    I’m crazy about this house. Pretty close to perfect to my eyes!

    Looks like the formal rooms of the downstairs still retain their combination gas-and-electric light fixtures, which if they still work for both lighting forms, are rather a treasure.

    I’m sorry to interject this here, but in the last picture….. Am I seeing what I think I’m seeing?

    I zoomed in, and it did not make any less certain that I see what I think I’m seeing.

    Lots of originality left here, including the very nice gasoliers. Wonder what happened to the cap on the tower? Wish there was a historical pic.

    Tell me the parts to the mantle are lying around somewhere out of the way, please.

      Ganked no doubt. “Shrinkage”, from the house sitting empty and unprotected. Judging by the lovely, quality tile, it was probably a VERY nice piece. I’m sure the tweekers who “picked” it got a decent price from the “antique salvage” they (probably) sold it to. Not an uncommon occurrence these days with the value of antique fixtures skyrocketing in the last so many years: as well as the more common knowledge of their value by low life thieves.

    From the snaps posted the last one appears that this room does need some work. The lincrusta needs a broom with a towel bound arond the bristles to rid of the dirt and dust, check for loose ends repaste those areas, then a coat of kilz — now the fun with choosing what color(s) to help make it pop. Hope the seller leaves all the treasure, go through and keep all the goodies, the wheel cultivator on the front porch. Wonder if the area on the right side of exterior is mold due to tree canopy overhang or just extremely dirty?

    I searched the house name and came up with this national Register of Historic Places Registration Form which gives a complete description of the house, its history and biographical details about the architect and the man who commissioned the house: http://www.wvculture.org/shpo/nr/pdf/braxton/04000356.pdf
    This Google maps view is virtually worthless because it is from the bridge over the Elk River where it intersects Stonewall street. This view aims towards the house, but it is just out of sight. From the other end of the bridge, on Riverview Drive, there are trees that are on the Stonewall side that also block the view of the house. The car taking pictures in this town for Google’s street view obviously turned right at the end of the bridge shown in this view and never passed in front of this house which is to the leftso there is no real street view. I am posting this view because I have hopes that some internet genius knows how to get a closer street view.
    Isn’t it crazy the things we will do to get a look at a house which we know we will never buy?

    The house was nominated to the National Register for its association with William Edgar Haymond (1855-1931), a local corporate attorney who represented large railroad, coal and lumber interests. He won some famous business cases and gained a fortune in the process. The house has been neglected, and abused with the addition of aluminum siding and other “improvements”, though a devoted effort could return it to its turn of the century grandeur. The wallcoverings, either Anaglypta or Lincrusta, could be restored to their original look. Really cool house!

    Love the wall covering and ceiling/cove in the staircase hall. Does anyone know if that’s most likely to be Lincrusta, Anaglypta, or plaster work?

  10. Lucinda Virginia says: 54 comments

    Oops–never mind. I see as I read the description that it is Lincrusta.

    When u do the street view at the T, there are stairs going up the another set going far there straight up to what looks like a large old unpainted home. Love to get a better view of it! Really like the house posted. So many possibilities.

    wrong for my taste

    Oh…..it’s so close to the road. If they ever have to widen it, they will take that house πŸ™

    Interesting house, beautiful ceiling/lighting fixtures. Curious why there are no photos of kitchen.

  14. Ashley403 says: 14 comments

      Thanks’ Ashley. Uch! How awful. You can tell at least one of them was replaced, probably with a VERY fine example, after the house was built. The original wall paper is visible within the ghost of the missing mantle. Could be a past foreclosure scrounge. Damn shame.

    I love those wall coverings and all of that woodwork! I love this home and it’s such a great bargain! I hope that someone will buy her and make her beautiful!

  16. Lucinda Virginia says: 54 comments

    The Lincrusta pattern is shown in the “Catalogue of designs of Lincrusta-Walton, manufactured by Fr. Beck & Co., branch of National Wall Paper Co.”, c.1890, which is available for free viewing at https://archive.org. It’s about halfway through. The picture is there, but no identifying text (automatic scanning of books fails, sometimes). No sign of the matching cove border. Might be worth buying the reproduction of the book, now that I know the pattern is in there.

