Looking for a project? This could be it! A great village location- on the corner of Chapel and Hodskin Street. The home definitely needs some TLC but would be worth all the work one would put into it. Could either be a single family home or could structure the home to be a multi unit…….so many possibilities!!

Beautiful piece of Wichita history. This over 4,000 square foot Steinberg Victorian is perfect for a renovation that will turn her into your dream home.

Beautiful old school building, large property with large triangular lot in the middle of the village – lots of parking spaces and large lawned area – grounds often used by the village for summer fetes with prior owners permission. Very close by to Green Bay with large population (300,000 metro population) 25 minutes away. Come and live the dream, focal point of the village, lots of possible uses, lots of space. Current owner bought the property as rental investment but has not found suitable tenant so is selling at bargain price.
