    I’m recycling today’s old photo from one of the first link exchanges coming up on 3 years in a couple of months. Nothing is known about the location or the kids in the window. I’m skipping this week’s book recommendation. 🙂

    Thanks to this month’s OHD supporters!

      Thank you for the excellent job you do! Your post is one of the few things I religiously check for in my email. I missed the old photo first time ’round. I’m a fanatic about Craftsman architecture, and for me this is near perfection. Thanks for posting it again.

    I love today’s house; I wasn’t around three years ago, so thanks for recycling. In the meantime…..Happy Friday! I took a virtual tour of my birth State, Michigan, this week to discover a few 20th century homes. Apologies if some have already been shared.

    1. Located in Benton Harbor, this 1937 Colonial Revival features a 1950’s(?) pine kitchen. Overall, this place is a bit of a 1970’s time capsule with a wonderful lake view, priced at $800K. I’m itching to rip off that unfortunate car port addition.
    https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1738-W-Benson-Rd-Benton-Harbor-MI-49022/73872297_zpid/?fullpage=true

    2. Also located in Benton Harbor but for half the price ( $400K – no lake view I guess) is this cool 1937 Tudor with some wonderful fireplace mantels and a Vitriolite-clad bathroom.
    https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1530-Miami-Rd-Benton-Harbor-MI-49022/73865434_zpid/?fullpage=true

    3. Another Tudor, this one from 1926 located in Sturgis for $250K. This has probably the prettiest front door surrounds I’ve ever seen and one of the coolest fireplaces ever. I love the original metal casement windows that go to the floor in the living room. https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/200-S-Nottawa-St-Sturgis-MI-49091/74810268_zpid/?fullpage=trues

    4. A very interesting single-story Tudor located in Jackson and built in 1923. This home features some of the most intense vaulted ceiling action I’ve ever seen. Alas, some has been painted, but enough unpainted remains to appreciate the original look. Check out the picturesque, wavy roofline. $425K.
    https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1655-Kibby-Rd-Jackson-MI-49203/74090297_zpid/?fullpage=true

    5. Log cabin lovers rejoice; this 1925 log home in Brighton is on log steroids. There are logs everywhere! I’ve never seen the exterior of a log home painted before, but I like it. The home is listed for $369K.
    https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/5809-Community-Dr-Brighton-MI-48116/23939822_zpid/?fullpage=true

    6. Purportedly of Swiss design and constructed by European builders, this 1925 summer home in Au Gres looks like something from a Ralph Lauren catalogue. The $900K price probably reflects the lake-front location, the guest house and seven additional acres across the street. I know what I would be doing right now if I had a spare $1M to spend.

      The Tudors are beautiful. The first one I like better (with the exception of a few things) than the second, but in that second one—the fireplace! Wow, incredible.

        I agree about the fireplace on the second home. Is it unusual to have the mantel recessed? I love the decorative tile around it.
        The Au Gres is wonderful and to be on one of the great lakes. This place reads relaxation.

      How about the little man in stonework on that last one? So cool! I really love all of them and that gorgeous front door on #3 is extra welcoming! My very favorite is the #2 tudor. I would even let the knotty pine paneling in the basement stay (and, I really dislike knotty pine)! I like the updated kitchen and the pretty stairs and hall, but it just looks like the bricks on the outside were “quilted”. It’s so unique and it really grabbed me! Thanks so much, Steven, for the lovely trip around Michigan!

    • James Owens says: 14 comments

      Amazing collection of homes! Are you sure there isn’t supposed to be a “1” in front of the price of number two?? If I could tolerate the MI winters, I’d be there by the end of the year.

      Thank you for this wonderful tour of some of the Michigan homes! I really love the Sturgis home and would move in tomorrow not caring if I couldn’t see the lake. I live on Lake Michigan and it’s like a mini ocean. The winds coming off the water can be fierce and the fog that blankets the area is depressing at times, not to mention very chilly and damp. Many thanks Steven!

      That’s really nice. I love the yellow of the house! I bet it was originally white-or maybe not. I looked at the listing of the log home too. Also a nice place-quite the rack on the buck’s head! I wonder if it was taken locally.

