    This is not usually my preferred style of home but this is so deliciously simple and un-remuddled. I just love it!

    I lived in Chaplin for 31+ years and can say it’s a nice, rural area to live in. It’s been several years since I was in this home and it doesn’t appear as anything as changed. The home is located just up the road from the Historical District. I hope it’s purchased by someone who’ll treasure it and enjoy the beautiful views!

    I see a bricked/closed in fireplace in a bedroom – do any of you with more building knowledge than I know if this can be undone to make a fireplace functional again? Thanks

      It is not uncommon to find mantles in mid-19th century houses purpose built to have a stove placed before them with no firebox behind, merely a means for a stovepipe to safely vent out through the masonry. This may be such an example. One can recognize these mantles at salvage dealers because they either will still retain their baseboard moulding that runs along the entire bottom of the mantle, or as is more likely the case, exhibit unpainted miters as evidence of the now missing baseboard that once spanned the distance between the pilasters.

      A neighbor of mine disliked not having a wood burning fireplace in the parlor of his modest farmhouse and removed just such a mantle, replacing it with a hideous veneered stone example from a big box store and building a new chimney. I purchased his house’s original mantle for a few dollars (luckily he kept the baseboard fragment with it) at his yard sale. I have been storing it for years with the intention of returning it to that house if I should live long enough to see a change of ownership.

      Hi, I’m a firm believer that if you have enough money yes it can be done but before you do that you need to make sure that chimney is right and the liner is in and everything inside is re-pointed.

      It may be a little time-consuming but personally for me …I think it would be worth it!
