In the meantime, check out these two houses. This smaller red brick home is currently on the market (although it already has a contract on it). That's one thing about this neighborhood -- homes for sale can flounder for months or be off the market within a week. The original porch has been altered with the excessive use of brick. The original wooden column pilasters are still there though. It wouldn't be too difficult to rebuild the porch to what it originally looked like. There are plenty of examples nearby to use for inspiration. I'm optimistic the new owners will take it to the next level -- it could be a real gem with a little TLC.
This other house I think qualifies as a queen anne (although devoid of a turret), and I can't help but sigh everytime I pass by it. It has so much potential and the overall design is impressive. Maybe someday I can call this (once) stately building home.
