    Whew, this will take a lot to get it back somewhere close to original. Way more that I would tackle, but I hope someone might.

    The exterior of the towered Italianate Richard Keyworth House is still very impressive, although the strict symmetry of the style was compromised by the later left side sunroom addition. The interior features at least one good Italianate fireplace, but there’s some work to do to either backdate or update much of the interior.

    The house itself is interesting and the first thing I would do is fill in the pool and plant a garden. That’s just an idea, probably easier said than done. I have a lot of ideas if only I was 30 years younger!

      Filling the pool might be easier than repairing it. When in-ground pools are empty for an extended period of time they can become structurally unsound because the water pressure helps support the sides. This is one of the reasons it can be difficult to get a mortgage on a house with an empty in-ground pool.

    The exterior is more impressive than the interior! Will need a lot of time and money to restore and update — I wonder if the wiring and plumbing (none lead pipes – incoming and outgoing) are up to code??? Love the bidets!!!

    Could be really beautiful again but there is seriously a lot of work needed on the interior and the grounds.

    So much potential! I’m confused, tho, about the picture that looks like a sink in the wall of a library? Am I seeing that right?

      That could have been the “Gentleman’s Parlor” which sometimes had sinks. I’ve seen them in homes here in Grand Rapids, Mi.

    I love the look of the front but the little porch looks sadly out of place and ill proportioned for the rest of the house.

    Kincardine is a lovely little town on the shores of Lake Huron. Some of the most beautiful sunsets in the World can be viewed here. Bruce Power isn’t that far from here and many in this area work there. That being said, the Winter’s are waist deep in snow!
