To Flip or Live in Historic House?

I meant to post this before today, but have been working my fingers to the bone as a concession stand worker raising money for my daughter’s baton expenses … time is fleeting!  Before I get to the house, beginner baton classes sponsored by the Tennessee Twirlers start on Tuesday, February 9th at 6:00 p.m.  Classes will be held at the community center behind city hall.  If you have a daughter (or son too!) who is interested in becoming a twirler, it’s a lot of fun and builds confidence and self-esteem.  Call me if you have any questions at 491-2161.

Meanwhile, this house in the historic district of downtown Smyrna will be auctioned tomorrow morning (Saturday, February 6) at 11:00 a.m.  Located at 202 Hazelwood Drive, it has two fireplaces, but one is a two-sided for two rooms).  It has years of memories and a lot of potential to be an absolute beauty inside.

The home was built in the late 1800’s so you know it’s solid, however it does need updating (possibly plumbing, electric).  It would be a great project for someone to go in and remodel OR if you want to live in a historic house … to get in inexpensively (but be prepared for a big project).  Again, let me know if you have any questions and if you come, find me and say hello!  Here’s a link to the official info from the auction site.

  1. What about the third option, raze the historic house?

    I’m not a fan of old homes, I like modern conviniences like an attached garage, two-pane windows, and oh yeah, central heat and air!

  2. Hahaha… Michael.

  3. I think it’s a nice house… and could be much better!

  4. Kathy, did you attend the auction? Just curious how much the house went for.

  5. I was there… if you’ve ever thought about buying and restoring a historic home, the final price will make you want to cry that you weren’t there. $42,000.