    ST. AUGUSTINE, FL’S HISTORIC C.1887 HIBBARD HOUSE FOR $1.39M

    http://www.priceypads.com/st-augustine-fls-historic-c-1887-hibbard-house-for-1-39m-photos/#

    The historic Hibbard House shares a striking resemblance to the fictional set house in the 1998 film Practical Magic. While not quite as charming as the one from the film (in our opinion), this real-life Florida home offers all kinds of historic charm and detail of its own! The 3,600 square foot Victorian was professionally restored, bringing back life to many of the home’s fixtures, including woodwork, a three storey staircase, three fireplaces and mouldings throughout. There are four bedrooms and four bathrooms, an updated kitchen, updated bathrooms and a quaint backyard

      Oh MY GOODNESS! There was never an old house that moved me so much to buy it! Of course, it’s absolutely out of my budget, but I can dream! I would definitely call the room with that giant window in it for mine~ I just love the shape of it! Usually, the great old homes are in the cold, but my “old bones” lol cannot handle the cold much anymore! The only thing that it is missing is a swimming pool in the back yard! Saving this in my Zillow faves (just in case I happen to hit it big some day)!

    Kia Ora from New Zealand.

    This turn of the century home is gracious, beautifully decorated and retains many of it’s original character features and Matai flooring. I also love the fact that it is in the country and has lots of mature trees. I was unable to find a valuation for it so I can’t give you an idea of what it might go for at Auction plus it is an area I am not familiar with in terms of the real estate market.

    https://www.bayleys.co.nz/2310096

    A grand original homestead in the Wairarapa region about an hour north of the capital. It is full of original woodwork, from the walls,floors and built ins and stays true to it’s farming heritage with a hint of hunting lodge thrown in. You even get a swimming pool and vineyard. It is for Auction and the valuation is at $NZD1,275,000.

    https://www.realestate.co.nz/3404900

    If you have to live in Auckland and love cottages then this one in Ponsonby would do the trick. It would have been built around the 1880s as a home for working class families and fortunately the current owners have not opted for the all white exterior nor have they stripped the interior of all it’s character. You are literally a few minutes walk from a lot of cafes, restaurants and shops in one of the most trendy parts of the city. It is for Auction and it’s valuation is $NZD1,675,000.00.

      • Julie C. says: 109 comments

        Thank you. That house is a real beauty. I love everything about it and the decor is perfect. The only downside (and I speak from experience) are the gardens and acreage. I am on 10 acres, 7 of which are covenanted native bush and the remainder is park land and gardens. It is a lot of upkeep.

    Greetings to all,
    I had a good time wandering around New York this week. To start off:

    1900 Harpersfield, NY 385,000
    Lots of land, stonewalls, nice interior, updated kitchen, but seems to fit in with the rest of the home. What a nice surprise to see the murals in the front hall, created by prior owner, Lamont Warner, who, was a designer for Stickley.

    • Cathy F.Cathy F. says: 1637 comments

      Holy mackerel, talk about coincidence! I grew up in Stamford, slightly east of Harpersfield. Lamont Warner was my elementary school Art teacher in the mid-1950’s thru early 60’s!

      Those murals are gorgeous! And the funny/odd thing is… As a student, I thought his classes were extremely boring & repetitive. I only found out about his work as a Stickley designer in Manlius (nr. Syracuse) in my 40’s. I wish, as a child, that I had known about his artwork, other than the very ‘stiff’ lesson plans he presented us with in school.

      It’s so difficult for me to think of those Art lessons as being taught by the same man who was a Stickley designer & who did these beautiful murals!

        Cool coincidence & funny story! This house looks older than 1900, even down to the wide floorboards. Cozy inviting place; the kitchen makes me want to stay & talk. Most wall murals are,to my mind, asking to be covered up, but this one is appealing & well done. Great property too. Wish I could move in tomorrow.

    1856 Newburgh, NY 749,000
    From the realtor: Frederick Clark Withers early Victorian masterpiece “Glenbrook”, built in 1856 for gentleman horticulturist, David Clarkson, of Clarkson University. Arguable on of the most important masonry Victorians in the Hudson Valley, its fireplace was replicated for the Metropolitan Museum.

      Nice house that was neglected and hit by a paint bomb years ago. The exterior was white too until recently repainted the brick color. Fun to see the late 1930’s bathrooms in there.
      Balmville is a pleasant spot just north of Newburgh. Withers’ better-preserved Maple Lawn is just down the road.

    1900 Albany, NY 210,000
    Shingled Victorian, rather dramatic and compact. I am a little hesitant about the kitchen. It looks like it was put in for a quick sale and not sensitive to the integrity of the house.

      I’ve never seen a Victorian like this and really love it. The owners get high marks from me with that dramatic but not garish exterior paint scheme. The builder gets the same for being creative in a tight spot.

    From the northern Cincinnati suburb of Norwalk, Ohio, is this impressive brick towered Second Empire style house said to date to 1856. (probably a decade or two later based on the details) https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/145-W-Main-St-Norwalk-OH-44857/34444131_zpid/?fullpage=true It is priced at $155,000 and with a generous .63 acre lot and over 3,000 sq. feet inside seems to be bargain priced.

