    OMG. This is my absolute dream Italianate, but not spooky. It’s like a mirror image. I am pretty sure my mouth was hanging open while I scrolled.

    All that house in such beautiful condition for only $295k? I can buy some burgundy or purple wallpaper and a few gallons of paint stripper. Bring it on.

    Of all the wonderful features of this building, I am most impressed with Photo #20 – the french-curve, half Mobius transition of the stairwell wall to the 2nd floor hallway ceiling. Very nice execution.

      Dr. Peterson, that’s what I would have said too if I could speak Stairway as eloquently as you! Thank you for defining the exquisite detail that simply made my jaw drop.

      As a French woman, i was wondering about the meaning of a French curve, but Google showed me the answer. I wouldn’t have known the name in French either. Apparently we call it a “pistolet” (pistol) or a “perroquet” (parrot). Thanks for the piece of culture 🙂

    Lots of updates, and the tower and staircase make it all worthwhile.

    I am often afraid to look at the decor when a listing says that the house is a former B&B. This one , although decorated, does not have the over the top miss mash that the former B&B mention brings to my mind. It is simple and elegant. I am confused as to the reference to cathedral ceiling, because I don’t see one, but overall, I could move in to this one as-is. Really nice!

    Please don’t hate me but, in this house, I think the white trim works. I love this house.

    It looks like the “garden” bathroom is in the third floor turret! The white pickett fence is the upper stair railing. There’s a better picture of it on the realtor’s site. All of the ironwork on the exterior and fence is wonderful.

    Okay who else saw the city name, The spikes on the tower, and the all caps realtor description and wanted to scream WE ARE SPARTA!!!

    Anybody? Bueller? Okay. (slinks off).

    I love this house. The staircase alone is just fabulous. It needs to be rescued from the 1980s but with very little work it could be a complete showstopper again.

    I love these italianate winding staircases, they’re so gracious! And the cherry on top of it is the curve of the wall above it in the upper level! i also like the thin darker lines on the floor all around the foyer. A beautiful house!
