The Central Avenue firehouse that goes up for auction on Tuesday morning is too much for me. I can't handle it, can't even consider bidding on it. What if I got it? I'd run out of money in a week of trying to renovate the thing.
Such a crumbling beauty. I love the outside, the facade, and the location. But inside?
Take a look.
The tragedy is the water damage. The extension in the back is water-logged. Soaked. The main roof leaks like a swamp. Pull off the roof and you'd find rotting beams and damp wood.
I'm no builder, but I'm betting that the dead squirrels are the least of the problems up on Central Avenue.
Such a shame. I'd love to have this firehouse as my primary residence.
