    “A wing of this house has been moved to Park Lane (206-208) and the house itself has been aluminum sided.” How nice!

    Its going to take a lot of time and money to get this back to period. Note to realtor… NOT FRENCH PROVINCIAL, its Second Empire, if you call yourself a “real estate professional” learn your architectural terms!

    The new owners should sell the 1950’s cement block fence off piece by piece to someone with a Mid Century modern to earn some pocket change for the restoration. It would be a shame to waste but needs to go.

    I like this house except, of course, it’s in town! It’s plenty large enough without another wing and there again it’s personal choice on whether you want to go to the expense and time of removing the siding and all the maintenance of wood siding over the years to come. Shutters and trim need to be freshened up. I really like the robin egg blue with the red in the kitchen! Overall, I can see this house in my mind’s eye after a discerning make over. I also like the brick courtyard….always have wanted one my self. I would want to plant ivy so it would cover it and the brick would show throw randomly.

    Love the bathroom tiles, love the shape and space, and I really like the way that they have painted the interior. HOWEVER, what has been done to the exterior is beyond me!

    “it will “NOT” qualify for USDA, VA, or FHA financing.” Is this true with houses this old?

    I wanted to take a look at the wing that was amazingly detached & moved. Google doesn’t go there. What a weird thing to do to a nice house.
