This house is featured over at Hooked on Houses today, but I couldn't help but talk about it myself since it's located close (103 miles) from where I live.  It's a 1901 Victorian home whose 102 year old owner recently passed away.  Leaving this home to be sold... FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER.


This place is, in a word, AWESOME.  It's located in Columbia, Kentucky.  Boasts 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and 2 kitchens!  All the bedrooms have fireplaces and at least one of the bathrooms has a clawfoot tub.  If you've been following my blog for a while then you'll already know how much I love a claw foot tub.  It's also got stained glass windows and transom doors!



I could just see myself sitting on the front porch in a rocking chair with my sweet tea.



I'm not usually a fan of wall paper, but this wallpaper?  I kind of dig it.  It runs upstairs into the landing as well.


The listing doesn't mention whether any of the furniture comes with the home, but if I were to be the buyer I would definitely ask to keep or purchase some of it.


Not sure if this is the upstairs or downstairs kitchen, but it looks like the most used of the two.  It's the cleanest looking anyway!


This back porch is screaming at me to become a screened in back porch.  I love the porch, I love the stairs, love it, love it, love it!

I was a little taken aback when I read on the listing that the Realtor suggested that it could be used as "upscale student investment property" since it is located near a local college.  This bothers me.  I've seen old houses chopped up to make "apartments" and in my opinion it completely ruins the house!  

This house has been in the same family since it was built and deserves to continue to be used as a family home.  For only $189,000, it really is a steal.  So....  who wants to let me borrow $189K?

You can find more information about this house on the listing here.  Thank you to Julia of Hooked on Houses for sharing this treasure!
