    Today’s old house photo is from Iowa. I don’t know where, the back says “Grandpa & Grandma’s house in Iowa the people in the picture lived there before grandpa bought the place.”

      Anne,
      You are correct about the 144 Union St. Dutch Colonial/Shingle style house dating from before 1920. I would date it to the 1895-1905 period which would center it around 1900 when houses of this type were very popular. It has a very nice interior and seems reasonably priced for the features offered. Thanks for sharing.

    Hello all. I found lots to view in New Hampshire this week. smile

    1723 Georgian, Dover, NH 499,900

    I am trying to educate myself on the differences between Georgian and Federal. So far, Georgian is earlier than Federal and both seem to have elegant front doors. I studied a bit last night-Georgian with asthetic links to the Italian Renaissance and Federal, moving away from our ties with England, simpler, less pretense. Much more to learn! What I like about this house is the front door. It reminds me of Old Deerfield, MA. The house is rather polished, but is cared for. The kitchen, while seeming to have all the bells and whistles, is simplified by no overhead cabinets, light filled and beautiful. It to me, is not a harsh transition and compliments the home.

    1900 (I think much earlier), Epping, NH 499,900

    To my untrained eye this house looks perhaps 100 years older than listed. My thought is Federal, but I would love to hear what others have to say. No interior shots. The older section is a lovely three story “box” with a newer, uninteresting addition to the back.

    1860 Italianate, Greenville, NH, 549,000

    Notice the very tall chimneys, could this house be older than 1860 and just updated? Interesting old cookstove-what a great thing to have been saved! I love the rounded front door and screen echoing the Italianate windows. Could there have been sidelights/transom lights that were above the door too?

    1738, Nottingham, NH 575,000

    Not much is shown of the exterior as it is covered by overgrown bushes. This seems odd as the house appears well cared for inside. There are a few old TVs that appear to be from the late 60s. Lastly, I love a good horse farm.

        Yeah, sending out a bunch of links like that via email (for comment subscribers) alerts the spam police. But since your post was early on, I don’t think any emails went out for that comment.

    Hello everyone,
    It’s been awhile since I shared or even commented on OHD but I found this one recently and have been wanted to share it.

    $2,350,000 1915 Condo San Francisco, CA https://www.coldwellbankerhomes.com/ca/san-francisco/2164-hyde-st-611/pid_26960128/

    A little different but it has that kind of Mansion in the Sky feel which is really rare to find so intact in this city. It is so sad how the listing talks about turning it into a “21st Century Home”. Sadly, this isn’t a bad price for San Francisco but those CO-OP membership fees will kill you no matter where you live!

        The exterior is a bit plain but that is sadly common in San Francisco. This is NOT the worst example though, at least it still has some dental and trim. In the late 70s and early 80s, there was a San Francisco “Beautification” project in which the city wanted to make the city look more modern, a lot of old Victorians were destroyed and a lot that stayed had their woodwork and trim stripped from them to be covered in stucco to make them look more “modern” The city actually PAID homeowners to do this as a part of the “Beautification” of the city.

        I fear for the interior of that 2.3 million apartment. No great loss in the kitchen (except the old subway tile), but the bathrooms are in peril, I fear.

      • AvatarKyle says: 19 comments

        Not too common at all actually, especially on older condos, the high rate might have to do with it being a Co-op but I’m not sure about the amidities of the building. I’ve seen newer condos with a lot of unnecessary amenities have HOAs of around $700 a month but older ones you’re usually just helping keep the lights on in the halls, other shared utilities like garbage and water, and maybe a janitor, those buildings are usually in between $50 – $100 so I really don’t know why this one is so high. Taxes are 1% of what you paid for the home.

      This is truly gorgeous. The only reason I can see that it has been on the market so long is the location? Hiram is a bit up there but still not that far from Portland and a hop skip and a jump from Sebago. Someone needs to grab this one.

