    Not a bad house. Lots of potential. Great staircase and fretwork. Some rooms appear to have been treated poorly but that can be undone. The loss of fireplace in the front room is sad. I would pull down that brick and reinstall a mantel with over mantel etagere.

    Anyone else see the lone porch column in the basement? I wonder if that came from the side porch that appears to have been enclosed.

      Good eye on the missing fireplace! You can see the chimney through the roof on the old street view, now missing on the current pictures. With the cost of masonry, I’d guess the fireplace isn’t coming back any time soon, at least a masonry fireplace.

        Agreed. I’d probably install a fire place and ornamental insert for it temporarily until I had the funding to put it back.

      Given that there’s an old oil burner sitting in the shadows to the right of the furnace, I’ll bet that if you look in the attic you’ll see that they’ve removed the
      chimney to the roof deck and it’s still there. Unfortunately, if it’s vented an oil burner for years it’s probably had most of the mortar rotted out which is why it’s been abandoned. The fireplace itself is probably buried behind that Z-brick in the front room.

    Is it weird that I love stone basements? *grin*

    Wow, I’d put that last picture on a calendar! What a gorgeous setting, and a decent house that could be much improved as the above commenters noted.

    First, I love the old barn because old wooden barns and carriage houses are becoming increasingly rare. (here’s a highly ornamental albeit very faded example I photographed last month in Monmouth IL: https://www.flickr.com/photos/11236515@N05/48925550073/ )
    I noted that the entry door hardware is in the Roanoke Pattern by Peter F. Corbin & Co.. Fairly common for the period but it was also a very popular design. Nice to see a little fretwork remains around the staircase. Some art glass windows might have been expected too but they weren’t mandatory and many were removed during the time when all things Victorian fell out of favor. Nice to see pocket doors still remain. All-in-all, a pretty nice period home here.

      I’ve been to that area once (LaFollette) and drove a bit through the surrounding countryside. I totally agree with your statement both about the barns and the old homes. Very picturesque!

    Beautiful treed property, Pic 11 is a noteworthy piece of art, with the tree in the foreground with the sun shining through; absolutely beautiful. That is the greatest shot Ive seen in a long time. House is ok, but could use some sprucing up, as in remove wall between dining area and kitchen to open it up to a large kitchen with island. Also noticed the brick wall with absence of fireplace. Several of the rooms have noticeably low ceilings, small room with chandelier, kitchen, and small dining area. Would agree that its reasonably priced for all buildings and the acreage.

      AAAAck.. don’t do it. Don’t do it. Put the sledge hammer down. Don’t treat this old gem like a modern open floor plan. 😉

    Even though this era is not may favorite, there is something so charming about a Victorian with the front door on an angle. There are a couple in my town and they have definite appeal.
