    This house has a lot of potential; you can see that it has not been too long ago that it was in top shape. The Google street view is from 2013, and it appears to have a newer metal roof, so hopefully the water infiltration is over. Hopefully the electric and HVAC are not obsolete, that can be a deal breaker on old homes…

    Ah, what a beauty! I sure hope the kitchen they demo’ed was an 80’s update and not the original – although it looks like the old sink is still sitting in the middle of the room…?

      Just a sink, don’t think it’s an original cabinet/sink (looks like a modern stainless sink.)

    Cadiz, OH

    The 1890 date seems to be accurate. Italianates by the early 1890’s had pretty much been superseded by the Queen Anne style but here the configurations of corner towers (without conical roofs) and Queen Anne style albeit square porches bridge the stylistic gap between the old Italianate and the newer Queen Anne style. I’m pleasantly surprised to see so much naturally finished woodwork inside although most of the floors are carpeted or covered with linoleum while at least one floor is painted. The house does need some TLC but looks, as others have commented, that most of the photos indicate mostly cosmetic work. Seems reasonably priced for what is offered. The exterior porches would be costly to replicate so because they appear to be in good condition, that is definitely a plus.

    An unusually fun transitional exterior! The porches, while attractive enough, are likely 20th century replacements which may or may not look similar to the originals. The proportions here are a bit amatuerish, and the boxy posts don’t read as either Italianate or Queen Anne. The roof of the front porch projects past the side wall of the house in a manner that suggests it is an afterthought. Perhaps the porches were added when the interior was last updated, likely around 1990.

    The interior woodwork really makes this house shine; a little TLC would make this place even more of a jaw-dropper than it already is.

    It’s a shame to see the water damage, I hope the roof and leaky spots have been addressed. It looks like someone to good care of this home for a long time.
