    Beautiful old home.

    Almost as pretty as this other Vermont Stick, which has been on the market 3 years and needs a new owner pronto!

    Oh my, yes agreed Jim, both need new owners immediately! If I could take the harsh winters If be there in a Flash! These are both so stunningly beautiful in different ways!

    I can take the harsh winters, it’s the harsh lack of funds I can’t take!!! ? This is an exceptional beauty. Adore the street photo taken at dusk. Kitchen and bath need next to nothing. What a winner. Double lust.

    Elbow grease, few gallons of paint, sanding floors, and a little money would make this a beautiful home, or vacation spot. Love that its in the country. It’s a rehabbers dream.

    This is a spot on match for another “pattern book” or “mail-order” architect’s design. No, not George F. Barber, but David S. Hopkins. This is an example of Hopkins’ design #56 from his series of pattern books entitled “Houses and Cottages”, from around 1893 or thereabouts. I will email Kelly with the published illustration so she can include it with this post. This is one of about 10 or so examples of this design that I have discovered while hunting GFB houses. This would be absolutely spectacular if restored and preserved. I hope someone sympathetic to her history, snaps this one up. Thanks for posting this gem.

        Thanks Chris and thanks Kelly for sharing the Hopkin’s house plan design. Hopkins published at least ten plan books over his career but the earliest ones with the more ornate designs are the most elusive to find. While a figure of 20,000 sets of house plans sold by George Barber seems to be factual, I have no idea how many sets of plans D.S. Hopkins sold over his long career. Like Barber, Hopkins did change with the times and after the early 1890’s he increasingly leaned towards Colonial/Classical Revival style designs but, as mentioned, to me his most visually interesting designs are from the 1880’s. The 1880’s Hackley-Hume mansions (now museum houses) in Muskegon, MI, are arguably the finest residential designs by David S. Hopkins. Nice to see a more modest example being identified.

    Both. Both are just unbelievable. I wonder if the one Jim H posted sold, google street view wouldn’t find Bentley Av so it was probably never recored, curious.

    Jim is so good at remembering the properties which are relevant or comparable to new listings or re-listings. This one appears to need less work, yet the detail appears to be less interesting too. For the price, this looks like a better deal, but I have so little knowledge of the area that it is hard to tell if either is a good value. If there were houses that were similar that had sold it would be easier to evaluate. Perhaps those who are looking at these houses are seeing others in the area as better deals. I love to look at all of the characteristics that give me a good feeling. I think that that is why many of us follow the site nearly every day. I love it when a house comes up on this site and a follower of this site connects with it, is looking in that area, and buys.

    It’s so neat that the realtor snapped that picture from almost the exact angle as the sketch. When I first saw the realtor pic, I thought the rear had an addition where the roof slanted downward, but no.

    That is the prettiest sunburst pediment I’ve ever seen!
