    Chestatee, GA

    Today’s old images are two separate homes but of the same design by William Radford. Here are examples in Tahlequah, OK, in Mingus, TX and another in Lincolnton, NC (just examples, not of the homes pictured above.) Rachel from Oklahoma Houses by Mail has the design and floorplan here.

    The first home pictured, do not know the location. The second home pictured is in Henning, TN and it’s either this poor home or this one although both looked like it had slight changes as in the enclosed porch and window changes. Perhaps someone can figure it out by the “M.A.” abbreviation.

    Thanks to Keith S. for today’s book recommendation. This book digs deep into American Greek Revival’s. A warning, this isn’t a coffee table book and doesn’t have as many photographs as I wished but the homes shown are gorgeous and even includes a few featured on OHD like the magnificent Waverly. It does get a bit deep about the politics of the day that birthed the Greek Revival movement but if you want the full history this is a book that should be on your shelf. Amazon does not have a peek inside option but the table of contents are: The Political Economy of the Greek Revival, A Case Study: The Forest and Milford, Reviving Greece, A Second Case Study: The Interior, The Decline of the Greek Revival, A Hasty History of the Later Renaissance. Don’t the Amazon prices scare you off, I scored mine for a whole $7 that included shipping.

    PS, I intended to post more this week and start including multiple real estate sites each week for searches but I am so burned out on work, I’ve barely touched OHDO even. I will do nothing but work until I’ve got nothing left and then crash, this is the crash part. Probably after the new year I’ll be back at it. 🙂

    I’m really tempted to look at this 1773 colonial, but I suspect that given the price history it must have significant issues. How low can you go? – only 79K in Barre, MA for what is said to be one of the oldest homes there.

    https://www.trulia.com/p/ma/barre/86-west-st-barre-ma-01005–2000119131

    Looked tempting when it was at 150K earlier this year.

    Story from NPR, about the 1936 Largent House, designed by architect Richard Neutra, who helped define the nascent modernist movement. Last fall, workers demolished it as part of the current owner’s plan for a major renovation. San Francisco is asking the owner to rebuild it. https://www.npr.org/2018/12/19/677929775/san-francisco-orders-man-to-rebuild-his-historic-home-after-it-was-demolished?sc=tw

      Opens a lot of issues. When is a house too far gone to be “historic”? Is recreating preservation?Where do property rights and government meet? We would all like to preserve a house. Would you be less likely to buy a true fixer upper that needed partial demo? Food for thought.

      • Marc says: 171 comments

        The house itself is one aspect of historic preservation; the streetscape it contributes to is another. Rebuilding a historic house to its original appearance can preserve the streetscape even if the new interior is nothing like the old. But arguably, this modern house damaged the victorian streetscape when it was built. Very generally, property rights and government meet under the 5th amendment takings clause. If the government regulates your property enough to limit your use of the property, it could be considered a partial or complete taking, and the government must compensate you even though you still own the property. Regulations can come in many flavors, including zoning, land use designations, or conditions attached to permits.

      Obviously beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The buyer of the property must have felt the land more important than the house. He didn’t understand or appreciate its unique quality.

      If I had the money I’d buy it and ask him to continue living there, love the picture where he opens the window and takes off his glasses.

      I really dislike “real estate tourists” and it’s one reason I tell people not to bother the agent when they only want to look at the home and not in a position to buy (and the reason I do not schedule my own tours of local homes.) Not only does it waste the agents time but giving hope to the owner, it’s not respectful at all.

    1897 Pittsburgh, PA $650,000 Richardsonian influenced?

    Not quite sure how to describe the style, the stonework sort of reminds me of Richardsonian Romanesque. On streetview with a close-up look the detail on the top of the porch supports looks similar to Louis Sullivan type work. I would rely on people with better knowledge to describe the house. Fyi–I this historic neighborhood has a wonderful Christmas home tour every year-

      I would consider this Pittsburgh home to be in the Romanesque style. H.H. Richardson died at the peak of his career from kidney failure in 1886 with legions of fans and architect followers. By 1897, over a decade after his passing, the very distinctive Romanesque examples from the 1870’s and 1880’s had been stylistically diluted as seen here. Nice house, although it seems a bit pricey but I believe its in a very desireable neighborhood. Thanks for sharing.

      I really like the 1920 Colonial Revival in Worcester, MA, and wish it had more pics. Love the arches, the woodwork in general, & its built-ins. And if the original brkfst nook table isn’t being stored in the cellar, attic, or garage, I’d have one custom-made based on ones from that time period & the in situ benches.

