    I still see the beauty in this old gal. Hopefully, someone will give her some love and let her shine again.

    Interesting Stick style detail in the gables rather than the more commonly found bargeboards. Historically accurate contrasting paint on the exterior would add tremendously to the curb appeal. Too bad this one couldn’t escape the white paint slathering on the interior wood as well. Newberry’s best architecture is found at the locally famous Gothic Revival opera house, which now hosts all types of performances…

    A curious second story plan. I count two sort-of-finished bedrooms upstairs (the wall treatment appears to be a kind of hardboard/particle board precursor) and three unfinished bays calling out to be floored and walled. Big place! With an unlimited renovation budget, it would be hard to resist the temptation to bump another dormer out from the rear upstairs bay, ’cause then it would be a house of seven gables! (Yeah, I know it’s on the National Register, but one teeny little dormer?)

    Actually, if you cleaned everything out and gave it a good scrubbing, it isn’t as bad as I thought. Paint, refinished floors – it ain’t too bad! Bonus – it’s just down the road apiece from me!

    as its been said “cars with soul get restored, those without are left to rot”

    the same can be said of certain houses and this:
    “looks like it has a whole lot of living left to do”

    A beauty in the rough. Someone with a nice bank account could turn this home back into a beautiful family home. Would have to get rid of the stove, and open up the fireplace. Lots of work, but it would be worth it I believe.

    The tiled kitchen is to die for! I think the paint needs to be changed, but the tiles are really something. I always wonder when I see these poor old ladies… who is it that goes after their wallpaper? In some homes, you can see that the paper has just started to fall, but so many look like someone started ripping the paper off for fun. Such a shame,because there are some rather pretty vintage papers. Does anyone know about Newberry? Seems to be there are a lot of lovely old homes there.

      No tile in the kitchen. My husband had this linoleum type covering that looks like tile in his 50’s kitchen. Very popular then. Same color too.

    Thanks Linny,

    Now that you’ve told me the secret, I can see that it just looks like tile. Interesting, and probably something I’d keep. I’m just glad it didn’t suffer the same way as the floor in there…guessing that is lino too?