      • AvatarPaula Libby says: 33 comments

        Just did a little research into the builder of the house, John Watson, born 1750, who came from England with his family. They first lived in Arundel (now kennebunkport). He served in the Continental Army and then moved to Brownfield, ME., now part of Hiram. He first built a crude house on the banks of the Saco River and lived there until the Spring of 1785 when his home was washed away in a flood. He then built this house higher up from the banks of the Saco. It is the oldest house in Hiram. Gen. Peleg Longfellow, grandfather of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, also was an early settler of Hiram and his home still stands. Unfortunately, you’re right about Hiram being out of the way. Still not too far from Sanford and about half way between Portsmouth, NH and Portland, Me. But if someone is looking for an old, old house in Southern Maine, the southwest part of the state is a good place to look for bargains and homes that need to be rescued and restored. Much was lost during the Fire of 1947 in York County closer to the coast, but many still survive when you get close to the NH border. Lots of rivers and lakes in the area.

    Happy Friday!

    Here’s one I meant to post earlier. This is a 1903 former ‘tied-house’ tavern and flat, one of almost 60 built by Schlitz Brewing Co. in the early 1900s in Chicago. Almost all of the remaining tied houses were recently designated as landmarks by the city (including this one). The location of this one is interesting in that it was built just outside the boundary of the Pullman factory town. George Pullman forbade taverns/drinking in his town, so Schlitz just built a row of taverns on the other side of the street. There’s little remaining of the original interior but hopefully a new owner will get creative.

    York, PA. 1849. 329K.
    https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/30-S-Beaver-St-York-PA-17401/82771064_zpid/

    This is close to my ideal home if York were 1)Connected by frequent high-speed rail to Phila/NY & Balt/DC 2)80% of the surrounding parking lots were made back into city 3)All of the major 1-way streets in York were converted to 2-way and auto traffic was restricted or limited 4)A robust public transportation and protected bike lane network was implemented. Oh, and 5)This street was a trolley and bike only street. SOOOO much more quiet.

    It feels like if we connected these smaller and mid-sized cities to our bigger metropolises w/ high-speed rail we’d open up these places to a revival b/c of their relatively affordable housing stock. Maybe all the kids that don’t see a future in their smaller towns can stay if they have a 1-seat ride into a city where the jobs are? Or, maybe it allows those already in the city for their work, but who’d prefer to live somewhere different, a new option for where to live that’s more affordable/quiet/etc than a major metropolitan area, but still has access to it’s opportunities.
    Anyway, I think about American infrastructure WAY TOO MUCH, and I think what we’ve built has had largely deleterious effects on the places where these homes that we all seem to love so much, are often located. I personally hope we return to a more traditional development pattern and have a high-speed rail revolution.

    Sorry Kelly if I’ve run afoul of any commenting rules. Feel free to delete or censor as needed.

      People living in small cities across the country with active economies? Trolleys and bicycles to get to small shops and restaurants all around town? Quick, reliable transportation between cities at low cost?

      We did all that 100+ years ago. There was a trolley that ran in front of the townhouse in York by the 1880’s! Bicycles were the way to go before automobiles came along to upend the whole system. Unfortunately, folks still like their cars and there’s neither the public will or the funds to rebuild that world.

      It’s a great house, supposedly built in 1849 and improved later by Dr. Henry L. Smyser. It was on OHD 5 years ago and hasn’t sold because … (reasons).

      1889 Eastlake Cottage
      Fort Worth, TX

      Although George Barber did design mansion size homes with ornate details, every plan book always featured smaller cottages like this one. Geo. Barber passed away in 1915 and his final plan book came out in 1908 so I believe this house dates from the early years of the 20th century. Not sure why there’s a (looks period appropriate) mantel leaning against the wall in one room. With the house largely a “plain vanilla” version inside, the next owner(s) can take it in whatever direction stylistically they wish. I applaud the faithful restoration of the period exterior-this house would look dreadful covered in vinyl siding. The carport in the back is a surprise as it mimics the original period details of the house. I think enclosing the carport and finishing it out like a period carriage house would compliment the house even more. Thanks for sharing.

        This area of Knoxvile has a large concentration of Barber homes. He built and lived in several of them. Sadly many of the older homes here have had been given the open floor plan renovation where you can see the kitchen from the front door and everything is gray and white.

