    1897 Queen Anne Colonial
    Cadiz, OH

    Kudos to the agent/photographer for “getting” what appeals most to old house lovers and including these period details in the listing photos. This home appears to be remarkably intact inside as well as looking airy and open. At the time, the formerly compartmentalized earlier Victorian era homes were changing to more modern layouts after 1900. After looking several times, I’ve concluded there’s very little I would consider changing here if it were mine. I also love the Dutch Colonial (Gambrel roofed) carriage house and would want a matching potting/gardening shed built to match. Rare to find a house so unspoiled and unaltered these days.

    I agree with John. Aside from the addition of a couple bathrooms, and remodeling of the kitchen this house appears to be largely intact. This was clearly intended to be a large middle class home for a large family. There’s nothing ostentatious here – just a very practical and well-built family home with all the classic touches of the period. Guessing that the original owner must have had a bunch of kids. Seeing the servant’s buzzer is a reminder that at the turn of the 20th century even middle class families often had help. I’m thinking that attic bedroom may have been for live in help.

      I’m kind of liking the kitchen, although some minimal backdating wouldn’t hurt…and three and a half bathrooms seems abundant, especially for the era. All told, with some period-appropriate wallpaper, she’d be good to go, imo…

    I was born in Connecticut and sometimes think of returning there. This would be a great place for sure…

    So happy you found a listing with more pictures Kelly! this house truly is a gem. Pardon me while I go back to looking at each photo more closely.

    That’s my kind of time capsule. What a wonderful home. May it always remain so.

    So! This house is a keeper! I’d keep everything about it except the kitchen addiitons like the sink cabinet and the vinyl floors. The sink can be replaced with the old time one that should be there. We could do cabinetry that happily coexists or use the free standing single sink on legs. Slate floor in the kitchen, I think. Send off that fabulous stove for refurbishment. Vinyl is a personal pet peeve so that’s the first thing I eliminate in any house I see. Historical or otherwise. The floors are in nice shape and most of the light fixtures were original so they stay too. The plumbing fixtures are just right… the list goes on. This is a practical old house with all the things I would want and none of the useless parlors etc that are so common in the larger homes. I would probably do some serious thinning to the greenery in the front and add bursts of floral color instead to brighten things up. The carriage house would be a great little studio once it were made sound and warm. A garage would be required but if the city doesn’t want a new one the carriage house could be that and maybe the top floor would be the fiber studio. I am totally flexible. Ha! Ha! I really wouldn’t have to flex much with this rare home.

    I had no idea I would love this so much when I got inside! Wow, what an absolute treasure! The close-ups of the stove controls are intriguing; I wish there was a picture of the whole thing.

    This beautiful house is within walking distance of the Mark Twain House and Museum.

    Such a beautiful home! I really love all of the built-ins and the fact that the majority of the wood is unpainted.