        Oops! Thanks for keeping me honest. I was thinking or NorWOOD, not Norwalk. Norwood does have some architectural gems but most were built later than this example. Norwalk’s location does not diminish the appeal of this fine home. Another friend corrected me about the house being Italianate rather than Second Empire. While I tend to side with those who believe even a small tower mansard roof places a house in the Second Empire category, there’s nothing wrong with classifying homes only with full mansard roofs as belonging to the French style. Presenting or sharing information clearly and correctly is very important to me so I sincerely appreciate your clarification. I have visited Norwood so I guess I also need to visit Norwalk so I can remember the difference.

      Thanks! That’s a beautiful property in an ancient area the Huguenot settlers called Bontecoe, for the fertile soil at the bend of the Wallkill. The 1825 Hasbrouck house for sale is one of the later houses there, with a few others from the early to mid-1700’s surviving, including the original White Duck farmhouse down the lane:

      All this, and acreage too! So nice to see an old house whose lot hasn’t been whittled down to just enough land to walk around the house. It seems we’re seeing a lot of Federalists that have been either kept up or restored to close to original, allowing for modern plumbing, electric, etc. thanks for that, Kelly! If I lived here, I’d use it for my all year round home, not a weekend place in the country. Houses this nice should be lived in, not just visited by their owners.

      I agree about the kitchen, yummm. I wanna buy it furnished — it’s all so appropriate. It jars me a little to see later newel posts in some of these old places that are out of sync. Incredible property too — I never think of New Palz as so rural, wonderful.

      1889 Eastlake Cottage
      Fort Worth, TX

      Streetivew reveals a mystery here. There are over a half dozen very similar towered Queen Anne style two family homes in a row along Kilpatrick Street suggesting this was some kind of planned development. Wikipedia provided an explanation: “In the early 1880s, brothers Frank and Walter Kilpatrick, investors from New York, along with their father, Edward, established a lumber company in Bridgeport. Believing the city’s location and resources had extraordinary potential for development, the Kilpatricks began buying up land in the area. Other investors became interested in the city, and in 1889 the Bridgeport Land and Development Company was incorporated. This company bought up land and laid out a new grid pattern for the city, which incorporated in 1891. Frank Kilpatrick, who became the city’s mayor, built a series of imposing Queen Anne-style houses on the street now known as Kilpatrick Row. Several factories, including a pipe works, stove works, rail car works, and planing mill, were built along the river. The rapid development of Bridgeport came to an abrupt end, however, with the onset of the financial Panic of 1893. Investors withdrew from the area, and the Bridgeport Land and Improvement Company went out of business.”

      I always like houses that come with a story from history. I looked around a little more and found several additional Queen Anne style homes in the faded town. Among those was this almost certain George F. Barber designed home: https://goo.gl/maps/YBsbdtiSwvw (from Cottage Souvenir No. 2) With the town built on a bluff overlooking the River in some places, it has a very picturesque look to it. I also noticed a number of historic railroad related items around town as well as modern maintained tracks. The town has always had strategic value and was near Civil War battlefields. The nearest large town is Chattanooga Tennessee which is about 34 miles to the east. The state boundaries of Alabama, Tennessee, and Georgia meet just to the northeast of Bridgeport.
      As for these houses, they appear to be well built and designed from a set of matching plans. Not all homes in the row are twin towered and on down the road, there is a mansion grade single family home that probably belonged to one of the Kilpatrick families. The interior photos of this duplex show a relatively intact interior. I would speculate there are opportunities in Bridgeport for serial restorers. Thanks for sharing this fascinating property.

            These distinctive (and very long lasting) metal shingles are still being reproduced today. I recall seeing a house under restoration with shiny new copper shingles in this pattern. The W.F. Norman Company in the town of Nevada, Missiouri, still makes these shingles: https://wfnorman.com/products/roofing/ They have stood the test of time.

      Cheryl, you really outdid yourself with this fine collection. For my tastes, two houses stand out: the Louisiana, Missouri house because of its low price and the home’s excellent details-lots of potential there, IMO. Second, the Macon, Missouri, Queen Anne has a lot going for it. A very large lot of nearly an acre and a half as well as a large outbuilding (Carriage house?) along with the fine interior details complete the package. Not many places around where you can find this much at that price. ($145,000) In the worth a second look category is the Sedalia, Missouri, house; my only difference of opinion there would be the painted millwork. In most nicer homes of the period furniture grade hardwood millwork was the norm. Since I’ve loved restoring (mainly antique) furniture as well as old houses for decades, I appreciate the patina displayed by century old woods. In summary, there’s something in your collection for almost everyone. I did an informal streetview tour of Sedalia and was amazed by the sheer number of old houses remaining there.

