    Love this house inside and out. The tower does need to attended to. Oak Ridge of Manhattan Project fame is nearest large town. Very cool.

    Very nice. I’d have loved to see a better view of the staircase – the brief glimpse seen in the entry hall photo is intriguing…

    The wrap around mantle is beautiful. I don’t think I’ve seen one before.

    The corner tower balcony porch is outstanding although it looks a bit small. Nice looking house, overall.

      Good to hear from you, John! We missed your comments and insight. Hope you are doing well!

      It’s quite a charming home with some great details, the tower being one of the more prominent features.

    I want a GoPro drone! Fun!

  10. I want it for the tower, the tub, and the window seats. Also it is only about 2 hours from some of my family who are currently 6+ hours away, so that would be a bonus. I need to buy a lottery ticket.

    We toured this house last year when we were house-hunting. The town of Oliver Springs is a little bit of a ghost town, but it definitely has potential. There is a historical society that seems to be actively restoring some of the buildings in the small downtown area, which is good. It’s true that the exterior of the house needs attention. (At the time we looked) There were several rotted wood areas. The inside of the house is very interesting, with lots of nooks and crannies. It feels a little like the old west downstairs in the main (very large room) and definitely has the Victorian doll house vibe throughout. There are some weird floor plan things. The first floor has a large laundry room with a toilet in it. It seemed out of place. On the second floor, it is easy to get lost. My husband and I could not find our realtor for a bit. It was just room upon room – walking through bedrooms to get to other rooms kinda thing. The room with the tower view on the third floor is really special. I envisioned it as the perfect place for an office. Overall, this will be a wonderful house for the next owners to explore and restore. It’s really large and has a nice view of the mountains.
