Wait ’til you see all the photos of this ugly 1936 house in the F.Q. Story Historic District in Phoenix. I had the displeasure of viewing this house (these are my photos) and the pleasure to see the transformation of remodeling (as you’ll see below).
First up is the back patio with its falling down patio roof, shingles beyond repair, and ugly pink siding.
Here’s what the patio looked like. Everything falling apart from neglect. Outdated electric panel.
This is a close-up of the patio flooring. It wasn’t a concrete slab; it was wood planks. And the planks were broken through. Yes, there is a hole in the floor on the left.
Let’s go inside and check out the bathroom. Obviously there’s been water damage. The homeowner used the wrong type of material on the shower walls. Rusty tub and sink.

Now to the living room with its fancy drapes.
Another view of the living room.
Looking at the dining room from the living room.
One of the bedrooms with more beautiful drapes. And chewing tobacco spit on the wall?
Yet another bedroom. Maybe a rabid animal tried to claw itself out of the room?
The gourmet kitchen with its 7-paint-layer cabinets and sun-shiny sunflower wallpaper.
The flooring throughout the house was in terrible shape.
Outside now to the back yard. No landscaping to get excited about.
Here’s the garage.
Investors (house flippers) bought this house in late 2005 and completely renovated it in 2006: new hardwood flooring, new copper plumbing, new A/C & heat, new electric wiring, new roof.
Entirely new kitchen with granite tile counters and new appliances.
Amazing transformation of that ugly bathroom.
The new spacious back yard. They had no choice but to tear down the old garage.
This house is currently for sale for $280,000. The house is 1106 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 1 bath. No covered parking, however. But practically brand new from top to bottom. Contact me if you are interested in viewing this beautiful swan.
