Those on the hunt for a worthwhile project should take a gander at this $775K listing courtesy of Prudential Douglas Elliman. In the offering is a century-old home on .4 acres in the village of Southampton. The three-bedroom "can use some TLC"?the kitchen needs updating, the living room walls look unfinished, and a little color wouldn't hurt anyone?but we agree with the brokerbabble's claim that it's got "good bones." Install a pool and convert that garage into something a little more eye-pleasing and this could end up a mighty fine-looking place.
One rather huge caveat, though. The property's location so close to Southampton's Public Works Department leaves much to be desired. One side of the parcel borders the truck-filled grounds while another is adjacent to the department's entrance. Not exactly a quiet spot.
