    This home has beautiful curb appeal and sits in a great neighborhood to walk around. I love the chimneys and the wonderful details. Looks like it’s due for a paint job. I like the white trim but think body of the house would look great in a deeper grey.

    That’s just adorable! You’d never think it was that big inside!

    Amazing little gem from the street. The parlors / bedrooms are amazing with their Goth windows. They’d be stunning if they were to the floor.

    Strong AJ Downing influence on that one; don’t have his books here in my office with me, but it’s obviously influenced by him. Love the original part; it’s a shame they didn’t give the modern addition the same high ceilings so that it would blend better. Almost feels like a different house.

      The windows are my favorite part! I usually don’t find Gothic Revival’s that have as many pointed arched interior windows in as many rooms.

    Cool kinda-Gothic adorable house. I want to move right in, too. TN is one of my fave states; it’s so pretty.

    Your statement, Kelly, that you expected OHD to be a place where people find interesting houses to stop a minute & enjoy, is just what I like about it. If anybody thinks you need to provide this kind or that sort, that child really should look on realtor sites; you aren’t here to do house-hunting for anyone. It’s all for fun, learning if readers are so inclined, and the love of old houses. You always get a ton of statements of support — because your fans realize how hard you work & don’t wish you to over-burden yourself. Don’t fret about us — anybody who insists on A or B isn’t using the site the way they should.

    PS — Love your feeling about a blank rectangle & the photo therein! Haha!

      I get an email from the same guy once a week about finding him some CHEEP houses. 😀 So I don’t think some readers realize what this site really is (maybe it’s my own fault for the way the site looks.) So far no one has complained about the big comment change, it’s been coming for a VERY long time and was a decision I’ve put off for over a year.

      PS, my fill in photo felt like the office setting I really want rather than the tornado office I currently am sitting in. 😀

        Hi Kelly: I feel a though I’ve missed something because I can’t relate to some of the comments made, such as “So far no one has complained about the big comment change, it’s been coming for a VERY long time and was a decision I’ve put off for over a year.”
        I’ve read the “rules” about commenting and I guess I’m not aware of a “big change”.

        Also, I am not aware of any “fill in photo”. Have I gone awry and been asleep to something? I ask only because I want to be alert and aware of what’s gone on in your wonderful postings and am afraid to make a mistake because I’m out of touch.
        Have wanted to inquire without any criticism or even the merest suggestion of such, as to the lack of postings of wonderful homes in Idaho and maybe even Wyoming. You have such a marvelous array of states covered, but I’m just curious about these two states. I’m sort of new here, so I may not be in touch.
        Again, many thanks for this site. I love it!

        Ha! You and me both! I write amid papers all over everywhere, 2 big books, a calculator & a printer, and an embarrassing amoung of cookie crumbs, and often a stripy cat who plops his paws on the keyboard & waits for a pet.

        Is the requirement to sign in because of robots & their relatives?

          I’ve got two big books at my side at all times, it’s annoying because my desk is actually an end table and not big enough for all I need. So if you were my next door neighbor you may hear me screaming about the expletives books every day. 😀 My office comes with too dogs and call it being a dog burrito because they don’t know life without a blanket on top of them which means me too.

          I’m not sure what you are asking in that last question. No robots involved in the decision though, a move to stop the internet from infiltrating. I don’t mind people that love old houses commenting but it’s to slow down those that think they are jokes. If they actually have to do more than type a few words then maybe they’ll stay out. Most of the good commenters are registered anyway.

    Our local (Kewanee/Galva IL) realtor used that she had two, yes TWO, homes featured on OHD and she was bragging. Brought a smile to my face. I expected you to say at one point during your above post “It’s mine and I’ll do what I want”. Good control since it would have been true and some clueless folks don’t get it. Stay strong!
