    Oh, wow. This was — and could again be — something amazing.

    It seems like a lot of money for such a huge project. Restoring this one would be no easy feat. But it’s got so much to work with, so much of its original goodies left intact!

    I’m wondering what happened to the trim they’ve removed (you see some laying around, but not all), or why they removed it in the first place. Was it easier to update the wiring? I’ve never tackled such a project.

    It sits on a nice, beautiful lot on a pretty street. It’ll be a fine house for someone with the time and/or money to finish it. I just hope it’s a restorer rather than a renovator or “remuddler”/flipper.

    I like the fireplace and love the bathroom, but this house seems to have an odd layout. Does the front door open directly into the living room? I wonder where the stairs are located and what they look like, although with a private elevator, who needs stairs anyway?

    Its a great house to restore but I would try to get them to come down on the price. So much work to be done. But it would be an amazing project for someone. 🙂

    I can enlighten on a few of the viewer questions.

    Yes, Ryan, the front door opens into the living room! Like you, I find that a bit of an awkward arrangement, and wonder if many other Tudor Revival homes are similar. The main dining room is immediately to the right of the fireplace/living room, through the double doors, and then leads into the adjoining sunroom. That layout seems a bit unusual as well, facing the street as it does.

    If you walk through the door on the left in the dining room, you enter a breakfast room (with the built-in cupboard showing photographer’s reflection), and then further rearward into the kitchen (also having a built-in cupboard) and out the back door.

    The stairs are out-of-sight, located in the center of the home and behind a door just to the right of the fireplace. There’s a landing mid-way up, then the stairs pivot to the second floor. This is also the arrangement to the attic from the second floor.

    The photo showing the fireplace with coal grate cover and the opposite door being worked on, is a downstairs bedroom; it has an attached full-sized bathroom. Apparently, this is part of the original design (again, a bit odd to me). Adjacent to the bedroom on the left side of the house is a library. It normally is entered from far side of the the living room, but possibly (?) may also be accessed via the door in the bedroom.

    The elevator that is showing certainly doesn’t appear to be vintage, so I suspect it may be of more recent inclusion. I haven’t visited this property, but have seen some recent schematics and it appears that the current elevator shaft may extend upwards from the library/bedroom on the first floor.

    Presumably, the baseboards were removed in order to re-wire the house. Hopefully, they weren’t extensively damaged, and can simply be put back in place. Otherwise, I would expect it would be moderately expensive to replace them with similar materials and design.

    I would agree that the current asking price is too ambitious for a property that’s in such a rural area and requires such extensive restoration. Nonetheless, given a serious price reduction and assuming no other hidden defects, I’d consider it a worthy challenge.

    I contacted the realtor listing this home, and she said that it was built in 1925 for a man who owned an automobile dealership in a nearby town. It remained in this man’s family until a decade or so ago. Based on a supplied document, the home has remained unoccupied all those years.

    Not for the faint of heart nor shallow of pocket but enough period details remain that it could become a successful renovation. The elevator is also a plus especially for older folks or people with mobility challenges. I personally like it and see potential in the house.

    Rita;
    I received an e-mail today apprising me that the 1200 College St. property had dropped the asking price to 60,000.00. If I had the cash I would buy it tomorrow,pending an inspection of course.

    Thanks for the update, Mr. Mann. I’m evaluating the faintness of my heart and the deepness of my pockets.

      Last I heard it was pending sale but don’t know if the sale went through or not. I assume it did since it’s been off market since.
