    Huh, wonder what type of updating they’re talking about? Because other than cosmetic(carpet, wallpaper, didn’t see a bathroom pic) I could move in here. Would need a swing on both porches though, seems like a lot of house for your money. Especially for Texas, why?

      I wondered about the updating comment, too. I don’t think this house needs to be updated — it needs to be UN-updated. The only real issues I see (carpet, paneling, etc.) were clearly “updates” at the time they were put in, and simply need to be torn out and restored.

    A. Great stove! Don’t want to update that at all!
    B. Interesting reflection in the mirror in the picture looking down the staircase to the front door. At first I thought it was someone sitting on the toilet!
    C. Can I keep that great dressing table with the big oval mirror?

    The stove caught my eye and I thought “that’s a keeper!”.

    When I was a little girl in Texas, San Angelo was a dreamy vintage town with a massive Public Swimming Pool in a Park like setting. Perfect for HOT summer days. I remember thinking it was just the type of town I would one day like to live in. I believe in 2015, after years of TX drought, parts of San Angelo flooded. Does not appear this house was flooded. Yes, Un-update please. Appears sellers in the stages of an Estate Sale – thus the reason the home is not showing its full potential in many of the rooms.

    Great potential for a B&B with 5 bedrooms and 3 baths already. Needs brightening up to make it fabulous.

    Emmett Kelly!!! Seriously! Gotta love it. (I’m not even going to bother to explain. Too funny.)

    I would buy this house for the stove alone (silly me) … looks great to me, wonder why lots of updating means, electrical, plumbing maybe? Great house.

    Our daughter and her family used to live in San Angelo. The town on the Concho River has a population of about 100,000; a medium size city for Texas. Although visted by Spanish missionaries in the 1600’s it was not until 1867 when a military outpost was established. Late Victorian type houses like this one are not common in San Angelo (nor are they in most Texas cities of this size or larger) so reading “needs a lot of updating” was music to my ears. I think the ’70’s paneling would need to go and there’s probably lots of shiplap plank walls waiting to be discovered underneath. Simple houses of this kind were fairly widespread across Texas from the 1870’s until World WarI with minor changes in details and interiors. I love the double galleried porch but its looks like it needs a little help. I think I’d add some ornamental brackets/corbels to either side of the porch posts and perhaps Queen Anne style colors from the 1890’s to bring the house closer to its Victorian era design origins. I sincerely hope such a rare unspoiled survivor is not subjected to a gut rehab and totally modernization but if a local flipper type gets it that’s exactly what will happen. This one needs a preservation minded buyer. Most of the surrounding homes are at least 50 years newer-this must have been rural originally.

    The reflection in the mirror is no big deal. If you look at another picture there is a bench next to the stairs, a man is sitting on the bench and a child is climbing on his lap. Something appears too be pasted on the mirror (paper) covering where their face would be. No ghosts detected in this house, sorry ghost Hunters!

    Love the staircase, and the antique vanity. This house needs a restoration and renovation.
    I would easily buy this house.

    I am very familiar with this property and it needs extensive work and will take major money just to restore it to it’s original grandeur- approx. (admin edit: Sorry, no estimates.) or more. It needs a new roof, entire plumbing & electrical throughout need to be taken out and redone, treated for termites, balcony is caving in, bathrooms are in bad condition and need new sinks, showers, toilets, floors, etc. There is no central heat or air in the home, just window units. It has not been kept up in over 20 years. Also, picture #9 is not of this house- the realtor must have confused another one of their listings and included pic in error. It will be difficult to get a buyer for this part of town at this price. It was a great house at one time but sadly was neglected over time.
