    Kool house with great woodwork. The yard needs it’s spring clean up. The big floral wallpaper with beautiful blue/green leaves is wonderful, love it. The map wallpaper in the laundry/bathroom would cause someone sitting to contemplate so many better places to be at the moment.

    The more I look at the kitchen I realize what a design mess it is. I could live with repainting cabinets and replacing hardware but the stove should not be by the sink. That’s where the dishwasher goes! The kitchen looks plenty large enough to handle an island. Looks like the potential is there for a decent kitchen.
    I’d also strip the rest of the wallpaper in the room with the floral accent wall then paint the walls a color to draw more attention to the papered accent wall.

      While I would always prefer period kitchens and baths, we all know it’s pretty rare, and this kitchen has really cool cabinetry and hardware; I wouldn’t change that part of it at all. It looks like it just needs a good cleaning. If a house can’t be totally original, and so few are, then later layers of updating add character and tell the house’s story. This 60’s era cabinetry is part of this house’s story. I wish my parents had left their 1900’s home’s 50’s kitchen intact, because that was part of the house’s story, but the changes they made are part of it’s story too.

      But the dishwasher IS next to the sink…It’s just vintage! It hooks up to the sink and the wood top lifts up to load it. I used one of those for years. It was cumbersome, but got the job done!

    I do like the map-papered bathroom. That’s a witty touch.

    And is that avocado-gold and brown flooring linoleum? I’d keep that too.

    That map bathroom-laundry is on the second floor. Interesting wonder if they took out the tub.
    I was wondering in the dining room, the picture showing 3 windows. What room is showing through the one window?
    Some chainsaw, scrubbing, and TLC, and what a beauty she would be.

    Staircase is amazing- looks great! They’d better do some yard work and keep up around there or nature will take over. The kitchen is at a weird angle for sure. Looks like they need more shelves in the green room ;)! Needs some love!

    A house that needs to be a home. Love the entrance with staircase and stained glass windows! I hope this home and it’s gardens get the love it deserves.

    Did you guys see the lamp in the middle of the fret work – photo #12? OH MY, I think I’ve gone to OLD HOUSE HEAVEN!

    Some TLC and this could be a beautiful home.

    Fretwork is amazing, glad the owners did not paint it and the entire home. Love the cabinets in the kitchen, but the layout is a bit odd. Still its a great home.

    Someone cared enough about the yard once to plant bulbs. This is just a beautiful home.