          I suppose in the future people interested in period interiors may describe today’s interiors as the “Grey” phase. So many remodeled and new interiors have exactly the same look that they are invariably set up for obsolescence. Whatever changes to come in the future are sure to be different from what is popular now. We seem to be in the midst of a revival of ceramic and natural stone tiles in interiors. Who knows where this stylistic trend is headed? One thing is for sure, nothing stays static for very long.
          But Barber designed houses are products of their time; therefore, grafting on whatever is currently popular shows a total disrespect for the architectural legacy of George Franklin Barber and the material history inherent in his designed homes. Any necessary changes to Barber designed houses should be first considered as “timeless” and/or “Classic”. In simpler terms, The Barber part of the house should remain unchanged and carried on to future generations for their appreciation and understanding. Changes made recently should age well and be sympathetic to the period of the house. Barber had a knack for house design and whenever he was challenged with new designs such as the emerging Colonial/Classical revivals after 1900 he brought in talented architects to partner with so he could offer up to the minute current designs for his clients. I believe the Barber brand was synonymous with quality during the period when he was active. (1888-1908) George Barber leaves behind a legacy any architect would be proud of so hopefully Knoxville will recognize the importance of Baber’s architectural legacy to the community and will attempt to preserve as many surviving Barber examples as possible. Sad indeed that Barber’s last residence, “Rosemont”, was lost recently. A direct Barber descendant posted several photos of George with family members at Rosemont which must have been a refuge of happiness in his final years.

    Kia Ora from New Zealand,

    Rambling, colourful late 19th century villa in a sub-tropical setting in the Auckland suburb of Mt. Eden. It’s actually two independent dwellings so there is always the opportunity to keep it that way or merge it into one even bigger house. Mt. Eden is a very desirable suburb full of leafy avenues and old homes and excellent schools. The house is for Auction (a very common way to sell property here in NZ) but the council valuation is $US 1,772,682.

    Very pretty cottage in the Auckland suburb of Grey Lynn – the home is known as “The House of Roses” for obvious reasons and has a gorgeous, modern Colonial style kitchen and beautifully appointed rooms. Note that the ceilings, which are now white, are made out of native kauri wood which has a warm,rich honey colour in it’s natural state and which, if it were my home, would have been left as is.The house is for Auction and has a council valuation of $US1,806,900.00.

    And now down to the South Island to the settlement of Benhar and a big brick turn of the century beauty called Lesmahagow – I suspect it is named after the small town of the same name in Scotland. This region of New Zealand was settled by Scots so it makes sense. Ornate ceilings, stained glass leadlight windows, original fireplaces and woodwork and a meandering formal and cottage style garden. There is also the opportunity to purchase an adjoining church. It currently operates as a bed and breakfast and wedding venue but if it were mine that would stop so I could have it all to myself!!! It is up for Negotiation but has a council valuation of $US422,758 (does not include church).

    Afternoon, everyone!

    A tour of the latest in NW Connecticut listings this week.

    This 1806 Greek Revival in the Upper Merryall section of New Milford is listed at 247k. When I saw it, my heart said, make a call to the agent, you need this house! However, Once I started thinking about it, it doesn’t really make sense. I hope it finds an appreciative buyer, because it has the potential to be a stunner. And that barn! Just a knockout. Take a look at the streetview and browse a bit, you may end up making a call to the realtor yourself.

    https://www.estately.com/listings/info/108-squire-hill-road

    Next is an 1860 cottage in Washington, Ct listed at 850k. I’ve been inside this house before and am surprised that the owner is selling. He’s been there for many years and has created a paradise. The gardens are absolutely incredible.

    https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/63-River-Rd_Washington-Depot_CT_06794_M33227-61312?view=qv

    Lastly, is a 1760 farmhouse on almost 40 acres in the Milton section of Litchfield, Ct listed at 1.1 million. As fancifully decorated as the Washington cottage, this one also has wonderful gardens.

      The 1860 cottage in Washington is exactly what I would call dream decor and the gardens!!! I like Washington. My daughter went to school there for a bit and I just loved driving past all the amazing old homes.

      My hopes jumped a little with the New Milford house but the more I looked at it I kept adding up all the work and then I saw the barn, gorgeous but so much to do. Horses need a barn that is ready to go or at least not going to fall down on them. *wink*

        Thanks Barbara! Sue, the Merryall house is going to need a lot of work, and without knowing if there is a proper septic, well I’ve been through that before. So much to love in the location and the house though. I really feel like if someone has the money to invest in that one, it’s going to be spectacular. It’s in an area that could demand a ton if restored properly. Diane Von Furstenberg’s estate is around the corner. There’s an open house on Sunday, so if anyone has any questions, I’ll see what I can find out. Gotta go see it in person, even if it’s just to dream a bit. Washington is a great town, but it’s pricey. I live one town over, and the prices drop greatly.

