    Oh to go through that attic in the second photo! Such a lovely home.

    Wow! This Lady is a beauty.

    It’s like a movie set. Even the attic and the stuff in it looks like a movie. The only thing it’s missing is a full sized dress form. LOL!

    (Insert standard kitchen disclaimer here…)

    And the game room in the barn is great. Love those ceilings!

    Well, I love the house, obviously, but what captured my special attention was the 1960s kitchen. Yes, it is WILDLY at odds with the house, and deliciously so.

    The kitchen is well laid out, and I love the shiny yellow material covering the walls. Neat.

    However, a new owner will almost certainly tear out the kitchen, even through it is a true period piece. They will not recreate a true 1901 kitchen, but rather will create something which purports to be true to the house but will, as almost always happens, look exactly like the year it was built. How many of us today cringe at “vintage-style” kitchens installed in the 1990s?

    I would gently enhance the current kitchen with period-specific 1960s lighting, a cool 1960s floor, a cool 1960s table/chair set, and other touches. The difference would be amazing.

    I love old houses which reflect the passage of time.

      As a kitchen designer, I’m always surprised to see kitchens in these beautiful homes for sale so out of date. I love and appreciate any time era design (well, not the 90’s pickled oak), but the kitchen is one are that buyers look at when purchasing as it can be a huge investment to the home. There are so many different cabinet companies out there that actually design cabinetry for any era. Though this kitchen is huge, it doesn’t have to be renovated to a gourmet kitchen. Hopefully, whomever purchases this home will mesh the history of the home along with modern appliances and make it beautiful.

    How refreshing to see a vintage kitchen! Please, new owner, don’t destroy its homey charms with a gourmet/granite monstrosity.

    The barn is wonderful too. I spy a midcentury formica dinette — my personal kryptonite!

      The kitchen is most certainly vintage, but not of the period of the rest of the home. Therefore it would have to go. Backwards, of course. I don’t mind 60’s and 70’s clothing, but home decor and design is a completely different thing.

      This house is otherwise gorgeous, and look at that barn! This is where i’d have my art studio. Then i wouldn’t have to constantly worry about getting clay, paint and other art materials all over the living area!

    This house was built by my family. I have gotten the privilege of walking through it in the 2000’s and drawn pictures of it for school projects. It is so cool to see it posted here and know its history is not forgotten. It is a beautiful home.

    My Great Grandparents built this beautiful home! My father roamed these rooms as a small child. I too have been able to tour this home…..I hope whoever buys it will restore her to her original beauty.
