    Wow wow wow!!! What an amazing home! Who doesn’t dream of living in an adorable English cottage straight out of a Disney movie when they were a little kid? And that price is such a steal! What’s there to do in AR? I might have to move down there.

    Also, whats up with that tunnel? Looks kind of creepy but I’d probably explore the heck out of that! Does anyone know of the history of this place? I bet it’s super interesting! You’ve got to be an interesting person, I’d say, to live in such a house.

      The description states the tunnel connects to the carriage house.

        But the “carriage house” is being sold separately?
        I’m guessing something will have to be done to close off the tunnel if someone else buys it?

    What is the physical state of both properties? Basically sound? No termites, rotten foundation, etc.? What about the area the house is located in? Safety? Socioeconomics?

      The agent can answer some of those questions. A house inspector the rest.

    $55K for THIS?

    $30K for the carriage house?

    And a tunnel is included connecting both?

    ZOUNDS!

    The house is fabulous. A day with a crowbar will remove all that absurd blond paneling.

      Maybe there’s small print: Tunnel sold separately.

        LOL! Very funny! I’m wondering if the upstairs FP might have once looked more like the basement one…

    I really don’t understand why they aren’t being sold together. Looks like there’s a mold/water problem, but hopefully not serious.

    I didn’t a street view and discovered that another, equally charming and run down Tudor is next door; they must have shared the garage structure. Same architect and building materials. Each would have had a single garage. I would love to get ahold of all three and create a compound! LOL.

    What a lovely building – am I alone in wanting to find the person who butchered the panelled room to create that curiously pine-panelled cupboard and discuss how best to cut into panels of that quality without ruining the effect?

    sure makes me wonder bout the history of original owner, with a tunnel? bootlegger? lol or worse, sorry but that tunnel is creepin me out

    Seems to me if the Tunnel flooded in the past, it could flood again. IMHO, this would be a very expensive project & why buy the house without the Carriage House Garage & mention of another Tudor next door needing work…I agree, great for an Investor to buy all of it and make a Compound out of it. Spell Big Bucks!

      These houses on the lot are brilliant and very very unique
      Right now, I am told you CAN get all 3 units right now. 2 houses at front on Poplar Street and long building at rear property which has 2 garage bays accessed from the street one block behind Poplar by the town’s “dead man’s curb” forcing slow traffic

      It’s the bigger, main house and the long, open-form, duplex type rear building that is listed here but the smaller front of property home on the west is also now vacant. Each home’s basements are multi roomed with tunnels to connect each house and then to the long, rear building. The basements were also living areas as there is kitchenette & shower, etc. Stained glass, inlay basement windows.
      I live across the street.
      You may email me if you want some neighborly, unbiased information of the lot. It’s AMAZING. The paintings on the walls are original from the builder’s…2 brothers from Germany. These men had $$$ for the time. It’s details are painstakingly beautuful if you appreciate historical architecture.
      The pics shown are from before its last owner, I’d say, as it’s had more repairs.
      There is a tree, beech tree I believe, in center of property that had to be planted upon building or even older as it is about 3.5 feet wide at its tall trunk.

      There’s too much to write in this box… so much can be described that’s not in listings. I’ve always loved the place. Love to see someone move in to keep it in near-original form. (the bathrooms have been improved amongst other things since the pics shown here)
      It is solid built homes.
      I don’t mind if you’d like more details just to help put this home (compound-lol) into loving hands.

      I used to live in that house back in the late 80s. It is a great house, and the tunnels not only ran underground to the garages on the next block,they also used to connect the two houses, but that part of the tunnels collapsed even before I lived there. If i could manage it i would move heaven and earth to own what was my dream house.

    The carriage house (I think!) was listed on Circa in late August, and shows as off-the-market. I am trying to get more information on both homes.

      I checked the house and it’s on the agents site. Circa is not a site like Realtor, Zillow, etc. They are like AntiqueProperties.com or OldHouses.com where you have to pay to have your home listed there (at least that is my understanding.)

    I had no idea I wanted a house with a tunnel. It turns out I want a house with a tunnel.

    Another on the favorites list! I want all 3. What a fun place to restore! It could be a family compound!

    Way back in 2010 people were saying this place needed a ton of work. I cannot imagine what is needed now. Perhaps that is why it been on the market for so long? Makes me so sad. The longer it sits the worse things get. One cannot deny that all structures are right out of a fairy tale and are just amazing. Perhaps the cost of restoring it all is too daunting? I also cannot imagine not buying the carriage house with the home. It just belongs with the house (as well as being in the backyard). I hope someone with vision and deep pockets buys this and restores it. It’s magazine worthy.

    If you wander around streetview a little, you will see that the carriage house has its own street address of 629 W Highland. It is apparently a duplex – two mailboxes, yet there are 4 electric meters, 2 of them probably feeding the houses. It appears that the lot line goes right through the middle of the carriage house(s).

    So they are going to subdivide each lot to remove the carriage house portion?

    At a minimum, you’d have to run a new electrical service to each house.

    Sounds messy …
