c.1910 Affordable Home in Jamestown, NY Under $40K – Sink with Legs!


We are back at Lucy’s hometown in a low-crime section of Jamestown. The house is situated on a pretty brick street of well-kept older homes, and features quite a few original elements that shout, “Be still my heart!” In addition to the coffered dining room ceiling and  plate rail, the natural woodwork, wainscoting, hardwood woods and cast iron radiators speak volumes. What shouts the loudest, though, is the pantry built-in and the kitchen sink! I have to say, however, while I absolutely love the looks of the sink, it is not really functional. My husband salvaged one of these for me from a Wildwood, NJ, knockdown, but when I got it home, the sink was so shallow, it just couldn’t work for my family of nine.
I have included the 2013 Google Map street view of the home when it was painted red. Which color do you prefer for the home ?

    I see what you mean by kitchen sink being very shallow…possibly good for potting shed? As for the color of the house, I think the Red looked better but I would like to see pale yellow with moss accents. That would give the house some life, as now it simply looks blank.
