    The interior is a pleasant surprise for Prairie/Craftsman lovers. Dark, yes, but oh so homey. The original light fixtures are a bonus. And don’t you just love the murals.

    I enjoy this house for its timbered look indoors and I find the stenciled wall paper in the kitchen delightful. I love the main stairway with the tall windows on the landing. Reminds me of the 1900 Tudor my grandparents had.

    Lutyens? Mackintosh? Sommmmebody was a fan. How interesting to see these great Arts and Craftsman features shoehorned into a standard issue Colonial. I always wonder with houses like these how an Architect ended up selling the builder on such an eccentric combination of design elements for their home. Does it work? SURE – why not?! 😉

      I’m sure the builder reined the architect in quite a bit. This house is VERY conservative compared to some of the guy’s other work, like this house and doctor’s office in Albany that was demolished:

        Yeah! Cooky great stuff Jim, thanks’! He certainly wasn’t a Macintosh copiest, but I LOVE the heavy borrowing of his sense of radical asymmetry in that building. Trip city.

    This house was part of an upscale suburban subdivision just north of Albany. The first owner was Claude Carlyle Nuckols (1880-1939), a Kentucky-born manufacturing executive. He and wife Susan Swindell raised their 5 children here, and after his death she lived here with her eldest son, Dr. C.C. Nuckols Jr.

    What a wonderful surprise – a Mackintosh inspired Craftsman with a touch of Tudor wrapped in a Colonial Revival disguise. Love it!

    what is that detail between the upper windows on the front of the house? I’ve never seen that before. That staircase! Wow! Why don’t they make them like anymore?
