    The state preservation file from 1990 shows cresting above the front window bay, and in the parlor an ornate medallion, and a fine mantel with period tile and a mirrored overmantel. The fireplace is mentioned, so those features may still be there.

    The house was built for Dr. Charles Cook Murphy (1824-1874), a Civil War surgeon and respected local physician. He and wife Elizabeth Brewster raised their children here before Dr. Murphy’s early death. The house was later sold to the family of banker John Sears Hamlin who owned it into the 1940’s.

    Despite the obviously much later stained glass installations, I’m convinced those Aesthetic transom panels in the parlors are right; and very likely hints at a probably highly stylish original interior decor and fittings now long gone. What a CHOICE property.

    Goodness gracious, Kelly. Did you have a “fabulous windows” list you have been holding onto? As Rosewater said, these are newer but dang…. they are pretty!

    “Dang…. they are pretty” could really sum up how I feel about the house as a whole. Gorgeous details throughout. Seconding Rosewater again, it was likely more luxurious at one point, but the house has such style, it still feels elegant without even trying. Love it.

    I also want the room with the emerald couch to stay exactly as is. That room is probably staged, but everything in it needs to be included with the house. You could do a photo shoot with a rock star or cover model in that room, as is. Timeless
