c.1885 Fixer Upper Italianate in Corning Iowa Under $28K ~ Sold


This beautiful c.1885 fixer upper Italianate just can’t seem to keep a family. It has had a multitude of owners over the years. A medically retired veteran and his wife purchased this house in 2016 and began the process of bringing it back to life. They did quite a bit of work on the house, including a period paint job. I have included “before” photos from the 2015 listing, but you can see their progress on their Facebook page, Our 1885 Italianate, before it abruptly stopped in 2017.
