    Removing the wide aluminum siding off this house will great things for the exterior! This is a great house with strong features. Wide siding actually changes the proportions of the house and actually dwarfs it. Having the original siding which can be a total step in the right direction.

    Love the fireplaces and tiles. The staircase and stained glass is stunning.

    Love this early electric light. I’d love to see that with edison bulbs in it!

    For me, I’d remove siding, full kitchen do over and paint the exterior some great historic scheme.

    Nice house and nicely priced for the features offered. Kind of a blend of late Queen Anne and Colonial Revival. I too agree that if it were mine the aluminum siding would have to go. Aluminum siding does have some scrap value so worth taking off and cashing in to use for clapboard or shingle repairs/replacements. I love those beautiful patterned parquet floors.

    Weirdo me kinda likes the kitchen. Not original of course, but certainly “vintage” and not unpleasing to my eye, as the brick-patterned Lino reminds me of my childhood home. I’d probably keep it as is.

    Nice looking home with great looking features on the exterior. It has great curb appeal and a good balance to the design. I agree with MJG about finding the siding under the moderns siding it has on now. Between that and a paint scheme that would pick up a historically correct color pallet would make this a stunning exterior. The interior is great, especially those beautiful floors! Not much I would change on this move in ready home.
