Be a Handyman
If you don't want to buy a remodeled home, you can buy a "fixer-upper" and use your own inspiration. Some of those homes still have the original hardwood flooring, which the owners once installed with pride. They can be renewed and look great after that process. Some homes even have their original stone fireplaces, and the traditional molding is still in place. However, don't be overly excited. You better know what you are doing, because a lot of sweat and knowledge is involved if you want to bring a 100-year od building up to code.
