This side-by-side duplex in JP is a fixer-upper with potential. On a cul-de-sac near Seaverns Avenue and Green Street, where a single-family home of half the size can be found with the same list price, investments will be worth while. According to the listing, the antique townhouse was once a stable to one of JP’s grand homes, and it was later moved to this location. Both units are included in the list price—one with two bedrooms, one-full bath, and one half-bath, and the other with one bedroom and one bath. Both units have exposed hand-hewn beams, replacement windows, and newer plumbing.
