JUST LISTED: Fixer-Upper in Sturbridge MA - 59 Cedar Street

59 cedar street

Just Listed! 59-61 Cedar Street in Sturbridge MA.  This unique Contemporary home needs work but what a wonderful opportunity.  Consider this:

  • Central Sturbridge location, close to beach, park, elementary school, shopping, and restaurants.
  • Large, open eat-in kitchen with fireplace and sliders to back yard - desperately needs updating
  • Enormous living room with fireplace, cathedral ceiling and spiral staircase to loft
  • Living room and kitchen are central to the house, with two wings of bedrooms
  • Potential for fabulous master suite with office, full bath, and sitting area.  Or use this section of the house for extended family/guests - it has its own entrance
  • Two full bathrooms - yes, they need updating and some repairs too
  • First-floor laundry room
  • Full basement with workshop area
  • Custom built-in cabinetry throughout the house - no lack of storage
  • Potential for one-car garage - currently used as basement storage but could possibly be converted back to garage
  • Parcel includes two lots - house is on .34 acres and there is an additional .12 acre lot included

Be aware, this house has a leaky roof and needs work and clean-up all around.  A recent appraisal came in at $205,000 but the sellers are offering it at a discounted $173,000.  This could be an ultra cool house for the fearless buyer with style and vision.  This property represents a fantastic opportunity to live in desirable Sturbridge MA.

This is an estate sale, and is being sold in as-is condition.  Not bank-owned though, so we will be able to get quick response on offers.

Talk with your lender before you call for a showing.  Some loan programs may not allow the purchase of a property that needs roof and other repairs.  If your lender gives you a green light (possibly a 203k rehab loan), then come on in.  Bring your contractors, and let's see what it will take for you to restore this truly one-of-a-kind home.
