    Solomon Riegel got himself a nice bannister. I love how the hand rail elegantly curves around at the switchback at the first landing. Much better than the heavy stuff that came later.

    I too like the stair and banister, but from my perspective, the most interesting aspect is the way the railing comes down in a seamless flow to a bombe, (accent on the e which makes it sound like the letter A saying its name), base instead of having a traditional newel post. This combined with the unusual shape of the rail and the elegantly simple turned balusters makes it really appear original to me. I would love it if any of you who are reading this and are familiar with this type of rail design would let me know what it is called and where you have seen it, because it unique in my experience.
    I think that this house has a lot of great stories to discover and be told to the conscientious restorer.

    What a handsome house. Hugely appealing from several aspects. Solid, bold, self-confident, masculine; my kinda house. I could live there.
