    Wow, this is a rare instance where I like a Colonial revival from this era. Usually I find them basically Victorians with a schmattering of Colonial trim work. This is the real deal. Love the dentil molding in the entry way and the relatively simple colonial fireplace mantles. The original light fixture in the blue living room (?) would look amazing if cleaned.

    Turns out, this was on the site before. I must have deleted it during the purge, drats.

    Wow. Wow! WOW!

    I am loving’ this faded beauty!

    That foyer!

    Some of those lighting fixtures!

    And I have always wanted a mile-long sleeping porch!

      I like how the sleeping porch has doors so people can have some privacy. That’s a neat convenience.

      For some reason, I can see 20’s era people lounging out there and smoking during a party. Maybe that is because it is so long, it looks more like the deck of a ship.

    Certainly an excellent price for the area.

    What a delightful find with all those yummy details! Oh I hope no one decides to gut the original “charm” for another Destructo the Visigoth interior!

    Oh my goodness what a house. I would take pleasure in restoring this one.

    Oh, I’m just dying to get in there with a vat of paint stripper! There is so much covered hardwood screaming to be revealed… what a stunning house!

    Looks like it is probably bigger than 4000sf to me. I would guess at least 5000sf or more.

    Great woodwork and original windows. I hope the new owner appreciates what a treasure this is.

    This is my hometown. I have lived here all my life and there are many beauties like this on Oak Hill Ave. I wish I could have afforded one when I bought 2 years ago. Unfortunately many have been converted to apts.

    Now THIS is an Old House Dream!

  15. This house is truly stunning – the only thing that’s a deal-breaker for me, that I would absolutely have to change, is the bathroom on the second floor where the triple windows open out on the balcony. And even then, it’s only because (1) I would want those windows in my bedroom or library and (2) I would want to access that balcony any time night or day without worrying about invading someone’s privacy to do so.

    So much left unseen. So much to say. Hopefully the buyer will say hi someday.

    I live everything about this house, especially the bathroom with the balcony! And wasn’t that a back staircase case leading into the kitchen — love it!

    Keep coming back to this grand old lady and still spot something new like those combination gas and electric light fixtures in some upstairs rooms and hall. Blows me away how unchanged this place is although there was no need for change when surrounded by classical splendor. Look up its address on Google and check images at top. Some new realtors pictures when it was furnished and for sale at $375k. Looks smaller furnished !

    Love the aqua green bathroom fixtures and the prism wedding-cake chandelier downstairs. I would, however, reglaze the red pedestal sink to make it white.

    This home could be a stunner.

  20. Dammit! Enough reading of ‘archived’—as if I’m heartbroken enough when homes im stalking sell—the last thing I need is to fall in love with homes sold before I even knew they existed! This mighta been the last push I need over the edge into bitter old womandom—& I’m only 35 Cruelty—thy name is OldHouseDreams…👩‍🎤

    • Just when you think all is lost, your dream home awaits you. 🙂 This house was always my dream home. I contemplated buying other homes and I would always wonder if I could make them look like this home. What’s so strange is that I had never seen this house before, yet I pictured it in my mind. Then after almost settling for another house, I saw this. I couldn’t imagine how I looked at 3 other houses less than two minutes away but they all fell through and none could compare to this. Shortly after…voila this palace appeared right before my eyes and I felt like I had found the love of my life. I appreciate all of the comments as I love old houses also. It has been a journey to say the least trying to revive this beauty but it is a blessing to have that honor. There is always something new to discover. I finally found my forever home. I have enjoyed reading all of your comments.
