    Ooh, I really like the roofline of this place. At some point a covered porch or at least some kind of more formal front door surround was removed, I think.

    Definitely had a porch, far right side there is a half post still attached to house. Also upstairs door above front door. Looks like porch most likely went all the way around to the side door on the left side. Would love to see an old photo with that porch.

    Wish there were more pictures. What few there are, look enticing.

    Is the above ground pool more a Victorian or Queen Anne architectural feature? Either way something the kids will love is always a plus!!

    This house would be classified as a (Dutch) Colonial with the multiple Gambrel shaped gables and main Gambrel (barn type) roof. Such nominally “Colonial” style houses were very popular at the turn of the last century. I agree with others that an expansive, perhaps wrap-around porch was part of the original design but it appears it was more recently removed now giving the house a top-heavy appearance. Hopefully, if the next owner(s) is restoration minded, an older photo showing the original porch might be available to guide in a replacement porch’s construction. There also appears to be an upper door above the main entrance so there could have been a balustrade enclosed platform or perhaps a small balcony porch in the original design.
    As for the design provenance, the house shares some design similarities with published house plans from Jacob H. Daverman (& Son) which in the early 1900’s claimed to be the most prolific house plan firm in America. However, I’m not aware of any online accessible copies of Daverman’s plan books so I have no way of confirming or ruling out that this could be a design from that Grand Rapids, MI, firm. Although the house needs some work the asking price clearly reflects that.
