    It feels like a couple of fireplaces were removed-maybe when the columns were installed between the front back parlors. Small details on a beautiful cobble stone house.

    I find cobblestone masonry stunning, especially in person. The majority of cobblestone masonry is found within an 80 mile radius of Rochester, NY, The Cobblestone Society and Museum are located approx. 30 minutes away from this fine home.

      There is a Cobblestone Society Museum on 104 (Ridge Rd) in Albion. An interesting but small collection of cobblestones are here, including a large church. On the opposite corner there is an excellent (although I haven’t been there ina few years) restaurant, also Cobblestone, that was once a stage coach stop/inn on route 104. I used to live in Rochester, and on the kind of short trip back home to Lockport to see family, I’d drive as slow as anyone behind me would allow, often pulling over, just to look at Cobblestone houses.

      If you are intrigued by the international popularity of cobblestone architecture consider Paris (that’s the one in Ontario, Canada). Voted by Harrowsmith Magazine “the prettiest little town in Canada”, Paris is also know as “the cobblestone capital of Canada”.

      The town boasts numerous, fine residential structures and at least 2 churches constructed using cobblestones. The local newspaper featured some of these buildings in an article: http://www.brantfordexpositor.ca/2013/08/30/cobblestone-houses-in-brant-something-to-treasure

    I’ve been watching this one for a while–definitely one of my favorites. Although I’m not fond of it being on a main drag (104), it’s far enough from the Madding crowd (being a graduate of SUNY Brockport’s English program, I couldn’t resist). When I lived in the area, 104 that far out, wasn’t heavily trafficced with 18 wheelers.

    Nice cobblestone. That has to be the most elegant little privy on the planet.

    Was surprised to see this 1846 example, (drastically altered around 1900), as far afield from this as South Beloit, IL, which is about mid-state, right on the IL / WI border. I suppose that location would be similar to this regarding the glaciation which provided these stones in abundance. Christy shared it a couple of weeks ago.

      I love the staircase in this link Rosewater, and also the powder room with the cobblestone inside. Nice!

      aaahh! I think I love this one even more than that Parma home!!! Reminds me some what of the little houses up north of me in Petoskey Mi., the mushroom houses.

    I think it shows how the craftsmen moved west with business. Do you know of any other Cobblestone houses in the mid west?

    I wasn’t sure if I could find this video, but it gives you a sense of the house. It also reveals a number of rooms not depicted in the photos, like the first floor powder room. http://www.bayervideotours.com/tour/4929-west-ridge-rd-rochester-ny-14559

      Thank you Tim for sharing this lovely video! It was great to see the home in a way that seemed more friendly.

    Gorgeous cobblestone in seemingly nice repair. The two panel doors! The classical window and door surrounds!

    It’s a beautiful sunny (if frozen) day in Western New York…I may just take a drive….

    I just want to put some furniture in this baby LOL. Maybe not my style but she sure is sweet. Love her exterior!

    Beautiful Greek Revival example, albeit slightly “modernized” later as seen especially in the differences of the interior window casings….. from fabulously exaggerated, “ears,” to the victorian corner blocks in some first floor rooms. But the six-over-six glazing and the typical frieze band windows so exemplifies the Greek Revival style of the period. Thanks for the video, with furnishings intact and the sense of real life it evokes, makes me wish to move there, winter snow and all!! It’s a cozy house, and I especially liked the ’40s round mirrored dressing table shown in the video……cool!!

    EXCEPTIONAL example of cobblestone architecture and craftsmanship! I’ve driven by it MANY times on Rt. 104 and it IS a sight to behold! Simple, elegant and sits as confidently in the landscape as The Queen does on her throne.
