    Thanks to all the OHD Supporters! If you expected your name to be in the list, let me know so I can add it.

    If you’ve not noticed, I took the week off from posting, except for that one post. Did a bit of site/post maintenance but otherwise sat around and played games, took a day trip to North Carolina and read Washington: A Life by Ron Chernow. I cannot put it down! Eye opening and inspiring!

      I LOVE Washington, A Life by Ron Chernow. Washington is my favorite president, and Chernow’s book confirmed it for me. I saw Chernow do a lecture on this book a number of years ago and he’s a passionate speaker, as well. Enjoy that book!!!

    I chose to post this one because it has its own music room with a built in organ. The glass and woodwork have a musical theme as well. I don’t think I’ve ever seen an original room designed specifically for music. It’s amazing! There’s also plenty of fabulous light fixtures and other original features to enjoy as well.

        It’s nice to see an amazing home that looks like it’s loved and lived in. When I wonder why Ohio has so many grand homes, I have to remember it was once the western edge of the US frontier, has the awesome Lake Superior, mighty Ohio river and those brought trade, industry, railroads and adventurers. It was a stopping point for many before they migrated even farther West or became the home of wealthy industrialists. The town of Tiffin has an interesting history and I’m betting this home does, too. The original owner also sounds interesting. I think there’s a book waiting to be wrote.

        Thank you for sharing this! I never thought to look it up. I just kept trying to zoom in to get a closer look. I actually was intrigued by this home because many (many) years ago I took organ lessons at Tiffin’s Heidelberg University. This home brought back some good memories. I’m having quite a bit of fun looking for older homes that have dedicated spaces just for music. It’s not something we get to see often.

      I wish that they would have included more than 9 photos on a house that was built in the 1800s. The interior that you can see looks really great!

        I agree, John! It’s a beautiful house, but there is no way that it was built in 1896! Most of the neighboring houses are older, so there may be some confusion about this one.

    Good morning and happy Friday!

    This is probably stretching the intent of the link exchange a bit, but I think this is an interesting building that you’d enjoy seeing!
    6116 S. King Drive, in the Woodlawn neighborhood of Chicago. It’s a 52-unit courtyard building built in 1905 for Thomas E. Wells. Wells hired Henry Hale Waterman to essentially copy two Frank Lloyd Wright buildings (the Waller apts. and Francisco Terrace apts). Then in 1909, Wells hired a different architect, Douglas S. Pentecost, to copy THIS one for a second one two lots to the south! Wells’s initials are in terra cotta flanking the courtyard archways on both buildings.
    This part of Woodlawn was called Honeymoon Row, since it was largely comprised of large multi-unit buildings, close to the elevated train and two blocks from the now-gone White City Amusement Park.

      I count myself among the guilty but I wish all of us would share more apartments/condos/coop listings. There are some amazing ones, even in smaller cities where you might not expect them. I once visited a friend in Knoxville TN who was renting an apartment (that was probably from 1900-1910 range) that still had its original speaking tubes, Pella-style “rollscreen” steel windows, a vintage kitchen, wood floors, stained glass, etc. Thanks for this share, Mike.

      This house is pretty spectacular. It’s known as Woodside because it was right next to the woods when first built. The whole building used to be open to the public. I guess the fact that it’s for sale means the Historical Society sold it, or that they can no longer afford to keep it.

      That one room with all the leather and wood that doesn’t look like the others was designed by the Herter Brothers, including all the furniture. I’d stay in that room.

      • Ron G says: 91 comments

        The house is beautiful. The stairway is actually called an open well elliptical stairway. It might be interesting to note that in many cases, these large stairways were built off site. There are two reasons for the off site building, one being, this was really a specialty trade and second, it takes a lot of room to layout a challenging project like this. One of the details I noticed was the very plain brackets on the stair stringer.

          Off site even in 1838? Very early pre-fab. I think even most windows were built on-site in this era…correct me if I’m wrong.

