We're buying a house built in Boston in 1915 and are trying to find out the style (i.e. Folk Victorian) of the house.
We're buying a fixer upper in a neighborhood of Boston this week and are trying to pinpoint the style of architecture. The house was built in 1915, per city records.
Here is an image of the front of the house
and here is the driveway and little garage
Yes it's vinyl sided in an ugly way, but changing that will be a bit in the future. We will be fixing up the porch a bit and would like to get rid of the wrought iron, but are trying to figure out what this house would've had originally.
There's a small stained glass window in the stairway going up to the second floor, but otherwise it's a very simple house without much architectural flourish. The kitchen is a bad late 60s re-do so we'll be making changes there too. We're thinking of a farmhouse porcelain sink, white cabinets and a butcher block counter top, but again... don't want to do anything too weirdly different from how this house started out.
It has kit/livingroom/diningroom on the first floor and 4 rooms and a full bath upstairs. No fireplace, unless there's one covered up by a wall--we haven't had enough time inside to investigate that yet.
Any ideas about this style of house would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
