    A round of applause to the realtor who takes almost 100 photos! There is so much to love about this house and if it wasn’t 2hr 45 min commute to my office, I would go look at it IRL but I’m afraid I would have a hard time walking away once there

    I’m trying to understand the cabinet doors on the bathroom door in picture 36. That said, I love the house and all the wonderful original details

    Kansas has always been full of old house surprises and nowhere is that more evident than in many of the agrarian state’s smaller towns and cities. Fort Scott, Atchison, Emporia, and, based on this house, Coffyville, probably needs to be added to the list of Kansas communities with interesting historic architecture. I regret only visiting Coffeyville once back in the winter of 2000-2001 when a wrong turn on the route going to Fort Scott took us very briefly to this town. We found deep snow covered many of the streets upon our arrival. Because of the snow, I wasn’t able to look extensively around the town as I often try to do. I did observe several nice frame Victorian homes including one that appeared to be a George F. Barber planbook design.
    Even though geographically Coffeyville is somewhat remote, the railroad connecting towns with the rest of the country made it possible for the most ornate lavish mansions to be built in the smallest of communities in the late 1800’s. I don’t readily recognize this house from a published plan source. There were also regional architects in places like Topeka and Wichita who designed fine homes in surrounding communities. More research could probably pin down the design source. The interior decor choices are generally sympathetic to the style and age of the house. Surviving period touches like the ornate tin ceilings, fine stained glass windows and general high quality millwork indicate the original goal was to reach mansion status. The entry doors appear to be from the late Teens to early Twenties with even later exterior doors creating a vestibule space between them. The original porch columns or posts have been replaced but still the house is more intact than many from this period. The price seems favorable even for a smaller town where real estate sales are likely to not be as active as in bigger cities. Overall, this is a fine looking quality home of the period.

      Thanks for your insights, John. I wondered about those porch columns—in fact, I wondered about the whole porch itself.

      John? John (administrator) from Yahoo Groups? Loved your forum but Yahoo petered out and I haven’t used it in years. Always enjoyed your knowledge and insight. Followed you during your stint in St. Joseph, MO. So nice to have bumped into you again. It looks like you haven’t sold your house yet. I love this site!

        Hi Poor Royal,
        Yes, I’m that John… The Yahoo group, Victorian Architectural Review, or “VICARR” for short, is still around: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/vicarr/info but about as busy these days as downtown Coffeyville at 3 AM on a Sunday morning (during a heavy downpour) Perhaps I exaggerate slightly but Yahoo groups generally have been in decline for years. I’ve considered taking the group over to Facebook but I just don’t have the extra time these days. Still showing a membership of 641 but nine tenths of those never post anything. Back in 2008, we had nearly 300 posts for one month but this month only 3. Anyone who is interested in discussions about Victorian era architecture is welcome to stop by and say hello. These days with less free time available I tend to spend it here so hopefully I won’t wear out my welcome. As for selling our house, its almost a joke these days but not a very funny one. Thanks for the kind words about the old Yahoo group.

    Amazing bargain! That little door in the bathroom is really cool! I would love to see what is inside! The stained glass in the stairwell is absolutely beautiful! The tin ceilings amazing and there is an in ground pool! I only wish that is was closer to me 🙁

    I love the curve on those stained-glass windows in the stairwell. And it’s so refreshing that a homeowner actually took pains to redo the tin ceilings!

    This house has everything….fretwork, stained glass, lovely woodwork, back staircase, pocket door, tin ceiling and it is brick. I agree with John, Kansas has some wonderful homes.

    Would have loved to have seen the original kitchen. And the black and white checkered floors are unfortunate but easily remedied. A stunning home indeed!
