A historic restoration! Another West End historic home renewal is happening on the corner of Decker and Dutton. This house has had a long, checkered past- the new owners are carefully renovating this little beauty.

Recent Home Sales: With the real estate market in flux and a West End landlord who has found it necessary to sell several properties- there’s lots of activity. Yes, there has been “flipping” -homes bought by investors, quickly beautified for resale (often without benefit of  permit one suspects ) but the end result may be new West End owners/residents who can enjoy downtown living. Here’s a few recent sales: Nov 28th- 135 W. 7th Street; Dec 12- 225 W. 8th St. $322,000; December 5, 107 Decker $170,000.