          1
          • Ron G says: 91 comments

            Lancaster John, not quite pre-fab. Pre-cut would be a better description for the stairs. You are also correct in referencing window making. As the industrial age progressed, manufacturing these specialty products was now being designed and assembled in a controlled environment. All of these products were able to transition the building industry into a more cost effective venture. All we have to do is look back at the pre-cut homes that were offered by companies such as Aladdin, Wards, Sears and Gordon. There were dozens of these companies, some regional and many were national. These companies all had one thing in common, reduce the cost of building for the consumer. As home building moved forward, prefab panels and complete homes were built in factories to reduce cost. I have seen so many changes in the building industry in the past fifty-plus-years, its almost impossible to list them all here. This covers everything from new products to how we actually build for the growing need for the consumer today.

    I apologize if this was posted last week. It most likely was, but just in case….

    For Frank Lloyd Wright fans, The Ennis House was listed for sale at the end of June. This house is one of his best known homes and has featured in a number of movies.

    https://www.savewright.org/building/ennis-house/?for_sale=1&base-type=wright-on-the-market

    I couldn’t find it on the realtor’s website. I don’t know if that means it was taken off the market or not.

    Extra trivia – The Ennis House was also the inspiration behind Sowden House, which was designed by Lloyd Wright, FLW’s son. Sowden House is well known for two reasons. The first is that locals considered the house exceptionally ugly and vocally hated it. The second is that it was later home to Dr. George Hodel. Hodel is a suspect in the Lipstick Killer, Zodiac, and Black Dahlia murders. Hodel’s son claims the Black Dahlia was actually killed in the Sowden House, and many LA detectives have said that they consider all of those cases closed and Hodel the guilty party. There just isn’t enough evidence to make it official.

    One more FLW listing.

    This is a school that has been converted into a home.

      thanks for posting. i’m a huge wright fan, and love the cement block houses even though they’re all disintegrating, unless–as with the ennis house–you cough up $17 million for a disintegration.

      I love the march of the balloons stained glass in the coonley playhouse.

      • Zann says: 492 comments

        I’m glad I linked the homes via the Save Wright site then! If you haven’t come across it before, you should enjoy it.

        I am not a fan of his, if I’m being perfectly honest, but I am a fan of history, and FLW’s homes tend to be steeped in it.

    • Hoyt Clagwell says: 219 comments

      I love this particularly because I’ve never seen interior pictures of the Ennis house that showed any kind of clear views out the windows, so this is the first time I’ve gotten so see just how dramatically the house hangs over the city below, and how dizzying those views are.
      I’m glad the house has been stabilized, and is now at less eminent risk of crumbling down the slopes.

      A lovely batch. I think I’ll take the last one, on Lindell Ave. Pretty!! Its exterior pics drew me in, and it had me at its spacious & lovely entrance hall. And the rest of the house didn’t disappoint!

    Happy Friday from an apocalyptically hot Los Angeles! I’m sharing some homes from all over the map this week (and therefore, unsure if they’ve been posted before).

    ignore the price tag; let’s talk about the art deco baths. i can imagine joan Crawford icing her face in one. (1930, los angeles, ca)

    here’s a neo-gothic hugging the hollywood hills like an Antoni Gaudi snail. i’m not mad at that 1980s mirrored bath either. (1926, los angeles, ca)
    https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/8142-Laurel-View-Dr-Los-Angeles-CA–69/20798005_zpid/

    a slice of craftsman heaven in the sylvan foothills of the Klamath forest. i feel cooler and calmer just looking at this house. (1912, fern gulch, ca)

    a nice little FLW usonian with an interesting story. Wright designed this one in 1938, but it wasn’t built until forty years later. (1979, ann arbor, mi)

      Thanks’ Rachey. Just fyi – The Hudson, Ave house and the Ann Arbor house have both already been shared. The 1925 house in Phoenix seems nearly entirely altered to me. The pantry IS interesting. It’s really all about that RAD wallpaper. IMO the star is the French Gulch place. Talk about remote! What a gorgeous setting.

