505 N Chestnut St, Red Cloud, NE, 68970 $95,000
Nothing makes me happier than a yellow house with white trim, even if the trim does need a paint job. This c.1908 handyman special Queen Anne is located in Red Cloud, Nebraska (pop. 1,020). In addition to the trim, the bathrooms need TLC, but the home’s woodwork is gorgeous. We don’t see many window seats like the one below still intact in houses at this price point.
This sunny home is set on half an acre within walking distance to the childhood home of famed author Willa Cather. She used Red Cloud as inspiration for several of her novels, including my favorite My Antonia. Some of the buildings described in her novels can actually be found in the Willa Cather Historic District, the largest NRHP district dedicated to an author.
