    Oops, nearly forgot the link exchange post today! No idea the whereabouts of today’s old house photo.

    Posts this weekend. 😀

    Challenges for shares this week…more over sea homes! England, Scotland, Spain, Germany BUT…priced below $500k (can be in CAD, Euro, whatever too.) I’ve searched around but it takes away from post time and since y’all look too…well, have fun and let’s see what you can find us!

        I joked with my husband, I need to start a new site with only oversea old homes (I’m a bit afraid if I go crazy posting them on OHD, might make a few grumble…not that I should be concerned with it but I am, silly me.) Not sure what I’d call it though. Edit: Going to keep doing it on OHD but it won’t show up in the main RSS or home page unless searched…eventually, right now it’s going to stay the same.

            I could use my other domain, andnowtherest.com (been using it for a test site for OHD stuff) but I guess unless one knew about OHD they wouldn’t understand why I called it that. Hmmm…now I’m seriously thinking about another site for reals (in addition to, not as in replacing OHD.)

          I’d vote for that, as one who often skips the over-seas posts, with the exception of Great Britain. Then again, we always have the option to just skim over the styles and locations that don’t appeal to us, no need to make more work for you!

            What about just adding a new tab for the overseas houses? Binging on castles would only be a click away. ?

            BTW, my 2 cents: I love seeing the old world dreams! I especially like to take Google tours around the quaint little villages.

              TXJewel, that is what I am going to go with, much easier on time and my wallet to keep things on OHD but just hidden (not really hidden.)

              I’m going to continue testing over sea homes as regular posts, up to 2 a day but not more and see how it goes. If it looks like people REALLY are enjoying it, I’ll do the tab/separate page thing with international listings.

          Shenzhen & SoCal,

          I’m happy to see the overseas properties. I have an attorney friend who is an owner of several world-class award-winning Arabian horses and a judge of world competitions, with clients such as the King of Sweden, some of the Saudi Princes, Wayne Newton and others. He wants to acquire an equestrian property in greater Europe so your posts help to locate specific properties for consideration as well as representatives of such properties. Thank you.

            Thanks dOvira, that inspires me to post more than the crumbling cheap ones. Maybe a castle or mansion or two ever so often. 🙂 I’ve found a few different sites that are search friendly and in English, so I shall expand my searches beyond.

            I’ve been searching the Netherlands but the prices puts them on the back end of my to post list. I wouldn’t even know where to start with Asian listings, the old and interesting ones are a little harder to find in that part of the world.

          Hi Kelly, I’m a long time fan of you and your site. It’s one of my cherished spots to relax and dream. A EU centric site would be fun, too. However, as someone who has lived on 4 continents it’s only appropriate to point out that the USA has less than 5 percent of the global population, so calling something ‘international’ as meaning it’s not in the USA seems quaint to the other 95%. You see, for those 95% the USA is indeed international. I know you have an audience that extends beyond the boundaries of the USA. How about something like “DreamsOfOldHousesInEurope.com? It’s available.

          Kelly, you’ve come a long way from posting mostly humble rural homes. The occasional posts back then of more expensive houses in New York or Illinois seemed like they were in a foreign country, exotic in comparison.
          The idea of “old house” is very different in Europe where old homes aren’t very unusual. I love looking at old buildings anywhere, though context is important and the concept of preservation varies tremendously in other places. Ancient houses in China are being lost at an alarming rate, but do we care? I can’t remember many posts from Latin America, where the old house context is most similar to our own.
          You’ve done a great job building the site and your instincts have proven correct on most matters. Just please don’t forget where you came from, and what you really care about.

            I’m not going to go crazy posting European homes, one or two a day at most. 😀

            The whole accepting owner and agent submissions really threw off what I normally post. Too many expensive “meh” homes (I’m sure if anyone is reading this, YOUR home wasn’t, lol) but still, it wasn’t a good idea. Also stuck in my head are the voices of the complainers (it’s really mostly Facebook, comments here are pretty good.) Homes in not so great neighborhoods (which equals the CHEAP homes) or bad schools, so I’ve been avoiding posting homes that are cheap but in not so great areas. I’m not saying I don’t post those, sometimes the home itself overrides the idiots that complain on FB when I post something they don’t want to see. Same goes “insert state here”, I’ve got a pile of NY, NC, IL and other states I should post but…the voices (not real voices, just the nag of voices past.) I need a good ol’ fashion brainwashing to get rid of the years of complaints that have hung on.

