House of the Day: Orient Avenue Fixer Upper
A reader sent us some photos a weird house on Orient Avenue that is not too far from an odd condo project being marketed as Olive Park. It's ostensibly a far corner of Williamsburg, though some people consider it a far corner of Greenpoint. Here is the description that came with the photos:
A guy with three crazy dogs used to live there, and moved out last month. The property is up for sale, but all the doors are wide open. My roomate and I wondered around there taking photos because it was so crazy...there are lots of cats...and smells HORRIBLE.We might add that it looks pretty creepy too. Is that a burned out car in the backyard? A sale is listed last summer for $1.25 million to Flushing Avenue Realty which, in turn, got a permit on Monday from the Department of Buildings for permits to remove the existing windows, seal them and install new doors. Brownstoner wrote about the property last year, noting that it would likely be a development site. We found it listed on Craigslist for $2.5 million as a "great investment/development site."
