    Really lovely wood & that nice stained glass window! Looks as if the companion stained glass was taken out— that’s a shame.In the parlor or one of the rooms on the main floor—hopefully wasn’t Lincrusta that is now gone:-( ? Maybe just wallpaper removed— if Lincrusta a shame.
    However rest of house not too bad and essentials are intact it seems?

      I didn’t know what Lincrusta was so I looked it up, and WOW I was blown away at how beautiful it is. If I ever own a home, I might put that in a dinning room, it’s so beautiful

    The house shown here and the house shown on Google maps look to be 2 different houses. The porch posts are different. If I still lived in the area, I could verify.

      the google photo was taken in 2011, you can see when taken in the upper left corner.

      I can verify for you as this is in my hometown. The bricks at the bottom of the porch had deteriorated to the point they had to be removed and what is there now is holding the porch roof up. I don’t know what the owners were planning to do about the porch. At one time, it was quite a house and could be again. I believe it is structurally sound.

        Thanks for the info! When I lived in the area, I was so sad at the condition of some of the beautiful houses in Guthrie Center. This one looks like one of the worst. Hopefully it can be saved. Gorgeous woodwork!!!!

        It would be nice to think they had documented what they removed in hopes that it could be put back again.

    I sure hope whomever buys this (once pretty nice) home doesn’t paint all that wonderful wood white (my big pet peeve) and brings this old girl to her former self. It could be a pretty neat place. sad to see these homes in this condition.
