    I drove through Cave Springs the weekend before last and gasped so many times, really should have pulled over. I don’t live close enough to ask the agent for a walk through or that’s what I’d be up to today. I’ve already asked husband for another house, “We already have a house…” always the same answer from him, geez.

    Build date given is 1901 but I’d put this home 1880 or earlier. The National Register record doesn’t have a description for this home but did have a photo from 1980 which I included above.

      I love that — “We already have a house!”

      And what exactly is wrong with having more than one house? If you love old houses and love living in them and working on them, why not figure out how to have as many as you want, where ever you want? If they were all VRBO’s , for instance,with local managers, you could live in one and rent out the rest and rotate depending on the weather and your whims. I think you could work up more than one permutation of that, especially with multiple dwelling properties in more or less exotic places like France or Nova Scotia or Georgia.

    Hi Kelly! I actually toured this house once when it was an antique shop, not sure what its current use is. The caretaker claimed the older part of the house was pre-civil war, seeing the details inside it seems plausible. The center hall was really interesting with curved walls at one end forming an ellipse-like shape.

      When I drove by it still looked like it was being used for an antique store or shop of some sort. I was surprised to see it listed today, I had looked it up last week to find out about it.

      The rear wing could very well be antebellum as it has 9-over-9 windows in it. The steeply-pitched roof makes this place really appealing… I can’t help but wonder if it did not have some Gothic detailing originally as it would certainly work well here.

    Can we get more pictures? The three links only show the outside, but nothing of the interior. This house looks like it would be beautiful on the interior. More pictures, PLEASE!!!

    Unfortunately in my case Kelly is right…. money is the problem, but your idea sounds wonderful.

    I can’t absolutely discern any windows in those steeply gabled roofs and wonder if there are/were any. A Gothic revival house with that much in the way of resources devoted to its steeply gabled roofs with no functional space under them would be highly unusual. Did anyone actually see windows or past evidence of same, or just ventilation framed areas which is all I think I see now?
