    Build date given was 1900 but I believe it is older than that.

    It looks like maybe an 1870’s house that got fancied up in the front about a decade later.

    That is one awesome bank of cabinets!! Shame that the rest of the kitchen wasn’t made to match in the slightest.

      I agree. If I purchased the house, one of the first things to go would be those “big box store” cabinets. This house deserves better.

    Agreed that this is an earlier house, it has some carpenter gothic detail and I’m thinking 1870’s with some later upgrades. Nice entry with the architectural paneled wainscot. Other than the painted baseboards and some trim its pretty stock inside.

    Id personally lose the new kitchen additions and maybe do a big old style store counter island instead.

    Great house that seems well priced (for a change) for what is offered. This would be great with cottage style English gardens and maybe a picket fence.

    Outstanding front porch! Pretty neato little rambler. Nice woodwork in the front hall. Pity the rest was – dare I say it – painted – eeek. Then again, the hall may have been a later addition. Seems like the ground floor ceiling heights have been reduced: decidedly unfortunate if so.

      I don’t think the ceilings were lowered. If you look at the outside, the house really is rather squat. It does appear that a number of ceilings have been spray textured, unfortunately.

    This one has possibilities. I LOVE the exterior, and with a bit of work, the interior could be amazing as well. I love that wall of cabinets in the kitchen. The other cabinets would have to be replaced.

    Does anyone have any idea what the last photo is of? An attic crawlspace?

    • Steve H says: 152 comments

      I think you could live with the kitchen for a while if you just painted the new cabinets to match the old. Otherwise it’s fairly well laid out, although I do wonder where the refrigerator is. I think the last picture is a second floor room. It’s really more of a half story.

    love it!!
    So special to see that two colour wood flooring along with the panels!
    But where oh where is Woodbine IA??

    The earliest houses in Woodbine were built just before 1870 and this lot was vacant until at least 1884. This house was probably moved from the business district to this site and expanded after that date.

    A great $90k house that could be a better $150k house.

    Could that last pic be the second floor laundry room?

    • Sapphy says: 390 comments

      I hope not. 2nd floor laundry rooms are an accident waiting to happen. If the washer should ever overflow, then you’ve got damage on the 2nd floor, 1st floor and sometimes, basement if the water leaks long enough.

        I noticed the description cites a second floor laundry. Like you, I’d rather see a washer and dryer on the first floor, or in the cellar if there is one.
