My opinion- Another small older Grass Valley home for $300,000. It is a 3 and 2, but just 1036 sf. The rooms are small, tiny really, and the home is a Victorian, which has charm, but also is raises issues regarding the age of the systems in the home and the permitting that was granted with each of the many upgrades and remodels that this home obviously has gone through in the past 100 years. The home looks quite modern, but was all the work that was done to upgrade the home done by contractors, and does the home meet the current codes? Only a detailed inspection will reveal if this home is a good value or a potential money pit.
And what about those rooms in the detached building? Right now they are just storage, but could they be made into a studio apartment? It is unlikely that a conversion of that type could be done with permits. However, there are plenty of apartments and second units in Grass Valley that were not done with the knowledge or permission of the city. There is some potential here for conversion to living space, but whatever use beyond storage that this building is put to, it would most certainly not be permitted by the city.
