    Written on the back of the old house photo, “Miss Alice Lancaster, Little Falls, Minn.” and “J.M. Hamilton, Photographer, Monmouth, Ill.” I don’t know if this was Miss Alice’s home or just one she fancied, she sent the postcard to herself.

    Today’s book recommendation is not a coffee table book although there are black/white illustrations and photographs toward the back of the book. Amazon has the “Look Inside” feature giving you a peek, click the photo or title above. This book was originally Mr. Scully’s doctoral dissertation and reads like one but it does give insight into the architectural style of Shingle and Stick, those that love that period may enjoy this one.

    I hate bringing this up but I’m becoming a bit stricter on comments. Most owners don’t ask for their homes to be critiqued when they go to sell it and that’s what we do here, we talk about their home. As long as you aren’t a dick about it (sorry, I’m in that mood this morning), saying you’d change wallpaper is not something to worry about if you do it in a way that you don’t sound condescending. I just deleted a comment about white wood work and the guy was a bit of a dick about it, just reminded me I’ve been meaning to say I’m getting more restrictive especially on white paint shaming. Pretend you are saying it to their face, are you really going to say “I hate it that you’ve painted your wood…I hate your wallpaper…”? It’s fine to say you’d strip the wood but don’t be rude about it. Honestly it’s more new people that don’t understand comments aren’t a free-for-all, 98% of you have common sense not to be a jerk and that is appreciated. I don’t have anywhere else to say this, comments seem to be well read in the link exchange so here it is. The comment policy is always linked below the comment box. I don’t expect people to memorize it, the rules are there for a good reason and not because I just felt like being a dictator. So there, most of you can ignore this bit and the ones that aren’t nice probably won’t read or care anyway…in any case I needed to say it.

      Thanks for sharing the period photo of a late version of the Gothic Revival style. Notice the small “planter” balcony in front of the ground floor side window. I’d almost have to call this a Carpenter Gothic house because of some of its informal details but it is architecturally sophisticated enough to have probably been constructed from an architect’s plans. Wish we could see what the inside looked like but quite likely it was long ago demolished.
      As for being sensitive about the tone of the reader comments, I readily understand and so should most of Old House Dreams’ readers. The clear finished vs. white painted argument is impossible to resolve because different people have different tastes. Paint can in most cases be removed so it is not a permanent alteration like taking out walls or removing ornamental features. Thanks for sharing this wonderful blog about old houses; it sometimes warms the heart on a cold gloomy day to see the fresh posts.

      Hear, hear. I look at choices I differ with as if: ” Is it better house is still here, being lived in (and one hopes, loved), or gone? Better painted woodwork, or it all stripped out in favor of 1 1/4″ trim stuff and hollow core doors? Better carpet over hardwood than ceramic tile.” Covered over original finishes and materials can be buried treasure for a future restorer. I somehow never hear calls for return to 60W glass fuses and knob and tube wiring–I presume it’s decorating choices that makes looky-lous blood boil

      • AvatarKaren says: 577 comments

        Hey. You can strip woodwork yourself, and you can change paint or wallpaper. You have to look past that kind of thing, to see how a house is laid out, the beauty of hearths, the grace of anold bannister, and at useful updates like AC, and what kind of safety concerns a house might present, like wiring problems.

      Understood Kelly. But honestly, even though I was not the white paint trim shamer this time, I am so passionate about preservation, and how works of art are obliterated with paint, I probably would say the same thing directly to the home sellers. Just saying 😉

    Lovely English heritage manor in the Devon countryside. Asking $4,000,000. Not wild about the modern restoration, though much historic fabric is still intact. Love the exterior and setting. It appears maybe the stables, home farm and gate lodge have been parcelled off to other ventures.

    1930’s Tudor style two storey home in the Regent suburb of Whangarei. Glossy oak panelling, ornate plaster ceilings and cornices, mullioned windows and great views of the Hatea River and Mt. Parihaka. It is for Auction and the valuation is $NZD675,000.

    Beautifully maintained 1930’s weatherboard cottage in the Kensington suburb of Whangarei.Lots of casement windows, stained glass feature windows, original fireplace and a flat section with pretty gardens. To me it has a kind of English cottage look to it. It is for Auction and has a valuation of $NZD450,000.

    I had to include this Herne Bay, Auckland home because it is so unique. It is very much like the Victorian terrace houses you see in inner city Sydney, Australia and I have never seen a home like this in New Zealand. I love the interior colours and decor too. It is for Auction and as Herne Bay is a premier suburb the valuation is $NZD2,675,000.

    I love this 1920’s farm house in Wainui, north of Auckland.It has a lot of character and style(that wallpaper in one of the bedrooms!) acreage and a modern cottage on site which you could use as an Air BnB or rent out long term to help pay the mortgage. It is for sale at $1,395,000.

      I went to school in Paxton, so used to go by that house a lot. As I recall, in those days the owners followed the old New England custom of painting the facade white, and using a less expensive color on the rest of the house.

