Kelly, OHD says: 11732 comments Admin 1901 Folk Victorian Chestatee, GA 08/11/2017 at 8:51 pm Sorry for the short posting week. Some people think this site has more people running it than just me. I did hire someone to keep up with status/price changes but when I’m off there are no posts and no newsletters sent. There’s about 5500 houses on the site so you can always browse old posts, the search bar on the right lets you look at any time, period, price and status when I’m off or better yet, read past link exchange post comments. About the book of the week, I linked (click the photo or the title of the book) to the 1991 edition. Visit Amazon and click their “Look Inside” link/photo to check out the awesomeness of this book. Black and white and color photos along with illustrations of the different features, interior and exterior of residential architecture from the Tudor era to the 1970s. Take a peek at the illustrations of windows, doors, newel posts, floors, ceilings, walls, built-ins, metal work, lighting, mantels, stoves, hardware and even tubs, toilets and sinks! Last weeks book were for those interested in learning about the different styles, this book are for those wanting to know more about the details. There’s a 1997 edition: link and a newer 2012 edition: link or the 1991 edition linked above.

Log in to Reply krstout says: 54 comments 08/12/2017 at 11:17 am The Amherst house is beautiful and really nicely renovated. Curious about the taxes. According to Zillow the taxes went from $9K in 2016 to $24K in 2017. That’s a 168% increase!! Ouch. Log in to Reply RT says: 110 comments 08/12/2017 at 4:29 pm It looks like they did extensive renovations. You can see the lot is all dirt in Google maps. I assume taxes were much higher afterwards.

I also love, love the 1899 Victorian. Why is there a woodstove in the attic though, vented to the roof? Since there is duct work on the floor it cannot be so you can use the space? Or is it to heat the space to aid in heating the house? I also was wondering what is all the wall in the attic of the fixer upper. It has pipes going to it.

It was built by Fred W. Smart (1859-1936) for himself and his wife Cora. Fred crafted all the fine maple woodwork and floors, and built the carriage house. He also built boats, carriages and furniture, but his most famous project was Smart’s Steam Wagon, one of the first trucks ever built. https://books.google.com/books?id=3KfA_2CS2C4C&pg=PA42 Cora left the house to their nephew Ned Blodgett, who lived there until 1980. Originally, there was a finial on the left tower, cresting on the right, and a balustrade on the walk-out porch roof. The kitchen isn’t original but it’s vintage and nice – needs baths to match. The house ticks a lot of boxes, including beautiful, NRHP-listed, livable, inexpensive, authentic, peaceful location, big yard, low taxes (for NY). Snow doesn’t bother me (I just stay inside), but the somewhat remote hamlet location might. If only I was looking to move!

If you had young children or elderly parents or pets it would not work even as a second home. There is something about it also that gives me the willies. I know of a house in N.C. a friend owns on Lake Willey and is not this close to the water. When the house was opened for the season. It would take some time before you could stay in the house because everything is covered in that fuzzy blueish mold even on a hair brush in the bedroom, that might be why this one gives me the willies. Wonder how often the lake gets out of bank like in the spring with winter thaw also.

This would be right at home in RI but here in a place where the “cottage” reigns supreme and where the wealthy kept their structures understated this mansion is a standout. Built in 1907 I wonder how many Great Gatsby type parties it has seen? However, for 15 million dollars it needs a pool and some gardens and a barn. *wink* http://mainehomes.com/property/145-eden-bar-harbor/ Log in to Reply CharlestonJohn says: 1046 comments 08/17/2017 at 9:10 pm It seems Bar Harbor had quite a collection of gilded age “cottages” occupied by the same social elite that frequented Newport. The Depression, WWII, and a huge fire that destroyed dozens of them in 1947 put an end to most of it. Some still remain, however, and those that do tend to stand out as you correctly pointed out. This early 20th century Mediterranean Revival mansion with Beaux-Arts detailing is a very special property indeed.
