Before and after at 10 Mianus View Terrace

House flipping: this developer paid $900,000 for a split-level in July, moved a wall, added central a/c and new appliances, did some painting  and has put it back up sale this week at $1.450 million.

It's still a split, and its backyard remains problematic, but it does offer an example of how to modernize and transform, to the extent possible, one of those horrible 1960s houses. Not all of us can afford to build a new, $3.5 million house, and this developer shows how much you an do, at minimal expense, to make at least a rayon purse from a sow's ear.

The July listing, showing the house before renovation, can be seen here.
