This is so random. Parts of it are cool and have potential to really make it neat. But what’s with all of the garages (why are there so many for a 2 bedroom home) and why are they full of junk. Also what’s up with the courtyard dumping ground?
Random indeed. Tons of potential, but yeah, it could be considered to be an interior junk yard.
Here's how the listing agent describes the property:
