    Nice Italianate style home here with some unfinished work but it is priced accordingly. It might make for a nice old house starter home for a younger couple with energy and creative visions but lacking a lot of funds. The classic Italianate Walnut staircase is a gem and if at all possible, should be refinished or cleaned and preserved. There is on the back of the house evidence of an earlier version that was probably added to and expanded later on. I don’t necessarily disagree with the listing idea of expanding the porch into a wrap around version provided the Italianate details are incorporated in the design. There’s far, far, too many old Italianates that have later Colonial/Classical columned porches and are at stylistic odds with the older Italianate style. In summary, there’s a lot to appreciate here for the modest price.

    Some nice original fixtures. This would be a wonderful restore. Price is right to do the job.
