    The porch and front door surround get major points. This would be the kind of house you could live and back date slowly. The neighborhood is dotted with a few nice homes in between some fixers but it’s typical for rural towns in south Georgia.

    Check out the one across the street, it’s begging for someone to come along and fix it up (well, as of 2008 it was.)

  2. I love the roofline on this one! So interesting and charming. And it’s got just the right amount of quirk!

    I covet those kitchen cupboards!

      Sarah, isn’t that kitchen just die for? TOTALLY adorable! Much as I hate to cook, I think I could actually DO it in THAT kitchen! I might even WANT to do it! I could live in there! Another gorgeous, comfy looking house (except those TVs would have to go–hurts my neck to look at them even in the picture)!

        Yes! Looking at that kitchen just makes me want to bake all day long! And have soups simmering on the stove and roasts cooking in the oven!

    Saw train tracks next to the house; may not be in use but I don’t know if I’d want that possibility in the future. Lovely house though… move-in ready!

    The train tracks lost it for me. I am terrified of trains, could never live there!

    Too bad the original front door is gone. I would like to see more pictures including the staircase. I guess no stained glass and just the one fireplace redone with brick.

    I’m with Chris in that Barber’s published house plan very likely influenced its design. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, as we all know. The symmetrical twin front facing gables are a traditional Southern house form. When a wide porch divides the two gable ends they are often called “Piano Houses” in the South as they resemble the old square grands. I think its plausible the ornamental turret could have been added a few years later but to prove it wasn’t influenced by Geo. Barber’s plan design would be difficult.

    While attending college in south Georgia during the mid-70’s, I was told that the nearby and larger town of Adel was so close to Hell, that you could see Sparks! 🙂

    I’m not sure this would be my dream home, but there’s enough here that entices all the same.

    This house warms my heart. Hi, Grandma!! We’re here!

    How much do you think it would cost to move it? We have some land about 15 miles away.

    Noel,
    First, is the house in a local officially designated historic district? If it is, then moving “contributing” (to the historic character of the district) homes may not be allowed by local ordinance. Assuming no such restrictions exist, the next step is to find a licensed, insured, and bonded structural mover. A good place to start is this member directory of the International Association of Structural Movers which can be sorted by state: http://www.iasm.org/iasm-members/member-directory/ Local realtors may know of a trusted local mover but if possible, get more than one quote because sometimes different movers vary in their estimates by thousands yet are otherwise nearly identical in their methods and equipment. The best will have synchronized hydraulic lift systems where all jacks lift equally and at the same time. As suggested, please shop around because moving a house is an expensive proposition. Perhaps part of the moving costs could be recouped by selling the freshly vacant lot but in this locale I would not expect it to have a very high value. Good luck, if you decide to take this route.
