i have the most gorgeous 1897 dutch colonial with victorian interior. It is in a small part of northern vermont. I need to move for several reasons, but this is not a in demand area. My house has the mostincredible woodwork. Cornice, paneling, moldings, beaded woodwork. the house is amazing. Five fireplaces, with italian tile, and the most beautiful mantles, with cornice, and birdseye maple. so many birdseye maple doors, and leaded glass, and thirteen rooms of the most fabulous wood floors. built by a very wealthy person in the 1900's, this is top quality everything. i'd like to sell the parts of the house for renovations and buildings. it's worth more that way and will be put to better use. does anyone know who buys that kind of item and who i could talk to. I saw Bob v. talking in an interview about remodeling a brownstone in Victorian and how much high quality is worth, and knew that this was the way to go. any suggestions will be appreciated. this is the kind of interior you'd see in manor houses in England. Thanks, Shelley

DON'T TEAR THAT GORGEOUS HOUSE TO PIECES! You sound like you have a beautiful piece of our rapidly dissappearing history! DON't TOUCH A THING! Since you are moving, you should look into selling. If you bought the house, there MUST be someone else out there will to buy it! Try sending Country Living Magizine a real estate discription. They have a nice little section for antique homes and often they sell rather quickly! The internet is another good place. Don't turn a 19th century masterpiece into a pile of pieces until you have no other alternative! (WOW! By the discription you have, I'D buy your house if I had the money! :o} )

of course it's been on the market, actually for about 6 months. It's on ebay right now, and it is indeed historical. The problem is I have kids that need to be settled and start making friends in a new town , along with other reasons. As long as the house is being used in parts or as a hole, and I can get what I paid for it, it doesn't matter. At $475.00 I'm giving it away. I just need to know how to find the contractors that buy upscale salvage. I don't have a year or more to wait for someone to buy. Remodleing San Franciso and new york city victorians, this house has all the right parts. Info please.........
