sale, House on Woolf Street

Literally on Woolf Street

(No, I don't know what the explanation for this is. The corner of the house hangs over the top of the curb. Following are a couple extra photos. The second seems to suggest that the side of the house has sustained impacts. There's a surprise.)

It looks like the whole house just slid off it's foundation. That's a money pit right there.

There's a street in St. Ann called "Easy Street."
---------------------
Lazy Lane is the major street through River Oaks, the Houston suburb where the oil executives live --

the house in the picture might be a duplex, probably built by the railroad (since the tracks were the backyard) -- the list is stillnot up, my guess is $125,000, a quick sell at 100K

I always wonder what the realtors think when they have to promote and try to sell houses like these. Can you imagine bringing any potential buyers to it? Goodness.
----------------------------------------------
it is still not online, there are two houses just up the street for 295K and 315K -- local housing prices have gone insane, everyone trying to escape Missouri (sorry Phoenix)

Wow I had to take a closer look at that one Jim - Just decided to drop in and check out a few of your posts...again. ;-)

I was confused at first I was like "Um so is the awning hanging over onto the street or something?" and then I saw that an actual part of the house was hanging over and woah...I wonder why it was built that way??
------------------------------------------
I will try to get a better picture -- I still think it was built by the railroad, which just did whatever it wanted -- but, I will try to find out

I think real estate agents must try to determine the price of good scrap lumber to use as a selling point.
-------------------------------------
I'll go by later today and take a better picture -- there is also another house close by that is a little strange
