Bob’s A-frame: According to the listing details, this abode once belonged to a gentleman named Bob, who saved the home from demolition.
Built in 1963, the three-bedroom home has 1,100 square feet of living space. The current owners rehabbed the master suite and living room, raised the roof to expand the kitchen, and added new windows.
There’s still plenty to do, but it’s still a plenty livable place. An enterprising buyer could stay here while building a dream home on the surrounding wooded acre.

Surrounded by parks, trails and limitless outdoor adventure, yet close to shopping and dining, this cute cabin could be the gateway to something special.

A walkout lower level makes it an easy home to expand if a buyer wants to go bigger.
