Remarkably beautiful natural wood left unpainted in this fine Victorian home in the Historic District. This house has been lived in and loved by the same family for more than 50 years. It is one of the showcase homes along Davie Ave. in the historic district. If you love historic homes and are ready to create a beauty by renovating kitchen and baths, you will love this home. Three sides of the house have been bricked but underneath should be beautiful wood like the wrap around front porch displays. Hardwood floors and the outstanding wood staircase are awesome features of this home. There is a full bath between the main and upper floors. The upstairs is a perfect childrens' room, office, studio. You can create a wonderful home on this corner lot within walking distance to downtown.

    So much charm and beauty packed into this house. I especially love the vintage kitchen and that spacious dining room (with a fireplace, no less!)And what about that price? Home ownership is completely out of reach here in Denver as a similar house would go easily for half a million. Starting to think small town living may be the way to go.

      And I agree about small-town living. I live outside a small eastern city. Life is a bit slower here than in the big cities. We have wonderful restaurants, shopping, schools, museums and entertainment. $180,000 can buy you a nice home here. Generally wages and salaries here are also lower than in those big places, but it’s all relative I enjoy not having to take a 6-lane highway to get anywhere in the area. It’s not for everybody, but I find it glorious!

      Alan, my former 1891 Denver house is 1158 sq ft. While it is adorable, it has few original details and is on an extremely busy street. It is over half a million. This house, in that neighborhood would more likely be $7 hundred thousand. Denver is insane!

    This house reminds me of the delicious little Victorian that Julia Roberts rents in Sleeping With the Enemy, one of my all-time fantasy houses. This cute place has charm and potential just oozing out of it!

    I grew up in Statesville, and it’s a beautiful town, and wonderful location. Right at the intersection of I40 and I77. This house is on a great street, and walking distance to grocery shopping and great restaurants and bars.. look it up!!

    Adorable. Love the porch and the woodwork. Looks like someone dropped some ceilings? And in the last couple interior pics, there are the cracks to go with those. Or a cat hair on the camera lens. Yay for unpainted woodwork, and no 1970s kitchen update to undo. This suburban mouse could go for small town living, but the husband is an urban critter. He says he lives in fear that I’ll find the perfect old house way outside Seattle, but knows the trump card is staying close to my family.

      I hope you find that special old house one day and show that critter what REAL LIVING is like,outside the noisy city and being able to wonder about without the need for ccw permit

      take it from this suburban kitty : “nutting beats being able to wonder about without tripping over one’s neighbors first thing b4 your morning tea/coffee”

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this place… needs a little sprucing up, but I agree the vintage kitchen is great. One thing though… why is this house clapboard on the front and brick in the back? Was clapboard laid over the brick for some reason? If so, why? The brick is quite nice, so why cover it? Would it have been built this way or did someone add this later? (I know one of the resident experts here will be able to address this, which is why we love this site!)

      No expert here, but the style of the bump-out’s shed roof and flat carport looks much more MCM. My guess is that the brick was done at the same time to make the new part look less tacked on.

      Probably so they didn’t have to keep up with painting it. My dad used to loathe painting our house when I was kid. Also, replacing the winter storm windows with the screens in the summertime, especially while clinging to a wooden ladder 2 stories up. The brick may also help with insulating against winter drafts. Unless you have plenty of money to provide unseen but modern updates, living in an old house is not for the timid or weary.
