About Edit

Lots of crows and "one bad-tempered raven" dominate the backyard, and most of the neighborhood.

Property Description Edit

The Victorian house has been subdivided into apartments for rental. There are hundred-year oaks lining both sides of the street. A well-kept lawn lies the space between the trees and the house with some feral flower beds and shade trees. The property spans the entire block from Stanton street to the carriage lane in the back. An enormous elm tree lords over the back yard, along with a carriage house overgrown with ivy. Granite walls covered in rosebushes separate the backyard from those of its neighbors. ~ The Newford Wiki

House Description Edit

The downstairs apartment is 1200 square feet of high-ceilinged rooms, and appears to occupy nearly the entire first floor. Upstairs are two apartments, and finally there is a top-floor apartment which, like the first floor apartment presumably takes up the entire floor.
