THE RIVER CITY NEWS MORE COVINGTON NEWS THAN ANY OTHER SOURCE
After being put on the market last summer, an historic Covington home finally sells to an Ohio couple that plan to keep the building a multi-family residential property while performing lots of renovations. The exterior is first on the agenda while the couple will also renovate one unit for themselves. Realtor Rebecca Weber tells The River City News that the couple was in town last summer on a Ride the Ducks trip down the river and noticed the for-sale sign in the property's yard. "The Ride the Ducks people always brought up the fact that a rare property was for sale," said Weber, who represented the home with fellow Huff realtor Joyce Herthel. "(The new owners) will do the same high caliber of work that was done to the Carneal House. It's going to be exciting for the whole neighborhood to breathe new life into that property." The River City News is withholding the final sale amount, which was in the high six figures, by request. That number will be made public in the coming days.
