    I love the idea of fruit and nut trees.

    I’m digging the pink. I’d probably just paint the trim a darker complementary shade and leave the pink as is.

    The fruit and nut trees are an added bonus. The house is of a fairly standard type of the Queen Anne style and looks to be a bit later than 1890. (the oval beveled glass mirrors on the mantel were more closely associated with the Colonial style which was more popular in the late 1890’s to early 1900’s) Seems like there is more interior fretwork above the staircase but barely seen in the photos. There also appear to be at least two transom stained glass windows. Overall, with the outbuilding, fruit and nut trees, and large, almost one acre lot, this property has potential.

    Is the siding, (pink) slanting to lower on the right? That looks odd.

    I like the pink too! A lovely home overall and would look amazing at Christmas

    This is my hometown! I’ve been in this house many times, it belongs to friends. Beautiful house on a stretch on Main Street with many painted ladies on each side! Great historical neighborhood with lots to do and see within walking distance – including dining, antique shops, public school system, hospital and doctor offices. Our little stretch of Main Street is just like stepping back to when times were less rushed and more appreciated!

      Zillow shows this house and property have been on the market for over a year. Any idea of what might be a problem? Do they have a water connection to city water and/or city sewer or, does this neighborhood have individual water wells and private septic systems? Looks like a new roof is in order and bright colors can always be changed (as well as wallpapers) but after checking into the town’s features, (has a small hospital) it seems appealing. Cadiz reminds me somewhat of Carlisle, between Lexington and Maysville.

      • Let me also mention Interstate 24 runs through Trigg County. There is a large area of protected land between the two lakes that is a hunter/fishman/campers heaven!

      • John – the house was for sale privately for several months due to a death, before turning it over to a realtor. Our main street is a trove of historic homes, as well as is downtown Cadiz. It’s in city limits with sewer/water. Our school system is one of the best! I work in the ER at the critical access 25 bed hospital, where we also have acute/swing bed accommodations specialty clinics, rehab, and outpatient surgery. We are a farming community that has become a hotspot for tourism, vacations and retirement. Our two deep man-made lakes and brand new bridges are gorgeous! And to top it all off – we have a nationally recognized COUNTRY HAM FESTIVAL every October (the town is over the top with lots of concrete pig statues in various costumes and paint!) I love my town if you can’t tell!

          Thanks for the added information, tadpaula. I’ve spent a considerable length of time in Streetview looking at everything that is available in the community. It is impressive for its size. I noticed the nearby lakes as well and the community Hospital-both add to the appeal of Cadiz as a place to call home. We are like almost everyone else these days…basically placing ourselves under house arrest until the “all clear” sounds. Seems like that day could still be pretty far off but best to take things one day at a time as everyone else is doing. The City of Cincinnati, Ohio is also proud of their pork heritage. In the first half of the 19th century there were so many pork processing plants in “Porkopolis” that it was as common a name for the town as Cincinnati was back then: https://www.greatamericancountry.com/places/local-life/porkopolis-cincinnatis-pork-producing-past Here’s one of the many colorful pig statues I photographed around Cincinnati: (in the Price Hill neighborhood) https://www.flickr.com/photos/11236515@N05/7423821708/in/album-72157630245353562/ When and if life ever gets back to something called normal, perhaps the long awaited sale of our house will occur. Cadiz and this house are serious relocation prospects.

    Cadiz has an awesome little burger joint called Farrell’s. My ex and I would drive down there from Grayson Co. KY just for the burgers. Take them to Lake Barkley and sit near the water and have lunch. Better times.

    Too bad there are no pictures of the barn and greenhouse.

    Great little house! While I see some things that I would change as far as colors, stripping paint, etc., the great thing is it looks intact for the most part and doesn’t appear to have any wonky remodeling!

    Newly relisted with a price of $79,900 (!!!) making this one of the best old house deals in Kentucky, IMO.

  10. There are some really good photos on this website:


    I’ve fallen in love with this house warts and all.
