I had to!!

Welcome to my wannabe new old home. I had a few hours off today, my go back and
visit this old home again. This time there was a guy there that was seriously thinking about
purchasing it to refurbish it back to how it once was...

This is a view of the back side of the home. The steps were fall through steps, but that didn't
stop us. He had a key and invited us in to take a look around. It was pretty well stripped and they had tiled the floor, but the built in cabinetry was spectacular. They painted the rooms the most awful garish colors

This is the left side of the front of the house, It has a beautiful curved brick staircase going up to one of the bedrooms

Another picture of the back, I was trying to get the whole thing in the photo.

There was one original light fixture left, It is so beautiful. I took more pictures, I'll show you little doors and other goodies tomorrow.
Here is the scoop. The asking price is a meir 6 million. 1 1/2 acres. The guy said it would cost about a million to fix it up...but the problem is, it is an historical home, which causes all kinds of problem. Hope you enjoy a piece of my tour

I'm so glad you went back so you can share this marvelous old home with us. Maybe some of us could pool our money and buy it, fix it up and have a blast spending time together!
