    Oh sweet Bricktorian, I long to see more of you . . . .

  2. Oh don’t tease me with “basement has brick floors and the former fireplace” and then deny me the viewing pleasure!!

    The state file calls this the house of John Hyde Stout, who bought land here in 1833 and died that same year. Probably one of his many descendants built it, perhaps his son Elijah Stout (1807-1869), who had a large family. The location was outside of town when built, and the house the centerpiece of an impressive farm.

    I’m singing Bethany’s song also!

    Planning a move to IN. Saw this one in person today. Has original knob and tube wiring and woodwork. A few updates from years (decades) ago. Charming in its own right complete with transoms, several entrances, a good flow and nice energy. The outside is just as adorable as the pics. Seemingly good bones but I’m not skilled in that area. Definitely an adorable home for someone with the money to update a few things. The only thing I found truly disappointing was the shag carpeting throughout covering what may be rather exquisite hardwood floors. For sure I would have been drooling all over! Would have had to follow me around with a mop!

      I get that OHDdrooler decided not to buy this house as it’s above their skill and/or budget level; bravo on not jumping in with unreasonable expectations and then regretting. That said, what a great home that has the benefit of “just being lived in.” That’s owners that simply use the home – not destroy – not make update mistakes – just keep it going. New Castle is a nice town, neighborhood seems stable, asking price unbelievably reasonable, huge lot. I’m guessing one reason the relator didn’t take more pictures was the assumption it would turn off potential buyers to see a pool table in the dining room and other casual furnishing. Potential buyers sometimes find it hard to visualize what “could be” unlike this group that “drools” for more!

        You are very correct! It is above my skillset. And, most definitely, I’d have lived in it. I’m a modern person with a few modern conveniences (computer etc.). Therefore I need modern electric. That aside, other than painting and removal of the carpeting, I wouldn’t change much of anything. I liked it “as-is”. It really is a beautiful home! 🙂

        Heheheh. Yeah: “denied” even a decent look at this cool house; especially the above mentioned >basement has brick floors and the former fireplace that was used for cooking. That’s just the sort of thing I most enjoy seeing. Sorry for the ambiguity. Mostly just wanted to be subscribed to this thread in case of updates. 🙂

    Ditto, Bethany! The house is too interesting to have such few pictures. It does look as if there may have been shutters on the windows in front, based on the discoloration of the brick on each side of the windows. Am I seeing that right?

    Interesting use of Greek Revival interior trim detailing with the Italianate exterior.

      That happened a lot in the 1850’s as the two styles were concurrently popular. The use of what appears to be Minton tile on one of the fireplaces is really odd in conjunction with a Greek Revival mantelpiece… I’ve never seen that before!

    I agree. There needs to be more pictures of this beautiful house. The outside is so gorgeous.

    What a bonus when an OHD fan actually gets to see the inside of one of these old beauties… 🙂
