    Well some of the rather unfortunate updates would have to be dealt with but there’s so much goodness still here. I’d love to have this affordable little place in Kansas and fix it up.

    This home seems to want to get out of it’s plastic shell they have wrapped it in over the years. So glad they couldn’t hide that glorious newel post! There is so much potential in this home.

    Can someone here explain how the drop ceilings could be replaced? Lovely light in the home!

      My eyes went right to those ceilings !

      Do you mean the ones in the metal frames or the ones without the frames? The metal frame ones are crazy easy to take down. Very light weight. The others may actually be glued to the ceilings. I just sold a 1918 craftsman which had them and they were original to the house. There may be some plaster repair, but they just scrape right off most of the time.

    At least one great fireplace is still there. Nice chimney! I’ll bet this place started out pretty fancy.

      That cool chimney was the first thing I noticed. Second was since it was a sunny day, the stained glass was able to ‘throw’ its colors.

    Woah, full on 1970’s carpet flashbacks going on here! I like the stained glass.

    I agree…….would hopefully have some decent wood floors under all of that carpet. Would have to see the reason for those awful drop ceilings. It has a lot of potential though. Love the stained glass!!

    Cadiz, OH

    It would be hard to imagine the opulent period details inside without seeing the photos. Obviously, when everyone around the country who owned an old Victorian house was seeking to modernize and tone down everything Victorian, the owners of this home did not want to be left out. At least on some level it appears they were conscious of the great craftsmanship of the past so unlike many others, they did not remove all of the period details. The challenge today for buyers of this type of house is how far to go to recapture the original Victorian appearance of the house? One would almost have to locate an early photo of the place to be certain of a faithful restoration. The diamond paned sash oddly attached to the porch if from this house, suggests it may have been updated around 1910. In the end, the next owner may want to accept some of the new with the old and not go to heroic lengths to make it look authentically Victorian. At the reasonable selling price, a fair amount of work could be put into the house without breaking the bank. Interesting combination of period and newer details in this example.