    What a beautiful house! Wish there were more pictures of the upstairs and the kitchen. I really enjoyed reading about the history of the house and thank Joe for finding that.

    Who outed my house? D:
    This is my target area and I am really working on hubby to buy it!

    • Randy C says: 426 comments

      I hope you are successful. Please keep us posted!

      I posted some OLD listing photos earlier- Several show pretty significant areas where LEAKS have been, with plaster off and damage. Could be lots of ROT and Black Mold too! You can see what looks like a refrigerator near a door in what could be the kitchen- and only lathe on the walls! So the whole kitchen could be gutted. Take a look through the old zillow Rental and old Trulia for sale listing pics! I agree it is a great house, and I love the woodwork- double pocket doors, and other details. Good luck if you are trying to buy- just be sure you have enough $$ to fix it right.

    I grew up in Sutton, this house used to be one of the most beautiful on the street. I remember when I was little there used to be iron cresting along the top of the tower, it matched perfectly to the iron fencing. I was only inside it one time when I was little in the front entry and there used to be patterned carpet on the stairs and flooring…glad to see the carpeting is gone!

    What a GREAT DEAL for this house!!!It has so much potential. It just needs someone to love it again. If I only lived in that state I would purchase it ASAP!

    Wow. I have a question or two on this one that im sure someone can help me with. But first..Lots of great comments on this one. I love it too! I hope thats the narrow end of the top of the grand piano leaning just inside the doorway and that little corner sink is just fab!It looks like a good clean-out crew could have it habitable in a week.If the water and electric are ok. If a person were to pay cash and had..lets say $40K immediately then 10k yr to spend on rehab, where would you start? It doesnt say whether the roof, heat, plumbing,or electric needs help but maybe someone has seen it?

      This house is on my street. To answer a few questions I have been in this house several times since being listed for sale. The house is close the road and the road has already been widened. It used to only be a very small one lane. It currently is two lane and will fit tractor trailers as there is a wood mill about a mile past this home. As far as damage there is no kitchen, it has been completely gutted. There is no heating/ac as listing states. There is however an HVAC that needs installed including all duct work. The electrical needs updated. The roof has leaked significantly. The 2nd floor the right side is in ok shape. Two bedrooms are usable and a tiny bathroom. The left side is straight out of a horror film. Peeling wallpaper to the floor, plaster broken, ceiling falling in, no third bathroom only a frame of walls where one was. The third floor has a hole cut out in the roof on hinges to allow roof access, but oddly enough there is no way to keep water from leaking inside around this hinged/hole. The cabinets are still at the home for the kitchen currently sitting in the parlor. When I viewed the home about 2 years ago with the intention to buy there was very little left inside such as antiques etc. The piano is no longer there. Mostly what is left is junk and trash.the back porch is also falling in. It looks similar to the the front with columns but I was weary about walking under it because it is in extreme disrepair. The back lot is all hillside and overgrown with brush. The basement stairs are in need of total replacement. The cool thing about the basement is it has dirt floors and possibly limestone walls. I have wanted this home for a long time but I am afraid it may be past the point of no return. I have talked to the owners several times and the bank will not process a loan for it due to its shape. It would almost have to be a cash buy. There has been some recent vandalism with broken windows. My dream is to buy it, however if someone here does please keep us updated! If anyone is interested I could take more outside photos.

    I would like to rent this space as an art studio. The dilapidated state of the house and its historic aspects interest me and I would like to document this through a series of paintings, drawings, etc. Is there any way to get in contact with the owners to try to rent this space as a studio until it is sold?

    Just wanted to let everyone know that this beauty was recently purchased. The new owners are in love with the home and have started work on it already πŸ™‚ https://www.facebook.com/William-Edgar-Haymond-House-1264523363672928/

    We seriously thought about buying this house until I saw how close the Elk river and the Elk river dam was….. I would never slept a wink. I’ve had nightmares about a dam breech my whole life!
