Man versus machine

When the architect designed this Long Island wreck, he wasn't exactly thinking of two adults with 2.2 kids. At least half the house is devoted to garage space. Nevertheless, that fact didn't prevent the realtor from describing this wreck as a family home.

The floor plan confirms the rather idiotic design features. Getting to the bathroom looks a rather tight squeeze. The bedroom is also rather odd shape. Moreover, the realtor write up suggests that the house is connected to a cesspool rather than the main sewage system.

This house is currently listed for $219,000, giving a monthly payment of $1,300 at a 6 percent interest rate. Moreover, taxes are just over $300 a month. Meanwhile, the current tenant is paying $750 per month. This house is going to need a lot of price appreciation to justify that price tag.

This wreck was supplied by rooocat, who has an enviable record finding these wrecks. The MLS number for this one is 1798567. It can be found on If there are any similar cesspool enhanced properties out there, you know where to send them.
