    I don’t know if the mantels that were removed were original but if so I hope they hurt their back tearing them out.

    According to the NRHP listing, Brook Cartledge built this fine late Victorian house around 1898. I’ll pretend the mantels were carefully removed and are being painstakingly refinished to their original condition prior to being returned to their proper place here.

    Mantles or not 135K? This looks like the bargain of the century. This house is BEAUTIFUL!

      Whenever I see a doable house, such as this one, I always check out the data records on the town. Location, crime, job availability? The houses seem too good to be true, at times. I love the curved walls and I would be perfectly content in a house like this although I would start all over on the kitchen. Everyone’s taste is different.

    I love seeing a house empty of distracting furnishings. What a great house and property. I would probably even keep the 80’s kitchen.

    Wow! This is a great home! I absolutely love that staircase! I would gut the kitchen and put in one more suitable for the year of the house. I hate new kitchens in old houses!

    It’s a lovely house, and I agree with Kelly that the FP should never have been removed.

    A pet peeve of mine, however, is people who should know better- like RE agents listing southern houses- putting the word ‘of’ in the middle of ‘heart pine’, where it’s never supposed to go, and which inaccuracy is in this case immensely compounded by then calling it ‘hardwoods’, which it flatly… isn’t.

    I realize that’s a strong reaction to a four-word snippet in an otherwise fine description, but there it is.

    This is a very interesting house. The enclosed bottom half of the staircase spills onto the floor while the open upper half leads to something rather more than a landing – remarkable design. The large transition areas put me somewhat in mind of Edwin Luytens’ work. I would never see the attic – I can’t get above six feet on a ladder without freezing up. An in-sync kitchen redo would help, as would replaced/replica mantles. What a place!

    Nice place and looks like a very peaceful looking property. I hope those mantles are stored away for new owners but doubt that since the tub and bathroom mirrors seem to have disappeared. If they were sold to squeeze out some extra cash than its disgusting and wonder what else was ripped out. I would definetly check wires and pipes! If they had left all things alone I’m sure the house would have left any future buyer willing to pay more for a well kept and seemingly loved home.

    Residential purchase for $210,000 in 5/2007 from a foreclosure and foreclosured again in 3/30/18 for outstanding $179,000. Listed repeatedly $137,750 down to $56,000 in 10/24/18. Sold 11/2018 for 80,000 (perhaps from foreclosure trustees back to bank?). This poor house! My guess is people keep biting off more than they can chew. Mantels and other details probably removed during an attempted renovation.

      I thought I’ve seen this house before! Glad to know I’m not crazy. I LOVE this house. But the stolen mantles are so upsetting. 🙁

    What’s old is new again, those beadboard ceilings are amazing. Second floor landing is the largest I’ve ever seen, so cool.

    The street view is amazing too, a beautiful white entrance fencing. This is a georgous house! And what a price! At least they left one mantel so they could be replicated. I hate theiving people when they rape these old beauties. I hope somebody snaps her up who loves these old gals!
