    I want this so badly it hurts. Looking at the aerial view, it even checks that final box of being in the middle of farm fields far away from “civilization.” “deep sigh”

    So so sweet inside and out. We’ll have that great front porch fixed in no time. Back porch, too. Love it up! I’d take it!

    i think it’s less a pass-through (no counter on the bottom) than a way for the cook to be/feel less isolated when they are in the kitchen and guests/family in the dining-room…

    It’s the “open floor plan” feel that so many people love. I hate it personally. I think differently. I don’t wanna hear kitchen noises or other undesirable odors from the kitchen when I’m entertaining guests or trying to relax and hear the irritating noise of a dishwasher etc. First thing I would do is close it back up. I also don’t want everyone hanging around in the kitchen. That’s what couches and chairs are for in the other rooms. I like the idea of a large open doorway between rooms (not the kitchen) and being able to close the doors or portieres (if you have them) should I want it to feel more intimate or preclude a draft in the winter. It’s actually quite amazing how much air a curtain in a doorway can hold back. I’ve replicated very elaborate doorway drapes with frieze and dado decoration and find it quite useful.

    This house has really nice potential. Nice staircase and woodwork. I would also love to buy it and bring it back to its original state.

      One of the reasons I love old houses is the separateness of rooms. In my modern home, I have put in partitions in a couple of areas. I like the private feel of it.

    I recognize this house! My dad and his family lived there for a few years in the 1960s. Small world, right? It’s cool to see some pictures of the interior. Hopefully it gets a proper restoration.

    Please someone save her. This house could be beautiful with some restoration.

    I really want a house with a large bathroom. I have only seen this in certain homes and first in my Great Aunts home. She had 7 kids. Was wonderful sitting in there as a child reading. Don’t know why. I just loved the big bathroom. There’s so much about this house that sings. Hope it goes to an owner with vision of the past.

    I showed the listing to my dad. He said that other than the kitchen, the house hasn’t changed much since he was a kid.