      What’s not to like about the Fern Gulch house…..super retreat, except with what’s happened in CA the last few years, and as we write, with drought and all……gosh I’m not sure I could take the plunge in those mountains.

      And…..the Portland house is a wonderful example of its type……not my particular period/style favorite, but it is very livable in an adventuresome kind of way.

    Kia Ora from New Zealand. Since we are in the middle of rainy Winter, I thought I would show some houses from the areas of the country that get a lot more sun than we get where I live.
    These homes are in Nelson, which is at the northern tip of the South Island and gets the most sunshine hours in the country:

    And this is Gisborne, which is also sunnier and drier and renowned for it’s great surfing. It is pretty far away from everywhere else but it does have an airport.
    https://www.realestate.co.nz/3277509
    This original homestead near Gisborne appears to have been relocated because it does not have the mature trees and gardens, not to mention land, you would expect it to have. But it as a lot of potential:

        You are welcome – it’s a good one. I could easily live in that house and sit there with a book or a colouring book and relax with all of the windows and French doors open. But if I am perfectly honest, I prefer a place in the country (like what I have now) where there are no neighbours ;).

            They get tremblors now and then and Kaikoura had a big one last year. There are always quakes going on but they are not always felt. I lived in Ashburton for a year (95-96) when I moved over here so I know Christchurch pretty well – or did before the quake.

      Thanks Julie, for this enticing taste of New Zealand…..had friends there in Tauranga years ago, but sadly never could get it together enough to visit. I adore the, “Nelson Dream,” perfect house/lifestyle for me. Do they permit Americans to purchase property??

      • Julie C. says: 84 comments

        Yes, foreign buyers are allowed to purchase property but you have to meet certain requirements that are vetted through the Foreign Investment Office.New Zealanders are becoming concerned about foreign buyers driving up the price of residential properties (real estate is very expensive here as it is) as well as buying up very large amounts of land (like farms, for example).

          • JulieC says: 84 comments

            They are pretty select here but if you have lots of money you can buy your way in or have a skill we are in need of. Or you can do what I did and marry a Kiwi.New Zealand is very compassionate towards refugees and asylum seekers. They get to stay at a purpose built centre in Auckland for a few months and learn about the country and get English lessons and then they are provided housing, rental allowance and various other benefits.

    This house claims an association with Wright which is more than dubious, but interesting none the less. It’s a tripped out house, and well worth seeing.

      Thanks for the Decatur house. We live in Decatur, and have visited the FLW house — it was recently for sale (don’t know its status right now), and the owner offered an open house to allow the public to see the gem that is a part of our history. I found the interior wide open in the public areas, but tightly cramped in the bedrooms for the cook and maid. The kitchen had been lovingly restored, and the owner had found the original tiles from the kitchen floor in the basement, and replaced them where they belonged. The kitchen was also rather small, but I can’t comment on what would have been the bedrooms of the family (as opposed to the “hired help”) — they were not open to be viewed the day we visited. Of the interior furnishings, only one dining chair remains, though there are many reproduction pieces that are fabulous. His blueprints are the only set of the 3 “Wright designed” homes on Millikin Place that are signed by FLW. The other 2 are his designs, but, since they are unsigned…… I guess some people are purists and others just love the homes. Am including a link to “Millikin Place: Prairie Style Homes” which shows the three houses — stars in a really lovely neighborhood. By the way, the yearly property taxes on #3 are $10,000 (and, given the state’s poor fiscal situation, likely to rise!!)

          Hi Rosewater. All of the homes on Millikin Place are large and interesting, and, blessedly, not at all cookie cutter. If there was a place to post photos, I’d share photos of the fronts of each of them, as well as the Millikin “homestead” (read that as mansion!) and the houses on the next street over that back onto Millikin Place. Some are “just” large, and a few are REAL stunners!!

It’s so interesting and colorful I couldn’t help but love it. If those train tracks are still in use that’s just an added bonus. I love the sound of the night train.

