    A ton of house for the money….details are lavish and exquisite…..ready to move in…wouldn’t have to do a thing….though I prefer the simple horizontal lines and modernity of arts and crafts and prairie, this home is classic expression of its style….great home….

      I think my favorite detail of this house is the parasol doorknob! Followed by the newel post’s tile inset.

        I’m with you Cathy….both those details caught my eye…then followed by the lincrusta in the dining room. Awesome!

        My fave is the side door to the porch with the art glass in the front parlor; as well as all of the exquisite Aesthetic period tile. Deeeluxe..

    This house is just absolutely exquisite. How anyone could let it go, I can’t fathom.

    Oh, the details! The tile work and door knobs. Geisha door knobs and tile in the newel post is over the top. Is there anything cooler than dust corners? The ingenuity of the Victorian era is to be applauded!

      Help! What’s a dust corner? That’s a new one on me! Cheers!

        Glad you asked…I didn’t know either . So I googled and found this …Decorative Dust Corners are ideal for your wooden staircase or in the corners of your rooms. Dust corners originated in the 1890’s to help simplify housework and are now perfect for historic preservationists. Made of solid brass.

    Fantastic details both inside and out. When the front porch was changed maybe 30 years after initial construction probably as an effort to disguise the unfashionable high Victorian style, it would have been quite a stylistic departure. A hundred years later, with this great paint scheme, it works well. I imagine the original front porch would have been true to the Queen Anne/ Stick detail of the home, and presented quite a different front elevation.

      A house, and it’s unfortunate (yet gorgeous) porch, that you won’t soon forget. Was thrilled to have a peek inside after seeing the front elevation from John’s original image on his Flickr page last year.

      Agreed. Whoever conceived of the present color scheme is very talented; it is not easy to take two completely different styles and harmoniously unite them with color. I would like to see how the house was painted just after the porch was remodeled… I would guess that it was less colorful (and less interesting) than it is now.

    I agree with Les. I’m not a big fan of Victorians, but the woodwork in this home, along with the other features is over the top!

    • AvatarCathy says: 1884 comments

      Same here. Victorians are low on my list of favorite house styles – too fussy for my taste these days. (Long ago, I liked them.) But… This house is another story! Even the staircase’s double banister. At Christmas, could hang a garland using the little spacer thingies in-between the two parts of the banister, and the top rail would still be clear for hands to hold on to. Also love the skinny vertical stained glass windows on either side of the green tiled fireplace. And the teal/marine blue color of one of the other fireplace’s tiles.

    Gorgeous home! To me it looks like a fairy tale castle!!!

  10. AvatarJennifer HT says: 796 comments

    Wowee! What an amazing specimen of fantastical details! What fun it must have been to build and add all the things you want!

  11. AvatarLorinN says: 102 comments

    Beautifully, Lovingly, Restored & Showcased to Sell & CLEAN. No detail was missed on this home. The front Brick, Cement Stairs & Cement Porch Foundation–although a very expensive addition–saves a LOT of time & money in that it is not made of wood. Besides that, it looks fantastic with architecture of the home & the paint scheme. BRAVO to the SELLER…You truly did a beautiful job with fantastic results & YOU should be PROUD of yourselves! The garage paint scheme & the old style doors are wonderful as is the attached Guest quarters. The property is simply lovely in every detail!

    I grew up in Huntington and this was always one of the showplace homes on the north side of town. There are many of these large homes in the neighborhood, it was where the people with money built back in the day. All in all a great deal for a great home!

    I was pleased to find the rare Russell & Erwin “Geisha Girl” door knobs are being reproduced: http://www.vintagehardware.com/proddetail.php?prod=27532&gclid=CNfcjpzfy84CFYskgQodcNAHBA So, at just over $200 per door knob a set of two would be slightly over $400 plus would require a spindle to be functional. I ran across a blog entry about someone finding an original set in a salvage yard in Marion, IN (regrettably, it had been soaked in a chemical vat removing all of the patina) so maybe there are still a few original sets out there. These have become for me a “Holy Grail” of Victorian hardware. At least I have a set of back plates so I’m halfway there….maybe.

    It’s all in the detail and this house has some great details. What’s not to love?

  15. AvatarKaren Baker says: 626 comments

    I used to live in Roanoke, and loved driving down Jefferson in Huntington. Someone told me, that the builders of the houses in this area, were mostly bootleggers! Don’t know if its true, but it makes for a neat story. I love the job the owners did on this house!
