    I included a street view pic, last one, to show how elegant it looks from the street (despite the dreary day.)

    Wow it’s a gen-u-wine antiballroom houses. Very cool. Seriously, that’s some kind of house. And it’s right by the crossroads in case I want to improve my guitar playing as well (Robert Johnson soul selling reference, no charge)…

      You’re getting some slow applause and a nod of the head over here for that one, Tommy. That was a golden opportunity and you took it.

    OH how beautiful I would love to have this house. Love the wear on the steps I can see kids running up and down them.

    Troy is a college town. I haven’t visited in a number of years, but I had some friends who lived there and they said it was really busy during terms and then dead in the summer. I don’t recall there being much there other than some fast food places, but that was close to ten years ago. It could easily have changed.

    If you like football and want a local team to support, this would be a great opportunity. I just hope a family buys it and not someone who wants to turn it into student housing.

    Is it just me, or does that staircase look like an Italianate? Possibly some features were changed out at a later time?

    I wish I could have seen the back yard and what it has to offer. Surely the 4+ acres aren’t in the front of the house. Gorgeous. I have a few questions to others out there, why would someone block up the fireplaces? Are they drafty or just don’t work? How expensive is it to have them opperable? I love old houses, but don’t want a money pit. I daydream all day on these. I am so happy to have found this site. Thanks so much for making this possible to view these awesome homes.

    There are plenty of reasons people block up fireplaces (which drives me bonkers!). One might be that it’s a coal-burning fireplace and we really don’t use them anymore. You can’t put a standard sized gas insert in them because they are not as deep as gas fireplaces. I think fireplace manufacturers may make some now, but they probably aren’t cheap. Old fireplaces can be very drafty, especially if you don’t know what a flue is or where to find it. They may also be clogged with nests, dead animals, and other debris so if you try to use it, the house fills with smoke or the gas doesn’t stay lit. The bricks may have fallen down and be laying in the hole, or it may need a new liner and whoever covered it up may not been able to afford one, or felt like it, or just put it on their “to do later” list. It may have just needed cleaning and they didn’t know anyone who did such a thing or there was no chimney sweep around depending on the area. My last thought is that they put in a central unit and didn’t want their heat/air going up the chimney. There’s no tellin’.

  9. According to GoogleMaps, the listed address is wrong. The house at this address is not the house in the picture.