              Yeah, it’s easy from this side to say what’s right but we don’t have to read your mail!

              You could do a great blog on just about anything and find a following – Old Stuffed Toys anyone? It’s your eye and voice that make OHD special. There are tons of Pretty House sites that just don’t get it. Imagining the Beauty That Was or the Beauty That Could Be Again is more alluring than seeing how some decorator wannabe painted up their house.

                The other house sites are contributor based (as in agents/owners.) They rely on their income by accepting everything, which is understandable if they want to pay their bills.

                Relying on ads and donations for income gives me so much freedom to be picky (except for the agent/owner submission thing, sorry folks.)

                By the way, I was FINALLY able to buy back my old domain name, Oldhousedreamer.com. We are coming up on the anniversary of this whole old house blog “hobby” of mine, 7/2/2009 (OHD is a bit older than that, I started on blogger but just go with the Oldhousedreamer domain registration.)

                I think you were thinking I meant “Euro” as “European Union” Which is a political affiliation. I meant it to be short for “Europe” which is of course geographical. Maybe people wouldn’t get it.

      Thanks. Pass on the house link it is all original. The current owners are only the 3rd. All the original wood mill work is intact, all the hardware, etc. They did a great renovation–all the charm with modern updates. It was in Southern Living in 1950! The neighborhood has 87 homes on the National Registry. All of them are intact–no endangered homes–it is so beautiful in Historic West Haven every home is different with astounding architecture.

    Here’s a 16th century palace for sale in Spain. I don’t know the Euro conversion rate, but I’m fairly certain that 275,000 is still under $500k in dollars?

      That’s about $235,000 US dollars. The euro has now dropped to less than a dollar. No wonder this palace is so cheap as it’s in Extremadura. If you’d been there you would know why they named it so… “Extremely Tough” because life was so difficult there. Most of the conquistadors were from Extremadura since, as impoverished nobles, having nothing to lose they went in search of making their fortune in the new world. The place was akin to a lunar landscape.

    Happy Friday! Here are a few 20th century finds. Apologies if some have already been shared.

    1. A 1936 Craftsman (maybe?) in Augusta, GA. The 1936 date seems off to me. Parts seem older, other parts are definitely newer. Maybe there was a big renovation in 1936? Anyway, lots of interesting rooms – would be nice to see them painted anything other than the variety of primary colors seen here.

    2. A 1930 Tudor in Granite Falls, NC. Looks a little deserted but has a nice lake-side setting and porches. Cool double height living room with beams galore. Updated kitchen is meh.
    https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/5434-Moore-Acres-Dr-Granite-Falls-NC-28630/70102326_zpid/?fullpage=true

    3. A big old 1931 Tudor pile in Akron OH, (9,000 Sq Ft!). Lots of original bathrooms and great details if you look beyond the owners’ penchant for painting every room a different deep color.

      The Granite Falls, NC house seems like a mix of old and new pictures or something–some show it looking “a little deserted” as you said, and some show it looking well care for and occupied. Regardless, I LOVE it! I immediately went into fantasy mode . . .

      Don’t hold back now Steven. 😉 Looks like inter-war wins this week! Talk about a smorgasbord of fascinating properties. Outstanding. I could spend the next twenty minutes gushing about the lot of them. Instead I’ll hope they get posted and save it for there.

      I simply can not resist saying at least a bit about the P H E N O M I N A L Tudor E X T R A V A G A N Z A in Dayton. OM__G. Generally I’m not that into Tudors, (no matter how big or how fancy), but when they display architectural brilliance and uniqueness such as that – – well, that’s something else again. I’m going to clip that house for my collection and cherish it. Thanks’ Steven.

    Couple of good ones in the Hoosier state this week.

    House A:
    Check out this nice solid, well maintained brick Victorian which has had a VERY light handed update up in Fort Wayne for under $140K!

