    Right decent price for a nicely preserved, spacious house with TONS of original details remaining, (including windows and storms), close enough for an easy commute into metro INDY. Going – going ——-.

    Sooooo not a plan book house? Experts?

    Nice example of a modestly priced Queen Anne that appears to be in move-in condition. I think the c.1900 date is a little too late, as you’d expect to see more transitional classical elements by that time. The 1898 Sanborn map clearly shows the house as being extant then, but older maps unfortunately miss this address by a half block.
    Shown here with the old address of 147 Adams St. near the intersection with Carey.

    Yet another example of a George F. Barber designed home. This is the John R. Carpenter residence. Carpenter was a poultry dealer in his day. The actual year of construction is likely several years earlier than 1900. The house is an example of design #38 and the staircase & newell posts appear to be an example of design #89, both from the “Cottage Souvenir No. 2” pattern book which was published in 1891. Looks like another great opportunity to own a Barber designed home.

    I wonder why they keep the gas pump in the house. Most people in Indiana keep them outside! This house does seem to have some interesting rooms.

    Really love the staircase. Very nice house.

    Thanks Chris for confirming the George Barber design provenance. There are some more modern alterations inside as well as some remaining period details. The exterior seems to be fairly unaltered. (which makes identifying it as a Barber design easier, IMO)
