    Barber design maybe? Nicely done whomever the architect was. Interesting figurine on the newel post. Wonderful (soapstone?) sink as noted.

      I certainly think this house is a Barber design. I have long suspected this house was designed by Barber, but I have never been able to connect with anyone close to the property, to see if any documentation exists in support of that conclusion. It does not exactly match any published design that I am aware of, yet it contains the design elements of several published Barber designs. Anyway, I will try yet again, to learn more, now that the house is on the market. Beautiful, she is.

      Who is that guy on the newel post? He doesn’t look generic but like some famous preacher maybe.

        That had me wondering too. I was thinking it must be a conductor; maybe Bernstein, or Maazel, or Harnoncourt, or somebody from the 19th century or even before. I had settled on Maazel. It’s pretty cool, but the pink hued, plastic Warhol statue is COOLER! 😉

    “That soapstone sink will feature prominently in my dreams tonight” LOL – no kidding. I think it is wonderful, inside and out.

    I am the proud new owner of this gem! Well I will be in 2 weeks . From the extensive research done by current owner , they are 99% sure that this is in fact a barber design.

    Check out the photos the owner sent in of the new paint job! She also shared one of Teddy Roosevelt on the front porch. The historical society told her it was the same house, we both have our doubts. The porch, supports and that left bay window look totally different! The historical society is crazy! Well, it’s a cool pic anyway. Love the new paint job too! She plans to share more photos in the future. 🙂

    I love the paint job’! Beautiful!

    And the Teddy photo is cool… but it doesn’t seem like the same house? I may just not be seeing it because of the angle.

    Ah, that wasn’t posted when I made my comment! Still very cool!

    I like the new colors far more than the previous palette. As for the Teddy Roosevelt photo, he may have stopped by this house but the photo was taken somewhere else-the details simply do not match up. Thanks for sharing!
