  1. Well….. I like this one! Maybe I’m just meant to live up north because the ones I am really drawn to seem to be where I could gets loads of snow. This one isn’t too fancy and the kitchen cabinets needs replaced but I could move in and do some a little at a time. I’m not real fond of the murals, signed or not, or the dark paint colors but I really like the house, especially the staircase and that white room and its fireplace. Some light fixtures aren’t my style, either but the one in the entry is beautiful.

Let me know what you think about this old house!
