At first glance, you might think this house is not very appealing, but don't let the exterior appearance fool you. This place has so much to offer. The rooms area large and the ceilings are high. The kitchen has newer oak cabinets, and a pantry area with original bead board cabinets. There are 3 sets of pocket doors with very pretty hardware. The front stair case has a unique banister with beautiful detailing. (yes there are 2 staircases to the 2nd level) The dinning room and living room have carpet, but there are narrow hardwood floors underneath. There is also a den on the main level with a big closet that could be used for a bedroom. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms, with big closets and a forth room that could be used for an office or play room. All the rooms in this house have big windows that allow lots of natural light in. The basement has newer block walls. There is also a metal shed that could be used for a garage or a machine shed. Make arrangements to see it today!

    This homes design looks really familiar, perhaps it’s a planbook or catalog design?

    Too bad there are no pics of the pocket doors with hardware, kitchen, bath or basement mentioned in the listing. Inside is nicer than the outside would suggest. Guess I need to google Essex and see what other towns/cities are nearby. Aerial view shows farmland all around.

    Sweet little house. It always cracks me up when people trying to sell their homes leave heaps of garbage on the property to be included in the listing photos. Maybe it was a foreclosure or estate sale though.

    I can see how wonderful this house would look after the renovations. Nice opportunity.

    I love this house! I wish I could move to Iowa ~ they have some of the prettiest houses. I love that the base moulding goes around the register on the wall! This is only the second time I’ve seen that and I think it is really cool! The exterior is beautiful, just needs to be painted with some beautiful historically accurate colors!
