    This is my favorite of the night. So stunning and the style is just what I like…very ornate. Woodwork is gorgeous too. 🙂

    “Baronial” is a descriptive term that comes to mind. Probably belonged to a West Virginia coal baron originally. The multiple niches near the landing seem like a couple may have been window openings originally-if true, their art glass is now missing. The 1904 date appears to be correct based on the decor inside. The tower windows looks more Moorish/Morrocan than Tudor-arched-but special “Turkish” corners and rooms were all the rage in the 1890’s and early 1900’s. One could still live like royalty in this one with some minor work and upgrades.

    I thought that looked strange where it was just a white wall in the niches. Makes sense now with what you have told us. This is way to rich for my purse but I love to dream. 🙂

    Hey, guys! I’m the owner – the niches on the landing are just regular niches – they are wired for electric – the female sculptures are actually lighted, but received a bit of damage to their extremities when the Highland kids were little. They still work, though!! The side windows of the stained glass crank out and create a great breeze.

    Jennifer, you are one lucky lady. I can only dream of something like this. Your home is fantastic. 🙂

    Really loved walking through the house several months back. Its a bit pricey for the area-380K?! especially for the fact that it is missing a kitchen, the stone is efflorescence, the skylights leak and there is severe termite damage that would warrant any home inspectors caution. Has any of this been improved? If so, I might like to see it again and make a reasonable offer. But in no way would it be worth more than 350k… without a kitchen. I bet the existing woodwork that was torn out matched the decor of the house. Today, that would still be completely custom to do it right. Plus, the historic murals have been painted over, and some of the tiles been removed both along fireplaces and then again along the outside perimeter. To fix up the place right would take a half a million…

    Actually, the damage was from before we owned the house – the original skylights leaked and we had them replaced with custom made from Pennsylvania. No worries though – you will be unable to see the house again as it is no longer on the market – we are moving in!! Hooray!!! We are all really excited about settling in and really making it a home.

    Never listen to those who make negative comments about your home. It is beautiful! So many details that are simply not available in a new home. Yes, this is your home, it may not be a new home, but warts and all it is something you can be proud of. You have quite a treasure and I am sure that you will value it for many years to come.
