    House across the street is incredible! Most of the hard work has been done on this house. New wiring and gutted but charming features not destroyed. Looks move-in-able and you could complete the work as money and time allow.

      I had to go look at the street view after reading your comment–no kidding, what a great house across the street! This little place is a charmer, too, even with the work that still needs to be finished.

    The age seems a little off. Look at the spindles on the staircase and then the newel posts. They don’t match. The walls look too primitive for 1910 IMO. I was thinking the late 1800’s. Then someone Victorianized it. What do you think?

    I agree w/ Julles. I see Greek Revival bones under Victorian gussying up!

    I doubt it’s Greek Revival old. I’ve seen plenty of 1910 homes that were similar in the south, could be early 1900’s if not exact 1910.

    At that price and the wiring done, wow! The house across the street is amazing I agree but that doesn’t take away from the charm of this much smaller house. I would love to see this house finished. I feel sorry for the owner who has to move on without seeing his vision completed.

    I really wish they had included more interior photos. It’s hard to judge from one stairwell photo exactly what work needs to be done to make it livable, and then to finish the restoration. If the house is completely gutted, that does that mean no plumbing, or just no fixtures? (and what happened to the vintage fixtures?) Still, at this price, might be worth a trip up to see it. The town looks quaint, with a focus on preserving their history. I wonder how much it would cost to finish the work… would $100k be about right?

    I agree that part of this house is older than 1910. If you notice in the picture looking at the staircase, there appears a couple of changes in materials mainly the floor and walls. I think the front portion was added probably in 1910. I own several Victorian homes less than 100 miles away and basically live and breath old homes, so I’ve gotten pretty good at spotting clues. From the few pictures I see, I think this was originally a typical south GA four room house with center hall with pyramid style roof and a detached kitchen. This house would have not been two stories originally, so I would bet that staircase is a later addition as well as the dormers. These type of houses starting being built well before the civil war and continued throughout the Victorian era. The windows, trim, etc. would have been reflective of the decade it was built, but the basic footprint remained basically the same. I think the original portion probably dates to around 1890, based on the few clues I see, that I think are original, and age of other homes in the area.

    I feel “gutted” when I see the words gutted and Victorian in the same sentence… 🙁 Poor house.
