    wow, wow, wow. This is my dream era and condition. I would love to bring this lady back to her former glory! The only room I’m not crazy about is that paneled den, which looks like a later addition.

    Posted earlier today but by the end of the day it went to pending sale. Tear downs happening in Ventnor so we’ll see.

      I love the shower doors too! I just scored a set of frosted, 1940s shower doors at auction; mine have the silhouette of a Greek maiden holding an urn. But I prefer fish doors, like the ones shown here. If the buyer decides to replace those doors — heaven forbid — I hope that he or she knows how much they go for!

      No kidding. I cringe when I think that someone may come in and rip that bathroom all out.

    I hope they don’t think the yellow bathroom needs updating. – My mom had the pink fish with the bubbles in our bathroom. 🙂

    Okay, I just have to say it. This is not a “Total rehab”. Yes, it needs work, yes the roof need attention (obviously) but this is just magnificent the way it is! The bathrooms, the tile, what is not to love and adore?

    And that walk out basement with the steps? It even has a screen door. We had one similar in our 1912 house down by Roseburg but it didn’t have a screen door—how charming is that?

    And finally, I would love a close up of that kitchen cabinet on the far wall in one of the photos. It appears to match the rest of the cabinetry, but has a drop down/counter with a cubby for. . .?

    I love this house. Please PLEASE don’t destroy it (my wish for the new owners).

    I love the radiator covers!

    I do hope the buyer restores it rather than demolishing it, but I have a bad feeling about that….
