    I set up link exchanges for the next few months but did not get around to verifying there is not writing on the back. Will do that eventually for this one. For now, the group and house are not related to each other.

    What’s going on? Heck if I know, yet. I don’t want to speculate in comments but something is definitely wrong (not Covid although I’m going to have to take a test just to be able to have my next round of tests.) I’ll continue to do my best with new posts, it’s just as I’m able for now. I appreciate your patience, understanding and well wishes.

      Take your time. Health first. Live can be very difficult at times. I just went through my own medical issues in 2019 with heart ablation surgery and inherited a stomach issue I finally got to the bottom of after a lots of suffering and ER hospital visits. On top of that, an enormous amount of funerals. I’m 42. You just never know with life.

      Your pause on posts will just allow me to go back through posts from many years ago I may have missed 🙂

      I just had my right knee replaced on the 18th. I had to have a COVID19 test within 3 days of surgery. Thankfully, it came back negative. I’ve been really careful about the 6′ rule, not going anywhere thats not necessary, wearing masks. I hope your tests come back positive for something that is easily taken care of! I suppose the dr has looked into Lyme Disease. A friend of mine was diagnosed with that last summer, very soon after a tick bite. She got into a research project, and is doing great now. When she first was diagnosed, she was really worn down, lots of severe aches, fever, brain fogginess (she and I do a lot of computer work on our job, and she couldn’t get her fingers to do what her brain wanted them to do, some mornings. Very scary! Her dr said, if she hadn’t seen the tick, and called him right away, her diagnosis would have been harder, as seeing that tick gave them something to start with on the diagnosis.
      I hope you are soon feeling better!
      The people in the house photo look so happy!

        I have had 2 knee replacements and 1 hip, that had to be done twice. It is a long recovery of a year but you should be better after 2 months. Work on flexibility and get out and walk as much as you can. It is a great surgery and once you get past the 1 year mark you should be back to full strength.

    East Dennis, MA

    Hope you are back to 100% ASAP, Kelly.

    This 1764 stone house on circa 13 acres is in Monkton, Maryland—so north of Baltimore and bit south of the Mason-Dixon Line just off Interstate 83. The home has six bedrooms and four baths for 3878 square feet and comes with outbuildings that include a smokehouse, a tool house, a garage, a four-stall barn, a corn crib… and an outhouse (does that count as a half bath 😱?). Bridge House retains much of its period 18th century woodwork—with random-width pine floors, nice paneling, and original cornices, moldings, and chair railings—to go along with six working fireplaces. It also has a heated saltwater swimming pool and a decent stream creating a U around the property. In wonderfully restored condition and with some really sweet stonework, the property lists at $1.15 million.

    Stay safe!

    1936 Cabin

    Greetings All!

    Here are a couple of elegant Massachusetts homes that have not been fussed with much at all, and are from the turn of the century:

    1912, Princeton, MA, 2,500,000

    From the listing: “”BRYN CORON” – Exceptional 32+- acre country estate w/ pastoral landscape, rolling woodlands, and a scenic pond abutting conservation land. …1875 cast iron wood stove”
    Elegant and comfortable home and property. Nicely cared for. Well done.

    1904, Wellesley, MA, 4,150,000

    From the listing “1904 Chapman and Frazer Shingle style residence on a 1.56-acre parcel in Wellesley Hills. Available for the first time in 50 years”
    Lots of nice details in another handsome house. I am fond of the cabinets in the kitchen. It is refreshing to see a couple of houses that do not seem to have been modernized so much, refreshing

    1936 Cabin

    A Modern from PA:

