This c.1921 fixer upper Prairie style home is located in a gorgeous, low-crime neighborhood of Peabody, Kansas. When you view the Google Map, you will see what I mean. Tree-lined streets, some of them brick, filled with one beautiful home after another.
I was smitten with this house as soon as I saw the facade. Those wide, bracketed overhangs are something. Plus, the property has a carriage house.
The interior seemed a bit dark for me (maybe due to the wide overhangs?), but the woodwork, hardwood floors, built-ins coffered ceilings and tiled fireplace are quite handsome. And how do you like that bi-plane lighting fixture? When I saw the built-in with the old sink, that clinched it.
