    Old post with a few more photos. I guess it didn’t sell.

      Thanks for confirming a previous listing. Someone had shared in on Facebook and I commented that I believed it had sold, I’ll have to go back and correct that. Lots of potential with this one, IMO. I also appreciate you re-sharing-maybe some of the enthusiastic fans on FB will take an interest in it. I’ll re-link to this post.

      Thanks for adding the old post of this lovely house, Kelly. The photos are excellent. I hardly recognized it as being the same house. Good photos are everything surely in real estate. It is quite impressive on the outside and has great potential on the inside. I like it.

    Anticipointment here. The outside is just yummy and piqued all my old house fantasies, but the inside doesn’t quite meet the expectations. Nevertheless I would jump on this property if I were fortunate enough to be in the market for a house in Wyoming, IL!

    1936 Cabin

    Bethany, I agree, but then I saw the fireplaces and I am real curious about that kitchen with its metal trim paneling. I also like a glassed in porch that you can switch out to screens in the summer. I lived in a lovely arts and crafts house in Saratoga Springs that had a front porch with screens to switch out in the summer. It was a lovely spot next to the old Greenridge Cemetary (at one time the stone engravers house). I loved that porch-outside, but inside, and a view of the monumental stones in the old cemetary.

      Kimberly, I think the kitchen walls and some cabinets are paneled in Formica. In the mid 1920’s they started producing what would become the modern version of laminates for residential use. By the late 1930’s they had developed the process for turning out the faux marble and wood looks common starting in the 1950’s kitchens. To my eye this looks like the kitchen of one of my great aunts. She had her kitchen, cabinets, walls, ceilings and countertops covered in Formica. Bit of a clean freak was Aunt Grace. The only reason the floors weren’t done was because my Uncle Dan drew the line, so color matching linoleum squares went down instead. Incidentally they went with green and white color blocking. Still my favorite family kitchen of all time. The ceiling and countertops were green, the cabinets were white with the walls being white above countertop height and green below with a diamond pattern Lino floor. I think it was done in the mid to late 1930’s though I’m not sure. The kitchen was still intact in 2010 when the state demolished it to make way for highway expansion.

  4. Nice to see an actual (no pockets) billiard table.

    OMG, the perfect Victorian look outside. That place has more angles than a geometry book. I’m trading my 2 churches in on this one.

    What a grand lady outside. I am with you Bethany. Just a little disappointed with the inside. Some kind of disconnect occurred here. Nonetheless, a great old house

    Of course I love the outsied but contrary to others I love the inside even more. I would back date the kitchen but would be in no hurry. Replace light fixtures to period & fix up the bathrooms. I’d leave it pretty much as is, just do what it takes to preserve the way it is. Would do the outside up in grand fashion. I know I’m strange but somethiing about the inside of this house just makes me want to cacoon up for the rest of my life.
