    beautiful home, and well kept from what the photos show. But I would scrap off all that paint on the woodwork and return the kitchen back to looking more original and just restore this home to its original beauty. Wonder what the taxes are, they are never posted. And how much to heat the place in winter? just a thought.

      I use to have the taxes shown but conversations were sometimes more about the taxes than the home itself. Taxes are sometimes shown on the agents page or about mid-way down Zillow.

      And are you suggesting I estimate what the heating costs are?

        Hi Kelly,

        I have to think that the comment about the heating cost was simply an observation. There is no way that anyone would consider asking you to try to post heating cost. Even a potential buyer of this home should know that past costs to heat are no indication of future costs. For example, you make keep it on 68 degrees, I may like 75. That would be a HUGE difference in costs.

        Yes, you are right. Often the entirety of all comments were about the taxes. I am guilty of that myself. You are doing a great job. I don’t know how you keep track of all of this but please know that you are appreciated and MANY, MANY old house fanatics love this site and the work you do! Tim

    What a beaut! Break out the soy gel and scraping tools, this one’s a worthy project.

    Well the first year stripping wallpaper and paint, then replace that with some stenciling and period papers. Love the fixtures on this one. Id have to take off that deck and maybe build a more period wrap around porch in back. Price looks right.

    The Pepto Bismol pink radiator is a hoot:) Love the leaded glass window in the room above. Gorgeous.

    Textbook Italianate mansion here with defining stylistic details inside and out. The only later details are in one photo showing the c. 1900 “Colonial” diamond paned sash transoms and a later mantel that was likely finished clear originally. That elliptical “Colonial” window at the staircase landing may also date from this later period but overall the house remains true to the period. I’m guilty regarding tax talk but I will readily concede that such money matters are most relevant to serious buyers more so than old house fans who admire these homes based on their architectural or historical merits rather than costs. Heating-cooling costs are other specific aspects most relevant to serious buyers so discussing them is also probably a moot point for most folks viewing these homes. That said, if you are in the seriously interested category its best to contact and obtain particulars from the listing realtors. I think the previous owner(s) was quite fond of pinks and mauves but paint colors are the easiest things to change in a house.

    This may not be a popular comment…but I almost kinda like that bright pink paint on the trim. It’s just so bizarre…it’s part of the story of the house. I might scrape it off but I appreciate it. Fabulous, fabulous house. Soup to the nuts.

    This one would be fun for old house lovers who aren’t interested in a construction project but like to decorate and selectively restore. I could live here as-is, though de-pinking would begin immediately.

    I think people think out loud here a lot and don;t expect an answer. I often wonder what heating costs might be, or does that fireplace work…etc. If someone wants to guess…fine by me!