      I adore the first house. The square chandelier in the entry is very unusual. I like that the kitchen, while not original, hasn’t been updated since the 50’s? 60’s? The exterior color scheme is very attractive, too. Fabulous.

      House 1 is fantastic. LOVE the exterior color scheme = VERY attractive, and period appropriate. God bless someone for scraping the paint off of those RAD doors.

    I come bearing goodies from THE old house cornucopia – KENTUCKY! Here’s a handful of top shelf house flesh to please every sort of old house lookie loo!

    House 1:
    Fresh to the market is yet another top shelf, early, important, National period masterpiece in Maysville.

    https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/227-Sutton-St-Maysville-KY-41056/234521678_zpid/?fullpage=true

    House 2:
    Check out this fantastic, CHEAP, live / work, hardly touched, character property in a lovely part of the state South of Lexington on the Green river. It was probably a fraternal lodge up and store down. Now it can be anything you want it to; and the best part is that it has not been muddled!

    https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/415-Highway-227-N-New-Liberty-KY-40355/194666463_zpid/?fullpage=true

    House 3:
    Genuine, honest to God, Old Kentucky Home, even closer to Lexington is positively drenched in down home farm charm, AND comes with Hoyt Clagwell!!!

    https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/5005-Ash-Grove-Pike-Nicholasville-KY-40356/2137313318_zpid/?fullpage=true

    House 4:
    This is a later house on an older planter’s property with a pretty creepy older dependency from another time. The house has been tractified quite a bit, but still has loads of Victorian character, and a couple of GREAT fireplaces.

    https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/100-Ash-Ave-Pewee-Valley-KY-40056/105920407_zpid/?fullpage=true

    House 5:
    Early inter-war, proper house in Louisville looks like it belongs EXACTLY where it sits; has VERY fine architectural quality, and delightful symmetry. The poor thing is positively SCREAMING for someone to come in and rescue it from interior design mediocrity and return it to the gracious elegance and chic it SO richly deserves. The man of the house will be WELL PLEASED down in the oh so RAD rathskeller.

    https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1-6-Decatur-Dr-Louisville-KY-40218/73452151_zpid/?fullpage=true

    https://photos.zillowstatic.com/p_f/ISyrjx3adcefd50000000000.jpg

    It’s from the latest cigarette condo tower with full floor units to open across the city. I must admit that it is the most attractive of them yet built or planned: A very elegant structure which nearly disappears into the sky.

      1901 Folk Victorian
      Chestatee, GA

      “Folk Victorians were built using plan books published by architectural companies.” It was my understanding that Folk was National Folk homes but with Victorian decorative details, not usually designed by planbook architects. Their list starts out good but…Storybook? Those are usually Tudor Revival or French Eclectic. I can only imagine the bricks that would be shat if I went by their list of styles. Someone here already has a problem with some of the homes I call Prairie, it’s the only time they’ll comment to declare I’m an idiot! LOL

      Adding…some refer to Stick Victorian as Eastlake while I consider Eastlake a term (I know, it was invented by a guy) for the decorative features applied to Sticks or Queen Anne homes.

      • Beanbag says: 56 comments

        yeah im under the impression eastlake refers to furniture and light fixtures and such and can be applied to both itlaliante and queen anne style victorians.

    I LOVE the idea of non USA houses on their own site. I worry if you have the time, but only you can answer that Kelly :).
    The reason I think it merits its own site is this: With all the world wide talk of immigration, basically every one of us in the US has come from ancestry of immigration. When you would log into an International Old House Dreams site, you can think of the places your grandparents and great grandparents, etc migrated from. Mixing them in with the US ones, takes your mind off looking at real estate here, (so many of us in addition to dreaming of houses around the country, are seriously looking) and switching from studying the way others live out of this country, locations we never thought of, etc while viewing the International ones. It has become increasing popular in recent weeks with all of us who come here / post here, so the merit is worth considering. It feels to be its own wheelhouse, since SO many posts have been found out of the country for those of us to enjoy : ) Old House Origins (playing on the ancestry / migration theme). Oh and Kelly….. Thank You for this site and ALL you do to make it simply the best site of this kind on the internet, we So appreciate you !

