    Yes, it’s in great shape but I wouldn’t exactly call this restored. It still needs some love to make a show piece. Fortunately, it looks like it’s mostly cosmetic. Beautiful home.

      my parents restored homes like this ..your right they didnt restore anything ,but looks to be probably over 14 to 21 layers of paint on all the beautiful wood work ..If it was
      restored it would look clean also

    This is one of my favorite shares from this week. It is such a lovely home!

    I’m new to OHD and probably a bit naive, but this seems like a lot of house for the money and 100% financing. Pity they didn’t spend more time on the kitchen instead of painting the woodwork. Hope it finds a family soon.

    Only half the wood needs to be unpainted, and the kitchen is not too bad; I’d say it’s a keeper!!!!

    I am not a Victorian house person but doggone that is one beautiful house! I want to know more about this styling. Is this a Barber? Is the front facade original or were additions made? I love the pointy little roof and the tower with the arched windows!

    They had me at in-ground pool! I would happily do any work that needs to be done if I knew that I had that huge pool to relax in afterward! I thought that I used a lot of exclamation points, but the real estate agent that wrote the description of this house went a little crazy with them!

    Fireplaces in the bathrooms?!!!!!!!!!!!!! Heaven!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I thought this had been posted recently?

  10. Ed Ferris says: 297 comments

    I think the “fireplace in the bathroom” is really in a bedroom with a waterbed platform. You have to remember to Seventies to pick up on that. Otherwise, the only drawback is that your initials have to be “JDH” to match the frosted french doors. Changing one’s name is not difficult.
    Another psychedelic feature is the oval stained-glass window showing through the stair balustrade. Am I right that they cut away the balustrade panels and duplicated the window surround, originally of course?

      I cannot find this fireplace in a bathroom pic… Am I blind or what? Can you tell me which #?

    • bluegrass gal says: 23 comments

      That’s almost the same frame my daughter has for her “foam” mattress.

      Initials JHD don’t match owners found – hmm.

      Short blurb: Lowery-Chapman house
      Built by John F. Lowrey, this house is a striking example of classic Queen Anne architecture. The house was purchased by Hulett T. Chapman in 1941 and remained in the Chapman family for 40 years.

      There’s a photo of Hullett T. Chapman standing in front with his wife Clara. A John W.F. Lowrey was in the house in 1910 but not in 1900 so the original owner is unclear.

      No, the platform bed room has a fireplace but the bathrooms do too. In the green bathroom the mantle is visible on the left edge of the photo, in the blue bathroom it’s visible on the right edge of the photo.

    A photo of this house (#30) in the NRHP set from the 1990’s(?) shows original columns and ornament on the porch, since lost. (A tough decision for some – restored columns or a pool?) Some wonderful spaces and details inside – the massive foyer/stairhall and all the wainscot knocks me out!

  14. Carol S. says: 10 comments

    Restored??? I see a ton of work needing to be done. especially complete new kitchen, bathrooms, paint everything, refinish woodwork and floors. it would cost you everything you saved on the price.

  15. Devon Hoerner says: 40 comments

    This house has so much potential. Def hasn’t been restored though. I’d love to know if the monogrammed doors are original.

    Probably one of the best houses I have ever seen since being involved with OHD. I can see where some elbow grease will be necessary to bring this beauty back to life. I have no idea whether we would be qualified, but, by the time all the paperwork was done, this one will be gone. I’d be looking at those white fireplaces to see if it’s wood underneath.

  17. LUCINDA HOWARD says: 256 comments

    Don’t guess you would ever get rid of all the white paint, but there is enough unpainted that I could live with it. Plus I love Georgia. I kinda like the shape it it in (minus the white paint). For some reason I love the houses that are not so polished.

    Love this old place. lots of potential here. Very sad to see wonderful wood painted, It needs lots of TLC. Both house and Grounds look neglected. Could be a real showplace,
    With careful restoration, and lots of money. Betti

    Beautiful home!

    Be still my heart!
    May not be restored 100%, but could be lived in while making it to its crowning glory. Now I have to convince my husband we need to move to Georgia!

  21. janet says: 29 comments

    Lovely home with lots of potential. Those door initials look a little modern to me, but it’s hard to tell not seeing them in person. Makes me think it could have housed some sort of business at some point. I love the idea of a pool, but something about pairing one with an old Victorian seems wrong.

      Janet I was thinking the exact same thing about the initialed doors. Possibly came from a business downtown. All in all this is my dream house. I love it! I love houses that are a little tore up, That way I could put my own stamp on it. If only my husband was ready to retire, then this would work for us. Darn! It appears that most of the work is just cosmetic. Roof looks fairly new.

    This is a lovely house, and I agree, not exactly “restored” but it looks like it has some great features to work with. I counted more than the 5 fireplaces the realtor mentions… maybe that means 5 are functional.
    I think the bathrooms are to die for, (is that ship lap in the green one?) and I also love the brick feature in the kitchen… I have the perfect little pot belly stove for that spot. The foyer is lovely, and the windows at the top of the stairs are terrific (even though they want good polish).
    I even like the green lino (or tile) on what looks like a sun porch…what we used to call a “Florida room” when I was a kid. The window visible behind the kitchen counter, next to the brick chimney… is that the sun porch? It looks like that was a later addition, maybe? I am also not a fan of the pool… the house looks like it would provide plenty of work without the added hassle of pool maintenance. I think just painting the outside and refinishing the floors would eat up my entire budget, but a girl can dream 🙂

    The house just needs a little scrubbing and paint. The rest is just patina!

    I love this house..lots of work..but I would love to tackle it!! Living in Missouri I would have to sell my house!!

    Oh so swoon worthy. So much to love about this home including the price!

    It’s a jewel of a house, lucky be the new buyer!

  28. Amanda Starcher Warren says: 3 comments

    So sorry y’all. The seismic activity was just my jaw dropping and my eyebrows shooting up too fast. Yeah. That’s a whole lot of house for that price. Single wides on one acre around here go for that (Asheville, NC). A few minor abominations but there’s still shine to this gem. It’s a good mix of original design and an acceptable to-do list for the right family.
    Those frosted doors… they are really familiar. The logo and design, that is. The fit in the doorway is wrong. Maybe a salvage find? Regardless, they would be gone day one.
    The pink room with all the French doors: is this considered a bedroom in the room count but more like a sleeping porch or sunroom? Couldn’t quite place it in the floor plans.
    Thanks for sharing the old photos. I love seeing families standing proudly in front of their homes, decades ago, then seeing that same home waiting for a new family to breath life into it. Can you imagine getting to grow up in this house? My three kiddos would have a ball, even on the relatively small parcel. Dawson was a nice town last time I went through. This will be a wonderful home soon, even with a few minor abominations.

    It’s beautiful!

    I am wondering about the bones of the house? Plumbing and electrical? Recent? Up to code? I see a lot of mold/mildew on the exterior and surroundings. Roof?

    If this is water damage it would be a lot more than cosmetic work here and I am wondering it surface or something more?

    Occupancy Permit?

    This is a serious inquiry. Thank you.

    I drove down from Kentucky thinking I found my dream house, it needs lots of work inside and out. I met the neighbors they were very friendly, with southern charm.
