    Outstanding! I’ll take it exactly as it is. The half-inglenook is sort of strange, but the quality and condition of everything else–coupled with the price; the Midwest does it again!–more than compensates.

    Wow.. the first floor is so stunning. I would definitely back date that kitchen and the bathroom a bit, strip the paint off in the butler’s pantry and I’d call this just about perfect. That little nook off the kitchen with the bench and fireplace is adorable, as well as the bench and nook in the living area. So much beautiful woodwork and many original light fixtures!

    I am impressed with how much of the original house is here. I wasn’t expecting an interior quite so well preserved and decorated nicely. I love the nook off the kitchen and the split staircase with the stairs also going into the butler’s pantry! The entry hall makes a great first impression. The only thing I could pick on is the siding they now have on the exterior but that shouldn’t be to bad to bring back!

    The exterior is appealing, I was expecting the same from the interior. WOW was I pleasantly surprised. The interior is gorgeous. Some back dating of the kitchen and bath, as with so many houses the updates don’t suit the house for me. A few color changes here and there and this house would be a dream come true. The sleep porch, love it.
    Just one thing, what is that between the fireplace and built-ins? Just a bench? Is it for wood stacking?

      In Craftsman style houses, there are usually two benches in a little nook area on either side of a fireplace. It is called an Inglenook. It is strange that there is only one, probably changed at some time.

    It’s a wonderful home! I’d love a peek behind the replacement siding. I’m assuming it has narrow wood siding?
    Our house was built in 1906 and didn’t always have the best care. The last time we painted the exterior we had the painter use a new Sherwin William’s primer (after scraping) and the results were incredible. It looks cloudy when it’s applied but dries quickly and is hard as a rock. It’s been 5 years and it still looks great. Much cheaper than residing the house.

      Hi Sarah,
      Yes, we used that primer on the beams of a Craftsman house that we volunteer at. The beams had a lot of decay so they had to be built up and then a primer coat, and a sun resistant paint. They still look good through the winter but, we will see after a few years.
