I think Highland Park has most beautiful old homes which keep appreciating in price.

Yes, there are some very pretty historic homes in Highland Park, but it's hard to find one for $2.3M these days, much less OP's $230k budget

Thanks Macbeth, I must have wandered outside of JH when I saw the two stories. I do tend to get turned around over there sometimes, it's just so hard to gawk and drive. I saw quite a few one stories I liked too and some super landscaping. You guys live a great neighborhood.

Not necessarily, we do have a few. Now if you were on a street full of 2 story homes you had probably wandered next door into Munger Place. It is another great neighborhood, that goes to the same schools, etc so we do mix a lot.

All the homes on Swiss Ave. are VERY old. Make sure you ask about plumbing, electrical and paint upgrades.

My wife's uncle lived on Swiss Ave. and was murdered in his home last year so there are security concerns with thieves preying on the elderly.

Yes, our homes are historic so older, that is part of the charm for many. IT's imoportant to ask those question anywhere you are planning to buy.
Unfortunately, there is a chance of crime in any neighborhood.Thankfully, murder is a rarity in Junius Heights, Munger Place, and Swiss Avenue historic districts. If this is the case I am thinking of, wasn't this a past renter?

Sorry about your family member.
Was this the case where the home owner allowed virtual strangers to rent rooms? Something that is not the norm along Swiss Ave.
And if I am recalling correctly, was it the house that was used in Night of the White Hot Pants?

I believe you are talking about someone who took in a homeless person and tried to help him. I don't really know the family but some of the members went to Woodrow and I saw some information about it on Facebook.

You shouldn't have a prob with your budget in any of the neighborhoods mentioned thus far, especially if you are ok with a 2/1.
Lakewood Hills (aka the C-Streets, formerly Gastonwood Coronado Hills as represented in the map in Lakewooder's post) is in 75214
