    I would love to see what kind of lovely flooring might be hiding under the carpet!

      Me too. The woodwork is very nice, but with hardwood floors it would be killer. Stained glass in the stairway is very nice. I even like the kitchen in this one! Not too sure about that fireplace, looks like a later addition to me, but oh, well.

        Question, do you really think that’s a real stained glass window? Looks like either someone drew it on there or is a sticker. Looking at the old photo, there clearly was something there at one time.

          The “stained glass” is actually glass paint that can be peeled off. This was a trend in the late 90’s and early 2000’s, my mom and I did a few of these. We’ve seen a few examples of this on several houses in prior listings. You can always tell if it was paint by looking of mounds of darker color in the same area and spreading patterns, or long “pieces” that wouldn’t have breaks in the glass of odd shapes not typically found in regular stained glass.

            Agree 100%. And lookin at it on a big screen opposed to my iPhone I can see why I questioned it. I’d have to get rid of it. Even the sticker stained glass that is out there now is not to my taste. You think with the way we have high quality printers and Photos that they could make stick on film look like the real thing if you couldn’t afford the glass but wanted the look.

    The wood floors, big rooms and all the natural wood is wonderful. Glad to see the wood is not painted. The stain glass window is so pretty.
    The wall paper, for the most part and the boarder would have to go, in my opinion.
    Beautiful home.
    I wonder if there are wood floors under the carpet????

    I would watch a parade from that porch.

    The original porch was prettier (and naturally more appropriate) but I can’t find the photo of it now!

      I agree about the porch. You can see by the old picture what they changed. It’s always sad to see porches lose some of their details but considering they are exposed to the elements year after year and sometimes neglected, it’s not a surprise. It would be nice to see this more like the old picture though!

        yeah I was thinking that too. Looks like they left the railings but replaced the posts with doric columns. probably an early 20th century idea. Who knows, maybe they thought it was an “update” or like you said, rot.

    Beautiful inside, but the carpet and wallpaper would have to go. The ceiling in the bathroom is awesome!

    That looks like a drawing and faux stained glass window to me.
