    Build date given was 1900 but this is about 20 years older than that.

    Well now. She has had a rough go and it shows, but look at what is peeking through! That staircase, the unpainted trim, that shiny wallpaper!

    Lots and lots of work to do here, hopefully there isn’t structural issues from the water damage or bad renos. With a low purchase price and a good sized lot, this could be a really nice place when done.

    Anyone know what is going on with those rooflines? Maybe there was an Italianate tower, widow’s walk, or some such that came off. On the stair the newel post looks older, but the balusters and bannister could be Italianate. The roof brackets give that vibe too. Perhaps a redo when Queen Anne free classic was the fashion from the porch columns? I don’t know, but it is the kind of house I like.

      Looking at the street view the roof looks a little less weird. But yes, started out as an Italianate and had some updates along the way.

      Many Italianates have truncated hipped roofs (a low-pitched hipped roof — the top and center section of which is flat). If these flat areas begin to leak, homeowners often build pitched roof sections above them in an effort to shed rain and snow better. I’m going to guess that this is what likely happened here.

      Also, the second floor windows were recently shortened. The 2008 Street View shows the house with taller windows – either 4-over-4 or 2-over-2. Replacement siding conceals the scars. I think the staircase is probably intact and all original… the house appears to be a late example of the Italianate style. The porch is definitely an early 20th century alteration. Loads of potential and design opportunity for the right visionary!

        Dear AO,
        Thank you for your response. It makes so much sense. I would certainly want to remove the low pitched hipped roof and replace the flat covering with one of the more reliable roofing materials available today, if I were redoing this house.

    While there is a lot of work to be done here, I see a great deal of potential and opportunity for the right buyer. The low price should leave quite a bit of room for restoration expenses.
