The Eye Candy

 
Get ready to drool over this 1867 brick Italianate home, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The house is partially gutted, but appears to be full of treasures such as the arched transom doors, built-ins, fireplaces and a beautiful open staircase. Even in ruins, she is a sight to behold… can you imagine her restored back to her former glory? While the work that lies ahead for the new owner is not for the faint of heart, the payoff of restoring this historic beauty would be huge.

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.
