A Minnesota woman is giving away her four-bedroom home for free because she's had trouble selling the place she describes as 'godawful ugly' for more than a year.
But whoever snaps up the property will have to move it out of Jordan County as owner Barb Kochlin has a deadline of three months to get rid of what's becoming a problem for both her and the city.
The real estate investor and property manager bought the brewery complex the house sits on in 2011 from her grandmother Gail Anderson, who was the first female mayor of Jordan.
Barb Kochlin is willing to give away her four-bedroom property in Jordan, Minnesota for free but still can't find a new owner
Real estate investor and property manager has been trying to get rid of place on a brewery complex for a year
Kochlin says the 'architecture is pretty outside' but there's 'no Old World charm inside' the home in Jordan
'The city says it's ugly. I say it's historic,' Kochlin told Star Tribune. Although she also said that with a 'cork backsplash, horrible wallpaper and fake brick' it's from 'some era when nobody had any taste'.
With no water and sewer connections, the house was moved there in 2002 and has been vacant for more than 20 years.
Electricity, heating, ventilation and air conditioning have recently become available but that hasn't helped find a buyer.
The new owner will need to pay around $20,000 to move it from the brewery land and $150,000 to fix up the place
