    The photos are squished (not by me), it’s not the house that is squished. 🙂

    Does anyone else think some of the interior woodwork looks older than 1920?

    Yes that “bullseye” woodwork is more typical to 1890.

    Looking at the woodwork and the style of house I would say this was 1890’s, not 1920’s. It might’ve been updated in 1920, but the house is much older than the date given

  4. I am the LUCKY BUYER of this gorgeous Home !…

    My 2 Wire Fox Terriers and I moved in on Christmas Day 2019 !…

    To confirm some of the posted comments from other members: This house was built in 1894 !…So your comments on date of construction were all very accurate !~…

    (An archival photo discovered at the genealogy department at the local library shows that this house was once quite a bit more grand, with a huge wrap-around porch complete with 3 stories, fancy ironwork and arched Victorian Entry Details which are long gone now )

    After tearing out some scandalously dirty and pet-stained carpets (left behind by squatters !…it sat vacant for years!), and a thorough effort to make the rooms smell better inside, the house has been surprisingly….Joyfully !…. LIVABLE !….

    To those reading this post and considering taking the PLUNGE on buying an old house…I say: Do your homework: pay for an independent full-home inspection (as I did) before buying…but if it all checks out …then…GO FOR IT ! 🙂
