Handsome Fixer Upper
Named for Thomas H. Branaman, a notable local attorney and state senator who occupied it in the mid-1900s, this 1868 Federal-style house in Jackson County needs a preservation-minded buyer to return it to its former glory.
The 7-room house retains many original features, including its staircase, one fireplace mantel, and woodwork. The site also features a garage, a second outbuilding, and the fish pond.
Structurally sound in spite of deferred maintenance, the house sits on a 1.5-acre tract on a hilltop location that could be subdivided and developed, a situation that has preservationists concerned for its future. The house will need complete rehabilitation, with all new systems and cosmetic work, but a buyer with vision could make it a showplace once again.