I’ve never seen anything like the built in server in the dining room and the barrel vaulted ceiling in the living room is incredible.

        1889 Eastlake Cottage
        Fort Worth, TX

        This house has been on and off the market for a number of years. I seem to recall in a previous listing that there were some interior photos showing many intact original details inside. I think the 1860 date is slightly too early but the French Second Empire style gained popularity on the eastern seaboard first (1850’s) before it spread westward. As noted, the over $14,000 in taxes is likely a formidable obstacle to prospective buyers who will also be facing many thousands of dollars in repairs and updates. Perhaps the biggest drawback, at least from what I can see in streetview, is the surrounding neighborhood which looks sketchy. High property tax states like Connecticut and New Jersey (NJ is ranked no. 1 as the highest taxes state) create difficult conditions for saving marginal old houses. Architectural salvage from this region is already plentiful and there’s little cause for optimism in the coming years ahead. Yet, architecturally, this is a landmark quality home and it truly deserves to be saved. The surrounding neighborhood still retains a strong residential context but without significant investment I don’t see much of a future for this deserving to be saved Second Empire home. Thanks for sharing this highly endangered house.

        • CharlesB says: 374 comments

          The house is in a LOCAL historic district (in addition to being on the National Register), which in CT means that any changes to the portions of the exterior visible from a public right-of-way must receive a Certificate of Appropriateness from the Historic District Commission. No one is going to tear this house down for architectural salvage! Also, a $14,000 tax bill might seem an outrage to much of the country, but within an hour of New York City, where a modest ranch house or cape cod pays $10,000 or more, it is considered more than reasonable for a 7500 sf mansion. And although the neighborhood may appear ‘sketchy’ in streetview, it is undergoing considerable improvement, with at least a dozen of the 35 houses facing Washington Park having had quality restorations in recent years. You are correct about the date in the listing–construction occurred in 1868-69, and readers of the local newspaper were updated frequently as the house progressed to completion. Lastly, I have been on the inside, and the place was kept in pristine original condition by the man who owned it for more than a half-century. I hope it falls into the hands of someone who appreciates its extraordinary qualities.

      Phenomenal house! Unusual as well to find that it is in Iowa rather than southern California or Florida where the Spanish/Mission Revival style was very popular around the end of the first decade of the 20th century. For at least a decade after 1900, architectural eclecticism allowed for a variety of styles and experimental designs as architects sought to find stylistic replacements to replace those from the earlier Victorian era. This house has not only Spanish influences (on the exterior) but Classical Revival, as well as a few Arts & Crafts elements mixed in. The crowning touch is the large stained glass skylight. Although it and details like pocket doors are holdovers from the Victorian era, the eclectic mix appears to blend in well. For the square footage and fine art glass details, the house seems reasonably priced. One thing is for sure…no one else would have a house like this one even if the design came from a published (plan book) source. Thanks for sharing this unusual home.

    I haven’t commented in a while but had to share since I knew people on this forum would understand. There is an old house downtown, that I drive by every single day I leave work, that’s been boarded up for at least two years. I always dream of restoring it. It’s so cheery with its adorable front porch, all painted teal, yellow and white. Today, in its place was an empty lot and a bull dozer. :’(

    Here is an overseas house from my little Caribbean island of Grenada. Your chance to own an old plantation home, the historic Great House on the Dunfermline Estate. The estate was founded in 1817 by Scotsman James Seton, but the house was not built until later as he was an absentee owner. It was originally a sugar cane plantation with 220 slaves and its own rum distillery. The current acreage is planted in cocoa and nutmeg. The last owner of the estate was Sir Leo de Gale who was the last Royal Governor of the British Colony of Grenada before they gained Independence. The Great House has been abandoned since 1974. The 2004 hurricane took off the roof over the Living Room/Dining Room/Kitchen wing. The bedroom wing is still covered.

    Although of recent vintage, I love the period sympathetic high end kitchen in the Kasson, MN house. Those who respect the history of an old house should care enough so when they’re updating their kitchen, the choices of materials and details will blend in well with the period decor of the house yet are functionally modern.

    I know 1.6M is a lot of money, but this is a lovely Tudor on acreage in CT. So, I’m wondering what’s wrong with this? Location? Taxes? This seems like such a deal on a very nice home. https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/370-Tucker-Hill-Rd_Middlebury_CT_06762_M44442-98497

      Prices in CT have been going down because of the outrageous taxes. This is also just a bit out of range for someone to commute to NYC for work. If it was closer it would be more.

