    My old hometown!! Must say this is a really good looking house. Several older neighborhoods in Springfield have greatly suffered the last few decades, this one doesn’t look too bad though.

    The mantle and grate with overmantle upstairs is RAD! It probably came out of an older house. Great stylized sunburst window!

    What a great price for this beauty. (Kelly, I love that you regularly include homes priced for “the rest of us”). I LOVE the light floors, they’re so beautiful, and add to the light and airy quality of this home. I also am wild about the downstairs light fixtures, and the cut out niche at the top of the stairs, by the leaded glass window is very interesting. I want to wake up every morning in the violet gray bedroom. Even the attic is aces!

    This house makes my heart sing!!! I would (maybe) consider moving back to the cold for this place!

    I.love.it. Whhhhyy don’t these stunning homes exist in this price range where I live?! 😭

    I don’t mind the kitchen, even thought it doesn’t “match.” I could enjoy cooking in there.

    Would love to finish the upstairs for a reading nook or library.

    Such fun exterior colors!
