Trying to sell this and now considering painting it light gray to give it a more modern look. So many of these same houses in the neighborhood, but it is 1919 so 100 years old

Rob it looks like it just needs a new front door, some landscape help and maybe a lime wash on the brick. I’d paint it white before gray though for sure. White houses are more classic. But it looks great as is- just some sprucing up. Check out the Romabio paints and line wash that allow brick to breathe. We did our house and love it. Got ours at Benjamin Moore.

Rob your colonial revival home is beautiful. Please don’t paint or stain the 100 year old brick. Anyone that owns a historic home is really it’s caretaker for future generations. The original owner did not paint the house. Historic homes are named after the original owners for a reason. Respecting the Past.
