    I like the exterior’s color scheme. And IMO, a good idea to show inside the kitchen cabinets which have pull-out shelving – they make retrieving items sooo much easier!

    Wow–a lot bigger than it looks from the front. That enfilade of rooms on the east side just keeps going and going…

    That’s a very nice kitchen with very nice cabinets, but I would still be compelled to gut it out and start over, because oh my god, the symmetrical bay! It makes me _need_ to design and build a symmetrically balanced kitchen to fit it. I wouldn’t be truly content until I had my Jenn Air pro series range centered between the windows like an altar to culinary art.

    I lived in an Italianate On Staten Island (sadly gone due to fire) and the front windows on the first floor were just like these. There was a porch so you could go out in the summer thru them. Do you think there might have been a porch at one time?

    We moved to Iowa from TN almost 2 years ago. Vinton is the next town over from ours. A very cool and quaint town . It is called the ” city of lights”, because of all of the old fashioned street lamps they have that line the town. They have several family parks, a water park, Kirkwood college, and many employment opportunities. Not to mention Virginia Gay hospital. Wish we could have found this deal before we bought the ranch we bought in Urbana.

    From the NRHP report – Central Vinton Residential Historic District
    1003 B Avenue. 06-00898, J.A. McDaniel House
    Built in 1867, this two-story, Italianate dwelling was constructed as the home of J.A. and Florence McDaniel. McDaniel was born in 1827 and moved to Vinton in 1856 and opened a mercantile store downtown known as McDaniel and Tracy. He had this dwelling built in 1867 following his marriage to Florence Hewes. In addition to his mercantile business McDaniel also was known for his horse breeding operation on several farms. The house has a stuccoed foundation, aluminum siding, original one-over-one and six-over-six wood sash windows, an interior, brick chimney, and a hip roof of asphalt shingles with a square cupola. On the façade there is an entrance bay with a gable roof canopy supported by knee brace brackets. The façade facing 10th Street has an entrance with an original glass and wood door and an arched transom. Above the windows there is elliptical hood molding, and the windows have original, arched, louvered wood shutters. On the west elevation is a two-story projecting bay. At the roofline are paired eave brackets and modillion blocks. The cupola has original brackets and arched windows. On the side elevation is an enclosed porch. On the rear elevation is a one-story wing. Behind the house is a ca. 1910 frame garage with weatherboard siding. (Contributing)
