Uninhabitable' 1887 House Is Lovingly Restored To Its Former Glory


Talk about DIY project!

Talk about a DIY project! This house from 1887 in York, PA was literally covered in weed, dirt, and dust, and on the verge of falling apart after years of neglect. It was even declared uninhabitable. In its former glory, this Queen Anne style house featured intricate brick detailing and a large porch.

The five bedroom, three bathroom house has been fully and lovingly restored to a new glory.

Wow, would you look at that! It looks like an entirely new house.

Outside, the bricks, wood, and trim have been redone with warm earth-tone colors—olive green, terra cotta red, and gold, reviving a liveliness to the house.

Let's take a step right up into this house!

Inside, the floors have been luxuriously replaced with five types of wood and different colors of light are introduced via stained glass panels on the windows.

No detail has been missed; with period light fixtures and intricate wall designs, the house still retains its timeless charm.

Look at this dining room! Wouldn't you want to dine in there?

Look at how cozy this kitchen is. And don't worry, it's equipped with modern appliances!

Large windows invite plenty of sunlight and the bedrooms all have their own unique designs.

Other rooms are multipurpose, serving as workspaces, playrooms, or hobby rooms.

Currently, it is licensed as a bed-and-breakfast, but it can be family home too. The best part is, it’s for sale!
