Beautiful historic Victorian home very spacious high ceilings with beautiful moldings and would work as a business or residential home. An investors dream come true at this price.

This home Is located in the Historical district of Waycross Georgia. Originally built by an attorney for Atlantic Coast Rail in 1910. It sits right across the street from a library and is within walking distance to downtown. It is zoned business and would be perfect as an attorney's office, accountants, tax professional, coffee shop, bookstore, salon any number of professionals. It is also zoned for residential and would be a wonderful spacious Victorian home.

    I know that 99% of buyers will look at this house and run for their life.

    Me? And I suspect all those who frequent this blog?

    Lust. Pure unadulterated lust.

    I love how mostly untouched the house is. No ghastly 1970s renovations. No “updated” kitchen which the owner wants another $30K for, but which I will just rip out, and have to PAY to rip out. No, well, you get the idea.

    Lust. Lust. Lust.

    I agree too. I’ve been looking at lots of old houses online lately and it seems like 99% of them have ’70s kitchens or modern, cheap Home Depot kitchens with can lights. But yes, the owners think buyers should pay extra for the remuddling. Oh, and for the shiny new cheap aluminum windows. Sadness.

    I too join the chorus supporting keeping an old house original within reason. Not the best photos inside, IMO. The staircase should be well lit showing the newel post details. Lots of cosmetic work ahead for the next owners. Some real pleasant surprises await the next owners when they clean off the old darkened shellac and find nicely grained woods (mostly Southern Yellow Pine) under the darkened finish. With some exterior and interior colors, cleaned up and refinished woodwork, as well as attention to period details this house would be transformed into a fine period home. I suspect the house dates a bit before 1910 more like 1895-1905 but approaching it as a late Queen Anne style house (with some Colonial details) would be appropriate. Lots of work for someone but lots of potential as well. Attractively priced and if properly restored it could look like a former attorney’s residence.

    What a dream! The place is amazing. The staircase is perfect and that upstairs hallway, to me, is so character filled. I love hallways that have some size to them and are not just straight. Yes, the right colors, some polish and elbow grease and the place would shine like a new penny. I can only imagine what those floors will look like when refinished. I live in Georgia but of course, like so many great places like this, it’s about 4 1/2 hours away. Who ever gets this one will be very blessed. Here’s praying someone with a true appreciation grabs this one up.

    I, like everyone else, LOVE this house. I just love these old, dusty, ramshackle southern homes. I look at them and see all my favorite old gothic southern novels come to life. I’d clean the house up, then wouldn’t change a thing.

    A diamond in the rough……..love it!

    I purchased a “diamond in the rough” in a historic neighborhood of Ohio. Everybody else had run from it, but I saw the potential and have not regretted it for a moment – even when it was only 40 degrees inside! Years of neglect meant no remuddling, just a clean slate to restore the home to it’s original grandeur. Mine was built c. 1870 , and finding relics belonging to previous owners has encouraged me to research and write about them, the house, and the city that they lived in. So many adventures in my big, beautiful dump!

    I’ll go even further than the brave and good souls who’ve voiced their approval of this house above- I wouldn’t even clean it up- much. I actually *like* old alligatored shellac finishes; they remind me of a cousin’s old Queen Anne Victorian I used to play in as a child.

    No, I’d clean up the dirt and dust, put a few old Victorian antiques in there and wait for everyone who came in to ask if “all this stuff came with the house”!

    Thanks to everyone for all the positive feedback on our old house. We bought this house with high hopes of restoring it. Unfortunately we are not going to be able to finish the job. But we believe the right person will come along who will appreciate it for what it can be again.
