    This Barber designed house seems to have retained more of its original details; always a plus for old house lovers. Some added colors to bring out the details would really enhance an already impressive house. It’s also slightly lower priced than the Ohio Barber example making this one a sweet deal.

    I love that little sitting nook under the stairs!

    I have noticed that many of these houses have kept their original character in the living, dining and bedrooms. The woodwork, fireplaces, windows, and flooring all seem to have been well preserved, maintained or restored. But then it seems that something goes awry in the kitchens and bathrooms. It happens a lot – I drool over the photos of living rooms, dining room, and bedrooms, and wince at the photos of the kitchens and bathrooms.

    I laughed when I got to the kitchen photos since the description in the ad reads: “There is a full modern kitchen”. I was expecting some mundane nightmare from Ikea or Home Depot. What we get instead is a quaint kitchen from the mid-nineties

    I just got back from a road trip through upstate NY and Johnstown was one of my stops. This town is filled with beautiful historic homes, many of which are Victorian. Along with this Barber design, there is another Barber designed home and at least one D.S. Hopkins design. If you can find something to do for work here, this town is a gem and the inventory of historic architecture is spectacular.

    Wonderful! I like the brick of the Ohio example but this is true to the original frame design. How all those exterior details have survived 120 hard upstate winters is a bit of a miracle, and the interior is nicely intact as well.

    Could the house across the street also be Geo Barber ?

    I even love the little window in the roof on the first picture.