      Not a run of the mill house here in Marion, IL. I could believe this house was built by a skilled local carpentry/millwork craftsman for himself using millwork catalog components. The front porch and added sunroom above it probably date from the 1910-1920 era. The staircase without railing is unique in my experience but looks 100% original so again some creativity is evident. I noticed some steam pressed embossed door trim (also available from catalogs) as well as the glorious complex stained glass geometric windows. Assuming its still open, there’s a Carnegie Library building within a short walking distance. I also love the brick streets as they lend period charm to this residential area. Thanks for sharing.

        1886 Queen Anne Victorian

        The house was built in 1885 by J. M. Aikman, who owned a local lumber company and would have had access to the best building supplies, plus would have known the best craftsmen in the area. It remained in the family until around 1950, when it was sold to Mr. and Mrs. Barney Russell. The current owners bought it after Mrs. Russell passed in 2004. I knew Mrs. Russell, and she kept the house as original as possible. Our house, 2 doors north, was built in 1886 and although larger, has many similarities with this house. The Carnegie Library is still active, and was actually enlarged a few years ago.

    This is a maybe in Hampton CT. I am a little afraid of the work that is left to do (ie the cost) but I do so love this 1790 cape. Says it is only 2 bedroom but it has more, just not renovated. Check out the gorgeous barn they built to match the house. 285,000

    May I ask a question without offending anyone? I was looking at the beautiful Queen Anne Kelly posted in Selma, Al. There are only about 8 fuzzy pics and the home appears to be absolutely beautiful. Question is, why would a realtor not try to really showcase such a place and why would the seller be willing to accept this lack of service when they have such a fine house to offer? I didn’t post this on the home posting so that I wouldn’t offend either the realtor or the seller, but I can’t get the question out of my mind. Thanks for any thoughts.

    • AvatarHoyt Clagwell says: 262 comments

      Well, the pictures aren’t fuzzy by accident–clearly the photographer was a professional who was making a deliberate style choice to use a shallow depth of field. The pictures are, in and of themselves, quite attractive and artful. They do, however, look more like wedding photography rather than what one would expect to find in a real estate listing, and one could certainly debate the appropriateness of such a style choice when a potential buyer might be more interested in images that accurately convey general details of the property than in artful, moody evocation.

      Although the term “Craftsman” is used very loosely to describe Bungalows from about 1900-1930, true Craftsman houses were built from illustrated models featured in The Craftsman magazine published by Gustav(e) Stickley from October 1901-Dec. 1916. The magazine inspired builders and architects across the country to incorporate Craftsman/Bungalow exterior designs as well as Arts & Crafts interior details into their own home designs. The Bryan, Ohio, example is either directly copied from a Craftsman magazine model or was heavily influenced by one. In some locales where Bungalows/Craftsman type homes are highly coveted, you’d have to add another zero to the price or more to buy one like this well preserved example. Its one of the best I’ve seen in a while in terms of preservation. Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks for the variety of homes. The former Empress of Little Rock B&B is truly spectacular. I’m a bit confused about the “unit B” designation-does that mean the house has been divided up into condo units or otherwise split up? I noted it has 6 bathrooms; one for each bedroom. The 1930’s Pine Bluff brick Colonial offers a lot of house for the modest asking price.

        Sounds like a law enforcement problem. City leaders should prioritize reducing the crime statistics. It takes time but communities willing to take steps to reduce crime can usually turn things around. Civic leaders surely recognize that such high crime stats are a stigma on their community and often lead to disinvestment and a decline of the community. It’s in everyone’s best interest to participate in the community’s efforts to reduce the crime problem. If laws are being flagrantly broken, it is the responsibility of law enforcement to clamp down and if nothing else, make the criminal element move to somewhere else.

          John I agree. 15 years ago there were some lovely old homes in this town. But today they are run down and no one wants to live there. Very sad. Those statistics are real.

            I took some time today to take a more in-depth look at Pine Bluff. The population is declining with evidence of that decline widespread across town. Wide swaths of the older residential areas are pock marked with vacant lots, boarded up abandoned houses, with some burned out houses standing open to the elements. Even the downtown has little to suggest a prosperous community. I did find this unique early survivor not far from downtown: https://goo.gl/maps/6JQ3d9qRk212 However, unless someone with deeper pockets decides to save it, I would not give this former mansion much of a chance to survive for long. I’m now convinced that stepped up law enforcement alone would not solve the problems of this struggling community. New investment is badly needed and that seems to be in short supply.

