So much inspiration here! 8 Log in to Reply John Shiflet says: 5363 comments 10/29/2017 at 2:35 pm Palm trees have a limited geographic distribution so that should rule out New England and the Midwest. But beginning in the Carolinas going down to Florida and westward to Texas would be one possible locale. Another would be in California along the coastal areas. I find the paint patterns on the house interesting as they show color placements and contrasts but this is likely from the 1900’s possibly as late as 1910 when paint schemes were becoming simpler. I also noted the gable vent which instead of the flat metal or wood louvers here they appear to be shaped. Scroll sawn patterned gable vents were very common back then as well. The large gable “brace” almost appears out of scale with the rest of the house but thanks to this being a documented period photo, it shows what was acceptable for the period. As for the house itself, I believe it would likely date from between 1885 and 1895. The visible “Chinese Chippendale” balustrades were very popular during this period in millwork catalogs. I too noticed the bemused look on the women’s faces. Until the early 1900’s it was almost a sin to smile when photographs were being taken based on the multitude of 19th and early 20th century photos I’ve observed. Nice period photo overall; thanks for sharing. 1 Log in to Reply DuningTeam says: 2 comments 10/27/2017 at 4:17 pm Old World Elegance and Charm in this beautifully maintained Greek revival cottage!

Not over-the-top fabulous but definitely not a cookie cutter ranch. I like the entry, the floor to ceiling windows, and the octagonal dining room. The beamed den with a travertine-surrounded fireplace is nice, though it appears the travertine is cracked :-(. This house is a very good price for Nashville, which has a hot real estate market. https://www.zillow.com/savedhomes/for_sale/41173587_zpid/1_pnd/57.868131,-65.170899,11.824341,-128.452149_rect/3_zm/1_rs/1_fr/ A 1932 Colonial in Ocala, Fl, which has great curb appeal and seems to be in the midst of some kind of restoration/repair. There are a few unfortunate updates that need to be rolled back (canister lights – ugh!) but could be a great house. Price seems a little optimistic, given the condition. https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1111-SE-8th-St-Ocala-FL-34471/45868220_zpid/?fullpage=true 1 Log in to Reply Ross says: 2458 comments 10/27/2017 at 5:49 pm LOVE the 1959 Hollywood-Regency!

MI 10/30/2017 at 7:10 pm The Blanchard house is 4 houses over from us. Blanchard, Hall, Wagar, VanderHayden, were all very prominent founding members of our town. The houses are incredible, although with all cities there are always some slum lords hanging out somewhere.

There’s a development in Stratford, Connecticut that’s chock full of similar houses of the 1920s that was named ‘Aerodrome Park,’ which suggests the design inspiration.

Instead of focusing on what’s wrong, it may be better to focus on what is right and see if those combined features equal the asking price. Then one can look at the things that need attention before an overall assessment is made. If the house would salvage for more than the asking price its probably an acceptable deal. Fort Scott, which is remote on the eastern fringes of Kansas, has a wealth of old Victorian era and early 20th century houses with more and more of them being restored. If the location is acceptable, then for the hands-on restoration types this might be a worthwhile project. I did not see much inside to tie it to its Italianate origins, though.

This would be ideal for an antique shop (ours is next door and specializes in Period Victorian furniture), an architectural salvage store, art studio/gallery, book store or maybe even a coffee house/tea room. It would not take a lot to get a open for business although it need a period storefront (qualifies for grants).The upstairs is gutted although the trim is still there and the pocket doors. Roof is newer. The basement floor is newer and a lot of structural improvements were made to make it a fitness center. 12 off street parking.
