Fixer Upper in Mineral Point, WI $40K
This fixer upper Queen Anne sits on a corner lot in the low-crime community of Mineral Point, Wisconsin, in the southern portion of the state. Next door is a restored Queen Anne, for which the owners have done a great job. Perhaps a potential buyer of our featured home could get some pointers from the neighbors.
Known as the Fitzsimmons House, I believe the home was built around 1904 by Richard Fitzsimmons, a lumber man from Ireland.
The historic name for this house is: Fitzsimmons, Richard House. This two and a half story, Queen Anne styled house features an irregular shaped plan configuration, a stone foundation, an asbestos shingled exterior, a wood trim and an asphalt shingled hip and gable roof. Large, three story bays are marked by chambered corners and gable roofs. Decorative shingles appear on the pent roofed cornice returns. A two-sided porch is supported by squared posts on filled-in railings. Also appearing in the architectural design of this dwelling are leaded glass window and door moldings.
