You'll have to use your imagination, but man, can you believe how awesome this house could be with a little (maybe a lot) of work?

Not to mention the history and serious girl power involved. According to the house's Zillow page, Cornelia Brierly was one of the architects on this project and according to Wikipedia, Cornelia was one of the first five women to study architecture at Carnegie Tech (now Carnegie Mellon University), which is where I work and got my Masters degree. Hello, fellow alum! She was also the first female fellow of Frank Lloyd Wright.

Look at her crashing this boys' club!

This house is listed at $115,000 and is oozing with potential.

It would need some serious polishing, but it would all be worth it to sit by that fireplace and drink and Old Fashioned in the middle of winter.

If you're in the market for mid century style fixer upper, please buy this so we can see it come back to life.
