The only way to get a price is to call a local electrician and a plasterer.

To many variables in an old place to even take a flying guess.

rewire old house $$$

Probably several thousand. An electrician bid $5000 to rewire my 100 year old house. I rewired it myself for about $200. It took 2 days.
