    I seriously love this one.

    By the way, this home makes the 2500 post on the site. 🙂

    Kelly,
    Congratulations on # 2500! Just wish it came with earning your first million from this unique site. It certainly seems to have a lot of Old House fans with new ones arriving almost daily.

    Nice house with the added bonus of some old photos to show missing exterior details. (minor, they seem) Some details suggest a house older than 1908, maybe going as far back as the 1870’s or early 1880’s. (or even earlier) Can’t say anything here really looks 1908-ish but it might have has some remodeling done around that time. Guess the historic photos on the walls are “staging”; seems appropriate somehow. Needs substantial work but seems to have promise.

    so funny how the walls are crumbling but there are still pictures hanging…
    & congrats on # 2500!

    As I was looking I had the same thought that it looked older than 1908.

    Ordinarily I’m not at all a fan of the “shabby chic” decorating style — in fact it’s the antithesis of what I favor — but there’s something so evocative about the layered deterioration of the interior that calls out for that look.

    The house is probably about an hour from where I live and I’m curious enough that a visit might be in order . . . .

    I can really see how good this house would look restored. I really like its layout, and particularly, the entranceway.

    I just happened to see this house the weekend before Xmas. It’s a charming little town not too far from I-95 & 58 in the peanut growing area of VA.

    I, too, seriously love this house.

    This house is so beautiful! Love the double front doors and the stairway. So much potential. Great bones, as they say!

    I can honestly say that i love the house as-is. I even think those “weathered walls” in the foyer and hallway look beautiful. This house looks so creamy and comfortable and filled with good vibes.

    That house is gorgeous! Love the inside, too!

    This was my great Aunt and Uncle’s house…My aunt lived there until she went to a nursing home in the mid-90s or there-abouts….spent many an hour there, and ate many a epic Thanksgiving Day feast there from the early 60s to the early 90s.. Thanksgivings were interesting, in an awesome way…the ‘Grown-up Table’ so to speak was TV tables in the living room, where everyone ate T-giving dinner while watching football. The ‘Kid’s Table’ was in the kitchen. There was (And may still be) a half-height partition behind the stove and cabinets in the kitchen, and there was a huge old over-stuffed chair tucked back in the corner…I claimed that chair early on T-giving, readigng i it surrounded bu the aromas of home-cooked Thanksgiving.

    When the school was still there, where Raymond Parker Park is now, the playground backed up to her yard…there was a path between her yard and the playground. It was not unknown, when I was in elementary school, for me to appear in her kitchen and cadge some home-made goodies of one kind or the other.

    I believe much of the gingerbread trim was still there in the 1960s, much of it was removed when the house was painted sometime around the early to mid 70s. Removed because it was so difficult to maintain and keep painted.

    Hope you enjoy the house…treat it well. Some awesome times were had there!
