    This house is just beautiful! It appears that everything is original. I love the fact that the windows have not been replaced. The neighborhood doesn’t look bad. At this price, someone could invest in the needed restoration.

    Oh so dreamy. My creative mind flows.

    Love this place. Lots of potential for a creative restoration. Ridgway is an outstanding, restored and reinvented community and the county seat of Elk County, PA Wilds.

    Is that a fireplace that was removed in that one picture? I cant quite tell what that was.

    This is simply lovely. That has to be the most elegant attic I’ve seen in a long time!

    Great house.If I was living there I’d buy and restore it. Doesn’t it remind you of the “A Christmas Story” house?

    Please note: This is the correct order of restore. You do the outside first! You do the roof gutters siding and porch repairs THEN you go inside. Lot of value in that exterior work.

    Looks like its ready for the next phase of restoration and priced well.

    Something about this one makes my heart skip a beat. I would love to see the “after” pics. How lovely.

    It’s not clear what all needs to be done to make the home livable, but the price would barely cover the exterior work already completed, much less a house and lot. Nicely done.

    Tiffaney, it looks like the last 2 photos are the rear stairway mentioned.

    It’s beautiful. The location is pretty tough though. Two hours in either direction to Pittsburgh, Erie and Buffalo, and 90 minutes to State College. Would be great for someone that wants to live there after they restore it.

    The outside is so pretty! And the inside has a ton of potential. And a ton of work that needs to be done to restore this former beauty.

    We stopped in Ridgway on our way to Bradford back in 2009. I was amazed at how intact the downtown around the courthouse was. It was like somehow the 19th century never ended there. Our time was limited and I did take a few photos but did not have time to fully explore the town and its old residential areas. The price of this house is very reasonable provided there are no hidden condition issues. It is a tradition house form with added Italianate style details consistent with the 1860’s. No doubt, there’s some history to go with the house for the next owner to discover. It’s one thing for a house to ooze period charm but in Ridgway the entire community has a 19th century flavor. I hope it stays that way forever.

    I’m enjoying all your comments. I currently own this property. I purchased it in order to save it from demolition. I have restored several other homes in Ridgway and own two more nearby. I had intended on living in this house but business has taken me away from being there full time. It’s a great historic house with much local history. Though unoccupied, the house is sound, heat maintained and ready for new owners to complete. The property is lined with towering silver maples which were planted prior to the construction of the house. I had them professionally pruned this week and are still going strong. Most of the other historic homes in the community date from the 1890’s. Eleven houses within a five block radius have complete ballrooms on their third floors. This home is a generation before. As mentioned above, it is a transitional home from Greek revival to early Italianate and of post and beam construction. It’s manageable size makes it ideal for retiring couples or young families interested in a historic home without breaking the budget with enormous utility bills.

      We have been eyeballing your house Brian, and love the look of it! Unfortunately our timeframe isn’t immediate as we are relocating from Maine this summer! Maybe there will be a chance it will still be on the market in a few months and we can fill it with a new loving family! I’ll keep my fingers crossed!

        That’s very nice to hear. It’s a beautiful house and very handy to downtown. That being said, it’s definitely a “project” that will require the right kind of vision and interest in preservation. That means it will probably still be available when you return. I have much more historic background on the house and family who built it. Glad you found Ridgway. Welcome! It’s a very special place.
