    Only four interior images?

    This house is a terrible tease.

    I am quite vexed!

    I agree Ross. The house has almost the exact same exterior as the one I lived in in Natchez. I’d have liked to see the interior to compare as well.

      Doris, are you familiar with the Southern Plantation B&B in your area? Is your home that B&B? Just curious is all. I would have loved to see more photos too. Maybe the agent will post more soon. Beautiful on the outside and quite the tickler as we wait for more interior.

    This house bears more than a superficial resemblance to a David S. Hopkins (Grand Rapids, MI) published design. Hopkins was a contemporary with George F. Barber and published nearly a dozen planbooks over his long career. Like Barber, Hopkins also advertised through the building trades journals as well as other mass media publications of the time. As others here have noted, more photos of the interior would be appreciated. I also think the house predates 1898 although only by a few years.

      Here’s a confirmed David S. Hopkins designed house in Logansport, IN with similar details to the Greensboro house: https://www.flickr.com/photos/11236515@N05/22260158688/in/album-72157659861547599/ The porch of the Logansport house is a later replacement. Here’s the actual design plan from D.S. Hopkins and it even more closely resembles the Greensboro house: https://www.flickr.com/photos/11236515@N05/34391799323/in/album-72157659861547599/ In an impromptu streetview tour, I saw several large Victorian homes in Greensboro that may have had planbook design origins.

      Hi John – We recently purchased this beauty and would LOVE to have more information on her architectural history! We will be embarking on this “New Adventure” (as we are calling it) over the next few weeks and months (years?). We are collecting a few historically respectful craftsmen to help us with upgrading the utilities (Insurance companies do NOT like knob & tube wiring and fuse boxes!!) and plan to restore as much of her original beauty as we can. All the comments were correct – those few pictures don’t come close to showing her amazingly intact beauty.

    Interesting newel posts, mantels, tile work, and overmantels.

    1910 Tudor/craftsman mix

    so pleased that it has stained woodwork intact, seems a bargain for someone, can you imagine it with the proper earth tone exterior paint job freshly done, it would be quite special

    This seems to be an incredible buy for the money, given there isn’t something super horrible in the other 98% of the home that wasn’t photographed. Lots of details to love and I do love that unpainted woodwork. The slim but tall windows, high ceilings, and almost 5,000 square feet of space are huge factors that really do it for me as well.
