What I Like About This House

Who doesn’t love a Greek Revival…and a stone one at that? The price is certainly right. It’s been reduced $43,000 since July.

This 1880 beauty sits on almost two lush acres and is a decent distance from the road. Due to its stone construction, window sills are deep and the mouldings around them are gorgeous. Note the front door with sidelights, too. Of course, the staircase is a stunning original, and the wood floors are ready to be restored. The farmhouse sink in the mother-in-law apartment is definitely a keeper. In fact, it appears that the kitchen and bath in the apartment may be in better shape than those in the main living space. With that in mind, it might be prudent to live in the apartment while working on the downstairs kitchen and bath.

What I’m Not Keen On

A transformer is directly across the road, which could be a deal breaker for many. The Dutch Colonial storm doors would have to go, and the faux wood paneling gets chucked. Those, however, are both easy fixes. Galley kitchens are a bane of my existence, though, so I’d hope there’s a non-bearing wall that could be knocked down to enlarge the space. What I really can’t bear is a tax bill of $5,700 a year and lake-effect snow. What are your thoughts?
