    Added some archived photos at the end because the current listing photos were hard to understand the layout with.

      Well that is a serious selling point, they should put it in the description! I know it would be the deciding factor for a lot of your readers!

      Any guesses as to why the price is so low? It’s a gorgeous home and appears in perfect condition!

    Ok, given the asking price, I was expecting the inside to be pretty much gutted. It’s beautiful! Is Kansas that depressed a state? Even the neighborhood is nice. I am just not getting it.

    This is truly a beautiful and well done Victorian. The fireplace and library are so very warm and homey. Even the fretwork is tastefully done and not overdone like so many Victorians. The kitchen might not be period but I really like the white cabinets and blue and white tile not to mention the 3 car garage and apt. Rarely do you find such amazing craftsmanship and class in a house that says you’re home. Might strip the floral wallpaper though.lol.

    This house is welcoming! It hits all the right notes with me. I too thought it would be dreadful inside because of the price, what a beautiful surprise instead.

    The newel post here is very similar to the one in Utica MS, but more modest. The dates have to be closer than 1880 and 1899. Where’s Shiflet when you need him?

          Hi Folks,
          Thanks to each of you for the well-wishes. My spouse had surgery (gall bladder) on Jan. 9 and within a week afterwards we both came down with symptoms of the flu. Recovery has been painfully slow and I still haven’t been able to get rid of a lingering cough, hence my absence from these pages.

          Turning now to this house…I see it as from the 1890’s although the interior fretwork might date from a little later around the early 1900’s. The art glass (stained leaded and beveled) windows also seem consistent with an 1890’s date. Someone asked about Kansas and an explanation about its bargain old house prices; the short answer is few people are moving to smaller towns in Kansas (or to smaller towns generally unless they are nearer to larger cities) so that trend puts downward pressure on local housing values. Smaller towns generally from Nebraska going east to Pennsylvania, form an area commonly described as the “Heartland” or Midwest. This wide geographic region is having difficulty in the 21st century attracting new residents because of limited economic opportunities. The old downtown business model of “Mom & Pop” locally owned stores that were the lifeblood of these communities has long been obsolete yet big box retailers will not invest in towns below a certain size. A house like this one in a different region might be priced substantially higher. I really like the expansive wrap around porch which is a hallmark of the Queen Anne style. I see nothing to indicate this house had any Colonial or Classical Revival flavor originally. However, the room with the stone fireplace and big ceiling beams appears to be from a more recent time.

    As usual I like the archived photos better than the new ones. It seems odd to me to see the front of this house sitting flush with the ground. Usually houses like this are raised up a few feet. I see that it must be on a slope, some foundation shows in the picture of the back, but I still it caught my attention.

    The stain glass, the bevel leaded glass, the fretwork, the price, what’s not to love! Nice to see the fretwork has survived, even if it is from a later date as John said.

    Prayers out to you and your wife, John, for a speedy recovery!

    Hello everyone. It is with the greatest pleasure that I can say that our offer for this house has been accepted and that in a few weeks it will be ours. In our desire to restore this house to it’s original condition, is there anyone out there in Peabody that might know the original colors or have any old photos of this house? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
