The Eye Candy
This fixer-upper is an asymmetrical Queen Anne designed by noted West Virginia architect Edward Bates Franzheim. Named the “Haymond William Edgar House,” it features wide bays and an octagonal tower. According to the nomination form for the National Register of Historic Places, the original clapboards and ornamentation waits to be uncovered underneath the 1980s aluminum siding! Inside, the home features beautifully unique lincrusta wallcovering in the main stairwell that rises for 3 stories. The home also features unpainted original woodwork, multiple fireplaces, and pocket doors. Situated across from the Elk River, this historic home would surely blossom with the right caretaker.
AUTHOR 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.
