    Exceptionally lovely stained glass windows. Now to get those colors on the outside of house. Sweet front porch. (Storm door and carpeting–gone.)

    Oh, and Stanton is famous for being the hometown of Mrs. Olson, in the OLD Folger’s coffee commercials. Check out the water tower!

      I think it’s a product of growing up in the 70’s when all the old houses in my midwestern town were pretty much a uniform white, but I can’t help but like it. I know it’s not correct but it still appeals to me. Nostalgia I suppose.

        Your comment brought me back to the time I lived in northern Illinois and repaired (mostly) old houses M-F and drove around on weekends looking at them, Iowa and Wisconsin too. As you say, they were generally white, with a few painted with color, and only rare multi-color paint jobs.
        I’m usually in the color camp but I love an old white house gleaming in the sunlight with its details sharply defined by shadows, like in the photos here. It’s more than nostalgia – there’s purity and clarity there!

    What !?!?! “room” is #39 supposed to be? Is that the basement? The attic? Confusing. I love the house, though. Sincerely! Wonder if I can find a job in that area…

      Looks like foam insulation on the underside of the roof, seen in an upstairs closet.

      Most likely an attic eave storage area with spray foam insulation.

    5 bdrm. 1 bath in 1663 sq. ft. Wow!
    Cute place, love the porch. Three houses down from the cemetery. Appears to have adequate insulation….can’t beat the price!

      Right – those beds must be tiny. Convert two of them to baths then you’ve got a 3 and 3 and maintain the integrity of the exterior.

    Wouldn’t change a thing except the blue paint and green carpet. Oh and the storm door. Very, very nice house and that price!
