    Not for the faint of heart? Naw, it’s just a diamond in the rough!! I love this house & the way it is now, the way I see it, makes it easier to restore! Looks to be a pretty lot too, just needs the right owner!

    I love the random vibrant purple window trim in the attic, and go ahead and fire the hate my way: I love that kitchen wallpaper. (The kitchen with the green stove, not the kitchen with the white stove) Some like their kitchens minimalist, some like them with every possible feature jammed in and seven different types of grill popping out of the countertops – I like my kitchens with cheery wallpaper depicting food.

    When this house was being loved, I’m guessing it was loved a lot. We’re seeing a few faint shadows of a *lot* of personality. I bet someone was just proud as could be of her pink fridge that coordinated with the walls and floor tile. Hopefully it gets restored by someone who intends to give it another century full of pride, personality, and memories. I don’t know, I just feel like out of all the many beautiful homes posted here, this one would give all the others a run for their money when it came to telling stories that would make you smile. If only it could talk!

      When I bought my house, it came with a pink refrigerator. A friend offered to help me paint it white. I couldn’t understand why. People pick the damnedest things to worry about.

    A lovely setting for a home that could be made charming and full of light. I don’t know why there are two kitchens. I do know that the room with the purple window frame would be my beautiful bedroom…float-y white curtains, floors scrubbed and waxed, a jug of wildflowers and a quilt on the bed. I’d add a huge comfy chair in the corner by the small window, for snuggling in to read on a snowy afternoon.

      Why are there two kitchens? So the homeowner can have both a gas stove and an electric one, of course. But seriously, I think this house has great potential and I don’t see anything that would scare me away from tackling it, at that price. I like it.

    I hope the perfect buyer will come along and give this poor old house a second chance. To live amidst those gorgeous trees proudly wearing their autumn colours would be a treat for anyone.

      Those trees are wonderful. It’s not a large property but it certainly looks to be an engaging one. I’m going to run around and plant lots of Goldenrod….for starters. Asters. Lots of them, too. Mums….by the front door.

    A treasure indeed for a lucky person, hopefully who believes in restoration rather than remuddle, to have the opportunity to reclaim all this cute house has to offer. Virtually untouched which is a big plus, light filled and what could be a very nice yardscape.

      At .23 acres, not a lot to work with. Also unfortunately, tucked at a fork in two roads, makes it less desirable. The home itself is an unpolished gem but wish it’s location were different.

  6. But, seriously though. At the risk of sounding dumb. Why two kitchens??????? I’ve seen it in other houses also.

      So everyone may have their own reason, but…. my husband comes from a large Italian family and all his relatives had two kitchens. In the “old days” when there were large families, a four burner stove and one refrigerator just didn’t do it, especially for all the frequent family gatherings they had…. so….. a second kitchen that could be used. And it was also assurance that when the electricity goes out, the family could still cook, one is usually gas and the other electric.
      Another answer, is that they kept Kosher and had two separate kitchens rather than two of everything in the same kitchen. Like I mentioned, there could be lots of reasons, but those are the few I know of!

    Flipped. But really, not bad although the glaring white is a bit bright.

    I think it looks like a brand new house. You can take that any way you’d like 🙂
