    I was thinking the 1907 date was a bit late, but I guess not. Was the wraparound porch with the Corinthian columns part of Barber’s original plan?

    From the NRHP…

    304 S. Main Street. W. A. Brown House. Queen Anne, 1907. 2 story,
    stone foundation, vinyl siding, asphalt shingle hip roof with gable front,
    1/1 and multi/1 double hung sash windows, irregular plan. Wrap around porch
    with Corinthian columns, dentil molding on porch cornice, balcony above part
    of porch with turned columns, millwork in gables,

      C-John, the house is identified (Wiki) as Design #37 from Barber’s Modern Dwellings #3, 1901. If that’s the original, the porch has been altered as you suggest.

      I was curious about the porch columns as well. It would be nice if there were some old pictures of the house around to see the original porch columns.

      C-John, yes, a wrap-a-round porch was part of the original design, as the Barber catalog that Jim linked in shows, but those Corinthian columns were not, and consequently look horribly out of place. Still, it would be fairly easy to replace them with turned posts, like those supporting the balcony above. The Brown home is one of two extant Barber designed homes, built in Pikeville, that I am currently aware of. I really hope someone restores this gem. It could be spectacular.

    Those heavy columns supporting the porch really make this house. It’s such an unexpected element that really adds a lot of weight to the home and makes it appear larger than it really is.

    Well, y’all can have the European houses, I’ll take this. Give me an old Southern house any day.

    Elegance at its best! I always have a soft spot for the Barber designs.

    I am the new owner and in my digging to understand the original vision of the house i stumbled onto this thread. The original blueprint was followed but modifications were made. It was renovated in 73 and again in the late 90s. I want to find the front porch lattice work as pictured on the wiki and the 13 columns (13 original colonies) seem to be requested by the original owner. The house is currently undergoing massive updating and cleaning. The entire upstairs, downstairs foyer and kitchen were updated to drywall while the main parlour, dining room, sitting room are still horsehair plaster. The woodwork is still in great conditions but will be sanded down to stain dark walnut. All carpet has been removed to reveal the original hardwood floors that will also be refinished in dark walnut stain to match the other woodwork and mantels. If anyone has any ideas I’d love to hear them.
