If this old house could talk
What a story it would tell
It would tell about the good times
And the bad times as well
We’d be hard-pressed to find any old house lover who wouldn’t drop everything for the chance to restore this 5,000-sq. ft. Victorian house in Montrose, Pennsylvania—which might just be the most beautiful fixer-upper we’ve ever laid eyes on.
The Eastlake-style, wraparound porch is the first thing that caught our attention, but we became more and more enamored as we scrolled through the interior photos. The home features a number of perfectly-intact Victorian-era mantelpieces, a sweeping grand staircase, and just enough peeling wallpaper to make us want to roll up our sleeves and dive right in. There’s also an old player piano sitting inside that surely has some stories to tell. If ever a house had potential, this is it!
You’ve probably already made a long list of summer projects, but you could squeeze in one more teeny, tiny thing, couldn’t you?
Asking price: $169,900.
