    I tell people I post homes that don’t make me cringe but that’s not always true. Sometimes the what could be overrides the cringe as long as it has an ounce of something original and interesting. Between the exterior shape of the home and interior woodwork I feel like this could be something great in the right hands.

      Kelly, I’m sharing this link yet again in response to your comment here. Yes! “Something great” is just waiting to happen. After looking at this resource, I will never look at a plain old white Queen Anne again:

        That first home is gorgeous…pretty sure I posted that one before but don’t remember what state.

        The only thing I wish they had included were the non turret Queen Anne’s. I had a discussion with someone either here or on Facebook that not all Queen Anne’s have turrets or multi-paint colors.

        I keep saying one of these days I’ll do my own “what style is it?”, one of these days.

          That would be fun. Because of OHD, I now annoy anyone in the car with me by my short, simple utterances of “craftsman, craftsman, queen anne, colonial revival, classical revival, classical revival, craftsman, victorian, etc.” Driving folks nuts!

            For that price I hope someone who truly loves & appreciates these old homes will snatch it up!! I think it’s great & with the right tlc a lucky buyer will have gotten an amazing deal!

            Me too — mostly talking back to HGTV as they incorrectly identify houses.

        This house could be stunning! First order of business is to rip off the siding, rip out the carpet. The huge plus for me is the beautiful, original woodwork. It’s a diamond in the rough at a bargain basement price.

    I normally dislike wallpaper, but I love the look and feel of every one of these rooms, and that blue kitchen is drool worthy.

    It’s on the edge of town. Nearly an acre of land. Unspoiled sunset views from that tower. Fields for neighbours. Unpainted woodwork. A beautiful fireplace surround. Detached garage. Bathroom and kitchen that I would not feel bad about ripping out. Good roof.

    There’s a lot to love. Enough left to keep original looks, enough gone that you can make it your own and not feel like you’ve destroyed something.

    I can only assume that there was a quite an ornate front porch that wrapped from front door to side. Most likely a large gable ornament occupied the space above the windows of the front gable as well. Removing the siding will most likely reveal plenty of shadow lines where things once existed.