      I am fascinated by the 1908 ranch. It’s unique, has lots of land around it, BUT not a single interior pic. I am not well versed in the methods used by real estate agents with respect to presenting their properties. but I would have thought that providing pics of a house inside and out would be a plus. Regardless, I love stone houses and there’s plenty of stone here, certainly. I keep going back to it and visualizing what it looks like inside.

      That one in Lake Charles is hard to read. It’s a sort-of brutalist 1970’s design but decorated in a style which approaches carnival fun house. I think I really like this house but it’s hard to see the structure behind the decor, the mirrors and the optical illusions. One of the most interesting shares in a long while. Thanks, Chris ICU.

      Fort Worth, TX

      Indeed! This house appears to be almost an icon of Mid-Century designs inside and out. I’m having trouble separating the original details from those that might have been added more recently-I think that’s a good thing. Perhaps some of the Murano glass shades may be from a later date (?) but they look right at home here. If that Alexander Calder inspired mobile in the office/studio turned out to be an original by Calder, then selling it would pay for the house and perhaps then some. The colorful kitchen decor is a bit on the gaudy side so I’m having trouble deciding if it was originally that bright or was enhanced later. Looks like there was some kind of theme intended; perhaps this was a reinterpretation of the Italian “Memphis” Group https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memphis_Group designs which were known in the 1980’s for modernist furnishings created in bright colors. If I were a hardcore Mid-Century Modern purist, this would be the kind of house I’d be looking for. It certainly has “the look”.

    I would actually like to see this one get a post. It’s a great old house, + I’ve been in it a few times going back to my childhood. Don and Sally, whose estate is selling, were friends of my parents, and I got to see the house from top to bottom in the rough when they first bought the place in the 80s. The sealed tunnel in the basement which led to the mill was my fave part. Don always heated with wood, (though I’m sure there was a furnace for occasional use). They had at least one stove, and used the fireplaces, right up until they couldn’t anymore I suppose. Looks like Landmarks still has it on their radar since T.H. is a tough market. Would be great to see it go to a lover and collector fine primitives and antiques like Sally was. It looks sad dark and empty.

        That is an understatement. The poor images of some of the interiors shown in the listing do not give one an accurate sense of those spaces at all. The lower hall is barely shown; and the upper not at all. If it gets posted I’ll be happy to drive over there and take a whole bunch of good images inside and out: down as well, as there is a vast, full, deep, brick arched basement level originally used as a secondary store for, and accessible to the mill via a now sealed subterranean brick arched tunnel as I mentioned before.

    Here’s a link to a 5 bedroom, 2 full 2 half bath, Ca. 1900 colonial located in the Julia-Ann Historic District, Parkersburg, WV. House needs some work; I think the original capitals on the front porch columns were removed. The asking price is $160,000.00 (a $10,000.00 price drop). It has been on the market for 2 or 3 years. This house sits at the corner of 12th St. and Juliana St. If you check the street view, at the corner of 12th and Ann streets there are two more houses for sale. I will send links if I can find them.

    I’ll try again and I hope this hasn’t already been posted. I’ve had my eye on this home since I moved to Parkersburg 4 years ago. It has 4sale by owner signs in the yard, which are periodically taken down. They’re back up again so I thought I’d post the link. This is from an old listing on Zillow:

    “This Victorian home is absolutely beautiful and a historical home lovers dream. The majority of the home is all original wood floors, beautiful main staircase as you enter the breathtaking foyer that shows off the beauty of the home right away. The location of this home is perfect. You’re in town and close to all the restaurants and shopping, but, you have the beauty of all the other historical homes on the street and are tucked away into this quiet brick street neighborhood.”

    5 or 6 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 1 half bath, 3 floors of living space, second story porches, and a brick two-car detached garage. The link below offers 68 photos.

          For Sale By Owner= FSBO. Since we are continuing our efforts to sell our Texas Victorian home, please do not go to any extra trouble to obtain the asking price. It is a lovely home in any case and one that I would consider going to take a serious look at. There’s a house in Warren, OH, and in Sistersville, WV of interest as well so Parkersburg would not be any inconvenience for us to go look at this house as well. Years ago, we visited the Fenton Art Glass factory (now closed) in Williamstown as well as Wheeling and some of the other small West Virginia towns going down the Ohio River to Marietta, OH. To me it seemed like a very picturesque part of the country.

