    This home reminds me of an aunts house. I loved family reunions at her home, every room was amazing like this one including a room filled with windows.

    Someone buy this, turn it into OHD B&B!

    What a surprising, interesting, and beautiful interior. Hard to say how it started out, but if those Craftsman elements are changes, they sure are changes for the better. Wish we’d have a better look at the fireplace. I’m wondering if the strapping and hood elements are metal or wood or both. Such an impressive room. The South facing sun room is priceless! Amazing how those clerestory windows bring an explosion of light into a kitchen which would otherwise be an absolute cave.

    Kelly, I sure like that vintage electric stove for you. I don’t know the make and model, but the lines and design are clean and sleek and very stylish!

      I was looking at that stove too but thought it looked a bit more 1950’s/1960’s? than I want. And no oven door, got to keep an eye on what I’m burning without opening the stove door!

        Wellllll, that’s probably a deal killer I’m afraid. Oven doors didn’t start getting their windows until the 50’s. Also, electric ranges of earlier vintages are pretty rare to start; and you really would want one which was restored. Old wires carrying high voltages are rightly scary, (especially having been exposed to high heat for a long time). Best bet if you really want an early one is to save big and buy from a professional restorer. The plus side being that it would likely increase in value over the years maintained in good condition: though you would have to live without the oven window. I wouldn’t suggest risking it with a random find as such πŸ™‚

        If you lose your hesitation about cooking with gas, and look to a more recent period for your find, you’ll find all manner of GREAT stoves out there! The good ones are rock solid and will rarely ever have functionality issues.

          I’ve seen some 1940’s and ’50s with windows that looked not so 1960’s. πŸ™‚

          Tappan would be at the top of my list but they are so expensive, I doubt we’ll ever have an old stove like that. If a miracle happens and we do find one it would have to be totally rewired, not only am I gas paranoid but I’m old electric wire paranoid! We’ve been eyeballing new but old looking stoves, used Heartland’s under $1k have popped up locally (my husbands choice, no window) or a Summit that had decent reviews and had a slight “old style” look to it. Stoves are at the far end of our “to have/to do” list, unless something local is for sale at a killer deal. πŸ™‚

            I bought a Universal Electric to put in my home and decided to to not install it to have a bigger oven….it is the most beautiful Mint green and white stove with LEGS! I should have installed it and bought a wall oven! It now sits in my dining room and I dream of finding just the right little lake cottage or something to put it in…..or redoing my brand new kitchen!

            This house! I never expected β€œthat” on the inside of this! Love it!

        • We purchased a Heartland for our kitchen Reno. It looks like a 1930’s model. It is the ‘belle’ of our kitchen-ball! It has been the best investment. But…..no window. πŸ˜‰
          This property is truly gorgeous..the main home is so large and roomy, but cozy. Probably because of all that natural wood. The surrounding landscape is lovely.

    This house used to belong to my grandparents until the late 70’s. (I think) I used to love the living room and the beautiful staircase. When my grandparents sold the house they sold everything in it. That broke my heart. My grandfather built quite a bit of the furniture and the woven rugs were woven by my grandmother. Many, many memories in that house. I hope someone will buy it and love it like we did!

    My wife owns property near the same recreational area. There are several bridges and creeks that make up the OBed Wild Scenic River area, also close by. Nice for outdoors people.

    It is a bit of a mish mash and I love it! What a great house! I could see myself inside and out and being happy. And even a bit of snow. perfect.

    Wow–looking at the outside, I wasn’t expecting the inside! Love all the woodwork. It would be great to see the outside restored/repainted to more accurately reflect the style of the interior.
