    The house appears to have had a lot of money poured into in the 1950s. The garage, kitchen, and the fireplace. Bathrooms, as well?

    Kinda cool. I would retain these elements.

    I like the rest of the house, too!

    Wow! At that price you could put $100K in it and it would still be cheap. Plus it’s near rivers. Probably real cold in the winter — I’d have to stock up on flannel jammies I guess…

    Lovely house! The 6th picture down of the curved railing on the stairs sold me.

    A nice house, at a good price. I like the mix of 1890s and 1960s; with some polish, this house would be a great forever home. I like the mint green siding, we are planning to go with mint green on our Victorian this fall, but I would lose the dark red gables, too much red for me. The neighborhood looks nice, many comparable homes in good condition. The inside appears to only need paint/paper for me, but what concerns me is the HVAC. The realtor’s listing states that there is no AC, and from all of the interior pictures, I can’t see any registers or radiators…hopefully the wood-stove in the parlor and the fireplace in the kitchen are not the only things keeping this house warm in winter…

      In the picture of the stove, it shows a grate in the floor of that room and another in the entry room. Not sure what floor furnace means but it “appears” to have had some kind of gravity or forced air heat at one time. If all it has now is the stove and an electric log in the newer fireplace surround, then yes – you would be cold. I’m guessing this home needs several updates.

        I have heated exclusively with wood (an antique 18″ Florence Hot Blast) for the past 8 years and I’d be willing to bet that I am much warmer in the winter than most who use a conventional furnace. And I have no monthly heating bill! One decent antique wood-burning stove (not some cheap new thing or that contraption shown in the 11th photo) will easily heat this house. Why pay more for a house with HVAC when you can not only be warmer but save money, too?

        I lived in a house with a floor furnace once for four years and hated it. The heat provided was very unevenly distributed and the perimeter of the house was always freezing in the winter. If you have a good (antique) wood-burning stove, you don’t need a floor furnace.