    I live near there Chris. The house has been on and off the market for a number of years. It’s a very nice area, but it started off at 2.3 million which is a lot of money for the area. I think at this price it has a fair shot at selling. The taxes are 23k a year, and the amount needed to maintain such a property is rather pricey.

    Elvis and Priscilla’s Palm Springs honeymoon house. Looks like this house has been for sale for a while with some price drops and current marketing efforts. Not sure if it has been on here yet or not, apologies if so. But looks like a very cool original MCM house in very good shape with a current price that doesn’t seem too bad. Sounds like it “could use a bit of updating”, which really means it is hopefully still very original and the next owner keeps it that way. It would be a shame to see it updated. If I were to buy it, I’d want it to be exactly the way it was when Elvis and Priscilla were there. To me, if it gets updated, a big part of that history gets erased.

    This 1789 home in Chatham, VA is represented by Elle Will ewilk.svp@gmail.com
    Excerpt from Old Virginia Houses by Emiee Ferguson Farrar and Emilee Hines, 1974:
    “Oakland is unusually large and graceful for a house build prior to 1800. Of two-story framed construction, with beaded clapboards it has steep pitched roofline bracketed by 4 chimneys. Each of its two front doors is topped by a glass fan light, and opens into a spacious reception room rather than a hallway. From one reception room a stairway leads to the rooms above”.
    In the 18th century a portico with 4 columns was added. In the 20th Century, a two-story wing and additional chimney was added.

    During the past 45 years the Grisales family replaced the roof entirely with metal, replaced the front columns with fiberglass, replaced the oil heating with central heat and air; added a generator, a 20’x40’ heated pool, and maintained the beautiful landscape. Using the land only for the family garden, the land has not seen pesticides for over 30 years. The original well is drilled into an artesian aquifer and produces the most delicious water. There are pastures for livestock, road frontage for business purposes, and a lovely formal garden with the original family historical markers near the guest cottage.

    A few miles north, the Historical town of Chatham, VA is home to Hargrave Military Academy est 1909 and Chatham Hall est 1894. These Private schools attract international students from grades 9-12. In nearby Danville Virginia, Averett University est 1859, enrolls 850 students. It offers liberal arts degrees an Equestrian program, and adult educational opportunities.

    The property is zoned Ag1. The road frontage and proximity to commercial properties add value to this location as a destination for agri-businesses like berry farm, brewery, distillery, specialty livestock, roadside attraction or hobby farm.

    Christianity has been in America for much longer than 200 years before the construction of this house as a lot of the early settlers from Britain where fleeing persecution as “protesters” against the established religion and many came here to practice religion in their own way. Of course the Spanish who were Catholic had come in the 15th century, but they were in the south. This “Christian” church was evidently one of the many offshoot religions that America has been so famous for the world over.

    This 1903 Colonial in Framingham, MA is back on the market at 649.9k. It’s on a gorgeous piece of land on a beautiful street. My friend lives in the converted carriage house across the driveway so I admire it often. There was a single woman living in it and now it’s empty. Sad watching it decline further. I hope someone can bring this lovely lady back to her old splendor.

    Happy New Year, all!

    Here’s a couple of interesting ones. First is a house in Riverside, just outside of Chicago. This apparently was a ‘regular’ house from 1908, but remodeled early on to be what you see here – complete with a rathskeller! $1.19m. The original owner was a real estate mogul in the area (there’s a public school named after him). The current owner bought it in foreclosure and made a few changes.

    Here’s the listing before renovations:
    https://www.estately.com/listings/info/273-maplewood-road

    Here’s an interesting one – a former public bathhouse in Chicago (before indoor plumbing was a thing). This is one of just four remaining in the city. Converted to living space, it still has some of the original details left. Built in 1905, $975k.

    1889 Eastlake Cottage
    Fort Worth, TX

    From the Indiana town of LaGrange is this ornate Queen Anne style house c. 1890 and available for $124,900: https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/402-W-Spring-St-Lagrange-IN-46761/85512320_zpid/?fullpage=true It features four bedrooms, two baths and has 2,472 sq. feet inside. LaGrange, population about 2,700, is 30.5 miles east from Elkhart, Indiana, and near the Indiana/Michigan border in the north central part of the state. It needs some work but the ornate exterior is well preserved while the interior will need some TLC to bring it back. It is, however, apparently habitable at present. The lavish scroll-sawn “Gingerbread” on the porch as well as the colored glass margined Queen Anne windows all but scream “Victorian”. Such ornate houses are scarce in the bigger cities but in smaller towns they can occasionally be found. I think this distinctive design may be from a published plan source but I can’t connect it with a specific architect.

