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.

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.

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