    That’s some idea of a formal rear garden – mmm yeah. Here’s another one:

    That’s a beautiful restoration–I don’t even mind the granite in the kitchen. But I’m really confused by the rear elevation. The room with all the windows is above the door, so where/what does that steep sloped roof go to/do?

    Those floors?!?!?!? <3

    Yes please! I don’t even mind the painted wood, looks right in this house. I love the furniture too!

    Lots of inside work and stripping of floors has been done. Outside is so puzzling – would be interesting to see old pictures. Not sure why the huge side yard wasn’t included in the landscaping.

    I was impressed with this house for several reasons. The fireplaces are absolutely beautiful, and they look functional! I loved the floors and the large halls. The area that really surprised me, was the door halfway up the staircase. I have seen many old homes over the years online, but this is the first time I have seen a door that closes in the middle of the steps. Has anyone else ever seen this?

    I wonder what happened to the house that sat on that lot. On the Google map of 2007 it shows a fairly modern house and then by 2012 it was gone! For my personal preference, I would’ve left the exterior unpainted. I thought it looked better the red brick.

    I’m puzzled as to why there are no pictures of either the sun room upstairs or the lower entryway on the back of the house. I’m assuming that some of the rooms are in the original attic space?

    Im curious about why houses built in this time period have such large bedrooms. I know they used wardrobes to store clothes rather than closets but they didnt take up much room. The only heat came from fireplaces,it had to take a big fire to heat a room.

    Truly beautiful Federal/Italianate/Greek Revival? Although the style looks mostly Federal to me. Very well done, but I would have stained the floors to mimic a patina as opposed to looking brand new. I think I would have tried to make the bathrooms more period appropriate with handmade copper tubs and a bowl on a simple washstand with the toilet in a separate room where it looked like a small chest you opened up with a seat inside. Although, I am sure that is not a popular opinion! Add some perennials to the sides of the back yard (because one must have flowers!) and it would be perfect. Now to just get the money and the jobs, lol! To the owners, Good Job, Well done!
