“Looking at a 100 Year Old Home with NO Closets”

“Looking at a 100 Year Old Home with NO Closets”

The price of this home had dropped 25% over 6 months, my curiosity got the best of me. It is not usually a style that I go after, but decided to check it out. It was obvious what the problem was, there were no closets in this home, I mean none.

The problem was with the size of the rooms it was hard to make closets. I have often wondered where any of the owners put clothes over the last 100 years?

Well, I love a challenge and will end up making an offer, this is an estate and I have been told, the executor will listen to offers. I have always been into price, price and price, instead of location, location and location.

    Things were different back in the day I guess, I mean could you imagine a developer putting in a murphy bed today?

    I have looked at homes without closets. Waste of time.  Women will never be happy.  Shoot... even kids will be unhappy without closets.

    I had an older Row House in Maryland, the closets were added on at a later date seeing that there was plenty of room between the rooms, so the previous owners knocked out a section of the wall to create the closets, tiny little things lol, nothing like the closets now a days. The Row House we were living in were just a bit over 100 years old.

    Old ... as in Queen Anne, Second Empire, Victorian, and, to a lesser degree, Edwardian & Georgian, houses ... did not have closets in bedrooms. There were either adjacent changing rooms {many of which may have been turned into a small bedroom} or an armoire or wardrobe was used. We have a few older buildings and provide armoires where it was impractical or aesthetically inappropriate to build a closet into the room.

    Strange! Any room for wardrobes? 

    Let us know how it turns out :)
