    This is a cool place. What style is the exterior with those unique gables? It looks vaguely Dutch? Reminds me of old Nieuw Amsterdam or something.

    The kitchen is pretty to look at but has a less-than-idea layout; I would have liked to see the sink under the window next to the fridge. I love to look out the window while I do dishes 🙂 But what a stunning house, and really unusual looking especially for Wisconsin.

      Exactly on the mark about the kitchen, Bethany.

      Bethany I had to go back and look at kitchen pictures but you’re exactly right. Although the half wall with the bench and hooks is a cute idea, I also think it’s a bit intrusive of the space and as I looked backed at pictures the stove top is way too far away from the fridge, so this kitchen although beautiful is not really function as it’s laid out. It is beautiful though, and I would keep the style just change it up a bit.

  3. These are not two styles I would have expected to marry well, and yet I find this house very compelling. I love the bathrooms and even love the layout of the kitchen (understand I have only the loosest grasp of what a kitchen is for – besides setting the fire alarm off – so I’m not sure I should get a vote). Some of the door and window trim – and the main staircase – are painted white which isn’t my favorite (even if it is original; Victorians didn’t get everything right you know!), but in this case, I think I like it as it is. Very nice!

    I have a quick correction for you, Kelly: this house is in Columbus, WI, not Columbia. (It’s in Columbia county, which does make things confusing!)

    I love it when Wisconsin homes are posted. As a lifelong Wisconsinite, I think there is so much we have to offer that goes unnoticed or that surprises people when they hear it. Columbus is a cute town, not tiny but I’m not sure I’d classify it really as a city. I foresee in the next 20 years or so it growing as the Madison and Milwaukee sprawl reach out further and get close to meeting; Columbus is right between them, but a little ways north of the Interstate. This home appears to have easy access to the main road to Madison, though, so easy, if a little long, commute!

    Wow Kelly – no wonder you’re sick. you’re working way too hard. today’s lineup is so far beyond spectacular i can’t think of a word to describe it but THANK YOU!!!!!!
    what the heck is Mission Revival doing in MI. It’s like Mizner’s house in PA but I like it esp. details like that little shelf on the front of the porch for a box of flowers. Nice to see somebody build something really really different.

    Love the faux fire place mantel and the bathrooms. Great house.
