As you all know, I cannot get enough of cheap, beautiful old houses (I have an entire Instagram feed devoted to them.) This morning I happenstanced upon this Gothic Revival beauty and nearly fell on the floor. I WANT IT!!! Just look at the window in the upstairs hallway.
 


 

414 N Main St, Harrodsburg, KY

 
4 beds, 2 baths, 3,510 sqft
Asking Price $90,000
 
This spacious old home was begun around 1856 by M.B. Pulliam and completed by Daniel Curry in 1857. Steep gables decorated with gingerbread, and walls of board and batten are textbook features of the Carpenter Gothic Style. Daniel Curry was a noted mid-nineteenth century builder as well as a Kentucky legislator. This is Harrodsburg’s house of seven gables. The front porch features four sets of paired columns spaced to frame the handsome doorway complete with sidelights and transom. A double lancet window/doorway opens onto the second floor balcony formed by the flat porch roof. The interior of the home retains its original woodwork and flooring. The home has 11 rooms plus 2 baths. A real gem for someone who appreciates the character of older homes and wants to own a piece of history. The home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
