A Steal in The Falls

This gorgeous historic house with tons of intact original detail and reams of woodwork is available for purchase in Niagara Falls for just $59,000!

It sits just steps from The Niagara Gorge at 666 Chilton Ave. The unfortunate street number aside, this is a real steal (I could have said it won’t cost you your soul).

Locals say this is a fantastic neighborhood with many preservation minded residents.  They say you can hear the roar of the falls through your windows. How extraordinary is that!?


The neighborhood, directly bordering the Gorge, has streets lined with mature trees and more extraordinary houses like this. Biking and hiking on gorge trails are at your fingertips, as is an easy walk to Canada.

It is a shame that our society has devalued treasures like this. But, society’s stupidity is your gain if you scoop up a place like this. This is a gorgeous Victorian house, in a beautiful urban neighborhood, next to one of the seven natural wonders of the world. This should be an extremely desirable property, especially considering the incredibly low listing price.

Here is the link to the realtor’s listing for more information.
