Here are some exterior shots of the house. The front faces Gates Street. The entrances is up an exterior brick staircase. To the right is the living room above the garage and to the left is a bedroom. We met the neighbors to the right, who seem very nice, and have been living there for over ten years. To the left is the side of a building that faces Cortland. First to get rid of: the bars over the windows and the overhang over the front door.
Here is the back of the house. The 'popped out' area is an addition from the 1950's. The deck is in poor condition, the stairs are deteriorating, and the addition leaks slightly. You get what you pay for. There is a decent sized back yard, the previous owners were probably better gardeners than we'll ever be. There are tomatoes, ginger, and other green things growing.
