  1. Love it! Amazing that no one has ripped out all of the character to achieve “an airy, light-filled, open plan living space”…hopefully the next owner will love it as-is too…

  2. So exciting to read “Original kitchen with unique breakfast nook and kitchenette…” and hope that “… are perfect canvases to really make this property your own!” doesn’t mean rip it out and replace with characterless big box cabinets.

  3. I wonder in some of these really old places where I see electric stoves – if they have the gas hookups still? I know Gas was what was used originally in the era so I would want to change it back – plus I am seriously looking and I do not cook on an electric at all!

    • I’m with you on that vanhenry, cannot abide cooking on an electric range. If the stub ups are still around then it’s an easy fix. If not, it’ll be a bit more $$ but still worth it to have it plumbed. This is a lovely home, and quite charming from the curb. A few things I’d change, but it is sweeeeet nonetheless!

  4. I love seing old Wind-Up fire alarms still “in service” in old homes. I would probably re-purpose the 2nd floor kitchenette here, and introduce a little cable management on my wall mounted displays, but overall this is a nice Hoosier Gem. Thank you for sharing!

  5. No, this would NOT be a great opportunity to make a duplex or rental property, dearest real estate agent! Lol. Find a preservationist who loves old houses! Much better for home AND neighborhood in general.

  6. Did not disappoint, I think Craftsman are my second choice after Victorian. Very nice home in great condition.

  7. Be still my heart! I think this is one of my most favorite styles of home and I just love all the built-ins they have. I was hoping for the original bathroom tile, but if I owned this, restoring the bathroom would probably be the only thing I would do!

  8. Absolutely beautiful lot and house! Love a good Craftsman. Angola is a very charming town, and close to Pokagon State Park with its incredible toboggan run. My father went to university here when it was known as Tr-State. Thanks so much for sharing this one!

  9. Neat interior doors! Anyone know if that is a localized design or is it just a less common style?

  10. I LOVE the entire house!!! If I could only find a reason to move to Indiana! I especially like the kitchens! The tiny 1940s or so added kitchen on the second floor is so neat because it was done so well! Doll house like with really neat cabinets. Even though not original – it is well done with good craftsmanship and correct proportioning. The original kitchen makes me swoon! I too would redo with an antique repro gas stove if I could find one.

    I SO agree with you Mike about “opening up” older houses! I live in one of the original planned suburbs of Baltimore City that was built 1928 through about 1932 (Westgate) and there is a fever of flippers buying up houses that are still very original and in 3 weeks to a month tearing them apart into “open and airy” and then selling them for $200,000 plus. It is SOOOO painful to watch! On my block alone we have had 4 remuddles in the last year and there are multiple houses in this area going up for sale as the owners are getting elderly and moving out. (Many of these homes have only had 2 owners in their history as this is a very stable neighborhood and the second set of owners are aging out.) I”m just SO thankful that my little Tudor style cottage wasn’t opened up and only has remuddled kitchen cabinets to replace!
