OHU50K NOTES

For Sale By Owner: This is a beautiful Italianate with cupola in the South Michigan Ave Historic District of Saginaw, Michigan.

History

Built in 1874, the home was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. It was constructed for Mr. Wenzel, a Saginaw harness maker and was later sold to Harold Sperbeck, who owned it into the 1980s.

The two-story frame Italianate has bracketed eaves and a pediment breaking the eaves line of each facade. The house also has a low-pitched hip roof, with a twelve pane belvedere (cupola) with an arched roof line at the mid-point of the main roof. A one-story wing is connected at the rear of the house, with an alcove porch rimmed by dentils. The classically-inspired front porch with hipped roof, balustrade and columns must be a later addition. Note the carriage house in the backyard.

While the owner has completed and continues to complete a lot of work on the house, additional work will still be needed by a new owner.

For those who are strictly interested in homes with acreage, we have a new site up and running. Please “like” our Facebook page Country Life Dreams.

What’s not to love about this c.1900 move-in ready Victorian? Well, maybe the 1950’s front door. But who cares about that when the home boasts magnificent millwork, wrap-around porch, staircase, woodwork, built-ins, hardwood floors, stained glass, updated kitchen and beautiful fireplace mantels? The location on a brick street adds even more appeal.

OHU50K NOTES

This well-built old house was built in 1907 and boasts original woodwork as well as beautiful windows. Did you notice the unique wrap-around window? The home sits on a corner lot in a neighborhood of similar older homes in Alliance, Ohio.

Alliance

Alliance has a rich social, industrial, railroad and architectural history.  The town has several historic structures of note including, the restored Glamorgan Castle, former home of the owner of Morgan Engineering; the Haines House, a restored underground railroad house; and the Mabel Hartzell historic home. The Richardsonian Romanesque stone house of the Devine family is being renovated, and Alliance’s historic downtown area is undergoing a gradual renaissance.

FYI: For cat lover’s, the  Feline Historical Museum opened recently, the first cat museum in the United States.

00 E 7th St, Anniston, AL 36207     $38,000 Sold for $38,000

OHU50K NOTES

I am partial to yellow houses, so for me, this fixer upper bungalow has curb appeal. I admire the broad front porch, front facing gable and brick foundation.
What is not to be admired is the neighborhood’s dismal crime stats. The tip-off is when the realtor calls a listing a “great investment property.” Alabama property taxes are the second lowest in the country, however, so that’s a plus. Another plus, is the well-maintained older homes on the street.