      Elkins looks relatively prosperous in streetview and has a local college. However, even with the added four acre lot, I’m not sure that the market there can support the asking price of this house. In a more active market location, the house would be considered a bargain but not many folks are relocating to WV these days. I strongly agree that the interior of this mansion grade home doesn’t disappoint. Thanks for sharing.

      This home is beautiful. I like the eleghant front parlor with its beautiful ceiling detail and paint detail. And I love the kitchen. Great contribution. Sorry if my spelling is off-nasty head cold, but it doesn t keep me away from OHD.

    1930. There’s a good amount of 1930 left, but also a bunch of groovy 70s. Especially like the kidney-bean-shaped bar area and the first kitchen shown (it appears to have two kitchens?).
    Great house with lots of personality. $200K

    Fabulosity doesn’t come cheap… and neither does this mid-century brutalist craftsmen organic home. You’re gonna have to fork out 2.8M big ones, but if you are the lucky buyer please invite me over for a cocktail or two….https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/126-Summit-Rd_La-Verne_CA_91750_M12342-86554 https://vimeo.com/291605075

    Built in 1873, this building was originally a church, the former bell tower has been converted into a reading nook. The custom design is a must see. Converted to 4 2-bdrm apartments; the upper level, known as ‘The Lansing Loft’ is a beautiful master loft with views of the Mississippi River and community of Lansing. The Loft is offered for vacation rental and occasional long-term contract.

    Found this awesome OHD site from a friend! We are moving and I am determined to find another old home that needs my love! Sad to say we are selling our 1924 historic home in my hometown of Homestead Fl. If you don’t know where that is it’s 20 min north of the the Fl Keys and 45 min south of Miami. We have only lived in this home for almost 5 yrs! I bought her from the Fredrick Family that had owned her since the 40’s. I had a lot more I wanted to do to our home and bring her back to her glory days but my husbands new job is taking us north! Please have a look and let anyone you know that loves old homes and warm weather to check out this beauty! I will miss her terribly but I know I will find another that needs my help❤️

      Isn’t it true that old houses are like old friends? I renovated a 1928 farmhouse more than 15 years ago, lived in her for 4 years, and I still miss that old girl! She was my baby, and I knew every square inch of her (since I redid every single surface in the house!). Your baby is lovely, and will be in good hands, I hope. It’s so hard to leave a house you’ve loved. We left because of a job change, totally unexpected. We’d expected our old farmhouse was our forever house, but life changes, and we had to move. Never found an old girl I love as much as I loved her, though, but I’m still looking! Good luck to you in your quest.

        Thank you! I said I would never move again ha! I’ve already found one just as beautiful as my south Fl girl! I do hope the new owners can finish her off she will be missed! Good luck to you on your search it’s very hard and can be scary at times you know there’s always some surprise waiting to reveal itself once you start the fixing her up process but always well worth it! There is so much beauty and originality in an old home! I’m def addicted 💯❤️🤦🏻‍♀️

    Just for fun. An 11th-century portion of a French castle, converted to a residence in the late 19th century. I’ll take it! That’s a Rapunzel tower if there ever was one. $1,581,385 USD

    Apologies if this has been posted. Zillow always sends me recommend homes to look at and I NEVER remember looking at houses in Oregon, but they seem to send me a page full every day, even though that state is across the country from me !

    I did like this one though, but no interior pics.
    $390,000 farmhouse built around 1900 on 5 acres . In Oregon

    This one in Portsmouth, RI is pending and I REALLY hope the buyers are planning on restoring it. It could be so grand!! They have an old picture that shows what I believe are the old additions which aren’t there anymore. Truthfully, the house is plenty big as it is now but it would be great to see what those additions looked like on the inside.

    This one in Swansea, MA has a lot of history but it makes me sad to see the state it’s in.

      Oops! Forgot prices! The Portsmouth, RI house is pending at $595,000. And the Swansea, MA house is for sale at $178,500. Interestingly, both have 1833 build dates.

    The CR in Swansea is worthy of restoration.
    A little plaster. Some structural cor-rection. Get rid of the heating baseboards.
    It’s definitely worth doing.
    Oh yeah,a little masonry restoration