      Looks like the side of the house to the right of the front door needs some serious foundation work. Thought at first it was an optical illusion, but then I saw the angle on the top step leading up to the porch. Watch the marbles roll across those floors!!

        RT,
        Thanks for sharing this amazing collection of homes from the Empire State. Hands down, that Evans Mills really stands out. It is one of the most unaltered 1820’s-1840 stone Greek Revival houses I have seen recently. Calling it a time capsule house would not be inaccurate. Massive beams, wide floor boards and sheathing boards with high quality millwork…all in all a perfect house for a period purist. And if the house itself were not enough for just under $70,000 there’s another 5.38 acres included in the price. Unless there’s something not seen here, this seems like a phenomenal deal for the price.

      I like the Kingston building too. It’s in a part of town called Ponckhockie, once near the old limestone quarries and the docks, not the best part of town. Back in the day, the building was Turck’s Tavern, later Jesse’s, catering to a mixed crowd of mostly Democrats. I remember going to the junkyard nearby as a kid.
      Down the street, accessible through a more fashionable neighborhood and by steamboat, was an amusement park called Kingston Point, a popular day trip destination from New York City. Nice 1906 photo here:

    The Wadsworth family homestead- first time for sale. This home and outbuildings have been in the family for 350 years dating back to the 1600’s. The main part of the home was completed in 1781 with additions done in the later Victorian era. It’s a really eclectic home that for the most part seems untouched! (Check out the dining room table, I’ve never seen feet that big!)

    Here’s the town’s extensive history on the home and family since the beginning, very interesting!

      The Canon City, Colorado, house is likely designed from published plans as I’ve seen a number of houses in different states with this basic twin tower configuration. I agree, it has potential.
      The Henry, IL, Queen Anne style house is from a very popular George F. Barber plan book (Modern Dwellings) design with examples still surviving in a number of states. This one appears to be in excellent condition. Thanks for sharing.

    1880. This has been for sale a long time. It has so much potential, and the price is right. Vintage kitchen and baths. Much of the 1880 trim is intact although painted. Original fireplaces, windows. Most of what this old house needs appears cosmetic…it could be so great with some sweat equity. It even comes with a neat old barn!

    This is not an old house, but if you’re familiar with Antoni Gaudi’s work you will immediately see the inspiration for this architect’s designs. El Jardin is a mixed use building that’s just come on the market. It’s the closest we’ll ever see to Gaudi’s work in the US.

    A PUZZLER–My take on this is that it’s a circa-1860 Gothic cottage, thoroughly and seamlessly Craftsmanized some fifty hears later (but did ANYONE have that much respect for original Victorian fabric in 1910, or build from scratch from AJ Davisesque plans??) Located in the pleasant WNY village of Randolph, and priced at $79,000:

      Charles, there’s information that supports an 1860’s vintage for the house. The house is part of an NRHP Historic District and the description written by a preservation architect in 2012 calls it a c.1865 Gothic Revival house. The exterior is described, and other Gothic houses are listed. A photo of one shows surviving pinnacles similar to those on this house. There is also an early wood-framed Gothic Revival church in town from the same period. (No direct link – see https://cris.parks.ny.gov/)

      The residence of A. Wentworth with a similar footprint is shown there on a 1869 map. Alexander Wentworth was a prominent attorney who began his local practice around 1860. He died in 1911, so a new owner probably updated the house with the Craftsman porch supports and interior after that.

    Puzzle’s me too, Charles B.. I don’t think the massing is vertical enough for it to be a Downing era Gothic Revival. I too see the c. 1910-1915 Craftsman influences. There was a minor Gothic Revival-revival between 1900 and 1920 with the Cass Gilbert designed Woolworth Building 1910-1912 designed in the Gothic style being perhaps the best known example of this short lived revival. Houses are more difficult to find in the Gothic style from this later period but over the years I’ve seen a few with good examples in Springfield, OH, and Mansfield, OH. (both from around 1900) The Randolph, NY example seems to be from a decade or more later but very few Gothic houses were being built at the time. Thus this house truly seems to be an architectural anomaly. However, the Gothic style was still being incorporated in high end mansions (in stone and masonry) built for the titans of industry perhaps because Gothic is associated with the Medieval era and suggests a family pedigree for those with newly made fortunes.