    1951, Pittsburgh, PA, 2,250,000

    From the listing: “Noted architect and curator A. James Speyer (1913-1986) was born in the Woodland Road district of Pittsburgh, which contains not only 19th-century gems but some of the city’s most exemplary modern houses. Among them is the Apt House, commissioned by Jerome Apt Jr. and Joan Frank Apt in 1951 and completed in 1953. After graduating from Carnegie Tech in 1934, where the Beaux Arts tradition was still the norm, Speyer traveled to Europe, encountering the Bauhaus movement and avantgarde architecture. Graduate studies in Chicago with Mies van der Rohe led further to the development of Speyer’s modern aesthetic. An echo of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater can be noted in the design elements and materials found in this masterwork, along with arches that could be a nod to H. H. Richardson’s Allegheny County Courthouse. The inspired design of this notable residence makes perfect use of its lovely, wooded setting. Approximately 1.5 acres with tennis court.”
    I went to Realtor to get a bit more information as my usual Zillow did not say much. I find the writing a bit confusing.
    Low slung Modern that appears to make good use of the site, meaning for me, I like the entrance is something you walk down into and then it opens up to the back for views of the wooded environment. I love the wall of brick for the fireplace and natural wood walls. Intriguing older kitchen appliances. Outside, I love the landscaping, this place reads as quiet to me. The arched garage doors compliment the fireplace. I would be very happy here.

    1895 PORTAGE, OH

    1882 Victorian: Pemberville, Ohio, $499,900.
    Usually I post houses from up-state New York because that is where my wife and I hail from. This week, however, I’ve found something different. I showed this one to my wife and she asked where it was—eight miles down the road from us. Because everything is locked down in Ohio, we both rode our bicycles past to take a look, and we’ve driven past this beauty numerous times. My only complaint is how close Linwood passes to the middle branch of the Portage River. I’m not sure why folks around here call Portage a river. Where I grew up we called waterways that size creeks (pronounced “crick”). Portage doesn’t really seem like a river until it gets closer to Erie. Anyway, when the Portage overflows her banks, Linwood floods, which happens nearly every spring. The property on the west side of Linwood, where the house sits, is well enough above the flood zone, though a Jeep, or some other 4X4 may be requisite to leave the property when this happens because the driveway lets out onto the lower section of the road.

    I don’t see any interior photos of the barn, but there is a shot from the observation access on the roof (not sure what that’s called), and the photo features one of those old Ben Franklin lightning rods. With the exception of the plumbing, the hardware and fixtures on the first floor appear to be period. Oh, if only my wife and I could take down that elusive grand prize with which the Mega Millions so teases us.

      Lovely house! I really love all the door hardware. the current owner has my taste too-I’d not change a thing here. I used to travel from Ft WAyne, where I used to live, to Lockport, NY, where I live now, and am from. I remember this area of Ohio very well. All those huge, flat farm fields that made the drive along 80/90 so freaking boring, the signs for little towns that I never had the time to go through. And, all those “rivers” disguised as cricks! Yup, thats an original Western NY word-crick! I’ll never forget the first time I took a drive around Ft Wayne. After 25 minutes, I knew where the rich people lived, where the bad part of town was, where the old houses were, downtown, and 2 malls. And, that crik they call the Maumee River! Thats NOT a river. Not until it gets to the Toledo area, and is ready to go into Lake Erie.
      Anyway, I love this old farmhouse. So pretty, and it looks as if its in fantastic condition!

      A wonderful farmstead with many of its old bits intact! The owner was from New York State as well: James Henry Forrest (1839-1915), born at Goshen, he came to Ohio as a child, served in the Civil War, had 3 wives and 14 children.

    1936 Cabin

    A few from the 19th century in PA and one from Ohio:

    1855, Lewisburg, PA, 695,000

    From the listing: “The opportunity to own such an exceptional historic home is rare. This well known Gothic Revival was built by Dr Justin Loomis, the 2nd President of the University of Lewisburg. Beautiful woodwork, 11ft ceilings and original light fixtures compliment this recently restored 6 bedroom home in the Lewisburg Borough. The hardware and doorknobs brought back from England by Loomis remain. A curved walnut staircase spans all 3 finished levels of this 3,700sf home.”
    I would love to wander around it this one.

