      The place in Woonsocket is really great! Why anyone would pay that same money for a ticky tacky McMansion when they could have this SOLID, stylish, quality home is beyond me. The Vitrolite clock is RAD! Thanks’ for the looky..

    • Zoomey says: 498 comments

      I don’t usually like 1950s houses, but the Woonsocket house is a wonderful time capsule. The coral and black bathroom is amazing! The house looks 100% original. I hope whomever buys it appreciates it and doesn’t tear out that kitchen or those fabulous bathrooms! I’d get rid of the carpeting, but that’s it! Thanks for posting this house!

    • Cathy says: 2194 comments

      I’ll take the 1932 brick house. A pantry and breakfast nook, plus other nice features. Granted, I’d need a pool person and someone to keep those hedges beautifully clipped. And would have to redo those kitchen walls. But overall, a pretty house.

    • Laurie W. says: 1771 comments

      The Woonsocket house deserves all the raves — super place. The kitchen is dyno-mite! This house was not standard post-war in terms of size — 6K square feet. We are so used to big houses in this age of McMansions that we don’t think about how MUCH less space the average family lived with then compared to the present. This was a very large house when built.
      The 1st house in Mendon Mass. is wonderful too. I could move right in. Think how much life that place has seen! A gift that so much of its history is still extant, rare indeed.

    Yay I’ve been waiting all week to post this beautiful house! It’s like a Disney princess dream castle on the outside but just wait till you see the inside! I’m so head over heels in love with this home! http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1220-E-Yale-Ave-Salt-Lake-City-UT-84105/12759972_zpid/

    And this here is my second favorite in the line-up. The foyer is incredible. And the built-ins in the dining room are so exquisite. http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1100-N-Humboldt-St-Denver-CO-80218/13330307_zpid/

    This storybook bungalow house is too cute. http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1354-E-Stratford-Ave-Salt-Lake-City-UT-84106/12777444_zpid/

    Beautiful craftsman in SLC. Lots of beauties in this area for some reason. http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/467-S-1200-E-Salt-Lake-City-UT-84102/12754892_zpid/

    This one looks very modern on the outside. I’m not sure if it was recently painted and that’s why it looks like that or what. But they left a lot of original details on the inside. I do have to admit though, I really like what they did to the deck outside. I could picture my friends and I sharing cocktails and hanging out there in the evening. http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1354-E-South-Temple-Salt-Lake-City-UT-84102/12752731_zpid/

      Just took a look at your “storybook Bungalow house” aka The “Sugar House. This 2-story home was built by Claude Richards in 1910 for his family”. Wow, so many wonderful features and 70 photos to peruse. Realtor did a good job featuring this home.

    1872 Italianate–Silver Creek, NY–$97,900. Silver Creek is a laid-back little beach town at the easternmost edge of the Chautauqua County Grape Belt. The community seems to have reached a peak in the years immediately following the Civil War, and it has some rather ambitious Victorian architecture for a town its size:

      You know this isn’t the run of the mill real estate listing when the first interior shot appears to be a picture of the privy! I’m intrigued by the charming heating stove and the room with the three antique headboards (and dresser).

    • ChrisICU says: 625 comments

      Betsy it looks like you and your family lovingly maintained that beautiful house. How nice it is to see that someone really kept the spirit of an old house alive. Well done!

      • John Shiflet says: 5392 comments

        Phenomenal Gothic style woodwork inside. It was rare to see Gothic Revival details from the 1890’s but I have ran across a few isolated examples from that later era. Wonderful house overall; thanks for your stewardship of 55 years. (I wasn’t quite clear if this had been your home or a cherished local landmark) Thanks for sharing.

      • Michael Mackin says: 2043 comments

      Best front door ever in the Montgomery house. And the luscious crepe myrtles in the front are wonderful.

    • Zoomey says: 498 comments

      The Burlington house is stunning. Love the foyer with the intricate floor and beautiful woodwork. The stained glass, stairway, light fixtures, everything is beautiful and original. But I don’t understand the price — is Burlington, VT that expensive? Or is it because it’s been used as a commercial structure? Stunning house in any case.

      • Anne M. says: 708 comments

        Yes, sadly Burlington real estate has become very expensive! But what a great city, I love to visit. Great restaurants, the beautiful lake front, the multitudes of breweries. . .

    • Jenny McCoy says: 148 comments

      The Napa place is definitely intriguing! Do you think the patchwork ceiling is cloth or paper designed to look like cloth? I think the decorator has a wonderful imagination and adventurous spirit. Very cool.

      • YDYD says: 1 comments
        Tigard, OR

        The ceiling is old wallpaper samples. My dad didn’t have any money when he bought the house in 1974 and he covered all of the walls and ceilings from old sample books he got for free. Later he added the wood. The notice on the porch was due to foundation damage sustained during the earthquake in August 2014, a few weeks after he died. Unfortunately, these pictures don’t show most of the stained glass windows that were in the house that added to it’s charm because they were removed prior to the house being listed for sale.

