Wow! you don't find them like this anymore. The woodwork is amazing. From the open staircase to the detailed trim to the wood floors. Very large 2 story home located on a corner lot. this has it all from den to formal dinning to that classic front porch.

    The brick lined street is really cool! I wasn’t expecting the interesting staircase in this one.

    Absolutely gorgeous

  3. Love it the staircase the floors and especially the fireplaces. Anyone on here ever been to Bedford Iowa?

    Seems like a lot of house for very little money. And, it appears to only need cosmetic changes.

    Does anyone know what purpose that room with the corner sink serves? Laundry appears to be in the kitchen.

    Before automatic washers homes would have set tubs on the back porch. Usually two or three tubs used for hand washing clothes. One would be to soak, one to wash using a rippled, metal scrub board and one to rinse out the soap. They probably put in a newer sink when they bought a washing machine and use this for washing hands covered with garden dirt or dogs, maybe flower arranging. Happiest day of my life was buying a washing machine and sending the tubs to the barn!

    Ouf, that carpet does not do the staircase justice! This home gives off cozy vibes. A few tweaks here and there (for my taste) and it would great!

    Also, question: Does anyone have a theory as to why the newel post of the staircase looks that way? It appears truncated or altered….

    Really a good price for this house. Great corner lot. A very friendly porch. I would remove the “car port” and replace the concrete with a narrow strip going up to the cool old garage. Remove the carpeting and work on the floors where needed and remove the paneling in the laundry room(?) where the lone sink is. The kitchen cabinets are great. The woodwork in the front rooms and around the stairs is very good. Bathroom needs some work but it certainly looks functioning, uncover the walls and either redo the plaster, tile or bead board the walls, again just cosmetic. The house has a really good small town, small neighborhood feel, and being that it appears from street view that this house needs the most cosmetic work than any other house in the neighborhood, that is NOT a negative but ALWAYS a good thing for peace of aesthetic mind, return value, and for getting along with the neighbors! Plus it has lightning rods!

    I recognize this house. My Grandmother’s home is on Illinois Street.
