“It’s a special type of person with a special kind of mindset that buys an old house. You’re not there to impose, you are really a steward of the past.”
I see you there, old house…
…at the corner of AL-15 and Chunnenuggee in Union Springs.
I love your tree-lined street, and (thanks to Google Maps) I can see that your next-door and across-the-street neighbors are cute as a button, too:
(That’s you on the right!)
I know what you looked like back in the late 1800s, too…
Makes me wonder what happened to your porches…and what color your body used to be.
An article online said your name is “Culver-Ayers House”. It said you were built by Major Isaac F. Culver, who was the state commissioner of agriculture at the time. I bet he and his family had so much fun doing life with you!
I found photos of what you looked like a few years ago, too…
…and I was so glad the folks who bought you in 2012 (for less than $60K!) did such a good job of cleaning you up.
I know the rest of you probably looks much different now too, but I love all these old photos I found of you!
I hear you’re back on the market…$125,000 this time. That’s mind-blowing, if you ask me. You know you’re precious, right? I might have to drive over amd tell you that to your face sometime. 😉
Your listing also says you’re almost 6000 square feet, and that you have 5 (or 6?) large bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, heart pine flooring, a grand entrance foyer, a front parlor room, a winding staircase, wooden pocket doors, stained glass windows, a new geo thermal heating/cooling system on the first floor, NINE fireplaces, formal living and dining rooms, a large fenced-in backyard, a carriage house, a gazebo, and that you sit on a 1.34-acre corner lot. We’re not in the market for a move, but if we were, boy would you be tempting!
