    Wow! RAD tower / attic shots! Thank you agent. I’m sure they had fun taking them; I sure would have! 🙂

    There is always something so calming about a grand Italianate or Second Empire house. Enter and you feel protected and engaged. The architecture always stands sturdy and assured, creating open and light-filled rooms that are gracious and deep. Each room feels like a house within a house, and the soaring woodwork and ceilings help feed the imagination as to the realms high above. These styles convey stature with simple but grand gestures, and seem to never work too hard to impress. I love all Victorians but these blow me away with their self confidence.

    Wonderful house with much of its character intact, originally the centerpiece of a 600+ acre farm and stock-raising operation. Early observers and the National Register were also impressed by the huge 1879 barn that flanked the house until the 1990’s.

    Bio of Christopher C. Walker (1829-1913) written before the house was built:

    It’s amazing that this house still retains so much original and unpainted woodwork; it’s absolutely beautiful. It wouldn’t surprise me to find that this house might be a bit older than the stated build date of 1884 – it looks as if it is at least a decade older. It appears to be missing its exterior cornice; the attic windows should be surrounded by a cornice with requisite bracketing. The adjacent and older structure must have an interesting history as well… I’m curious about their connectivity.

    I’m surprised that there isn’t any crown moulding in the house.

    Love 2nd Empire italianates! As a European, i often find weird to see such opulent houses being farm houses and set right in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by land.

    The house is incredible and has some great spaces but I find myself drawn to that great attic space!

    I absolutely agree that the house is incredible, but my jaw dropped when I saw that attic space! Just a wide open space with wood floors~I would have to dig out the old roller skates!
