This home is now a "blank slate" and is ready to be finished your way! Large rooms, high ceilings, beautiful arches, etc., etc., etc. Located in Salem's wonderful historic district on an acre and a half. Unique opportunity for an unique buyer.

    An old map shows this as the home of Jacob A. Ambler (1829-1906), attorney and U.S. Congressman. I’d love to see the interior.

      Hello, I live in Salem, I checked out this home a few years ago through the windows…and it is completely gutted, the inside has nothing in it….lots of work ahead. The back part also very very old.

    The stone glows – nice! (Reminds me a bit of buildings in the Cotswolds in that respect.) But… No interior pics?!?

    This house is at the tail end of Salem’s “Millionaire’s Row” – South Lincoln Avenue. It’s one of the oldest houses on the street, and sits on a larger lot, and further back from the road, than most of the other houses. I’d love to see the interior.

    This Gothic Revival style house seems naked without proper porches and bargeboards. I’d love to see inside.

    I suspect that the Realtor’s “blank slate” is a euphemism for gutted to the studs. That might be why a house on Millionaire’s Row is at this price point. You can see that there was a front porch with an upper railed porch over it from the marks on the exterior. I hope I’m wrong.

    Milwaukee cream brick?

    Could be so nice with proper restoration. Nice setting. Monica says completely gutted, so that is what must be inside. I , too, like the outside stone.

    Despite the gutting that has occurred, I think there’s plenty to work with. I particularly like the way the bay window interior is finished!

    I love that bay window with the arch in front of it. That’s always a nice touch!

    Gutted but on a wealthy street, that makes the price of this house awesome. If it’s brought down to the studs, so be it, it will still be worth saving. The street view alone is envious. I think this would be a beauty worth the money put into it. My opinion only.

    Beautiful architecture on this one. Soooo much potential. Hope its finished so it will last the next 100 years.

    Lots of work here. Stairway looks so tired. Little exterior building is nice. I hope someone will like “millionaires row house and fix it up.

    I just purchased this property.. My engineer gave me his stamp of approval, my architect will guide me to keep the integrity of what once was an incredible home. It will be restored and amazing! Wish me luck 🙂
