I wish there were even a few interior pictures. It’s a very handsome, well-proportioned home. I hope it doesn’t get torn down 😪

I’m going to be in the area next month investigating a possible job transfer. If I can carve out some time I’ll go check it out.

Grant, let us know what comes of your visit. I hate to see the word “tear down” for an old house. It has character!

Same here, I’ll see if I can get some images inside.

Perhaps that addition on the back could be torn down, leaving the original portion intact. I would be less to restore and provide a nice back yard space. I wonder if that would be allowed with a Landmark building, but since it was a later addition, I don’t see why not. I like that balcony connecting the two sections. I’d sit up there all day and watch the traffic go by.

I’m always skeptical when someone issues a house a “tear down”. Does it really need to be demoed or are they just assuming no one would want to make the effort? Was the house inspected and said to be condemned? I’d be interested in hearing more about that.

I know some will throw stones at me for saying this, but I do hope that if demolition is going to happen, that salvage of some of the historic elements is done. Sometimes people just crush these houses to the ground with some beautiful mantels, staircases, doors, trims, and other wood embellishments all still intact.

I’m with you on the salvage—it always seems like such a waste when no effort is made to retain what could be used and appreciated well beyond the lifetime of the demolished house.

Totally agree with that. I drove by a house last year and saw the crane has smashed the entire front off the house and you can see inside beautiful staircase and woodwork. None of it salvaged. It is hard to believe that still happens.

Salvage should be a requirement when a demo permit is issued. Those architectural elements and old lumber are irreplaceable.

That’s not fair. She does say “Would be wonderful if it could be restored and brought back to life.” Tear-down is an unfortunate economic assessment often made by realtors without consideration of the historic and esthetic value of old homes. A better phrasing would be “Buy an old home for the price of a building lot.”
