    Can’t you just hear the roosters crowing and smell the bacon frying? Just like stepping back in time, this place. It seems it’s just the house being offered, but it is so homey. Charming.

    Not my favorite style, but the green tile bathroom is great.

    The right hand side of the house is probably the original part and could very well date to the 1870’s. Everything to the left of the front door looks like it was added around 1900-1910.

    could really be a great house for someone wanting a country setting. too bad the big old barn is gone. the real estate agent is pretty upfront about the work it needs which I suppose is a good thing.

    Smell the bacon frying, I like that. Appealing, welcoming house with plenty of potential, but expensive stuff needed. If you could, it would make a super place to live.

    Door county is my very favorite spot on this planet. I spent every summer of my life there until I got married and moved to CA in the 90’s. Even so I take my kids there every couple of summers to the family cottage on the lake. A farm house in Door County is my ultimate dream home. Of all the properties ever on OHD, this is the one I would most like to actually own. By the way, unusual for a realtor to talk about the potential costs in such a way in a listing, but I like the honesty.

      I agree with you, Bethany, that the realtor’s frankness/honesty was a quite refreshing change from the norm! It would be nice to see more such honest descriptions and assessments from realtors.

    As Steve notes, the current configuration may be a smaller 1870’s farmhouse that was enlarged and remodeled around 1900. From the scale of some of the outbuildings, this must have been quite a farming enterprise in its heyday. Down to an easily manageable 2.5 acres now.

    Anders (Andrew) Logerquist (1859-1949) purchased this home and a 300+ acre farm in 1889 and apparently made improvements soon after. He and his wife Augusta Lovedahl were both born in Sweden and immigrated with their families in the 1880’s. They were parents of 10 children.
    A large barn near the house was “reclaimed” 2 years ago, aka demolished and stripped. Another structure mentioned in the description was recently repaired and repainted but isn’t included in the sale.

    This is located in a gorgeous part of the world.( I was up there last week). I wonder if the land was purchased for agriculture and then the house /lot being sold off. The area has a lot of agriculture esp cherries, grapes for wine , apples . The big development areas are along the shores of Lake Michigan, I think this would probably stay rural. But yeah too bad about the barn

    Thankfully, it will remain farmland and agricultural, as the organic farmer next door bought the barn and the land.
