      Sure do like the porch and pergola out back; the rest – mmmmk. I’ll bet a nickel you winced at the “can light” nightmare in the kit; I sure did. Heheheh 😉

        I know I should look at recessed lighting as something that needs removed, just like all the houses I’ve posted that has vinyl siding or 1970’s wood paneling. But it’s such a repulsive visual assault on my eyes…it’s one thing I have trouble overlooking in any home, new or old. The rest of the home is okay but the lighting…nope. (To clarify we are talking about the home I linked to NOT the home I posted.)

    I have a really hard time with vinyl – it’s great, I guess, for keeping warm or cool but the house doesn’t breathe.

    I like the posted house much more than the linked house, but it sure deserves better pictures than it got!

    According to historical maps, there was a previously structure on this site dating back to at least 1887. By 1901, the current house is shown with the same basic form as what’s here today. There are strong Colonial Revival influences incorporated in this transitional later Queen Anne house. The Palladian windows in the cross gable ends, the classical front porch, and much of the interior wood are all elements signaling the end of the Victorian era and the rise of the Classical/ Colonial Revival styles that influenced American architecture for much of the 20th century.

    As to the linked house, there is still much to love in the Italianate design under the big box store makeover. At least they didn’t knock it down completely.

    Regarding the linked home, they don’t deserve all the gorgeous stained glass when the character was stripped out & the modern features added-Has only a smidgen of value or beauty now.

    You can see the beautiful house it once was. It’s hard to make sense of the back of the house with the additions. Poorly planned in my opinion. Still, it has most the bones of the original house, just not the vinyl siding!

    Beautiful house! I could move right in!

    Kind of an odd coincidence, but I was looking at this listing this morning without being aware it was posted on OHD. We visited Rushville in late April this year but I’ve yet to upload the dozen or so photos I took due to time constraints. I agree with Charleston John’s assessment about the style and characteristic details. There’s another towered Queen Anne directly across the street from this one but its barely visible in Streetview. We found Rushville to have a number of interesting Victorian era homes during our visit.

    The picture with the piano in it bothers me. I have one of those three-sided bays in my house and it’s just big enough for a lounge chair. That must be a very small “grand”.
