What Do You Think About This House?
We have been looking for a house/land with character for quite some time. Of late, I have been attracted to the midcentury modern style, however this very nice farmhouse (see link below) has been on the market for awhile. I just today saw the website with all these pics and I must say I'm intrigued.
For all of you with an eye to the "needs" of older homes does anything stand out as a red flag?
The updates were probably done by the current owner, he owns a small home improvement company. I do not know the age of the roof or if the electrical and plumbing have been updated. It is on a private well and septic with leased LP tank. The house is 2950 sq ft and was built in 1920. I believe it's overpriced for my area. Market value is maybe $300-325k or so, maybe 350 if the condition is pristine.
I just love that old barn, but wonder how structurally sound it is, as many do collapse after years of neglect. I guess I'll be able to get a decent sense of that by looking at it.
I am going to call the Realtor for a tour tomorrow.
