    Originally posted in 2013. I included a few of the old photos in this post.

    We were just in Cornelia the weekend before last. It’s a nice town and if my husband didn’t care for the hour drive to work, we’d be taking a look.

    That’s a good price for it too!

    What struck me were the tall ceilings on the main floor. They look to be about 12′ tall. I’m sure this was done to help with trying to keep the house cool in the summers.

    Just beautiful!I would have trouble choosing a bedroom-they are ALL perfect! I can’t believe how inexpensive this is!

    the ceiling height in homes of the vintage is fantastic. I’d have to change that angled wainscoting I see – looks 1970’s to me (unless it’s original but I doubt it). Even though aluminum siding is low maintenance I’m not a fan at all – aside from the way it looks all you’re really doing is encapsulating deteriorating wood so you can’t see it. if water is getting in somewhere you’re just hiding a big problem rather than addressing it.

    Again too too much white paint. What is wrong with leaving the beautiful old wood work
    Alone, I think it is part of these old houses charm. I look at the wood first in any of houses I am seriously considering. Betti

    *non working fireplaces*? Oh no no no. My first priority (after a bath and calling in kitchen remodeler) would be getting those beauties working again. Cut down the heat bill (restore to wood? Or are they all coal?) and bring back natural heat.

      The chimneys have been removed so that would require a lot of work putting them back, go with gas instead. We removed ours too, too many leak potentials in the roof. They were leaking and when put on a new roof we took the chimneys down.

    The fireplaces visible in the photos all appear to have the narrower hearths for coal burning. Even though someone not long ago posted that coal for house heating is still available (I think it depends on the locale) it presents its own challenges with soot and smoke. Many old houses with these kind of coal burning hearths have been converted to gas insert use. To transform these into wood burning versions would require a fair amount of work, maybe including rebuilding the chimney. (alternately relining the flues may be an option) They may also require enlarging the hearth openings which may require additional work and new tile surrounds.

    I was scared when I saw the word foreclosure. I was pleasantly surprised as I scrolled. So many foreclosure homes have been damaged by previous owners and vandals, but it looks good!
