    Oh wow what a house!! The outside is one of the prettiest ever and the inside is too. How cool to relax in a hot tub with the fireplace burning brightly❤️

  4. Such an Exquisite house, a little dark but oh this would be my choice overall the ones I’ve viewed over the last year…

    So much house for so little money(compared to where I live, but not really for the area). All neat as a pin inside and out.

  6. It seems as though we are missing some first floor pictures? (living room, the rest of the front hall) Some really great lighting and back staircase! I would be quite happy with this home!

    This house is stunning! I love the woodwork and fireplaces. First thing I’d do is remove all of those fireplace screens (except for this one https://www.oldhousedreams.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/23-1721rebeccast.jpg) and paint all the bright white ceilings softer tones more 1880s appropriate.

    A lovely home with an exterior that takes one’s breath away. The colour is simply glorious.

    What a beauty! She’s a little out of my “low cost of living” Georgia price range, but she is gorgeous! Love the fireplace tiles and the tub next to the fireplace.

    The dining room is my favorite, and I love the back view of the house. It must be glorious in the summer!

    Beautiful stonework! If it were closer to Niagara Falls I’d say it was Medina Sandstone. Gorgeous interior! The details are wonderful!

      It looks like a sort of brown granite or ruddy purple marble! If so, it could nearly withstand anything we throw at it. By 1890, it became apparent that brownstone was a poor choice for Romanesque buildings. It defoliates with the freeze/thaw. American Architects started finding interesting alternative stone for castle building.

    Cool exterior stonework, great woodwork, *love* the stained glass windows, the pantry’s tiled floor is great along with the fireplaces’ tiles, etc, etc. Quite a house! And a whole lot of house with tons of character for the asking price.
