    What a disconnect from the outside to the inside.

    Is it just me, or does it look like there is some sort of door above the window in the lime green room? Anyone know what that might be? I can’t tell because I’m looking at this on my phone ?.

    That porch is so extraordinary that I would buy this house just for that! One positive is that all of the holes in the walls have been patched!

    Greencastle is a pretty area – I have family there. I was a bit disappointed about the inside given how good the exterior looks. It looks like someone with some modern tendencies redid the bathroom and kitchen. I’d gut them and start over.

    I was just thinking, I hope they didn’t pay for those “updates” I would put them all in the dumpster! Maybe I’d put the kitchen cabinets in the garage, but if they are particle board,, they won’t be moved in one piece. Outstanding home, just needs some old fashioned loving!

    I love the look of this house both outside & inside. To me it doesn’t look like it needs that much work. Wish I could talk hubby into it.

    Fabulous porch! Nice lot! Interior has many attractive features. A thoughtful and period correct restoration of the kitchen and bathrooms, lighting fixtures and aesthetically sensitive decorating could make a beautiful home!

    I fell in love with the exterior… and that would inspire me to refurbish the interior along the same design of the era this home was constructed. Nothing seams to be too much to achieve in the ability to bring this home back to its original beauty and glory… except my age. It is tagged in my notations as a possibility. However I presume and hope if the one that buys this home will have the sense to restore it to the period of its original design. This home has many positive possibilities and will not be on the market for long. Overall its original beauty lays close to the surface and just needs the right individual with the correct insight to see how beautiful this home could be.

    What a great price! The outside is beautiful and the inside can become a decorators dream. I love nothing more then to make a home my own on the inside.

    I’m trying to figure out what is under the sink in the bathroom. Is it just wood covering the pipes or some odd shaped cabinet?
    I agree, the outside is wonderful and the price is too. Seems the inside mostly needs cosmetic work and TLC.
