    Oh wow Oh wow Oh wow! Transom windows, two staircases, what appears to be a dumbwaiter, vintage bathroom that’s not ruined, great “Harry Potter” closet under that stairs . . . . . . in love!

    Oh the potential!!

    I’m wondering why the picture rail has that arch in it. It doesn’t look like there was something on the wall there.

    This house was built in 1896 for George Harrison Gibboney (1859-1929), a major figure in the history of this little town. From an old local family, he built the Cottage Planing Mill which produced finished lumber and complete homes. Many of the homes in the region and the Everett Historic District were “Cottage” or Gibboney homes; the company also built the county jail, the school and a few of the local churches. They also provided water, electricity and steam heat for homes in town.
    The Everett (Pa.) Republican, Friday, May 15, 1896: “Mr. G. H. Gibboney will have a comfortable new residence completed before the close of the Summer. It will be located on the South-West corner of Spring and Third streets, and will be a worthy addition to the many fine homes already ornamenting that section.” The house is featured on a 1905 panoramic view of Everett and is a local landmark in the Historic District:

    It’s not clear what all is original and what may have been brought in later here, but it’s a great project house that could be magnificent again. Seems a bit overpriced for the region given the amount of work required.

    It has some nice carpentry going on but does seem overpriced, but as they say make an offer and see what flies. Looks doable from a restoration standpoint, love the mantles and built-ins.

    I believe the arched trim may have gone up and over a flue from a small, personal wood burning stove. Anyone else seeing or thinking that?

  6. Can someone please clue me in on why there are three soap dishes in the shower? How clean can you get? LOL!

    I’m fairly certain that this home is a Sears home, or at least many of the elements are from Sears. I have many of the same pieces in my home, which is a Sears home.

    11 photos up from the bottom – can someone explain what was photographed? It looks like a hearth is hiding behind woodwork.

      I wondered about that as well. That is a birch surround mirror, and is a single stationary piece. I spent months stripping poly off of mine so am very familar. Mine is affixed directly to wall and doesn’t need any additional support so I really have no idea what the masonry work is for????