            Duh, sometimes I can feel so dumb. Anyway, the house is still for sale and is going to be featured in the Christmas tour with some events held inside the house. The Owner’s phone number is *(admin edit: removed phone)*. I talked to a couple of people yesterday. They told me about the Christmas tour and, when asked about the price, they think the owner is asking $170K but is willing to accept a good offer. Just got off the phone with the owner and the asking price is actually $185K which still is very reasonable for such a large house.

    This just popped up on my notifications on YT.

    It’s an all too abbreviated tour through an American designer’s astounding, top-top-shelf, Louis15th era, chateau. He just bought it, and the video features the house DELICIOUSLY empty. It was built for a very well connected courtier, almost in miniature really, as the scale is VASTLY more human and decidedly less grand and “impressive” than many other chateau’s of the period. It’s so rad. You WILL be gasping, oooohing, and aaahhhing at the architecture and the priceless woodcarvings. None of it is plaster! Astounding. Needs SOME paint removal, so good it’s going to $$$ Mr. designer with the means to get it done. It will be I’m sure beyond stunning when he’s finished. Sigh…

    From the plucky city of Dayton, Ohio is this nice transitional house from betweem 1900 and 1910: https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/915-W-Grand-Ave-Dayton-OH-45402/2091220453_zpid/?fullpage=true Huge house for the modest $67,900 price. The caveat is that this is a neighborhood still improving and I think longer term a rising house price appreciation could make this a good investment. Some of the interior details here are outstanding like the mantel with the carved motto above the hearth. This area is still somewhere between the urban pioneering phase and gentrified but with the City investing in improvements to the infrastructure the trend looks positive. Might be worth checking out for someone thinking longer term. Streetview is available on the listing page. I’d like to hear from some locals who know this area well as to what they envision in the years ahead.

      Looking through the SOLD listings in the area, 915 shows:
      3/5/2018 Sold $31,000
      So it looks like a flip.

      If 915 W Grand isn’t large enough, there’s this foreclosure? a block up the street at 1000 W Grand. Zillow shows it as a foreclosure, but the description is all about rental … sad.
      Streetview (2016) shows window openings (no sashes extant) boarded up from the inside.

      https://www.zillow.com/homes/for_sale/1000-W-Grand-Ave-Dayton,-OH,-45402_rb/

      Then there is 815 W Grand that sold for $9500.00 (hundred, not thousand).
      Porte cochere, first story stone, original cedar shingles on 2nd story.
      I can imagine what the interior is like.

      Even spending $200k to move one of these seems viable. Otherwise, I’m not optimistic.

        Steve, everything you mentioned may be the outcome at present but I feel this neighborhood is of too high of an architectural quality to be allowed to decline into oblivion. The troubled Daytonview neighborhood nearby may still be a decade or two away from a renaissance but I feel this area around Grand Avenue may be closer to improving in the near future. The main culprit (as it is in many faded historic neighborhoods across the country is the prevalence of low end multi-family rentals. A strong neighborhood homeowners association could impose restrictions on the number and types of rental uses for historic homes. What is needed here more than anything else is direct investment and a solid urban pioneering movement. Faded neighborhoods can be brought back but they require people not afraid to put in some sweat equity while making their property stand out in a positive way. Dayton’s St. Anne’s Hill neighborhood was neglected and forgotten for many years but property values have increased. The residents show a sense of pride and welcome newcomers who want to better their lives and their surroundings. There’s no reason the same could not be repeated here. As for moving any of the houses, that is counter-productive in a neighborhood that retains much of its residential context as the more gaps added between houses the more difficult it is to recreate the original neighborhood character. In-fill housing here is unlikely at least in the short term mainly because of the continuing low property values. The South Fountain Street Historic District in Springfield to the north of Dayton is a good example of an improving historic neighborhood. It still has a ways to go but is headed in the right direction. Provided the national economy stays healthy, I’m optimistic for things to get better along Grand Avenue.

        Hyrum seems to be a very low density town surrounded by majestic mountains. Although in streetview https://goo.gl/maps/EPhX27CG6c22 I saw a number of older period homes, this particular Queen Anne style home appears the have always been the grandest home in town and it likely remains so today. The stark white in the public rooms downstairs are different than what the original decor must have been with ornate wallpapers and furnishings from the period. Thanks for sharing, Ronnie.

    1927. Although she needs a good bit of TLC, the original features are absolutely charming. This was a fine home. I especially like the floor/wall tile in the pale green bathroom. The exterior is also nice (sans that after-thought sunroom…I would remove that and try to repair the stucco). Seems like a mix of Tudor/Spanish. $400K