    • CharlesB says: 341 comments

      The Gothic houses I’ve seen from that early-twentieth-century period are either church rectories/parsonages, built in a more historically correct adaptation of the style, or else opulent mansions that incorporate a lot of brick and stucco and elements of the Tudor style. This freewheeling Carpenters Gothic design–particularly with those unmistakably 1860s-looking gable crosspieces–leads me to think we’ve got an older house under there someplace. Other clues are those 4-over-four light windows with the pointed headers on the garage–which are universal in Civil War-era houses in this part of the state–and the corner of the doorframe (apparently of an upstairs bedroom) in Photo 17, with ‘ears’ also characteristic of that period. Whatever the truth is, I picture some 1910 contractor fiendishly rubbing his hands together with a big grin on his face, saying, ‘Heh, heh, heh, this’ll keep ’em guessing!’

    This is a rare bird in this part of the Midwest. A real “Big house, Little house, Back house, Barn. Circa 1876. I have tried to talk my wife into moving here and of course I’m met with the usual “Are you kidding” Its only one hour from the the Twin Cities metro. I’ve been down there once and the barn is falling down but absolutely savable. At 132k that is studio condo money in St Paul.

        Thanks for the working link, Kevin. Nice early Minnesota farmhouse that appears to be a transition as far as form/massing from a Greek Revival style to an Italianate. Impressive large barn out back as well. Looks like the hall alongside the staircase was opened up and incorporated into the parlor. Linoleum tiles also cover the parlor floor but otherwise the house looks fairly intact. With four and a half acres, lots of possibilities for this one. Some period colors would really wake this one up. Here’s the streetview: https://goo.gl/maps/Ucu978xdeVS2

          Always appreciate your input and expertise John. I went down there a couple of weeks ago and the owner happened to be there. She lives in Lacrosse and commutes to mow the yard. She gave me the grand tour. Per your street view the barn to the right has completely caved in. Still worth saving for that kind of money. I have a nice photo of the place from 1879, I’m unable to paste it to the comment box.

            You have a very sharp eye…I did not notice the barn side caving in but upon closer look, the damage is quite clear in Streetview with some zooming in. The Barn still could be stabilized and repaired. I think given the age of the barn and its period details, repairing it would be worth it.

      A look around in streetview suggests this house was once part of a solid neighborhood of houses. You have nearby large tracts and blocks of vacant land dotted with driveways and sidewalks for houses that are long gone. I’m not sure if this wholesale disappearance of houses was part of an urban renewal effort or due to tornado damage, or perhaps both. The new construction nearer to this isolated survivor appears to be mostly warehouses and other commercial buildings. I’m not sure therefore if the house could again become single family or even a rental. It was once a nice home but saving it now may require it being moved to a setting with a residential context.

    • LisaLouLisaLou says: 113 comments

      Could be such a beautiful home again, But for that price? IMO asking way to much for it. Even if you are rich enough to get it moved, you surely wouldn’t want to pay that price. Sad, but I’m afraid this jewel will not make it.

    Lancaster John mentioned upthread a desire to see more listings for historic CONDOS and the like, a desire that I share. In the hopes that others who feel as we do–many of us gave the thumbs-up to LJ’s original remark, after all!–might do the same, I thought that I would share one of my favorite current condo listings. This is one of four similarly-configured units in the massive 1920s Moreland Courts development adjacent to Cleveland’s Shaker Square; all units there have wonderful prewar details and gracious floorplans, but these “studio” plans are truly special. Prices at Moreland Courts look more reasonable than they actually are (especially for more conventional units than this one, which sometimes sell in the mid-five figures) when one takes into account the hefty monthly condo fees, which make mortgage payments the least of one’s worries; according to realtor.com, the fees on this unit are over $2500 per month! Still, it is a stunning place in a very convenient setting where one could easily live a car-free lifestyle and be very close to all of Cleveland’s substantial high-culture offerings:

