Spring is around the corner, everyone’s busy, and weekends are sacred.

At Flyer Homes, we understand all of these things.

But, and you’re going to have to trust us on this one, our new listing at 311 E. Prospect Street in the beautiful Washington-Willow Historic District is a special-enough home on a special-enough street in a special-enough neighborhood that you’re just gonna want to carve out some time and check it out at the open house, set for 2-4 p.m. this Sunday, March 12.

In fact, for those that need a little extra convincing about just how special this gorgeous home is, we developed the handy quiz to help you decide for yourself whether you should come see this one-of-a-kind place this weekend.

And not the kind of quiz that tells you what Sex and the City character you are, or which Ryan Gosling movie character is your boyfriend. This one’s much more functional than that.

This quiz could lead you to the home of your dreams. The one you’re going to make life-long memories in. The home you become the person you’ve always wanted to be in.

You could also check out these photos at homeonprospect.com and start imagining yourself bathing in all that beautiful natural light, hosting a gathering in the spacious back yard, and transforming that detached studio into the hobby room you’ve always wanted. Imagine the garden you could plant. The outdoor movie nights out back. Taste the popcorn.

But the quiz below works well too, and is probably a faster way to get to the same place. Simply fill out the quiz below, tabulate your score, and use the guide below to find out if this open house is right for you (it probably is).

The house when it sat on the corner of Trenton and College Ave, facing east, prior to being moved to its current location in the 1950’s. It was built in 1922 by one of the Lewis brothers.

How the house looked in 1985 when the current owners purchased it.

The current owners started renovation in 1985 with the kitchen and dining room. In this photo, a truck was taking away plaster and lathe from the exterior walls for insulation installation.

The deck was added in the mid-90s, while working on repainting the exterior.

The garage was added and the porch renovated in the early 2000s.
