    Those poor painted floors. They would have to be stripped. Lots of potential in this beautiful home.

      Wide hemlock flooring was always painted. The one floor in green in an upstairs room appears to have a spattered design, which could be an original finish. Floors like these in nicer homes were often stencil or even marbleized. I would be a shame to strip them.

        You are 100% correct. Chances are good however, that some clueless ignorant darling will strip and shiny varnish them. Sadly,old houses, like dogs, have no control over who “adopts” them. I will hope for the best with this one!

          thats a sad fact of life, Ms Lidderdale

          nothing gets under my skin faster then those that insist on refinishing something to death for the sake of the possibility of getting hurt or GASP !! a splinter

          I say “leave well enough alone unless thars something seriously wrong with it”

        Thanks for the information 🙂 first I had heard of it

        I wasn’t sure if the spattered paint was linoleum or not. Should the floors need to be stripped to be finished?

      thars always room for improvement with any house and this place is no different from my POV

      but if thars any one of the dozen positives to this place you got room to let the kids/ animals play and from the description it sounds like a wonder filled area full of places to explore

      the kitchen needs a bit of help though 😐

    This house can’t make up its mind.

    Beautiful setting! This house appears to only need some cosmetic work. I like the pale colored kitchen cabinets, but I would probably change the vinyl flooring. And I would probably strip the debated floor paint. I would rather decorate with a lovely wood stain than that strong green color. The room that’s jarring is the 80’s bathroom. That needs a redo sympathetic to this pretty home’s age. And a thank you to the realtor for including a floor plan!

    I wonder how you enter this home. Family no doubt pulls into the barn and comes in through the mud room. Do they have guests do the same? It is a long hike from the drive to the front porch and there are no sidewalks and many shrubs barring access. Maybe cuts down on traveling salesmen since they don’t know where to go:). Overall I still find this place very ‘homey’.