    The Kentucky Federal is so much bigger than the front facade suggests. The aerial views show the additions. Guessing the ornate front porch roof is a later addition as well. I love the toile wallpaper in the foyer. I like that the realtor took a lot of shots to show the rooms from different angles. That rustic kitchen was really interesting. And was that a peacock in the backyard?

      Both of those are impressive but that first one is a great big ol’ barn of a place! Terrific for raising a big family and having a wonderful garden and a few chickens. And if it needs a little work, at that price you can get a whole lotta bang for your buck. Especially with that stove and soapstone sinks. Not to mention the built in icebox!

    Today I’m sharing a book: “Life at the Dakota: New York’s Most Unusual Address” by Stephen Birmingham. I’m reading on my tablet through Amazon but it may be purchased by googling the book itself. The reason I mention on this site is it chronicles the life of an old building: the gossip, heartbreak, financials, history, restoration, remodeling and all the real life drama that takes place over the years. It shows a piece of property is never an easy historical documentation because of all the lives it touches and each life and era has different motives, loves, talents, fashion and history.

        Agreed, some architectural interest remains with this house. The surrounding neighborhood doesn’t look too bad either although there is a gap between it and the next house where another house once stood. (streetview: https://goo.gl/maps/z3f2e6ddcJC2 ) One can also observe the overall house condition and the roof is showing some signs of deterioration. A look around the general area shows a nice collection of late 19th and early 20th century homes. Some homes around the corner on Liberty Street/U.S. 322 going towards downtown are mansion grade.
        Franklin and surrounding Venango County early Oil Boom towns (Titusville, Oil City, and the ghost town of Pithole City) played a vital role in the development of Petroleum production in the U.S. For a few decades following the mid-19th Oil boom an immense amount of oil wealth made the region prosperous. That period of prosperity is reflected in some of the fine homes still standing in Franklin and the surrounding towns. Today the region is far past the boom days but the silver lining is that this economic decline has helped preserve many of the period homes due to benign neglect. Provided the next owners have sustainable income resources, I think with a modest investment this house could be appealing again but much depends on the interior condition as well as the remaining period details inside. Western Pennsylvania is a wonderful region for affordable historic homes. For those with a personal interest in the history of the region, I found an 1890 History of Venango County that goes into details about Franklin: (Internet Archive-free read and download) https://archive.org/details/historyofvenango00bell/page/n3 Thanks for sharing, Ed.

    The listing date says 1935…I am thinking this is a good bit older.

    SO much potential in this center hall southern charmer. Pecan and Magnolia trees, big mantles, and an humongous 25′ hall! Could be fixed up nicely. $125K

      1889 Eastlake Cottage
      Fort Worth, TX

      I agree with the earlier date. A couple of the mantels are from the c. 1910 era although the rooflines have transitioned from the older hipped or pyramidal form to the later Bungalow/Craftsman form. Gone are all of the wide door trim moldings around doors and windows from earlier years so this house may date even a few years later from around 1915 but unless the mantels were salvaged or reused from another structure, 1935 seems unlikely.

    Classic Savannah town home. If you’re an old home lover then you need to make a pilgrimage to Savannah at least once. It’s a beautiful walkable city. This one was, until reecently, the home of Alan Raskin Antiques and in a vintage unadulterated condition. No interior pics, but plenty of shots if you do a google search . 5.5 million and not sure who should afford this fixer upper but I’d sure love to see it.

    1875 Limestone house
    Loire Valley, France,

    1670 Central chimney cape, Cape Girardeau, MO ($1,590,000): https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/120-Fox-Run-Ln-Cape-Girardeau-MO-63701/121194256_zpid/?fullpage=true . I know the price is rocket high but it’s been kept more or less as it must have been (it looks old inside), and I love how they hid the modern SS kitchen appliances behind old cupboards doors. Behive oven fireplaces, wide wood plank floors, raised pannels on the walls,etc., awesome house from the early years of America

    A round MCM in Gladwater TX for 176K – much original decor/baths. I would have loved to know the original owners – they must have had fun decorating as the wallpapers are wonderful.

      That Gladewater TX house is quite a time capsule! The rounded exterior is unusual as well.

    1890. Fantastic towered beauty. Incredible milwork, stunning staircase.
    This surely must have been built for one of Wichita’s most esteemed residents. $290K

      Says “Noble House Inn” in one of the pictures. Sure looks like a B&B.

    1936. Whoaaaa. This is pretty funky, but I like it! Gigantic colorful bathrooms and curved rooms. Just plain fun. Do you think that front facade is original? I’m leaning towards no… $295K

      You’re right. The house is in the Azalea Residential Historic District but specifically noted as Non-Contributing because of exterior alterations made around 1985. I’d guess it was stucco originally instead of the siding, and the mansard roof doesn’t look right either. It would be interesting to see an old photo.

    Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

    Maybe the best Old House holiday, all about family and tradition – religion, gifts, and endless shopping not required.

    My version: fresh turkey or goose, dressing, biscuits and gravy, potatoes and home-grown veggies (turnips optional), apple and pumpkin pies. Warm fireplace, happy children, good whiskey and conversation, no politics.
