At least I think its' a dishwasher. The bottom timer seems Frigidaire, KA, or maybe HP.

A little TLC?

Just a little... almost nothing! Maybe just use a swiffer. ROFL.

Am I the only one that noticed that house looks like it is almost collapsing?

I couldn't read very well but the DW may be a Frigidaire?

Monticello is 32 miles north of Macon so it is not even south Georgia and with that plumbing on the back porch, the "laundry" is more suited to a wringer washer (note the lack of a standpipe) because of freezing temperatures from time to time in the winter. The heating is propane and I'll bet it's space heaters in the fireplaces.

It's in a terribly dilapidated state. Somebody needs to knock the whole thing down and start again. It's the kind of money-pit house where you'd end up spending millions.

Photo #2 of 15, on the Estate Agent's site, obviously came out of the archives decades ago when it was still in good nick.

Sad, but it was probably once quite a nice, cozy place!   I thought I saw a standpipe for an automatic washer (and a drip tray) on the enclosed porch - reminds me of the disastrous installation of the '64 GE set I remember from my early childhood at an ancient house we lived in.   The dishwasher/sink seems pretty rough - shame because there are not many of those early Frigidaires left out there.  


Hans - I think that air-conditioner may be a Vornado, but it's hard to tell from the photo.

That's the very first Frigidaire dishwasher, 1955 model and sink combination. Very cool and very rare!

I think the reason it looks like it's falling down is the porch. The gutter is sagging, and the steps aren't too good. The interior looks to be fairly plumb and level, so doubt it's about to collapse - I've seen way worse. Likely a well built house. It reminds me a lot of the one my cousin Mike has in Laurel, MS.

Ya'll have no imagination! This house is in way better shape than my first money pit here (aka: The Manse). My current money pit (aka: The Mini Manse) was at least livable when I got it. This house can't be knocked down since it's in the Historic District. I'm vice-chair of the commission and the moniker of "HYSTERICAL COMMISSION" sadly is well deserved. Trying my best to overcome past issues. And damn I would love the A/C. The porch is most of the issues. There is a lot of original plaster left on the walls which is rare and very tough to fix.

A/C could be GE

but not sure. Looks like a plastic "Carry Cool" type.
That "Honmetown" couple on HGTV could work wonders with that place, and they'd keep the vintage wood work. Not that pothers couldn't do it as well.
I'd say it's worth saving.
An old friend of mine saved a two story greek revival style house in Ionia, Mi.
He was a health inspector at the prison there. It had similar period wood work inside. Ionia has nill as far as much to do, or commerce today, and is an hour between both Lansing and Grand Rapids. Still it's historic, and when he sold it, he made money.
It had rotted wood floor joists under the bathroom, and other issues to address.
He now lives in a Heritage Hill Victorian in Grand Rapids, and owns the multi family next door.

If you google "images of vintage White Westinghouse air conditioners" an AC very similar to this shows up.

Washer on the porch

Not that unusual even this far north. My grandmother had her washer on the porch in Gadsden, Alabama, which is farther north than this. In the winter, the porch got sealed up with plastic, and leaving the inside door cracked kept it warm enough.

Kind of bizarre that someone would have bothered with the drain pan, though, considering how much this porch probably gets rained in. How much you want to bet that that standpipe just dumps the water in the back yard?

That house needs a lot of work. Ceiling damage as well, not to mention the exterior. Don't know that a person would get their money out of it by the time all was said and done. A home is really not worth more or less than the neighborhood, hard lesson learned, or what someone is willing to pay for....which is the neighborhood.
