In South Buffalo: A Unique Opportunity at $129K

A new listing in South Buffalo, at 17 Armin Pl, features this sweet little brick and stone Victorian.  This is a rare style of house on the south side.  It has wonderful vintage detail inside and out with multiple fireplaces, a mini tower, a cozy porch, roof top iron work, and lots of wood trim. It is possibly one of the oldest houses in the area, but looks to be in great condition.  The listing describes this gem thus:

Wonderful opportunity in South Buffalo, 3 bdrm Single Family with Carriage house (income potential) & 6 car garage. Beautiful woodwork, pocket doors, gas fireplace. Stunning “judges paneling” in what is being used as a bar room. Spacious bedrooms, master has large walk in closet and window seat. Carriage house has 3 bdrms, hardwood floors & 1 1/2 bath. Don’t miss this opportunity.

Taxes are $1940 per year ($161 per month).  With a mortgage of $610 and lets say, $100 per month in maintenance plus insurance you can be in this house for about $900 a month.  The listing suggests that the garage / carriage house has rental income potential.

I have never seen this house in person, never knew it existed, and was very surprised to discover it in South Buffalo.  I love that the city still holds surprises like this.
