Friday Fixer-Upper: Any Takers on This $39,900 Connecticut Charmer?

Friday Fixer-Upper: Any Takers on This $39,900 Connecticut Charmer?

by Rachael Meyerink

You could buy a lot of things for $39,900, but none would be as beautiful as this Connecticut charmer. There appears to be somewhat of a (ahem) leak, and replacing the roof would be first priority. A close second would be to put all of those rocking chairs back to their rightful spot on what has to be the most gorgeous porch for miles.

Rachael_MeyerinkAUTHOR RACHAEL MEYERINK
Rachael Meyerink resides in Sioux Falls, SD and is a Midwestern girl, born and raised. To her, “home” feels like sun shining through windows paned in wavy glass, an extra sweater on cold winter days and a window fan humming in the background in the heat of summer. In short: home feels like an old house. She and her husband have owned three such houses in their 15 years together- a 1923 American Four Square, a 1960s ranch and finally, an 1889 Queen Anne listed on the National Register of Historic Places. By day she works as a pediatric dietitian, and on nights and weekends, rehabs her old house with her husband. Her three children, yellow lab, ginger cat and five chickens complete their family. She keeps an online journal of her old house rehab adventures at myqueenanne.wordpress.com.
