Older Houses, Time Capsules and Tight Driveways

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Louisville East (502) 664-7827

With the charm of older neighborhoods comes the charm of yesteryear's amenities such as coal shoots in the basement and driveways and garages just wide enough for a horse and small carriage.

The allure of living in a time capsule. The result of the clash of eras can be seen here.

I guess going to fast in reverse, objects may appear closer or in this case hidden?  Dang!

"The Clash of the Eras" - That's a very appropriate description of what has happened here.  All homes can confront issues of becoming outdated, but some certainly more than others.

Chris, Myrl,

Thanks for stopping by. I'm in and out of many historic homes. Some have been delightfully restored, some are still waiting.

Dave: Talk about one picture being worth a thousand words! This is a true example of functional obsolence.
