    Love the before and afters Kelly! (shame on them for doing that to the fireplaces) I’m unfamiliar how foreclosures work but this seems like a whole lot of house for the money. PLUS 2 acres… WOW

    With over 3200 sq. feet, how can it only have 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms?

    I love these kinds of posts with the before and after! Amazing job on the restoration.

    I’m a little confused on the story on this one. It was owned by the Alabama Historical Commission in 1987 and restored. Was it then sold to a private party and the reason now in foreclosure? Absolutely beautiful home!

    I would love to see the porch restored to original. It was beautiful.

    It appears that the house was restored privately after a covenant had put in place from the Commission. Can you imagine doing all that work and then losing the house? Heartbreaking.

    Foreclosures make me so sad. Obviously these people loved this house. They’ve done a tremendous amount of work and given this old girl a new lease on life. Thanks to them for being willing to take all that on. Hopefully she’ll find a new owner that cares as much.

    This isn’t a foreclosure, it is a reverse mortgage sale where the owners drew their equity out of the house while they lived in it. Once they pass away or move out, the house is either sold (if there is any equity left in it) or given to the bank to be sold (for instances of no equity).

    I don’t know I am not the listing agent. Check zillow, trulia or realtor.com for the status.
