    A walk around the neighborhood shows that this house is well under valued. Where the ceiling has been opened up by the stairs on the first floor could be a plumbing problem. It probably wouldn’t take a substantial restoration investment but hopefully its out of the reach of a flipper or potential rental investment. It looks like there was some sanding done on the block paneling and the stairs. Bathrooms and the kitchen will surely need attention. Even if an additional investment of a 100K plus above the purchase price, it would be in line with the surrounding area.

    I remember our first visit to St. Joseph over the New Year’s holiday from 2000 to 2001 and my amazement at seeing intact blocks and blocks of late 19th century homes like this one. Some have been lost in the years since that initial visit but enough remain to make St. Joseph an open air Victorian era architectural museum. Enough period details remain in this house to keep it interesting. I suspect there were originally some art glass windows where clear panes are now in place. But things like that can be replicated or replaced to finish out the house to period perfection. St. Joseph is only about 25 miles north of downtown Kansas City so it is well within commuting distance for work or shopping. The town has several “old house clubs” in different neighborhoods which have regular meetings and potluck suppers in members’ homes so renovators and restorers can come together to commiserate about the trials and tribulations of old house stewardship. In summary, I think this house has potential.

      I live in Kansas City, and St. Joseph is actually 55 miles from downtown KC. There are tons of gorgeous Victorian houses there, but the historic area is quite depressed, unfortunately.

        Mark, I stand corrected. The St. Joe company I used to work for had offices in KC and somehow I picked up the notion of it being about half the actual distance. I’ll check the atlas next time. Thanks.

        Gweneth I am so glad you posted a comment as I hope to be your neighbor soon. As soon as we sell our home in Scott City Mo we are relocating to St Joseph, my husband has been working there since October 2018. Unfortunately I believe I’ve missed out on buying the Queen Anne at 307 S 9th St. so I’m looking daily and if you perhaps know of a property that may not actually be listed anywhere I would appreciate any help, advice, contacts, anything at all.

      John, you are correct about Saint Joseph being an architectural gold mine. We own the brick Queen Anne that is 2 doors up from this house. Moved from Fort Worth 2 years ago and have never looked back. We love our old home and neighborhood. My husband is the vice president of the Museum Hill Historic Neighborhood Association, which is where this home is located. We are also members of The Old House Club in Saint Joseph. There has been significant revitalization of the old downtown area with many, many new businesses and restaurants moving in. We have a fantastic view of the city from the “hill” and the Missouri riverfront is just blocks away. This home is indeed located in an area that is actively being restored. The beautiful Wyeth Tootle Mansion Museum is down the street from us. Well worth a visit as are all the many museums that we have to offer. Yes, it is a slow process to restore a neighborhood like this to its full glory but we are well on our way. This home is priced to sell and you can’t go wrong with the neighbors you would have here. We are all like minded in restoring our neighborhood.
