There is a house on one side valued at A million twenty five, and two million dollar house on the other side. You can remodel and/or build on an addition. You can build as much equity as you want! For a new modern look in the front of the house, at a very reasonable price; you could add shudders and gables w/pillars over front door and front porch. Or you can add an addition and make it worth a million. I'm taking the dillydallies (came from g-ma) and 1/2 the hostas in front yard