      It’s claimed to be a design by local architect I. Vernon Hill but many of the design motifs are taken directly from the architectural vocabulary of Louis Sullivan. The interior has a level of design sophistication that also suggests a designer of national or at least regional prominence. If Sullivan had not a hand in this design, then at least his influence is strongly felt. Even the complex leaded glass windows have a Sullivanesque look. One can see a departure in this house towards modernism albeit with an ornate somewhat Gothic overlay. Fantastic house overall that would be a real treat to see up close. Thanks for sharing.

There’s a good amount of surviving lovely original trim, floors appear to be in good condition – a couple of nice fireplaces in the photos but the exterior view indicates there are/were more.

      Better hurry, its only been on the market for 4,693 days according to Zillow. (and I thought our property had been for sale longer than any other!) Dayton is a real mixed bag; some residential areas seem safe while others look like a nightmare on Elm street. I got the impression from our Dayton visit in 2014 that residential blocks can go from safe to marginal from one street over to the next so best to consult with locals before investing in Dayton’s stock of old houses. I would not be willing to risk investing a single dollar in neighborhoods like Daytonview which went from a wealthy enclave of Dayton’s elite families to virtual slum status in recent years. If the neighborhood immediately around this house is considered safe, the early 1900’s mansion does have some nice period details inside that might make it a decent buy.

      While I’m in Texas, I have made multiple visits to Hoosierland. This older (1855) mid-19th century house that was remodeled later in the Victorian era, has been on the market off and on for quite a while. The alleged $20K sale may have been to a lender or otherwise wasn’t a normal sale. Marion is a faded industrial town with a sprinkling of old houses remaining. With few exceptions, Marion’s older houses tend to sell at lower prices although I think in this instance, its unlikely it actually sold for a small fraction of its previous listing price. If somehow it did, then someone got the bargain of a lifetime. Best to contact Jeremy Sundgren (actioneer & broker) https://sundgren.com/jeremy-sundgren/ which is the agent shown next to the sold information on Zillow. I wouldn’t be surprised if this property is still available but Mr. Sundgren would know for sure. Oddly, all of the information on his site pertains to Kansas but that was the link Zillow posted on this Marion IN property.

The place does have some really great architectural and decorative features for sure. You don’t want to live in Marion hon. Trust. 🙂 If it did sell for $20K that’s REALLY sad.

    1802 Cape
    ME

    Just got back from a family reunion on the Cape at a home that has been in the family since 1700. Built in 1640 it is like a museum. I have never been there before but my mother spent summers there as a child. When I figure out how to share pictures I will post some of the house.

    Some nice places from Danville, Virginia.

    1890 Victorian for 154,900. A beauty with, from what I can see, gorgeous mantels. Wish there were many more pictures.

    https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/137-Holbrook-Ave_Danville_VA_24541_M62868-20789#photo14

    This is listed as an 1890 Victorian. This house is gorgeous and the stained glass windows are just breathtaking. Listed at 369,900.

    https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/161-Holbrook-Ave_Danville_VA_24541_M62835-24572#photo0

    Listed as “traditional” and built in 1884 the outside does not give a hint to the beauty that awaits you inside. What a staircase. Listed for 299,999.

    1890 Victorian that has a wonderful slate roof, mantels, staircase, curved walls and incredible woodwork…that has been painted, which some of you are going to be unhappy with. A beautiful house for a great price. 199,500

    At the top of the price list is this 1930 stone Tudor? manor. Very beautiful with horrible realtor photos. Listed at 635,000.

