    What a grand and elegant home. The facade when fit in perfectly in Stockholm, Sweden. The interior exudes wealth and elegance. I can’t believe the curtains are still in place if you didn’t want to use the pocket doors. The decor is a little over the top for me but I don’t think I’d change a thing except try to make the blue dining room as over the top as the rest Beautiful woodwork, plaster moulding and that stained glass scene in the staircase is stunning. I love it!

    Local info says this fine house was built in three stages: the central block as a Greek Revival house in 1836, the rear addition in 1878, and the front section with “Dutch gables” in 1902. That’s a lot of history, and there’s ample space for a variety of uses.

      You haven’t seen the big red box that said that favorites are going away? It said the link to save favs would be removed 11/30.

        Nope. Just a slight lament to see it missing. This is the first one I saved to my new links folder after the feature went poof. 🙂

        I saved all my faves links; and will at some point be making an album of them on Flickr, with single cover pictures of each one, and then the corresponding OHD link in each description; so I can still easily reference them. The fun thing now will be my ability to share them if anyone wants to peruse the ones that really interested me, and why probably in the description. Many were lost in the purge, but there’s still a bunch.

      If you have a Pinterest account just create a board for your OHD faves. Someone suggested that a while back when Kelly announced that this feature would disappear, and that’s an easy way to proceed. I went through all of my OHD faves and pinned them all not to loose them, and I add some more on a daily basis.

    What a gorgeous stained-glass window. I love the delicate color shadings. I’m also a big fan of tiger oak, so that’s another favorite feature. Cool round bathroom window, too.

    Although my travels through the Keystone State have been limited, I found it a place full of architectural surprises. The town of Waynesburg-which I have yet to visit-seems to be especially rich in beautiful 19th and early 20th century homes and buildings. I seem to recall a large but faded Prairie style home there that appeared on these pages years ago but it was priced decidedly on the bargain side. This house was and still is elegant inside and out. I can’t find the total square footage but it appears to be expansive inside. Because of the location, I could see this as having a dual residential-commercial use. With some enhanced landscaping, I think the curb appeal could be increased substantially. Perhaps a future visit to Waynesburg needs to be added to my bucket list because there’s is so much to see, based on the streetview imagery.

      I used to go there for work, there are definitely some cool old buildings. It’s a small college town, unfortunately some of the roads have been torn up mostly from heavy oil and gas traffic, but they’re working on repairs. One of my customers is a cute ladies’ boutique downtown in an old theater…they tried to run it as an Indy theater but just couldn’t break even so they use it for storage. Pretty interesting place! Waynesburg is also commutable to Pittsburgh, and is close to the Morgantown/Clarksburg areas of WV, which are really growing with a lot of medical and tech jobs, and a major FBI Center close by (I think the CODIS fingerprinting system is run from there). Plus WVU and it’s teaching hospital system which is growing like crazy.

      House – 2 floors (83′ x 32′) and 1 floor (12′ x 32′) = 5,696 sq ft.
      Basement – (71′ x 32′) = 2,272 sq ft. (Assuming no basement under front part of house.)
      House (total) = 7,968 sq ft.
      Carriage house – 2 floors (60′ x 37′) = 4,440 sq st.
      Total (house & carriage house) = 12,408 sq ft.
      (Based on outer dimensions measured in Google Satellite.)

      Carriage house sits at the intersection of Blackberry Alley & Strawberry Street – cool.
      My old bones would enjoy the elevator.
