    Build date given was 1915 but I thought it looked earlier than that.

    VERY cute! Is it my eyes or the camera filter… the chimney looks like its leaning?

      Looks to be the result of the realtor stretching the picture. Wish realtors wouldn’t do that.

      Pretty sure it’s leaning. It’s pretty darn skinny for it’s height, and as an exterior stack it gets no support from the exposed side.

      What I’m seeing here is a house missing it’s porch; or perhaps never having had one. The scale on the three front elevations is just weird. I like verticality in OLD houses but this is a bit much. 🙂 Seems like if it had a nice deep Southern porch horse shoeing the way around it, the mystery would be solved. Judging by the original finishes they may have run out of scratch for the porch and never got around to building it. It could have been ripped off for economy, or even rotted away. Who knows; but as it sits, weird.

    Well that is a succinct realtor description; good thing a picture’s worth a thousand words!

    Do you think the owner likes hats? 😉

    That glass cabinet holding all those teapots is to die for! It looks sort of out of place there for some reason though.

    Hats, teapots, tables and chairs, and no beds. A chalkboard on an easel by the door, and a wheelchair ramp. Methinks it’s a business of some sort. It doesn’t give the impression of actually being lived in. And where is the kitchen?

      It looks like the owner might be part of the “Red Hat Society”. They wear red hats (obviously) and have teas and wear red and purple clothes. That might explain the hats, teapots and table cloths.

    This house is deceptive! Or the pictures are. First I was thinking the rooms would be small but they’re not. And I never expected those ceiling heights, the relatively short doors with the tall ceilings have a very strange but interesting effect! Voluminous is the best word I can think of, reminds me of some weird recurring dreams I have. The house is super cute and I’m loving some of the furnishings too.

    Hello all, this is my first post, but I’ve been an avid reader of this site since I found it a couple months ago. I just love it here, so thank you, Kelly, for all the work you put into it.

    I googled this house and found that it used to be called the Densler house, and it was a tearoom. I’ll try to put a link to the website that describes it. It says it was born, oops, built in 1879. Link: http://www.columbianainn.com/our-properties/the-densler-house/

    I LOVE this house! I wonder where the kitchen should be but I LOVE the colors and the details! I want to move to Alabama!

    I live near Cape May, NJ and more than one of the 19th century homes in the area are actually just the top floor of another home that went under water or was otherwise partly destroyed. This home looks just like one of those.

    When you look at the front it looks like the bay window section was added later? If you look at it with out that could it have been greek revival? Im just curious-

    My first thought is “can a place this small looking from the outside really contain so much space inside?!” Because there appears to be a lot of space in this house! And a space that’s been cared for, too.

    I had guessed a B&B so thanks for giving us an ‘a-ha moment suggesting use as a tearoom. I visited family in CA (I’m on East Coast) recently and visited a similar tearoom and it, too, offered hats for the ladies (guests) to enjoy if they so desired to wear one…..especially fun for pics and groups, thus not necessarily red hat ladies. Cute interesting home! Thanks!???

    Love this house ~ what has to go is the ramp. Maybe they were private people and only wanted a porch on the backside?
    Would it be sacrilegious to add a rocking-chair porch to the front of the house?

    FYI Zillow estimate is only a little bit above 100k!?! That’s just a crime.