    I’m selling my limestone construction 1903 Carnegie Library located at:

    124 North 16th Street, Elwood, Indiana 46036.

    This is an incredible property and an extremely rare find. Elwood is lenient with zoning (a historic church is a converted residence a couple of blocks away) and my library is not in a protected Historic District. If you are interested then act fast, I anticipate that this will go quickly once more groups/blogs are notified. $95,000

    My agent, Tracy Ward from Carpenter Realtors; is available via cell at (317)537-7348. She is extremely friendly and competent.

      Pricey for the city and state, but glorious one-off no-comps type of place. 20+ years ago much more than the present asking price, I’ll bet, was spent to restore it by an architect and his wife who rescued it from apartment usage and made it a palatial home office.

      Your picks are a delight and a pleasure as always RT. TY

      The barn house in Craryville is the most spectacular, imaginative, and beautiful of it’s sort I have ever seen. The simple, garden path approach to the front door is magical, and brilliantly sets the stage for what lies within. The equally enchanting grounds and outbuildings add even more dimensions of character and charm to this phenomenal tour de force of architectural re-imagining. I hope they get every penny of the ask. WORTH IT!

      At first I was dismissive of the fixer in Medusa, but as the MANY pix kept going by I found myself more and more of an enthusiast. The fine little entry and main and upper hall really had me pulling for it by the end. The great property and very nice farm structures are a huge + as well. It would be a joy to see that someone had cleaned the place up, loved it, and treated it right. TY 🙂

    Has anyone ever heard of this plantation house in Morgan Co., GA? It’s just sitting empty! And looks totally worthy of a fabulous restoration. It’s so captivating! Interior photos here:

    Ok. How about a gutted Tudor in Toledo for $7.

    Yes. SEVEN dollars.

    Surely, there’s a catch?

      The “catch” is that you have a home in a city that is dying a slow and painful death. If you do a map search on one of the real estate apps, you’re gonna see that there are many homes in the area of this one that were obviously grand at one time but have fallen by the wayside as the mass exodus has progressed. Very much like Detroit (60 miles to the NE), Toledo was/is heavily industrial and as the industries have changed, so has the city. Will it rise out of the ashes as Detroit is beginning to? Good question… I certainly hope so because for nearly 45 years it (and the slightly smaller and less “sophisticated” Ft Wayne IN) was the closest “city“ to where I lived at the time (Defiance OH) and I loved going there. I was back in Toledo about 5 years ago and it just made me sad! Friends in the area have told me it’s only gotten worse. Lots of drugs, poverty and crime. ☹️But still… Seven dollars for a house anywhere seems to be a pretty good deal!

      Shenzhen & SoCal,

      Might be worth a roll of the dice, or again, could be $6.50 too much. There’s plenty of work to be done. The absence of the lower level windows suggests that vandals entered through them to remove as much of the plumbing and wiring as could easily be taken and sold. And the operable windows upstairs suggests heavy water intrusion. Clearly this property has very serious issues, but like the lady says: “Seven dollars for a house anywhere seems to be a pretty good deal!” Someone is going to take the chance. I hope they have some very deep pockets and are very young with great energy and a vision.

      We’ve seen some pretty great houses, and one really great house, in Toledo over the years; and some of them even survived the purge! The one on Collingwood from earlier this year is a knockout of great features; and was listed really cheap. Toledo is a tough sell.

      Hi RT,
      This one was posted in the past on Old House Dreams. I don’t recall the previous asking price. Compared to the old photos, it looks like some cleaning up occurred inside and someone painted part of the front facade with white paint. The need for repairs and TLC hasn’t changed since the previous listing. I put the house in the good bones category meaning its has some nice historic details but it will likely need substantial work. If someone has the wherewithal to do a careful methodical restoration the end result could be amazing. The large 1.1 acre lot is another appealing feature. Thanks for sharing this one. (again)

    See where i was yesterday 🙂 (I did not get inside or anything, just drove by it. I think it was empty, not inhabited)

      Nice one! The barn is impressive in size! I felt so stupid because when I opened the listing I saw “1700” and I thought “there’s no way this kind of house dates back to 1700”. And seconds later “silly me, this is the address!” 😀

    Thanks to everyone for the name suggestions. I’ll look into adding a blog within the OHD blog, it sure will save money for hosting and having to buy plugins to help with certain features of a new site.

