    Build date given was 1910 but I thought it was a bit older than that.

    A faded beauty!

    A bit of a wreck!

    Hey, just my kind of house!

    This place could be a knock-out once again! Love the tall ceilings.

      In Streetview, I was surprised to find a lovely neighborhood.

      And what looks like a new roof.

      For $37K?

    Poor little house. I hope someone loves it back to life.

    Such a potentially pretty place. Once a very pretty place. It looks earlier to me too, Kelly — and Queen Anne? Really? I hope so much that somebody comes along to love it. Marshville is a nice little sort of rural town, great place to live.

    It would have been better not to begin the remodeling and to have left everything original. I agree about 1910 being too late…more likely from around 1895-1905.

    I think this house looks worse than it really is. There’s enough left of the original here in decent condition that basic rehab and refinishing, plus a kitchen and bath, gets you a cute cottage with some impressive spaces for a small home. It’s not livable at present but could be a manageable project for someone with some energy and beginner’s skills.

    Build date is definitely wrong as John Noted. I’m wondering if maybe a tad earlier than 1895 because of the windows and the ‘kick out’ base detail at the bottom of the doors?

    The plan here would be outside, scrape and paint, restore the windows and then go inside. I note the newer larger electrical service box indicating some updates on wiring perhaps. Also the rebuild of the rear porch and the roof.

    Lot of value here and finishing eth outside would maybe raise the value enough to get a equity loan to do the inside. This looks like a good project.

    Oh my goodness, do I want this house. I do wish it were in a little more secluded area, I don’t love living so near the street like that. (I’m such a hermit, lol) But man. I cannot get over this house. What a beauty. Those front doors alone are worth the whole renovation. I am curious about that little numbered sign seen in the entryway picture, up near the doorframe of a door in the hallway there? Wonder what that’s about.

    Beautiful house, with tremendous potential.

    I wonder what the sign with numerals 1-10 are by the front door? looks like it could be lit but for what?

      How cool! Good luck! Will you be doing a blog or Facebook page on the work?

        ABH, Congratulations. I feel that the photos here do not do full justice to this house. It may have never been a mansion but it was certainly a comfortable house in its time and it can be again. Keep a photo log of your work so you can measure the progress. I can’t determine the condition of the roof, but assuming there are no leaks, interior work can begin in earnest. This will be an amazing transformation once it has been restored. I too wish you the best of luck with this project and thank you for preserving our architectural heritage.

      Please post some pictures as you complete the work. We would love to see the progress!

      Fabulous, indeed, Kelly!

      I particularly like the black window sashes!

      Congrats to the owner!!!!!!!!

    Wow, assuming the miracle worker here is ABH, fantastic job! This is obviously someone who has the vision to bring back this faded gem. Hat’s off to an impressive restoration, so far. I assume the interior work is still on-going but if the exterior is any indication, the interior will be just as impressive. We need more folks willing to take on faded houses and save them from oblivion.
