    OK it needs some work, but this is probably my all-time favorite kind of house. I tend to like the Colonial Revivals a lot more than I like actual Colonials…and I really do like actual Colonials.

      Agreed. I have a thing for revival styles, and this one really appeals. Big and sprawling like a Colonial Revival should be, it’s showily restrained, faithful and quirky, all the contradictions I like. Obviously it needs a good deal of work, but I hope with a conservative hand to bring out the qualities of the principal rooms and leave the secondary spaces which need more work and consideration (kitchen, baths, service areas) secondary. It’s a great house now, and could be easily be a beautiful place again. It’s a handsome street, too — and crazy cheap.

    Wow. I think this may be my dream fixer upper. This house is the very definition of “good bones.”

    This one has visual appeal and considering its in a major metropolitan area and its size, it seems modestly priced. With a generous amount of TLC this one could be a real showplace again as others have mentioned. I like that the multitude of windows allow in plenty of natural light. I think post renovation this could be a very comfortable home again.

    The 1928 date looks dead on right to me.
