  1. I really like this one, and like it, too, for its old-fashioned look of “somebody’s parent’s house.” It would be nice to see the minimally renovated, concentrating on paint and any hidden repairs and improvements to the kitchen and baths — and maybe a simple reworking of that rear porch– but leaving the radiators and exposed heating pipes and some of the Colonial Revival touches and some of the wallpaper and simply rewaxing the floors and spending all the money saved on furnishings, not on trying to make everything perfect.

    Accustomed to center halls and circulation spaces, early New England houses often present unfamiliar plans, as this one does with its three small enclosed stairs and the rooms ringing the great central chimney mass. Here, though, I quite like it. It’s a homey, lovely house that’s immediately comfortable.

  2. Robt., I was thinking much the same about this place – that it would make a great home for a large family with lots of rooms for each to do his own thing, a large porch for summer gatherings, and enough bathrooms and ways to get to around that you’re not constantly “stuck in traffic”. I would have loved it as a kid, with a back stair to my 3rd floor BR and lots of property to run around. The interior doesn’t demand a lot of antiques either.

  3. Nice to see. Great job. I really like the exterior color – and that you can actually see the house now!

  4. It is so nice when a new owner appreciates the originality, and imperfections, of a period home. And kept the old radiators, too – so much cozier and visually appealing than baseboard. Wish there were more like you for all the old places out there!
