    Are the french doors and windows in the 8th photo a later addition? I love the way they look together, just thought that style was more 1920 or so.

      Those are the doors that go to the enclosed porch so it’s not original.

        Agreed. I see doors like that start appearing in houses of the 20s. Even the windows of the porch are 20s looking. I’d rip it all out, and put in an open porch. Take out those doors and put in the window or windows that were there originally.
        This house has beautiful woodwork and stained glass! Wow factors.

    Here’s some more info on it: https://buildingsouthbend.nd.edu/properties/nd-sb-01306/

    This house is in the Chapin Park historic district. Certainly one of the most lovely historic neighborhoods in South Bend. It’s particularly incredible in fall and summer when all the huge old trees still have their foliage. Since it’s on a corner lot, it could easily become a showpiece for the neighborhood!

    Oh my!! i’ve been in this house! It’s been easily 8 or 9 years ago. I believe it was on the market at that time and the realtor was hosting an open house. It looks like nothing was done to it between then and now, unfortunately. Beautiful historic neighborhood. It deserves to have an owner who will bring it back to it’s former glory.

    My home town. This is the neighborhood I used to ride my bike through on the way to work, and fell in love with old houses!

    I love everything about this house. The pillars in photo #17 look out of place though, like they belong in a different house.

    I’m so excited we’ll be seeing this house on Saturday once the polar vortex blows through. The stain glass, fireplaces and woodwork all look so gorgeous!

    I thought the same thing. I love all those fireplace mantles. I wonder how many are actually useable after all these years of neglect. It looks like a sad house screaming out for help! Has it been vacant for a REALLY long time…? From the looks of that kitchen and bathrooms… well?

    i lived 2 doors down from this house for 5 years. and was friends with the owner at the time. so in the 80’s, i was in it several times. it has lots of potential. but things have been changed of course. and maintenance has never been the best. also it is on a very busy corner. with little yard. but it is a very nice neighborhood. the woodwork and the staircase are very nice. hopefully someone gets it that has the money and the love for it. also, if you use the street view and go 2 houses to the right you will see the Gothic Revival house that i owned at that time. another house that a new owner came into in the 1890’s and put in all new woodwork, staircase and fireplace mantles. Gothic Revival shoe-horned into Queen Anne.

    In the 1990’s I used to live 6 houses down in an Queen Anne turned into apartments and my landlords who owned that house owned and lived in this home. The woodwork is beautiful and the landing has a huge, gorgeous stained glass window. It’s a shame to see it in the shape it is now.
