  1. What a beauty! I just want to take the boards off the windows and the around the front and back door to let the light in. I bet it is amazing inside with those huge windows. Here’s another one to pray that the right person falls in love and brings it back to life. This one has so much to offer with the additional buildings and the history of the gardens. Again, why can’t it be closer to where I live! LOL

    What a unique house. So much potential too. I wonder if it was saved?

    this is something I would have jumped on when I was younger! It’s like a time capsule. Definitely worth the work. This could be a beauty again very easily.

    Just wanted to update that this home has indeed been purchased, and is undergoing an amazing renovation. (I live on this street and am very excited:) I actually looked with realtor but was too much of an investment for me…..