    I’m not sure I’ll be posting today, need to do some life stuff so not sure how much time will be left in the day once we are back. 🙂

    The Cotswolds, UK are a region of yellow stone buildings, glowing in the sun. Been there 2 times, will go again! Shakespeare was born there in Stratford-upon-Avon

    This week Kelly featured this old house in Youngstown, OH.

    https://www.oldhousedreams.com/2018/06/20/1922-youngstown-oh/

    I was fascinated and researched some of the past owners of this property. In the process I found this recent Masters thesis on the Mill Creek Riding Club in Youngstown. It is relevant because the owner of the above house was the Secretary/Treasurer of said Club. Further of interest to OHDers is because Appendix C, from pp 107-114, has current pictures of many of the old houses, including the one above, which belonged to the founders/members of this Club. Some may be interested and fascinated to read the entire thesis which deals with the social and economic issues of Youngstown, OH in the 1920s and 1930s, and how the Depression affected these social clubs and old homes. I know from reading comments that there are several ‘horsey’ people on this site. Much of the thesis is about the horses and horse shows that the men from these houses put on through the Mill Creek Riding Club.

    Doing research, I can have another “site” within OHD. Everyone will still be able to have their saved favorites list, login and account without having to switch to another site. When I set it up, International listings won’t show on the main page but a separate page (same look) and it’s own RSS feed meaning a separate newsletter. Not so complicated but I’ll need to do some code stuff, the fun part! Maybe by next week or two. 😀 The name game was fun though, I enjoyed seeing what people came up with and I’ve bought a few suggested domain names just in case. 🙂

          Thanks for the secondary link-it worked. Unusual house here that appears to have been constructed of rusticated concrete blocks. They were extremely popular during the first decade of the 20th century as an affordable man-made construction material. The distinctive gables look similar to those in published designs by Herbert C. Chivers and Fred T. Hodgson. The interior is a cross between a late Victorian era and early Bungalow in its details. While I was streetview touring around the area, I noted a couple of yard signs posted by the West Kentucky Historic Preservation Learning Lab but I wasn’t able to find anything online about the entity. I do recall that Paducah once had an innovative program to attract artists and creative individuals through a $1 rehab house program.

      Nice House. It is also a classic David S. Hopkins (Grand Rapids, MI) plan book design that was among the most popular by this prolific architect. There’s an example of this design in Terre Haute, IN, in Anderson, IN, and another in Mannington, West Virginia. I believe it was posted on Old House Dreams at one time in the past. Thanks for sharing.

    For a fantasy (mine) two family homes, ten seasonal cottages, a deep water dock, and 219 feet of salt water frontage. Eeeeeeeeeee!!! Right in Bristol, one of my favorite areas of Maine. It has been in operation since 1950 and has not been for sale since 1908 and is just down the road from Pemaquid lighthouse. I wish.

      This is one of several Weatherford, Texas, landmark Victorian homes. The towered Queen Anne was built from a George F. Barber design. A number of Barber designed homes remain in Weatherford. As I recall, this was on the market in the past. The interior has been decorated for its use as a bed & breakfast. Given the amenities, including a pool and expansive grounds of 5+ acres, it seems realistically priced for the local market. Weatherford, which I can remember from over 50 years ago, was just a small Parker county seat community going west from Fort Worth but today has grown by leaps and bounds as a bedroom community for its much larger neighbor to the east.

    Nice c. 1900 farmhouse with large outbuildings just came on the market: https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/2237-E-575-S-Star-City-IN-46985/85671941_zpid/?fullpage=true No past sales records found so this may be the first time on the market in a long time. Star City is slightly northwest of Logansport (and Indianapolis) in north central Indiana. The acreage amount is not provided but probably consists of several acres. Seems reasonably priced for the features offered. The house interior has some nice late (post 1900) Victorian details such as pocket doors, fretwork, and a period staircase.
