Map: Street









This historical home is located in one of the City of Ionia's Historical District and sits right next door to the magnificent Blanchard house. I'm not going lie this home needs a lot of TLC to restore it to the grand splendor it once had in the days gone by, and it is priced accordingly. But what an incredible home you will have once you are done renovating. The wood work is original and remains untouched, along with the 12 ft, tall ceilings. There is a partially enclosed private deck on the east side of the house that overlooks a small creek that borders the property. The boiler and part of the roof was replaced in 2012. There also are large walnut trees on the property that may be marketable as timber. Sellers are very motivated!

    Love the staircase. But a narrow hallway? Not me.

    Wonder what happened to all of the fireplaces? I really don’t even see evidence of them!

    Could be very charming, but it’s going to take a bit of work. And money.

    When it was built, this home may have been heated entirely by stoves.

    Woodwork is beautiful! Narrow staircases in 1860 were not uncommon. Robt E Lee’s Arlington House had both front & back very narrow staircases. 😱 Mystifying as hoop skirts the style in the 1860’s women’s fashion.

    Love that staircase and all the unpainted wood. It could be a beauty at this price, it would be worth it!

    I would think the narrow staircase is off the kitchen area as a back stairs maybe.
