    Major points for the exterior.

    Another home that the build date given is questionable by around 50 or so years.

      Indeed. First thing I thought. Unless this house has been extremely modified throughout it’s life, I’d venture to say it was built 1870’s.

    You can buy an old house in Lockport for very little, a half hour to Buffalo. It’s not a horrible place to live and there’s restoration happening on a small scale. Here’s another Second Empire a few blocks from this house that a guy bought for $16k and fixed up:

    Jim, thanks for that link as well, it’s proof positive that you can make an old house beautiful again! What I like about these houses is their size. Affordable to heat and cool … I love the big old houses too but realistically they are expensive to run. This house here is cute!

    Picture 4 of the ceiling medallion, brought me to a story. Back in 1980 when I went to Italy on our honeymoon, my then husband bought one for our ceiling back in Canada, but the funny thing is we never put it up. We were so careful with that thing on the plane. Recently he passed away, and I went to help our kids clean out his house (we’ve been divorced for over 20 years) anyway, lo’n’behold we found it still in tact. I think they finally put it up in his house for the estate sell.

    I agree most homes can be saved. I looked at the link you had wow that home is beautiful I love the purple as I adore Victorian homes, I live in my own. So much effort & work go into homes & it is well worth it. Thank you for sharing with us.

    A cast iron roof cresting would be the icing on the cake

    Dollhouse of a home here. Thanks Jim for sharing a “before and after” restoration example nearby. Fortunately for the next owner this one is in far better shape although taking it more towards the original period might be worthwhile. Some entries did have tilework (usually marble) so changing over to the older type of tiles might work better here then the contemporary flooring.

    Great outside…not much for the inside drop ceilings or track lighting. Easy fix.

    I live in Lockport, and love this house, and in the house in the link in the above reply. the featured house, I drive by all the time, ans always wondered what it looked like inside. Thanks for showing me! As to the link, I believe this is on Spaulding St, and the restorer is right, it is a blighted area. Too many slumlords in Lockport, but also, lots of renovation going on. The city is going after zombie landlords now, hope they will get after the slumlords who have tenants. No one desrves to live in some of those houses. Lockport is a nice small city, with good schools, a good lay out, parks all over, a new ice rink, great library,arts programs, etc. Not far at all from Buffalo or Toronto.
