    The build date is a lot earlier, based on the door details I’d say 1880’s.This is a curious house architecturally. First I am not convinced the brackets are original. The size and scale is wrong and you would not see them ‘paired’ the way they are on the left corner. I am betting that there was a front dormer on the front upper roofline that was lopped off. This looked to be similar to some of the barber cottage designs. The porch would have been open not with the beaded board ceiling. The front entry suggests there was room for a staircase to go to the attic as ones family grew. Looked like some termite damage in the bead board wainscot in one of the photos so I’d imagine there is more. The photo of the bathroom looks like the floor is sloping ( maybe it was a porch at one time). I could see this house redone with a staircase and a second floor master bedroom, Better mantels some ceiling medallions, and stenciling and on and on and on but this would be a really cute cottage when properly restored.

    Agree w/ Kelly and Paul W about age of house- ca. 1890. I also agree with Paul W that there are some awkward lines about the roof and porch transitions, BUT I would be willing to believe the brackets are original. I’d call this a “Folk Victorian”, and sometimes the “folk” that built them added gingerbread millwork in a less-than-perfect way. I do find this cottage irresistably charming, and I love it.

    Sweet little house! It would take a lot of work to bring it back, but it would be charming!

    If only I could move it to my woods, it would be loved, cherished, and restored! I hate when it looks like no one loves them anymore 🙁
