Historic charm in the heart of Carbondale! This delightful house is located only blocks away from the SIU campus, downtown, hospital, and the city square and is ready to be your income property or your home. This home features a homey front porch, plus original wood floors, woodwork, and brick fireplace, which is flanked by built-in, glass-front cabinets. Home has been modified over the years and now has a huge, sunny kitchen on the first floor, along with 4-5 bedrooms (room with fireplace can be a used as a bedroom or a cozy den), updated bathroom, and spacious living room area. The second floor features a separate, outdoor entrance, a kitchenette, bathroom, and bedroom. First and second floors can be occupied separately or as one unit joined by an interior staircase. House sits on a vapor barrier-covered crawl space plus usable basement. Basement includes updated furnace, water heater, washer/dryer hook-up, and circuit breaker box. The back yard has been used for parking but can be restored to grass. This house passed its most recent Carbondale rental inspection, and it has brought in over $1000/month. If you’re thinking of it as your new home, the house may qualify for Carbondale’s “Single-Family Housing Conversion Grant” of $5000. The seller is extremely motivated, and the modest reserve price makes it an exceptionally worthwhile rental property investment–or it leaves plenty of room for restoration or additional renovation – your choice!
