I really like the dining room ceiling but it seems like some of the other rooms may benefit some updating. I know folks disagree about the difference between houses needing/requiring vs. benefiting from updating. Sure you can live quite well here but if you’re gonna drop $919,000 wouldn’t you want more updated rooms? Of course I too agree that keeping the historical details (and the bar in the basement) but this home looks a bit dated to me. What do you guys think $919,000 sound reasonable or should it be updated?
