    I love that kitchen. That bathroom arrangement is interesting; never seen a double sink done quite that way!

  2. Attic photos! And porthole (not sure of the correct term) windows!

    Yes I agree that bathroom sink placement and style certainly is different, I don’t dislike it, I’m just not sure lol. Claw foot tub a big YES! Kitchen is nice, but something feels off about it. Lovely house and property.

    A turn of the last century home here that has seen major upgrades in more recent years. The staircase appears to be of recent vintage but perhaps in the past the house was divided into separate living units and the stairwell was enclosed then recently reopened. The entry door is surely from a more recent age and if there were once pocket doors they appear to now be gone. The exterior with the distinctive oculus (porthole is also acceptable) tower windows makes me think this house could have been built from a published design. There were dozens of popular house design plan-books available in the early 1900’s.

    This pretty little gem is another example of a George Barber designed home. Lots of potential here, I hope someone with an appreciation for her significance, preserves this beauty.

    This house has a cottage feel to it, all it needs is a picket fence. I would repaint the mustard and red colors, restain the floors and make the bathrooms look more like the period.

    Did George F. Barber design the fireplace(s) in his homes or other millwork? Thanks.

      Barber was a designer at heart, and therefore contributed to the design of all the major elements of his creations, both within the interior and on the exterior. But with that said, Barber was most likely to do what he encouraged his clients to do, which was to select design elements from the catalogs of those capable of providing the materials. Barber did design the main stairs, and often the built-ins found in dining rooms or within the butler’s pantry, but it is my opinion that the designs used for the fretwork, fireplace mantels, and room dividers whether they be columned openings, pocket doors, or something else, came from the suppliers that had a working relationship with the local lumber yards used to provide the raw building materials for each house in any given location. Barber often did provide detail drawings that described or suggested what he had in mind for a particular feature of the house, but this was done so that a carpenter or builder could take those drawings to a mill work shop, or lumber yard, and select something similar from what was available locally. In some very rare cases, when Barber had a client that lived in a very remote area, Barber would actually work with a Knoxville mill work provider to have the feature in question fabricated and shipped out to the remote location, but as I mentioned, this was a rare thing, and it really only occurred when Barber’s client wrote him expressing great difficulty obtaining the feature design materials needed to construct the home, as designed. Hope that helps.
