A reader gave us the heads up about 2050 and 2052 Ellsworth Street, two properties currently under construction in Point Breeze. One home is being rehabbed, while the other is new construction. Let’s see what these homes looked like a couple of years ago:
In the past
As if the unfortunate new facade wasn’t an indication, 2050 Ellsworth St. is apparently being redeveloped by an individual, not a developer. If we’re not mistaken, this particular property has been under construction for quite some time, and sported a bare cinderblock facade for several months. The current owner bought the property in 2004 for $16,600, and we’re guessing he’s intending to sell it once the rehab is complete.
2052 Ellsworth St., on the other hand, was torn down by developer Gold Coast Contractors after they purchased it at the end of last year for $85K. We’re guessing that the new construction home will look more like 2040 Ellsworth St., a project we told you about several months ago that’s since been completed, than the house next door.
That property, incidentally, sold last week at a healthy price of $312,500. Not quite a record for the neighborhood, but it’s definitely up there.
