    I wish the listing description said if the statue came with. It’s interesting as heck next to that amazing entrance/staircase.

      Regarding the statue in the foyer, there aren’t double doors in the front to move it out, but then again, they got it in somehow. And how much would something like that weigh? I’ll be checking the listing again to see what the experts say. I’ve been learning a lot from the comments.

      I was just wondering about the possibility of getting hold of the statue. While I don’t hold with angels kidnapping a guy at the same time he could be a miscreant getting his just desserts. When I came home in the evening I would advise him to just quit with the histrionics and take it like a man.

      WHAT a house?! Woodwork?!

    1885 Italianate.

    Wow what a beautiful home and I agree that statue should stay. Is that a fireplace in the light green bedroom?

    How are we supposed to figure out where that last pic of the white columns is? Looks like parts of this mostly wonderful house are in need of repair, see hallway at top of the stairs.

    • AvatarDavid Sweet says: 187 comments

      Yes, Linda. I noticed the creative “cherry-picking” of photos as well. In my experience, this seems like one of those houses that needed more than one owner could give at one time. Maybe the new owners will have deeper pockets and finish the rest.
      If so, I hope we get a chance to see the results!

    The statue is St Michael the Archangel carrying someone who is holding up a rosary. The person could be the soul of a deceased person going either to or from Purgatory.

    Do we know what explains the black square on the upper story between the the front porch and the portico? It’s a lovely home.

      Harrisonburg, VA

      It looks to me like someone just started stripping the shingles. Actually, the whole exterior shows my own personal method of paint stripping and is what caught my attention in the first place! I strip over here as high as I can reach because I don’t feel like getting a ladder out. Work over here in the sun for a little because it’s cold today. Work on the porch columns when it’s raining. Make a bunch of test patches everywhere when I get bored and want to try something new. My wife hates it!

    I was born & raised in Oregon & Baker City is way far eastern Oregon, dang near Idaho so to have exterior bare wood is a bad thing. It looks like there is a large bare spot & I wonder if it is located on the exterior of the wall shown in the upstairs hall……
    I like the house, but seems pricey for the shape it’s in.

    i’m absolutely crazy about this unique home. The first words that came to mind were “deliciously dilapidated” which is always more appealing to me than perfection. I even like the 90’s era kitchen and would keep it as is.

      I’m with you Bethany, this house is simply outstanding. I like the kitchen too, what’re the odds?
      The first words I thought of were how surprising the inside looks—very good as compared to the exterior which needs scraping sanding and paint. But oh, how lovely. They had me when I first glimpsed the “port cochere”.

    Great curb appeal, the color is perfect.

    I was born in this town, spent a lot of my youth there into my 20’s. I’ve seen it 40 below there, watched a parade on the 4th of July while it snowed. There are a few dozen beautiful old homes there. Last time I was there I think there were 9 or 10 bars and taverns downtown. Old cow town/lumber mill town. Population then was about 10,000.

    After the outside, I was pleasantly surprised to see how nice the inside appears. I love the stairway and would fight hard to make that statue stay right where it is. I agree, that there are hints the pictures presented have been picked to highlight the nice features and not disclose the repairs needed. That was a total fail for us OHD’rs who know only too well that things are never quite as they seem! Happy Veterans Day everyone. My thanks to all who have or are serving, including their families.

    Love! Love! Love! It’s interesting and could easily be a total beauty again. That statue is AMAZING! I too, think it should stay right where it is, the gold cupids freak me out though.

    Baker City is undergoing an enormous transformation. It isn’t the cow town it used to be just a decade ago. Big money is pouring in from Portland. Some of the beautiful commercial buildings down town are being converted to condos. I agree that this place probably needs more work than a photo could show, and the price should hopefully be negotiable – but it reflects the current direction of this city. But talk about a cow town mansion! This is it!

    Have stayed overnight here about 20 years ago no pics but there is a fur locker in basement and a back staircase for servents it is an awesome house

      Do you remember where the painted columns in the last photo were? I wonder if they were relocated from the front hall and the square columns with transom there now are later, maybe fairly recent. Something about that doesn’t look quite original.

      It’s an interesting house for sure, and plenty big!

    Holy wow! Great place.

  15. AvatarCarole says: 31 comments

    If I bought it, anyone who wanted it could have the statue. Too much for my tastes. lol

  16. AvatarMISTERMICELY says: 60 comments

    Oh, I do like this house. This place just feels right. Anyone notice that back staircase in the kitchen? Those columns painted white in the last photo look odd. Two different styles and the one closest to the wall seems a little too wide at the top. Is it usual to see the two different styles together because it confuses my eye?

    I just love this home & that woodwork is amazing!! And the statue, just wow!! I think it should definitely stay, right where it’s at!