      Common misconception about showboats is that they were steamboats. This probably comes from the eponymous movie Showboat, which showed them having a traditional paddle wheel. But showboats were built on engineless barges and required another boat to move them around. Whoever buys this would need a towboat for any form of locomotion. Would be a fascinating way to live though.

    Sure hope all of you OHD’ers who have good taste have already, (or like me at the last minute when I, thank God, have some time to save them), SAVED your faves before they go POOF on the site tomorrow. I’m just opening a page of OHD faves at a time; opening each house at a time; then right clicking to open menu; then choosing open link in new tab for each house on the page. After I / you have them all in separate links, go through them one at a time saving each link to a new file you create on your desktop. Each time you do that, for each page, then just X out of the page and the next one will load. Repeat. 🙂 Can’t imagine losing them again; (all this time). Might do something fun with them later. I have some ideas.

    “Carter Hall” 1830 Federal near Stephens City, VA.
    $390K with 3.65 acres
    $655K with 56 acres
    Stephens City is located in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, between Woodstock and Winchester, right on I-81. A beautiful area rich in history. Easy trip to DC via I-66. This house needs work, but is very livable now in that it has a modern addition with a very nice kitchen, baths and garage. I’d be all over this one if I wasn’t in my mid 60’s.
    Remove the wallpaper, paint inside appropriately, do the floors, paint the exterior shutters black and it would be cosmetically awesome in short order. Heat/a/c, inspect the roof – the usual. Sorry for rambling here, but 20 years ago I restored a very similar circa 1850 brick Virginia house that was in MUCH worse shape than this one. I think there is some upside to this one $ wise depending on how much work you can do properly yourself. Great setting and location. I have no connection to this house or the seller.

    I’ve never posted a house before, so I hope I’m doing this correctly.
    1900 farmhouse, great sink in kitchen and wonderful pantry cabinets. I love the checkerboard linoleum in kitchen. Second kitchen (in basement?) is interesting too.

    Nothing like a 440% price increase since last sale in 2016 according to Zillow. Nothing new has been done to the house (what COULD be done??). Popped back up on the market today at $3.3 million.

      1901 Folk Victorian
      Chestatee, GA

      They almost look like the same photos from 2016, it looks that unchanged. I love looking at such decorated homes but it would feel overwhelming to live in one. When could I ever dress in sloppy pajamas in such a setting? 🙂

        Anecdotal information I’ve received (from a Seattle realtor and personal friend) indicates the white hot West Coast housing market is beginning to cool off somewhat. First, foreign investors are not competing with local buyers as much as in the past. With interest rates higher, and possible signs of a recession on the horizon, that too is having a cooling effect on the market. Instead of multiple offers some properties are receiving only one and in some cases price reductions are appearing. I’ll hasten to add that the statements I’ve made are of a general nature and I have no idea as to whether the pricing here is below, at, or above the local market. In any case, this is an exquisite Queen Anne Victorian and regardless of price, it will always be so.

      Stunningly beautiful home. With that much square footage, the owner(s) would need to have someone to regularly maintain the house. It does have a bit of a (B&B) commercial feel but with a few changes could look more like a single family residence. This is a mansion among mansions and priced below the “Zestimate” which is rare on high end listings. Thanks for sharing.

    1901. Grandma’s house is a little scruffy, but SOOO much potential! Love the built-in cabinets in the kitchen and that little room off the kitchen ( doesn’t look like a butler’s pantry but may have been).
    And if that formica table out on the back porch stays… $199K

    From Munster, Indiana, comes this almost mint 1957 Mid-century Modern on the market for $309,900: https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/8514-Crestwood-Ave-Munster-IN-46321/94442570_zpid/?fullpage=true As mid-century homes go, this one certainly is a looker. It is also only about 26 miles from downtown Chicago near the suburb of Hammond, IN.

    From Fort Wayne, Indiana, is this c. 1880 Victorian in the throes of rehab priced at $30K: https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/8514-Crestwood-Ave-Munster-IN-46321/94442570_zpid/?fullpage=true Looks like it could be restored into a single family. With four bedrooms, two baths, it would be fine for a family home although the seller is pitching it for a rentals unit. The house deserves a better fate than that, IMO.
