If you are looking for ample natural light, this house may be the right choice for you! Talk about an "open" floor plan.

Of course, you can not approach it, enter it or be on the grounds as it is incredibly unsafe. The asking cost? Only a quarter of a million dollars.

This house located in Kyle, Texas experienced a house fire.

So what the heck are you paying for, if you can't step on the property? The "opportunity" to rebuild. Or rather, the opportunity to pay for what must be a nearly complete demolition, the removal of all these (probably toxic) materials and their disposal, and then you could rebuild a house nearly from scratch. The basement might be okay.

Given the proximity to Austin/San Marcos coupled with the local services, stores and amenities Kyle has to offer, this opportunity to re-build in this location is unique.

A quarter of a million dollars for a huge responsibility and a big money pit seems unreasonable to me, but perhaps Katy does have neighborhoods that are that desirable. This house has been listed on Zillow for 122 days though.

What really raises an eyebrow is that the house tax was assessed at $223K in 2022, presumably before the fire. Have house values really gone up that much in that area, that you can charge more than the house was worth a year ago- for a burned-out husk?

Here's a peak inside what $225K in Kyle, Texas can buy you. Try not to get too depressed. And while I am being sarcastic, I truly do feel sorry for the homeowner that experienced a catastrophic fire, and I sure hope no one was hurt and their insurance paid to replace all the things that were replaceable.

I think from the pictures that the fire started in the kitchen. The melted ceiling fan blades that look like a dead octopus in another room are also quite haunting.
