REAL ESTATE FOR SALE | (back to top)

HOUSE FOR SALE by owners. Two-story house in middle of town. Three bedrooms. Great starter house in need of minor repairs. Unfinished two-car garage. 937-572-9821.

A LOCAL REALTOR was once heard to state that what this village needs is more duplexes. Well, Stancliff Development will be delighted to fill that need with two lots, back-to-back. They are part of the small Stancliff Development that is completely edged by a paved walk, well buffered against Dayton Street noise and only a short block and a half from both the middle and high school. All lot owners are automatic members of the neighborhood association. One lot faces the dead-end street, directly across from the connection to the Yellow Springs bicycle path. The other lot looks across the small, habitually dry detention pond and on beyond it to the view through some treed (not zoned for development) backyards. The developer has many duplex building plans, all having the option of three bedrooms, two baths, porch and/or patio and a garage, and some a double. Price for the two combined lots is negotiable. Interested? Phone Coldwell Banker, 937-470-l867 or the developer, 937-767-1130 or 937-767-8404. And, finally, think on this. Buy the combined two lots. Build a duplex and live in half yourself. Have a lifetime rental income from right next door from your parents, your own grown kids, your good friends or just plain politely nodding neighbors.
