    This house is very pretty. I wish it had more pictures.

    Oooh, 5 bathrooms, perhaps one for each bedroom. I agree with Lissie, there should be more pictures.

    Love this house in the city of my alma mater, the University of Nebraska. The woodwork and the general appearance of the house are tasteful and lovely. Love the garages too! Anyone got a legal opening in Lincoln?

    Attractive house. I’m not a big fan of rough stucco exteriors and assume that was done later, along with alteration of the mantel, white paint etc.

    Here’s 2 nice shots of owner Harry Sidles in his cars the year the house was built:

    In the 1920’s, Sidles became a flying enthusiast and took regular business trips piloting his own Curtiss Wright Travel Air Sport Trainer, a two-place open plane.

      I noticed the stucco on the front porch too. It looks like something done recently, to tell the truth. Do you think it was put over clapboards? The interior is very beautiful and it has good curb appeal.

    I’m very surprised at the reasonable if not a steal price for this house!!! The kitchen remodel is tastefully done, I too would have love to see more pictures! Bathroom pictures would have been nice. What a treasure this house will be for the right family!!!!

    I love the house but it makes me wonder what the exterior looked like before the stucco.

    see the home at 215 broad st eufaula AL. Also see the home at 1414 chambers st vicksburg MS. Both have stucco exteriors that are original. I would not assume that this stucco was added later. It may well have been done that way originally.

    I think it’s possible that the stucco is original. My parents had a 1910 house (the one I grew up in) and it had that same kind of rough stucco, as did the one across the street that they moved out of.

    I’ve seen many old stucco houses like this, so I assumed it was original, too.

    It’s just wonderful inside. It’s got arches, lots of woodwork, leaded glass….I’m intrigued by the five bathrooms!

    One cannot look at the structure of the front porch and not recognize the obvious mission revival influence. Not only were mission revival and prairie styles often mixed and concurrent in their time frames but also we know from a blog about this particular architect that he sometimes mixed several styles. So i tend to err on the side of the stucco being original as stucco and mission revival are certainly things that go hand in hand. However all that said anything is possible and were the picture of the house to surface that the architect used for an advertisement then we would know for sure. The exterior of this house would benefit greatly from something other than the whitewash it has suffered. The interior woodwork is magnificent and all in all i like this place. Someone could make it really nice.
