    Absolutely fascinating! If there were a “Quirky” category on OHD, this could lead the list.

    Take out the dropped acoustic tile ceiling, do a little freshening, and open up the only “Phrenology Parlor” (heads measured by appointment) in town!

    This one certainly appeals to the eccentric in me!

    p.s.- Note the drawing of the house includes a second storey balustrade.

    And speaking of octagons, this one has always dazzled me.

    Make sure you click on each image, twice. They enlarge HUGE. Mouth-watering.

    Gut job; but very cool…

    Price is “optimistic’ given its location and current condition. This ‘should’ be, in my opinion , one that Indiana Landmarks ought to try to buy, stabilize, and then resell through their program.

    There are unique issues with these homes and they are certainly rare. Really needs a serious restore and its going to be so overpriced that you’d never get you money back.

    Just emptying all that ‘stuff” out would do wonders for it.

    Thanks for the link Ross. Those enlarged pictures are FANTASTIC!!! Can we require everyone to take pictures like that?! 😉

    I think that this house is interesting and has some potential. Certainly, cleaning out the clutter and getting photos on a prettier day would help. I would love to see the inside and the floor plan.

    The photo in the article is quite a bit more attractive.

    I keep going back and looking at this one….not sure why because it has very few of my “must haves”. I do like the barn, and what is the other building, a rental? No mention made of it.

    The other building was a TV repair shop in the 50’s and 60’s it was finished too. I know cause this was my Mother in Laws house since the early 60’s. My husband and I almost bought it in the 90’s to turn into a Bed & Breakfast.

    I just bought this house last year and indeed there is a lot of work that needs to be done but it’s going to be a labor of love
