An eagle-eyed reader spotted this listing for the rundown wood-frame home in Prospect Heights at 580 Carlton Avenue, now on the market for $1,999,999. Turns out the house has its own website, too! Here’s what the owner promises: “This historical re-creation of one of the oldest homes built in the Prospect Heights Historical District will feature cedar clapboard, moldings, & windows inspired by the original fenestration resurrecting its 160 year old character. Pick all your own finishes including: kitchen cabinets, appliances, countertop and backsplash, floors, bathroom tile & fixtures, lighting design & fixtures, moldings and paint.” Construction should last until this October. What do you think? There’s a lot of work to be done to get this building back in shape. It previously sold for $480,000.
