This 1906 house seems like it could be a good deal for a handy type, with its promising-looking built-ins and lousy kitchen cabinets, although it might need the work of a pro at this point--the house has been bank-owned since 2008. The listing says it has four bedrooms and one bathroom in the main house and a small unit and bathroom somewhere upstairs. The rambling old thing last sold in 2004 for $425,000. The bank's held onto it, listing in January this year at $231,900. Now it's down to $219,000 or $96 per square foot.