    1825, Doylestown, PA, 574,900

    Stone home that got me from the first view of the front with its hefty shutters and triangular diamond pane window nestled into the attic, beautifully simple house with beautiful wood fireplace surrounds and paneling, another of stone and a surprising (for me) fireplace that is fitted with shutters.

    https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/2954-Mill-Rd-Doylestown-PA-18902/8980377_zpid/?utm_source=email&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=emo-SendToFriendHDP-image&rtoken=99768f9d-3b7e-48cc-8809-4b863c4c245c~X1-ZUveo4kiegi2h5_46au8

    1850, Ironton, OH, 145,000

    This one looked familiar to me from the opening shot, but as I made my way through the house, I wasn’t sure. I like the tall interior rooms and the windows with their shutters, fireplaces, simple kitchen, lovely staircase-handsome

    Swiss Chalet in the Poconos

    1925, Mount Pocono, PA, 799,000

    From the listing: “Chalet du Soleil. This house, fondly named for it’s sun-dappled, tree-top views, is an elegant example of a Swiss Alpine influenced home built during the ‘Arts & Crafts’ era. The house is listed on The National Historic Register for its architectural wood, stucco, and stone design. The rustic setting is a perfect summer, or year round home, nestled in the heart of the Pocono Mountains.”

    Now something lovely and modern from California to top it all off:

    1960, Elk, CA, 1,700,000

    From the listing: “quintessential Northern California mid-century coastal contemporary residence that remains fully intact as the architect intended. It was designed by Lee Aaron Ward who apprenticed at Taliesin West with famed American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright.”

    My eyes are twinkling reading that! Opening shot is pure California coastal drama. Another modern that keeps its street side humble and then opens up on the private side. Rustic beach exterior and the interior is tall and elegant.

    1875 Victorian Farmhouse
    Lancaster, PA, PA

    Well, Kelly needs to create a new search category: Insane Asylum! This is a condo in a former insane asylum (assuming the sign on the glass above the door is accurate), listed at 360K with a build date of 1903 in semi-famous Leadville, CO. It’s a sober substantial brick building befitting such an institution. The condo itself is nice enough, but I’m really posting this because I’ve never seen adaptive residential reuse of an insane asylum before. https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/1000-Hemlock-St_Leadville_CO_80461_M29934-62633?cid=dsp_forsale_gdn_retarget_dynamic_80461_052020&cid=dsp_forsale_gdn_retarget_dynamic_c_092019&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI3LHTvNvb6QIVSL6zCh139QRnEAEYASADEgK9k_D_BwE#photo0

    https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/5-Alexander-St_Charleston_SC_29401_M68355-26482#photo1

    There are two Simon Jude Chancognie single houses built within three years of each other on a relatively large plot that the french merchant had purchased from the Gasden family. Both have excellent Federal details and side piazzas typical of the style. The house is a stone’s throw from the Gaillard Center, Charleston premier performing arts center.

      John, this is a nice post. You have helped me to understand this unique architecture. Southern exposure for the breezes and northside manners for privacy on narrow lots. Very interesting. I also like the newel posts and is there anything you can tell about their design?

        Charleston, SC

        Tour guides tell overheated vacationers in drawn carriages that houses were side-facing due to city taxes being assessed based on street frontage. This isn’t true. The best explanation I’ve heard relates to taking advantage of the height of the neighboring house in shading the side garden and to provide a means to open every room to the prevailing sea breeze. The main newel actually looks mid-19th century to me.

      Your photo of the home from the late 50’s reminds me of how poverty led to the survival of so many old buildings — they weren’t in “desirable” areas which meant they weren’t razed in the name of progress. Sad but true.

    Some of the early readers will remember this home in Hopkinsville, KY. It actually had it’s own blog for an incredibly short while, something happened and it went into foreclosure. Years later, appears it was demolished. It was a planbook design but don’t remember who. Took it off the site years ago because I’m stupid like that.

    1935 cape with A&C elements
    Malverne, NY

    Ever come across a home where you want to live in the basement? (pic 56 on) Way too much $$ for me at 4.5M but someone had a lot of fun and money. Not an old house (1987) but well designed gated estate on four acres featuring 7 bedrooms/8 baths in the Main house, a two bedroom/1 bath guest house with full kitchen, and a pool house with full kitchen and bath. Thought others here would get a kick out of seeing this one.