    • Laurie W. says: 1771 comments

      I love the LA house! I’d call it Mediterranean. So 30s & so nice! Love the arched windows in the master bedroom. I can see Lana Turner or Joan Crawford swanning around there, holding a cocktail.

    • Marie says: 227 comments

      That staircase is to die for and the views! I would take my tea and sit all day.

    • Lancaster John says: 715 comments

      Seems like an excellent price for the one in Wellsville. And tiny $1400 in taxes to boot! And only about an hour to the urban pleasures of Pittsburgh PA and its very good airport. This could make someone a great home on a budget. And, may I add, having once built a straight-run stairway, I am in total awe of the carpenters who made that happen. Magnificent!

    • Scott Cunningham says: 390 comments

      I stopped by and checked out the Davenport house when I was last in town. Its a gem…A bit on the high side for the prices in that area, but overall its a great house with a great view, in a cool small city (and the best part is its on the Iowa side vs the Illinois side!!)

    • John Shiflet says: 5392 comments

      Rusty,
      That incredible spiral staircase is one of the finest I’ve ever seen in a Victorian era house! It must have been hand built by a master stair-builder as an “exhibition” piece…it’s THAT good, IMO. I usually don’t get too excited by Italianate style homes but this house is in the one of a kind category. I sincerely hope it gets picked as a featured OHD house in the coming days. I’m completely blown away by that staircase. Thank you very much for sharing!

    • Rach P says: 6 comments

      I was considering becoming an illegal immigrant for the farm in Maine, but now I’m moving to Wellsville instead- don’t tell anyone!
      That house has a wonderful feel and the staircase is gorgeous – I love it all!

    • CharlestonJohn says: 1045 comments

      You just don’t see Italianate staircases like that. It would cost many times the cost of this house to replicate it.

      • John Shiflet says: 5392 comments

        Agreed. The precise curves remind me of the master carpenter/builder hand built staircases of the Federal era. By the time this house was built, most of the millwork pieces were being mass produced but the precision with which this was constructed elevates it to a work of art. If not in the H.A.B.S. survey, it should be in my humble opinion. Wish I knew the story behind its construction and who was responsible for it.

      The Davenport house is also stunning. A grand mansion. You gotta love the seventies vibe of some of the wall paper and that amazing carpeted sunken tub.

    Poor old house. I know it looks pitiful…but look very carefully at the photos. The built-ins, the wonderful kitchen cabinets you can glimpse through the living room, the window seat, wood columns…and that porch. This was a lovely home.
    Less than $10k.

    I fell in love with this 1840 Stone House in Landenberg, PA. I have a dear friend who lives in the area and while looking for a property for her, I stumbled across this. Loved everything until I got to the addition, but the house still has many more good points than that one simple issue.

  13. ChrisICU says: 625 comments

    I don’t remember seeing this one. Despite one very questionable design addition (looks like from the 1990’s), this is a beautiful home. It looks like it’s currently a B&B.

    The lead house pics for this time: Assuming it’s a 4th of July pic? Wonder what the top fabric streamers – attached from the attic window – looked like, in color? Have never seen any bunting/streamers quite like those.

    In one pic the girl is holding her teddy bear, in the other she’s holding a book (or 2 books) – but her bear is sitting nearby. Wonder if he was a Steiff? He has the long arms, & appears to be jointed. Can’t tell if there’s a button in his ear, but then many parents removed the button. The ladies… the kids’ mom & aunt, maybe?

    Sharing a house in Hominy, Oklahoma. The Drummond home was built in 1905. If you ever make it this direction stop in for a tour! Here’s a link to my flickr where you can see several photos of it and on my facebook page there’s a tour through the rooms which are filled with the original furnishings and contents, even the kids toys! All of the wall paper was reproduced to match the original. It’s like a step back in time. Nothing has been updated.

    It’s a pattern home from St Louis Mo architect Herbert Caleb Chivers.

    Check it out! Old house lovers are going to enjoy this one!

    1420 Perpendicular Gothic

    I haven’t been able to find much this week at the lower end of the market, but in the counties of East and West Sussex I’ve found some charming homes at the ‘fantasy’ end of the market:
    http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-59425040.html – An early 1700s Queen Anne in Wadhurst, East Sussex. I’m sold on the entrance hall and arrangement of the staircases in this one, as well as that archetypal Queen Anne exterior.
    http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-41098581.html – Highbridge Mill, dating to 1810 in Cuckfield, is a really cool example of a relatively sympathetic conversion of a flour mill.
    http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-59954495.html – Horleigh Green Farm is a very quirky home dating back to the 16th century in Five Ashes.
    http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-59084564.html – This has to be one of the coolest conversions of a former train station and railway carriages I’ve ever seen. The station itself was built in 1892 in Petworth.
    http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-55501081.html – This 16th century timber home is located on one of England’s most famous cobbled streets; Mermaid Street in Rye.

