Needs a lot of work, but man, this sure would be a fun and rewarding project! The construction began in 1856 by M. B. Pulliam. It was completed in 1857 by Daniel Curry. Love all of the gables and the gingerbread trim! Daniel Curry was a noted mid 19th century builder, as well as a Kentucky legislator. Known as the House of Seven Gables. Located on 1/2 acre in Harrodsburg, Kentucky. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 3,510 square feet. $70,000

From the Zillow listing:


This spacious old home was begun around 1856 by M.B. Pulliam and completed by Daniel Curry in 1857. Steep gables decorated with gingerbread, and walls of board and batten are textbook features of the Carpenter Gothic Style. Daniel Curry was a noted mid-nineteenth century builder as well as a Kentucky legislator. This is Harrodsburg’s house of seven gables. The front porch features four sets of paired columns spaced to frame the handsome doorway complete with sidelights and transom. A double lancet window/doorway opens onto the second floor balcony formed by the flat porch roof. The interior of the home retains its original woodwork and flooring. The home has 11 rooms plus 2 baths. A real gem for someone who appreciates the character of older homes and wants to own a piece of history. The home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
