    I love how they did the addition on this. It doesn’t look like a pimple on the side of the building, instead it blends in wonderfully

    Beee-utiful! What stunning curb appeal. Love the stairway. My only real objection is the mirrored closet doors, but that’s an easy fix.

    It sure has presence the way it sits on the lot. A nice home.

    I really love that huge pocket door! I’ve never seen one that wide! I just love the front room with the chandelier and that gorgeous staircase!

    Definitely a Barber design, but a considerably smaller version than the published design. Nice house. Hope someone finds her.

    Surely commands the site – when they used the word GRAND that pretty much describes it but
    In a house that’s absolutely GINORMOUS unless you had 51 kids, why would you need the extension? and why not out back instead of warting it onto the side.
    anyway they sure knew how to make a presentation

    That is sure one solid house. Staircase my favorite feature and that pocket door.

    A stone Barber? I like it a lot. The roof with the center Palladian dormer and rounded porch looks similar to published “Colonial” designs, but I’ve not seen this one. Customer drawn? Copied from Modern Dwellings and scaled down by the builder?

    Wonder what that large building across the street is? What a grand house, even has the street named after it…

    well i sure can see the reason for an addition. this house fits right into the new tiny house fad now going on. i don’t agree with those saying the addition looks good. i think it destroys the symmetry that these huge neo-cols projected. they were made to impress with their symmetrical massiveness and that “thing (and it wood extension)” looks like an after thought and not a good thought at that. i am more interested in what they tore off the rear as there is a phantom roof line at about the second story level. oh and the garage has to go too. i bet there was a late carriage house later converted to a garage in the same style as the house. 1904 is a little early for a garage even for progressives that built this place.

    So does anyone have info on the area, and what lies around it? It looks like office buildings or a school.

    The buildings directly next to the mansion are a nursing home behind and right on the other side of street is a mental rehab facility.

    Gonna contact the agent and go take a look at this one. It’s only about 30 minutes from my husband’s job. Would be great for us. Will post what I find out.

    As a young man I lived in this house.From 1960 when i was born to 1975 becks bought this off my father. Miss beck could’nt walk up stairs so they tore out the back wall and made a bedroom on first level. There was a garage in back that whent into the basement. This was allso used for carage in earlier days. Just inside to the right was a big oil tank used for heating and just up from that was a pit for coal for coal/oil burner furnace. There is a few other changes outside the mansion,two porches I used to draw this mansion with the greatest of ease.

      Hey Greg, I just bought this house and would love to chat sometime about anything you know about it. I’ve pieced quite a bit of history together the past few weeks talking to a previous owner but still have a million questions. I’d love to talk sometime!
