    Lovely light fixtures; either the person is a collector, or they are original?

    Beautiful Queen Anne. Lovely unpainted woodwork and light fixtures. Wish I had the money.

    Love the woodwork and fireplace!! There is a house I would love to restore (also has beautiful woodwork and fireplaces) but due to its location it would be worth exactly what I put into it. Am I crazy? I just love the house so much that I hate to see it destroyed!

      You could move it, if you have the funds and then make it your dream home.

      Obviously, you are not talking about the pictured home, but if you could get out of an old house what you put into it–then I would consider that a winner. One of my homes is in a location which is quickly going downhill, and while I’m not restoring (it was in good shape) I will be thrilled if I can even get my original purchase price.

    Another example of choosing the right agent to market your antique home.

    Flaws? I don’t see any. It’s a beautifully preserved, in-tact, nicely originally adorned Victorian with great scale; style; fitted decorative appointments; and many great remaining fixtures to boot! Why ask for more? Everything here is in top shape. The kitchen and baths all have generous space, so if changes are in the works for the new owner, they have great spaces to re-think, with seemingly no need to modify the structure. The cabinets look like quality units; so changing out the cabinet doors and drawer fronts to a more period correct look would be a lower cost option. LOVE that kitchen space. It’s perfect for a big, solid, round table in the center, (were it mine). 🙂

    Beautiful house, nice woodwork, staircase, fireplaces & light fixtures. Nice to see a home in Wisconsin that is not a bungalow. Nothing against bungalows, but there seem to be a lot of them for sales in WI.

    The nearly windowless box addition with the reverse hip roof eliminates any possibility of this being “intact”.
    I like most of the rest of the house. The fire places are lovely as is the majority of the woodwork.
    The deck, wrapped around the box, is as awkward as the box. It’s really the only thing about the house that makes me crazy because it would not be worth the money to make it right.
    Victorians often look whimsical in their arrangement, but they are not. Out of balance is out of balance, and it makes me nuts.

    Elegant practical roomey homey- Perfect for me> Just one thing I’d do shortly after moving in, or prior. The sink, frig, stove- triangle is way to spread out. I like to use all 3 frequently and at one step away at most. If you wand 10 folks in the kitchen, for meals, daily, Make the cooks job easier. — no microwaves need apply— lol joke.

    Just one more thing: It snows in Wisconsin, the steam heat or hot water heat is great, but one needs to be an engineer at 3AM. I bet it’s on computers now-a-days. Bang on pipe for more heat on 3rd. floor. Yikes. what fun. I used to sleep in a sleeping bag, (in bed).

    Reedsburg is a growing area too. Quite a few jobs in the area to choose from as compared to a lot of other places around here.
    Beautiful house!

    I found an old photo while browsing in the internet. It shows some people in front of a house. The thing that caught my eye was the distinct window on the house. It also seems the porch didn’t originally go all the way across the front of the house. I’m not posative this is the same house but everything seems to match, even the small window on the porch at the corner of the house.

    If the present front porch is an edition, it’s an old one and perfectly done.
