I have just acquired this little gem on eBay and am very happy! Houses of this caliber very rarely come up for sale in Australia, and so I was very pleased to find it.
I am fairly sure it must be an American house because of the Victorian mansard style, but it is not a kit built house. I think perhaps it was made from a pre-purchased plan because the proportions seem too well balanced to have been made without guidance. Any ideas?
Now the question becomes to what extent should I renovate? Should I re-do the interior entirely and put in some lighting and perhaps a staircase? Should I instead try to keep it original. This will have to be considered carefully, particularly after some research as to where exactly it comes from.
Either way it is a very sweet house and I will keep you posted on renovations.
