Save This House! A Beautiful 1903 Queen Anne in Sterling, Kansas

by Melanie Moore Krogman   Waiting for you in Sterling, KS is an absolutely lovely Victorian home dating to 1903, and designed after the governor’s mansion at the time. In fact, a hand-sculpted brass miniature of the home is in Coronado Quivira Museum, in Lyons, KS (how fun is that?!). The owners loved this home in small town Kansas, but no longer have the time to give it the care that it needs.   var OB_platformType=3; var

by Elizabeth Finkelstein While doing some reach for a post I wrote this week for Country Living Magazine, I happenstanced upon an incredible opportunity for the right investor, or someone who just loves fixing up old houses! These three Victorian homes are all clustered together as neighbors in Stafford, Kansas, and are for sale for unbelievably low prices. The realtor “would really prefer to package these properties together under an LLC with investors. And have a preservation trust/hunting lodge/B&B with enough funds to adequately preserve and showcase these wonderful properties.” For more information, contact Clare Moore of Claremont Realty and Management at (316) 682-5803.   var OB_platformType=3; var

Friday Fixer-Upper: A Brick Italianate on the Shores of Lake Erie!

by Rachael Meyerink Hold everything and take in this grand brick Italianate home on the shores of Lake Erie! The exterior, even in its current condition is breathtaking. What has happened to the interior in the last decade is a sad tale—photos from a 2005 listing of the home are in sharp contrast to what the buyer of this foreclosure will encounter. Here’s to hoping that the gorgeous brick, cornices, fireplaces and bay windows will enchant the right person to restore this home back to the beauty it once was.   var OB_platformType=3; var

Does anyone out there know the story with these two neighboring homes in Paragould, AR–on the market for just $55,000 and $30,000? Built in 1928 (I’m assuming together, as one appears to be the carriage house for the other), they seem to have been plucked straight from the pages of a storybook. The realtor’s description is blank, but if you happen to find out more details, please send them my way! Also, is that a tunnel connecting the two? How fun is THAT?!   var OB_platformType=3; var