    Here’s a beauty. It’s clearly been a multi-family dwelling, but retains beautiful woodwork and charm. Here’s a link to what it used to kook like http://cmdc.knoxlib.org/cdm/singleitem/collection/p265301coll005/id/1406/rec/1

    1900. Also in Selma. This one is obviously well-built. One of the most elegant staircases I’ve seen in awhile. It’s hard to believe the price:

          It was on the site but I took it down because the comments were more about how Selma is…well, bad according to them. Not exactly motivating to bother keeping a home on the site when it sounds like no one would move there.

            PS, doesn’t matter if it was on the site or not. People miss past posts or it’s no longer here, doesn’t hurt to show it again. Don’t want to discourage people from sharing. 🙂

        It’s been shared a few times; but I don’t believe it was posted. Originally a Steven share if I remember correctly. It is a pretty great house.

    I thought I’d seen this one on OHD at some point, but it didn’t show up on my search. This is a beautiful mansion (7500 sq ft!). Built in 1870. It has the feel of Tara with the VERY tall windows and red velvet curtains in the formal hall. The grounds are equally stunning.
    The price is less than what you spend on a brand new, plastic-ish, HOA-approved-biege, subdivision McMansion.

      Fort Worth, TX

      Thanks for sharing, Cora. Although the construction date is said to be 1870, both the exterior and interior appear to date to about 1900 and if the rusticated blocks on the exterior walls are early man-made concrete blocks then it could be from even a few years later. Somewhere on the premises might be an earlier structure but this Classic Revival is surely from the turn of the last century. In streetview, there are a few older homes nearby possibly from the 1870’s but if that’s the case here, then a major top to bottom remodeling occurred about 30 years later. Lovely home, nonetheless.

      I’m sure I’ve Seen the second one also… I clearly remember the giraffe in the entry hall. Maybe it was a reader share at some point.

    Here’s a wonderful farmhouse that is owned by my in-laws, I think it’d be perfect for your site!

    It was run for quite some time as an award winning bed and breakfast (http://www.thealpinehomestead.com), but my in-laws are looking to downsize. It’s been masterfully renovated, just a wonderful property!

    186? Greek Revival
    New Orleans, LA

    This property is from my very own parents-in-law! They have run the Alpine Homestead (http://www.thealpinehomestead.com) as an award-winning B&B for over 10 years and are now looking to downsize. The house is a 1850s farmhouse in the Adirondacks that’s been fully renovated – we love coming here and it really is a shame it’s up for sale. They’ve done an amazing job bringing this beauty back to life while saving a ton of historic details. There’s also a sizable barn (2 car garage, workshop, 2nd floor) that’s not in the pictures. I think it’s perfect for OHD!!

    This extraordinary home is an excellent example of the American Aesthetic Movement with elements of Queen Anne, Italianate, and Gothic Revival styles. It was built in 1883 by Daniel Townes and completely restored in 1986 (received the 1986 Georgia Trust State Preserva on Award). A treasure trove of detail, the interior elements include extensive wood carving, cabinetry, plasterwork caryatids, and numerous motifs and symbols of the Aesthetic Movement.
    The Foster-Thomason-Miller House is set in the heart one of Georgia’s largest and most successful Historic Districts. It is a short walk to the Cultural Center and Madison’s Downtown shops and restaurants. The 5,000 square foot home is zoned residential and is on 1.024 acres. An adjacent, .86-acre, vacant, developable lot facing Main St. is also for sale.
    In 2001, the rear kitchen addition burned. The main building suffered primarily smoke and water damage. The property will require significant investment to rehabilitate and is listed on the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation’s 2018 “Places in Peril.” It is eligible for significant economic incentives, including Federal Rehabilitation Tax Credits, State Rehabilitation Tax Credits, and a Preferential Property Tax Freeze. A Conservation Easement, not currently on the property, can provide additional tax benefits to a potential buyer.

      Thanks Lisa. What a beautiful home…… not my favorite style or era, but I sure can appreciate it. And it is pristine….. the owners certainly know how to organize. Even the basement laundry is neat and pleasant. Love the kitchen cabinetry. It is perfect for the style of the house and a large young family.
