May 2007 Second Empire

Location: Port Huron, Michigan
Status: Still Available
Price: $74,900

While Second Empire was a dominant style of American houses from 1860 to 1880, this is the only brick version left in Port Huron, Michigan, a historic city just across the St. Clair River from Sarnia, Ontario. While the exterior looks much as it did back in 1870, when it was built, the interior has been gutted down to the studs, though details such as an original staircase, and a massive brick fireplace with decorative tiles are still intact. Those interested in saving this ornate little treasure should call Jeff Wine at 810-985-5080.
