    This place is such a gem! The wallpaper is worn-looking enough to possibly be the orignal paper I would think. The light fixtures are amazing. I wish there was a kitchen picture. Could be awful but could also be awesome!

    Sylvester C. Hotchkiss (1842-1908) was an architect and builder who served in the Civil War, and worked most of his career in Chicago. In his fifties, he moved to Arkansas for his health and his work in Monticello is recognized, notably the Lambert House and the unusual Allen House:

    This house was his own, and advertised his design abilities by using a variety of forms and features. Very quirky and cool IMO.

      Although that information is correct, the architect appears to have cut some corners by using cheaper Southern Yellow Pine for the millwork downstairs. I wonder if the ascending triple landing windows once had stained glass? Although some of the details are unusual, nothing lavish is evident in the house but local architects were not paid huge sums of money in those days unless their bread and butter was designing mansions for wealthy clients. I’m wondering in this case if the house was not originally designed to be a spec house and was then selected by the architect to be his own home.

    JimH, you are amazing. Great info. Love this house (and the homes in the links.) I’ll bet there are many more beautiful features that were not photographed. Would love to see more.

    This is a beauty. And that guest house is darling!

    I’d really like to see some rooms. Even though the details photographed are nice enough, you can hardly tell whether or not you’d actually like the house.
