    Wow! Nice house on a busy street. Good news is that the owners didn’t get the notice on painting the woodwork white. And, someone please help me here: Some Victorians have grandiose stairways, fancy and luxurious while others are more humble but just as beautiful such as this house. Is it because of different eras of Victorians? Styles? Thanks!

    The whole interior millwork is very conservative in regards to a lot of detail. Hench the stairs. Even the interior doors are simple and plain horizontal five panel doors. Some of the ceilings are bead board and would have been less costly to install then lath and plaster,

    The exterior of the home is absolutely beautiful – it just looks like a warm and inviting place. I love the interior, but I have to admit, the dark boards on the ceiling seem very heavy to me. I’m assuming this is original to the home so it would be a bit blasphemous to paint it a light color.

    This is such a beautiful home. I am a descendant of John C. Calhoun and did not know about this home. I would love to live here.

    Are we talking about the famous John C. Calhoun? If so, he died in 1850, so he could not have commissioned this house for his wife (or widow?). As far as I know John C. Calhoun never lived in Georgia. His home was in Clemson, South Carolina, and was called “Fort Hill.” There he lived from 1825 until his death in 1850. Perhaps there was a local notable named John C. Calhoun, but it’s not the famous one…. The house is beautiful, and it’s so refreshing to see woodwork not painted white. But, the disappointing thing is the decapitated mantels in the bedrooms. It appears to me that the tops, which nearly always featured mirrors and nice detail in the woodwork, have been lopped off. That was a fad that swept the old Victorian homes at some later time. Many a beautiful fireplace mantel was mangled in this fashion so that a picture could be hung above what was left of the mantel. Some years after the turn-of-the-century, the trend was to get away from intricate woodwork and towards plain doors, window facings, and plain, rather uninteresting staircases. A lot of irreplaceable beauty was destroyed in those years.

    The John C. Calhoun mentioned in the listing was a local judge and not the 1825-32 Vice President from South Carolina.
