Barely touched Oakland Victorian offers a window into the past

Decaying beauty in need of gentle TLC asks $669,500

Rarely do we see a home come along that can tell a story with a few well-worn wallpapered rooms and “diamond-pane” windows. The circa 1900 Victorian at 1812 10th Avenue in the historic Clinton neighborhood does just that.

Coming in at four beds, two baths, 2,499 square feet, this is a house in need of loving care. But whatever renovation will bless (or befall) this house, it currently provides a fascinating glimpse into the past. The house’s bones are stunning, from the window panes and exterior columns to the coffered ceilings and hardwood floors.

The midcentury light fixture (as seen in the final image below), seeming out of place among the decaying floral wallpaper and sun-damaged walls, is especially intriguing. That’s one element the future owner might want to keep.

Asking is $669,500.