      I saw this house on a news app and the article said that the basement was like a Christmas Village.

      Vast, 1%er cribs like that usually give me the creeps. That one is really quite nice; if grossly overscaled, as they nearly always are. The basement is interesting to see; but for me, personally, the marquis on the home theater says it all:

      DOUBLE FEATURE
      MARY POPPINS
      and
      THE EXORCIST

      Heheheh. Thanx Pete.

    Guess it’s my day for underground living. Another odd home. Subterranean 15, 000 sq ft concrete & steel rectangular shaped doomsday bunker in the middle of Las Vegas. Pool, spa, waterfall, trees, guest house, BBQ, fountain & 500 linear feet of floor to ceiling illuminated murals of landscapes. All Furnishings & 1 year of caretaker & upkeep are included. I would hope so at 18 Million!! Some people just have too much money. Wonder what was done to jump the price from 1.4 Mil in 2014.

    In the Town of Butternuts NY, a nice site on the creek with the shell of an 1890ish project house. An old photo shows what it was before a fire and neglect. The barn is older but has lost its cupola. Only $45k.

    How sad that what was once a very impressive house before the fire and I suspect the neglect followed after has been reduced to a shell.

      Too much so much of the 1880 was erased from this. Though I would gather that fireplace tile might be one of the few things left, and the whole mantel around it updated years later.

        I have an appointment for next week to go and see it! I will hopefully know more then. The real estate agent said that it has been vacant for several years. It has no parking. The lot is just big enough for the building with very little green space around it. The building behind it is 3 feet away. From what little I could gather it sounded like it needed more work than the current owner was willing to put into it for his/her purposes. However, I’m not certain what those purposes were.

    The century old Brisbane Mansion near the Jersey shore burned and was demolished Saturday. It was given to the state in the 1940’s and converted to a hospital, and horribly vandalized since it closed in 2005. The 1200 acre estate also included Allaire Village, a preserved old iron town which is a popular school trip.

    1875 Limestone house
    Langeais, Loire Valley,

    Dear all, I’m glad to be back here after 2 months of lockdown here in France. Oddly enough I only check OHD when I’m at work (bad, i know)… and now i’m back full-time at work from today! I really like to scroll through the posts and pics on a regular screen, not a smaller laptop’s, and even less so on an iPad or phone.

    Anyway, Kelly i send you my best wishes for your recovery.

    And now I’m sharing an expensive (1m € price tag) thatched-roof long house from Normandy. Not many pics, but beams / old stone / old floor tiles galore! https://www.emilegarcin.fr/fiches/4-40-26_34068230/chaumiere-a-vendre-proche-de-pont-l-eveque.html

    I’m adding this former church building, very interesting as it’s both rustic (stones, vaulted room) and elegant (see parquet floors) in the South of France near Avignon. Price tag 975,000 €: https://www.emilegarcin.fr/fiches/4-40-26_30565429/maison-historique-a-vendre-a-villeneuve-les-avignon.html

    A couple of days ago someone posted a couple of listings in France and, well, I must admit the post took me down a rabbit hole of an entirely different listing from the realtor. I both thank and blame that original poster for hours of distraction.

    This is now in my favorite listings of all times category even though there aren’t any interior shots. Yes I know the price is “on request” and I assume it is unbelievability high but this place is so special. It’s a stone house (likely damaged in war and then restored) surrounded by acres of magnificent gardens. The gardens ‘earned the official classification of “Remarkable Garden” and inclusion in the European Heritage Network’ and with one look you’ll see why.

    I did further research and found out this is Jardins de Kerdalo. The gardens themself are some of the best post-war gardens in France.

    So enjoy seeing this special home.

    I have walked past this house countless times, and always wondered what it looked like inside. I am definitely not disappointed.

    The money for this mansion came from a large stock embezzlement scheme, which was one of the first of its kind in the country.
