This Historical Newport Home Featured on Cheap Old Houses' Instagram is for Sale for $197,000

This Late Victorian Queen Anne home in Newport built in 1885 desperately needs someone willing to do a large renovation.

On June 24, the popular real estate Instagram Cheap Old Houses featured this Newport home as a part of its "Save This House" series. 

The August Sauer House could be a beautiful home one day. The space is filled with original details like the Kensington tile, pocket doors, intricately designed fireplace, ornate woodwork, a slate roof, a wrought-iron fence and much more.

With four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a space totaling over 3,000 square feet, this home has so much potential. The house sits on a 0.2-acre lot on a desirable street in Newport.

If the $197,000 price tag wasn't enticing enough, because the home is on the National Register of Historic Places, some renovation costs will qualify for tax credits up to 30%.

This home is located at 832 Central Avenue, Newport. For more information, reach out to listing agent Jessica Kirkpatrick. Find the original listing here.