    • Cathy says: 2194 comments

      That first one, the Queen Anne in Wadhurst… Really elegant & pretty, and light-flooded. And love all of the built-in bookshelves! Is the Chippendale stair rails deal upstairs typical?

      • Cathy says: 2194 comments

        Oh, wait a sec… Upon a closer look, the Chippendale style stair rails continue on down to the front entrance hall. And that is one large hall! Also looks to me that although the front & back staircases come out at different spots downstairs, that they are next to eachother upstairs.

        • FergusFergus says: 260 comments
          1420 Perpendicular Gothic

          The staircases were certainly rather bizarre in that house, not only for how the front and back staircases come up to the same point, but also the design of the stair rails/spindles is rather unusual. At first glance I thought it was something that had been installed in the 1930s, but consulting the heritage listing would suggest that it is much more genuine:

          Up until now I hadn’t even realised that you could even get Chippendale style staircases. But taking my personal taste into account, I shan’t be rushing out to get one any time soon. However, I’d be happy to live with it in this house. Although the two things I would definitely change about that charming home is reinstating the internal walls to divide the living room back into two separate rooms and dropping the ceiling in the study to hide the partially vaulted ceiling currently on show.

            Thanks. I was also wondering if the Chippendale staircase(s) was a later redo. Guess not. I like it well enough, but it would be a royal pain to dust! Agree with you on the living room’s lack of original partitioning and the ceiling in the other room.

      Oh for goodness sake. How could I possibly choose a favorite from this list? I think I shall have them all. Horleigh Green farm as my summer home and special place for my horses. The one on Mermaid Street strictly for Christmas holiday season. The Queen Anne for special occasions and large parties and the railway stations as a business. There, my fantasy line up is complete.

    On my way to Abilene, TX to check out Dyess Air Force base for a job. Looking for old houses along the way. Found this one in Meridian MS for $3000. And was floored. Check it Out! And if any of you can give me advice about Dyess AFB would appreciate it.

    Here is a 22 room Italianate (or 2nd Empire) coming up for auction later this month in Berks County, PA — which is located in the more prosperous south-eastern area of Pennsylvania. I particularly like the radiator in the foyer. Pictures aren’t the greatest…

      LancasterJ, that’s a fine house in Robesonia, built for the ironmaster at the furnace here and part of the NRHP district. Will probably go in $300’s. The recent owner was a big antique collector/dealer and there have been 7 auctions of his stuff since he died.

      • Zoomey says: 498 comments

        Love the house, what I can see of it. But 8500 taxes? Seems crazy in that part of PA. Large, 7K square foot house. How much must it cost to heat with oil heat??!!

        Love it, if only….

      On both ends of the spectrum: the Hilton crash pad has the most inviting kitchen I’ve ever seen. I could definitely see myself cooking up a storm in there, and the adobe house is charming–clean lines, beautiful floors. It needs a better kitchen, but that’s it!

    Going to take me at least a week to get through all these “treasures”! … Re the old house photos from Kelly. On first scan it’s relatively unremarkable but after a more detailed scrutiny it takes on more interest. Did you see the cute little boy leaning against the left porch post? I am betting big sister says, “go away, you are too sloppy to be in a photograph with me!”
    Judging from the fashion is this an early 1900 photo?
    Hopefully someone who knows this home and/or family can spot the photos and comment.

    re: the Buckfield Maine house – I am now 70 and no one has lived in this house at all in the last 50 years. Before that since I was 4, it was only used 3 or 4 times in the summer. It had a beautiful old barn behind it which the owners let fall down and decay. I am amazed at what good condition the interior is in considering no one has lived there in 3/4 of a century. Must be the standing seam roof. Outside of that, it’s biggest defect is it sits about 20 feet off a fairly heavily travelled highway and has not so much as a stick, shrub, tree or bush near it. I guess the price is right but i would think a lot lower.

      Have never seen this variation of an inglenook – the corner alcove next to the fireplace! And think I see rabbit cut-outs at the bases of the bench’s sides. And another fireplace appears to have Delft tiling. Yes, needs waaay more photos to see if the rest of the house has this amount of attention to detail. But for a house that looks to be in rather rough shape, a high price!

    This abandoned beauty was on a FB page I follow – the Dunnington mansion in Farmville, Virginia. From what little information I can find, it is on property owned by The Manor Golf Club. The intention of the developer was to create a resort with this historic home as a centerpiece but apparently the plan never came to fruition and the home continues to deteriorate. If any of you fellow OH dreamers can provide additional information, please do.

      Thanks for sharing this Allan. I’ll never forget hiking the Appalachain Trail and coming up to Burkes Garden. There’s a point on the trail where you’re on the ridge above it and it really appear that you’re looking into an extinct volcano. The house looks very nice but probably a little more restoration is required. But I love that the original house is still as intact without modification like it is.
