What $500,000 Buys You in New Hampshire, New Jersey and North Dakota

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this home is located in central Fargo, less than a mile north of downtown and a mile southeast of the North Dakota State University campus. An elementary school is four blocks west and a hospital two blocks south. Mickelson Park and the softball fields with a toboggan hill are 800 m to the east. The house is just a few minutes 'walk from a farmers' market and numerous restaurants.

Size: 3,726 square feet

Price per square meter: $ 123

Inside: A vintage front door with original fittings opens into a foyer and living room with carpeted floors (there is hardwood underneath this pile), lacquered moldings, decorative pillars, a wood-burning brick fireplace, and windows in bay windows or filled with leaded glass. Wooden floors are exposed in the adjoining dining room, which has a built-in vintage sideboard with wall units with a leaded glass front. The salesman modernized the kitchen, removed a back staircase, added a pantry, and designed and built the antique white cabinets with butcher block tops. He also installed a farmhouse sink and stainless steel appliances (including a Capital six-burner gas range and pot filler). Much of the main level is wired for sound, with speakers added in the dining room and kitchen.

Upstairs, the master bedroom has hardwood floors and a deep bay created by the building's tower. A walk-in closet with built-ins leads to a second bedroom. (Both rooms also have custom closets.) A third carpeted bedroom opens directly to a balcony overlooking the backyard; it was reinforced if one wanted to add a hot tub. The fourth bedroom has parquet floors and two exposures. The hall bathroom on this level has a combined bath and shower.

In the basement, the seller installed a second kitchen and bathroom with corner shower and created a carpeted room as a guest suite. An unfinished storage and laundry room is here, and there is more storage space in the attic that has been wired and piped.

Outside space: The house sits on a grassy corner lot, surrounded by arborvitae, and has a covered porch supported by Doric columns and a deep back yard. The seller added an irrigation system. Parking is in a detached three car garage that leads to an alley. The third booth contains a workshop.

Steer: $ 5,839
