    1866…in there somewhere?

    Layout seems a little confusing but it has great bones, lots here to work with. Gorgeous wood…That top floor would be su–perb for a studio! Don’t care for the heavy draperies, but that’s an easy fix and the grounds are very nice.

    Take the two sixes and flip them upside-down to read 1899, that would be more like it. This is a spot on match for one of George F. Barber’s most elaborate designs, created at the peak of his practice. The design was first published in 1894. I will send Kelly an image from the pattern book that illustrates this design. The exterior photos show the original attic balcony still intact. Simply amazing. What a gem of a house. I hope the new owner treats it with the respect it deserves. Great find Kelly!

    Needs period colors to bring out the detail.

    The date may be a misinterpretation of an 1866 map that shows a house on the block at that time, but closer to the corner and not likely this house or any part of it.

      I liked this house right way.

      I now like this house even more knowing it is by Barber and has such WAY COOL drawings!

      Thanks, Kelly! Thanks, Chris!

    Yikes, Kelly, you are on quite the roll today! This is a beautiful home and given some TLC could be spectacular I think.

    It appears to me that Barber designed this home with the intention of siting it on a corner lot. That 3/4 view in the drawings Chris provided shows the house from the best angle. The fact the house was placed mid-block indicates it was a plan book house and not designed for this site. Having said that, it’s still a fabulous example of a highlight from Barber’s extensive pool of work.

    It’s always nice to see the original design and see how it was executed in the field. I can see the subtle things they changed from the design but the overall effect and balance is typical George Barber. Nicely done!

    I’m infatuated with the piano! I’ve never seen one like that. The exterior red, white, and blue, blue, blue, isn’t really working for me, but the house is lovely. I guess I could live with the color scheme for a while, it does look fresh. The 3rd floor would make an ideal studio.
