It consists of 12 duplexes (24 rental units) on South Locust Avenue, Holmen, WI. 16 of the units are two bedroom and 8 are three bedroom. All units have an eat-in kitchen, single car garage, washer/dryer hookups and clothes lines in backyard. The two bedroom unit has one bathroom, the three bedroom has one and one-half baths.
