    This appears to be a beautiful home. I especially like the original light fixtures and pressed tin ceilings. Perhaps it was a cloudy day or something because the pictures seem like good quality but the home looks really dark.

    Beautiful home inside and out. Great fence. Looks bigger than the s.f. listed.

    I am in awe! So beautiful and so tastefully decorated. Thankfully all the lovely wood work was spared white paint

      I’m with you, I absolutely love these older homes, but if they cover all the trim, staircases, fireplaces and woodwork with white paint, it just spoils it for me. Could just picture myself and a friend sitting at that warm and welcoming table, having coffee and breakfast, looking out from the window in that kitchen. Would love to live in one of these beautiful 1800’s homes, but wouldn’t be able to manage it by myself. In my dreams!!! 🙂

    Wonderful home. If only I had a reason to move to Iowa! The multi-color stains on the hall woodwork is very typical of the era.

    Reminds of the houses on Judy Garland’s street in Meet Me in St. Louis.

    What a great home! It would be a pleasure to live there, even with the horribly hot summers and very cold winters.
