Over the weekend, BrookLynn816 toured a house she'd seen on Brownstoner in October of '07, and on Craigslist last week: 1375 Dean Street. The five-bed, two-bath George B. and Susan Elkins House, from the Civil War era and individually landmarked, was advertised as a handyman's special, but our reader says that doesn't aptly describe the condition. "I can surely attest that there are NO mantles, the main floor banister was completely ripped out, windows are broken, etc. Till this day, people are still rummaging through the place as the owner has not cared to lock the place up. There were several radiators lined up at the door." The house is listed at $300,000, and one contractor estimated it would cost at least that much to fix it up.
