    1901 Folk Victorian
    Chestatee, GA

    The build date on record is 1900, (yada all the why) between one to two and a half decades older than that based on the exterior design of the structure, interior woodwork and mantels.

    I say this so much that I sound like a parrot, but this house has a ton of potential. I really like the rural setting, and can picture this house with it’s rebuilt porches.

    Looks like a worthy restoration project with the bonus of 2.5 acres. I’m glad all the original windows haven’t (yet) been replaced; looks like some of the sashes were taken out and stacked in various rooms. I also think I can see a ghost outline of a former front porch in the bricks. The upstairs balcony porch can provide some stylistic clues for reconstructing a proper period porch if an archival photo of the original doesn’t exist. Bathroom and kitchen updates may be appropriate here. Streetview shows what appears to be a very rural location.

    Love that fireplace, but the kitchen, not so much.

    I like this one. I’m pleased to see that the drop ceilings were all removed. I wonder it the barn and silos nearby are part of this property?

    All this and less than 20 miles from Lake Michigan. Plenty of room on the property for a large sea-going boat to winter.

    This was the 60 acre farm of Hiram Bailey (1828-1893) from the 1860’s until his death, and the home was built during his ownership, probably about 1880. Bailey was from New York state, he had 2 daughters and a ne’re-do-well son, and served as the Town Clerk and Supervisor of Monterey Township in the 1870’s.
    It’s a fine old farmhouse that deserves preservation, at least!

    I love the gorgeous red brick exterior as well as the land on which it sits. Lots of room for a garden, certainly, and I’d have an attractive fence or rock wall added around the entire property.

    I like the rural setting as well. The house definitely needs it’s porches back to give it balance.
