This home could easily become a beautiful painted lady. The exterior trim is reminiscent of the era in which it was built. Ornate natural woodwork and doors throughout the house add charm to every room and hall. A leaded-glass domed window accents the staircase. Most rooms have floor to ceiling windows, trimmed in natural wood. The kitchen is a blank slate...let your imagination fill in the blanks!

    I’ll answer before the questions are asked…

    1. Foreclosure and already in a lower priced neighborhood.
    2. Just because it’s priced at $10k doesn’t mean it’ll sell for $10k.


    Also please don’t call the agent unless you are actually interested in the home.

        Lot of new people see a cheap home and think I must be selling it. I’ll take bets that even with my disclaimer there will still be people commenting/emailing me for more info. πŸ˜€

          Would you consider $9,750?

            Heck, I’ll take $9750 all day long but it’s a shame you’d be getting nothing back in return.

            PS, I’ll assume you’re joking. πŸ˜€

            Later edit: Disclaimer because we all need more disclaimers around here that say the same thing over and over and over…I am and never will be the agent representing this home.

      Had my fun this morning but I don’t wish to crud up comments with people that can’t read. I wasn’t joking when I said there would be comments from people that fail to read or have comprehension what words mean at all and indeed, there was. I deleted her comments and my replies because who wants to read lunacy?

      So, let me state again… I am not the agent representing this home or any other home on OHD. If you think I’m an agent, I’m still not.


      For the lady that commented, my full name is “Kelly, OHD” so when you send my info to the real estate license board, use that name or they won’t know who I am.

    Surprisingly nice staircase for such an un-assuming looking house.

  4. Zann says: 543 comments

    I see a ridiculous amount of potential here. There is a gorgeous home hiding under some plain paint and lighting choices.

    When I read the phrase β€œdomed window” I automatically thought of something Semi-spherical shaped like a snow globe or a sky light window perhaps. Imagine my disappointment when I saw an underwhelming ARCHED window. Hahahaha.

    The house has some incredible details, especially on the exterior. The white paint scheme doesn’t do it justice.

    aww such a sweet sweet little home! I’d love this baby gem. πŸ™‚

    I wonder about the innards, electric, plumbing, etc. And the neighborhood?
    But it is definitely a diamond in the rough, worthy of some major TLC!!!!

    These are always my favorite. Can you imagine that exterior restored, and with lovely colors? It would stop traffic!

    It is so cheap, just put it on your credit card!

    Generally speaking, the materials to build a house this size would significantly exceed $10k in price. No streetview was available for this location so I looked around town where a limited streetview was available. The town appears typical of smaller towns in this northeast region of Illinois not far from the Indiana border. I did find this huge hulk in the Queen Anne on a streetview accessible corner of Penn Street: https://goo.gl/maps/EoifmSGFxMo
    Now, that behemoth might be a hidden jewel awaiting someone to return it to glory. I’m not 100% sure it was a residence (maybe an institution of some kind?) but it looks pretty grand to me. As for the subject house of this posting, at the low pricepoint I’m used to seeing houses that need everything yet this one almost looks to be move-in ready. If I were living in this region, I’d want to check out this house. Add some TLC and your own personal touches and it could be fantastic. The house design looks like it came from a published plan design perhaps from regional architect George Payne and son of Carthage, IL. who were active at the turn of the last century.

      The mansion you linked was built in 1880 for town founder Thomas Hoopes (1806-1893), and remodeled as a Queen Anne in 1894. Much of its early interior content remained intact when listed on the NRHP in 1985.

      Agree with your comment on the posted house. For the price of a building lot, you get a lovely old home with nice original detail in a small town in farm country. Of course it needs some work – what would anyone expect for the price? Check it out!

    Yes, an agreeable house to most. Be sure to inspect everything, House inspections can be helpful, if you get a good company. Could move in with all that carpet and make a nice home, while doing a few remodels of your own.

Ill make it a point from now on to add that this site does not rep any of the homes, it is a resource for us old house seekers and those wanting to learn more about them. Ive found tons advice and information here. My go to for info on materials and proper construction. β™‘β™‘β™‘β™‘

      Oh, I just noticed I don’t have a disclaimer about on pending pages nor the newsletter! There are normally 3 disclaimers per page but you’d be shocked at how many still email me “I want more information….” sometimes not even telling me what house they are talking about! I am glad some of you read though and comprehend what that means. lol πŸ™‚
