    It needs work, but boy, the possibilities! I kinda like the purple stairs. I’d like to imagine, that the original owners, after a month of grey skies this time of year, decided to splurge on paint, and brighten things up a bit!

    I hope it doesn’t get torn down. The floors are amazing

    1900 Maybe Craftsmen

    Well I think it’s just awesome with so much potential & please no tear downs!! I like the rough in this diamond, gives it charm & character!! I’d really want the fireplaces back! This place is beautiful in the snow & I’d love to see it in summer!! The work needed would be well worth it to the right owner! I personally think that would be me, if only I had the $$, and even more so able to move to New Hampshire!!

    Probably livable as is (at least in the summer while you work on it). I think the tear down reference was in regard to the barn, which is probably in the category of “fall down” at this point.

    Oooof…the dreaded Double-Chimney Syndrome. My guess is that originally this house had a fairly massive (at least 10’x 10′ at its base) center chimney, one firebox each in hall, parlor, and rear kitchen (the last with exterior oven), and an undeveloped garret (attic) above. But with the increasing popularity of woodstoves for heat, the center chimney was removed to allow for a generous central stair to the second story that was then developed into bedrooms. One or two small chimneys were built for the new woodstoves, often with bricks recycled from the dismantled original center chimney (as here). Other than that, house seems fairly true to period, and date seems right.

    This looks livable while finishing putting the country charm back. LOVE the wide plank floors. I could see a huge open porch on the front. Needs a few rocking chairs . 😀

    Love the primitive rustic look. I would change very little in this house. Just fix what had to be done and live happy!

    Save that barn!!! Dismantle, not “tear down” and reconstruct using as much existing lumber as possible. Since it’s still standing, there must be lumber worth saving.

    Good thinking KEYLIME! My thought also.

    1900 Anything with old wood
    Very SW, FL

    Anyone have any thoughts / ideas what the little room is where all the insulation is hanging from ceiling/walls? From the outside looks like the room sticking out from house? Is it out of place, original room to the house? The woodwork inside it looks VERY old, kind of out of place with rest of house. I have no idea and wondered what others thought.
