  1. No description found yet but it’s a brand new listing so it may pop up soon.

    I’m not an expert on kitchen designs, would this have been a 1950’s update? It’s freaking fantastic, light fixtures too! The living and dining rooms put me in a mood for a party, moving room to room, drinking cocktails. 😀

    • Kelly, I, too, thought the kitchen was circa-1950 but it seems unlikely that somebody would entirely replace a 12-year-old kitchen. So, might the kitchen be original? I love it and would only gently restore it.

      Love, also, the subtle 1930s touches like the front porch railing and the horizontal muntins on the exterior doors.

      Wonderful house just needing a bit of freshening up. And cocktails!

      • I just noticed the scalloped range hood, how cute!

        Maybe the owners in the 1950’s thought their 1930’s kitchen was “so 1930’s” and wanted an “updated and modern” one? I could see it happening.

    • Heavens! Gotta take my hat off to the family restoring the Minturn House. That’s dedication.

  2. This house feels so original. Some paint, spit and polish and it would be a gem. And, yes, a dry martini, stirred, definitely not shaken…

  3. So want to peek under the carpet and see what the floors look like!
    Adore the bathrooms – those sconces made me grin. Wish the windows were original and trim unpainted. Still might drive down and take a peek. 🙂

    My totally unsupported theory is that the nook and fireplace to the side of the kitchen were an addition and the kitchen got redone at that point.

  4. I agree with those questioning the date–it seems unusual to have the two “wings” in a 30s design. I’d guess late 40s/early 50s? Whenever it was built it is a lovely home–the proportions of the rooms are wonderful (and I’m lusting after that dining room set!). This could be a real jewel with a caring owner.

  5. i love this house. As Ross pointed out, the railing and finishes seem very 30s, and the kitchen is a bit of a surprise. It’s definitely from the 1950s – even the lighting fits in with that whole Daniel Boone schtick that people loved back then. Think of Lucy’s house she moved to in CT during the last years of the “I Love Lucy” show. All the windows in kitchen area are metal casements, which were bigger in the 30s than in the 50s, so I’m not sure it was expanded in the 50s.

    This would be a perfect place to kick back and enjoy the quiet life. Hamlet is a nice little town – my dad practiced medicine there back in the 90s. We lived a few towns over just across the state line in SC. You all might remember that other Hamlet house posted some time ago on OHD. The big Greek revival on Minturn. https://minturnhouse.com/tag/hamlet-nc/

    • err….by “bigger”, I mean metal casements were more popular in the 1930s, not physically larger. 🙂

  6. Love, love, love this house. The bathrooms, the layout, the traditional design with slight art deco/streamline moderne touches! And that fabulous 1950’s kitchen with its original turkey red formica! This house was probably built with a service kitchen for a cook and maid. But by the 1950’s middle class surge, wives were making do without a cook. That’s my suggestion for the kitchen reno motivation.

  7. Well, I have a new favorite. I love this house! It’s very pretty in general, but I am gobsmacked by the living room with the cartouche over the mantel, and oh, those French doors! It’s sophisticated and refined, but looks totally livable. So many 1930s-40s homes make me think of old movie sets with that “swank life” vibe, in that regard.

    • Looks like it even more in the street view! So many things on this house I love, especially the size of the kitchen.

  8. Does anyone live nearby? This town seems to have a few homes that might be worth the trip down, but with seasonal travel prices, I’d prefer to have a local swing by before investing the time/$ coming down from eastern MA. 😛

  9. This house is lovely–the word “gracious” comes to mind. That rose carpet is running rampant! I’d guess the kitchen is circa 1955-60 (is that metal edging on the formica?) but I’m not as enamored with it as the rest of you. Great house, though.

  10. Yes, I am a fan of the kitchen. Some “spit and polish” and it would be lovely and fit in with the house. I would want the bedroom with the wood on the walls and bookcase. Lots of nice things in this house.
