    I’ll try to keep a check on this for if/when interior photos are added. Thought I’d post it anyway, just in case it goes off market before then. 🙂

    The farmhouse of Franklin L. Walton (1835-1908) who farmed 300 acres here.

      JimH, what isn’t right about this besides the bay window? Is this a turn of the century Midwest T Farmhouse w/ Gothic Revival trim and an Ante bellum porch addition? It’s hard not being able to see the inside.

        The date seems about right for a Gothic Revival farmhouse. The porch is from after 1900 and the 2nd story windows under it were probably wall dormers as in the rear. The upper dormer is odd and maybe was added for attic light. Obviously the addition is later, and maybe the small part in the rear where the roof catslides down. The bay and the window next to it look a bit off, but it’s hard to tell from here. It’s an interesting old place and I’m curious about the interior!

      He must’ve been pretty prosperous. I wonder who sold off all but 2.5 acres of the farm.

    How much of a bastardization would it be to add a second story porch under the existing second story porch roof which doesn’t really fit so well with the Gothic Revival theme which looks original? Asking for a friend.
    The trim is beautiful, what’s left of it, and there appears to be enough to use as a pattern for manufacture of restorative pieces. Wish I could get as-built photos.

      It looks like maybe there was one? There seem to be some shadows in the right spots. So perhaps that would be a good excuse to add one back.

      I’d forgive the bastardization of a second porch, if you remove the weird dormer at the end of the roof! (But it may be there to accomodate a staircase)

      Hoping for interior shots soon!

        I think the “weird dormer” is actually somebodys attempt at a solar water heater. There’s another panel on the ridge of the back roof pointing in the same direction.
        Along those lines, all the windows are vinyl replacements, probably thermo pane (includes the anomalous “bay window”) and those small round spots on the exposed siding are consistent with the installation of blown in wall fill or foam. The rotted Tyvek tells the rest of the story. Somebody put some weatherization work into this place.

      Exactly what I was thinking! I’d take the whole front porch off and replace it with a period-appropriate two story porch – as well as replacing the three “new” windows with proper windows and a door. (Of course, if the existing porch roof is solid, it could be braced while the appropriate columns, trim and floors are installed below.)

      I hope we have a chance to see the interior.
