    I would prefer the sink in front of the window and lighten the stain on the cupboards. It looks so dark but that could be camera. Love the porch!

    Very nice home. Beautiful natural woodwork, stair trim, fireplaces. I don’t know anything about the area but this seems to be the deal of the week to me.

    I’ll repeat my comment on linzyloo’s share:
    A local treasure, owned by the same family for over 175 years! It began as a log house built by Irish immigrant David McConaughey on a large rural tract. He helped bring the railroad here – Cameron is named for the B&O agent who bought the right-of-way from McConaughey, and the town built up around it. The village burned in 1898, was rebuilt in brick and is now a historic district.
    The Queen Anne rebuilding of the log house was done for his son David W. McConaughey (1859-1938), a farmer and local postmaster. D.W.’s grandson John preserved the house and ran a B&B with his wife of 50 years, now a widow. She still owns the home according to the tax records, and recently moved to a senior living home. God bless her.

    The house appears almost wholly intact from its 1903 remodeling, with its old clawfoot tub and some gas fixtures, beautiful millwork, mantels, and glass. At half the 2016 listing price (and low taxes), you can’t do a whole lot better if you ask me.

    Odd pictures that don’t do justice for such a beautiful old home. Gorgeous.

    It had me at the fretwork, fireplaces and that awesome front door! Seems like a steal to me…

    This house is PERFECT. Everything I’m looking for. I hope for the family’s sake it doesn’t take that long, but if this time next year, if it’s still there on the market I will be ready and make a bid. Putting this one in my favorites!

    Amazing home! I especially like the fretwork, open stairway and fireplace in the foyer. The carved wood above the mantel instead of a mirror is gorgeous and very unique. Great price.

    Love the fireplaces, especially the one with the ornate carving near the fretwork! I would have to update the kitchen and bathroom and lighten those wood floors. It’s a great house to call home!

    The condition of the fragile ornate millwork is as good as it gets. You won’t see one like this again any time soon.

    The surviving original gas and electric light fixtures are a really nice bonus in an already very special house… I like the one in the archway at the top of the steps the best!

    I’ll bet this is another house which had it’s own acetylene system; judging by a bit of evidence left on one fixture. Not that anyone besides me cares. Heheheh. 😉

      I’m fascinated by acetylene systems; I’m working on a house now that was built with one! I tried to talk the owners into making it functional again, but they were soooooooo not interested. I tried.
