    Thanks Teri for sharing!

      You’re welcome! Thanks for including it! I also have wised up and added an initial to my username here as it seems we have quite a few of us spelled “Teri”!

    Sorry, but it looks like another realtor was in too big of a hurry to give this beckoning place the proper photos (and respect) it deserves. Why no pictures of that gigantic barn. Look at the door and window trim inside. It’s wonderful. So much more here to work with, too; this gem is just waiting for a little polish. A tad close to the road, but all the better to view those handsome neighbors just across the road. Oh, an I’d bet ya that the view from the back yard is as pastoral as can be. And 25 acres, to boot!

    If only Ohio was considered tax friendly for retirees and my insurances were there! Darn. So many nice houses in locations I can’t consider.
    Of course, there is still the issue of a second back stairway where I can discretely put the stairlift or a good place to add a new elevator. 🙂
    The 16th picture down with the green walls and pink fireplace – what was/is that between the window and fireplace? It has original trim inside, but it appears too shallow to be a closet, and the trim design at the top does not seem related to a door. What am I not recognizing?

      Maybe an original entry door into the bedroom?

      I think Eileen has the right idea about the doorway. Our house, like many in the period, did not originally have closets, and bedrooms were often joined by doors, even thought there was a hallway. In our case, closets were created for adjoining bedrooms by putting up a second wall in the larger room, with a door at the opposite end of the original door. What we have now is basically a 2′ wide little hallway with a door on each opposite wall. When our boys were growing up, they used this little “escape route” whenever a mad mama cornered them in their room 🙂 !

        A wonderful idea. And I love the escape route.
        When I lived with grandparents in their 1850 farm house, there was only one closet in the house, in my grandfather’s room, and it was huge!! And completely his.
        I admit I always am looking to see where a closet can be created when looking at older homes.

      While I’m not yet at the point of needing a chair lift, most likely I will someday. I never would have thought of using the back stairwell for this but Diane that’s a great idea. Or an elevator if it would work in the space. Thanks for sharing that idea.

    Nice classic Italianate farmhouse with intact original details. I like the two-tone (polychrome) staining on the staircase balusters. Such staining was common for furniture in the late 1860’s to mid 1870’s so this farmhouse likely dates from around that period. The photos could be better but enough visual information is presented to at least have an idea about the interior and exterior. A period appropriate paint job and removing modern alterations would bring this house back to the Victorian era. 25 acres provide for many uses and opportunities. Nice property overall. The low resolution streetview is old and does the house no favors.

    Love the unpainted original wood and the staircase is lovely.

    Love this place. Love this site. My only wish is that it had a “like” or thumbs up icon to hit, as I am so often in agreement with the comments.

    A pretty fixer upper! I just love the windows in this house.

    Even with all that needs to be done to the house, this is a great buy in my opinion!
    I see potential, potential, potential! I wish the realtor would have taken more pictures. We didn’t get to see the upstairs at all. I want to see the barn!

    I figure if hubby and I strip away the old paint on the woodwork and floors, that in itself would be a huge improvement. I may have to take a short drive and go see this place. 🙂

    SWEET set of FPs with cast-iron inserts, would be great fun to clean them up and put them in working order…

    Hoping the house is still available, we would be interested in taking a look.
