Built in 1895, a gorgeous Victorian Home like this does not come up for sale everyday. This home is the historic Dooley House. Own a piece of history and step back in time to enjoy a slower pace of life. Outside living abounds, and you will love the charming wrap around front porch, balcony, deck and patio. Inside the large rooms, hardwood flooring, and wooden ceilings are reminiscent of a home of this quality. Downstairs you have a large foyer, formal parlor, and great room. You could use one room for a home office or additional bedroom if needed. The kitchen has been upgraded and will be the hub of the home with a center island large enough for stools, tiled back splash, stylish stainless appliances, and a dining area. The master is on the main level and has a full bath with a shower, two closets, a sitting area and a fireplace. The large laundry room is also on the main level. Upstairs there are 4 nice sized bedrooms, two with bay windows, a full bath, and a large hallway. Don't need this many bedrooms? Wouldn't it be amazing to work from home in a room with a balcony?

    I was pleasantly surprised by the interior. Looks like it’s still a work in progress, but coming along nicely. I like the kitchen and the fact that they’re fellow MN Vikings fans.

    George F Barber homes are my favorites. I wish just a little less updating had occurred though.

    The wood ceilings take my breath away! Beautiful home, as is expected from a Barber!

  6. I like the way they left the plaster above the wall oven, and installed the surrounds around the appliances. It has a sense of solidity rather than looking sad, faded or tired. Great job on stripping the black paint off of the wood floors and treads, no easy task. All around nice work!

  7. I was not expecting the interior to be as well kept as it was nor quite as many updates.. good and not so good..But a lot of lovely home still left to restore back to its original state..The wood ceilings are gorgeous…I don’t see a need for two backyard patios but to each his own..On the street view most of the houses going towards town were nicely done..Making the neighborhood a very desirable place to live.. Painted it’s original colors and a little landscape will make this home an eye opener..

    This house is a block south of me, and I’ve watched its ups & downs for 10 years. Sadly, due to ill health, the current owner is selling for barely what has been put into it. The eastern mid-section sill had deteriorated to dangerous condition and required replacement. The HVAC system is all new. The former kitchen was, in present parlance, a ‘hot mess’. The comment on ‘two patios’ is due to later purchase of a rear adjoining abandoned lot. There once was a charming ironwork fence along the street sides, visible in older photographs held by our county museum.
    While many locals would have preferred a ‘restoration’ rather than ‘renovation’ approach had been taken, especially in relation to the exterior and its historic palette, far worse results were facing the property in other hands. The E-W street view is perpendicular to walking distance downtown which is N-S.
    FYI this is NOT the “Dooley” house. But I don’t fault the realtor because resources quote the same error. In reality the “Dooley” house was a smaller dwelling immediately east on the corner of S. Manning & E. Franklin, shown on 1911 Sanborn Maps.

        Great news…..as you’re aware the property sold today – for above it’s asking price. I’m going to presume OHD played a serious role in this sale.

            As soon as I have an answer to your questions I’ll alert you….I’m curious myself. A neighbor may be stroking me, but they claim two of the highest bidders said they discovered the property on OHD.

                Don’t feel terribly bad. You had a couple of things working against you. Number one of course is the current nationwide housing shortage for buyers. Number two, and perhaps more importantly, is that Anderson is within commuting distance to Greenville SC. Greenville is booming, and prices going through the roof and beyond. On average 80% of recent house sales in Anderson have been to Greenville based buyers. Plus that was a lot of in-town house & land for the price. The neighborhood concern is the purchase was made by ‘flippers’, which happened to the two residences immediately west. So next time you see a property in Anderson that appeals…..jump on it ASAP!

                I’ve been recently informed it is back on the market today. So if still interested, strongly suggest you immediately contact the realtor.

            Sorry to say, but right now I’m clueless. I wrote the owner’s son this morning about when they were going to clear out the house. I’ll check around and let you know what I learn.
            There was scuttlebutt gossip about an on-site bidding war between a flipper and a residential buyer.
