    Wowzers. The woodwork in this home is outstanding!! Sits pretty on it’s lot too.

    Don’t hate me, I’m digging their kitchen. The black with the dark wallpaper and chandelier gives it such a fun vibe, I’d want to wear a black velvet cape every time I cook!

      Kelly, I’d pay money to see that!

      It is a fun kitchen, but it wouldn’t be fun to keep the black cabinets free of smudges, especially after you go banging around in your black cape, smearing cooking grease all over! *giggle*

        Probably no harder than keeping other color cabinets clean. I’m constantly running after my husband when he cooks spaghetti to clean up splatter off our cream color cabinets. 😀

      I like the black, shabby chic, cabinets as a creative way to say “why spend a fortune”; and then maybe fun to chose a fresh new wallpaper, and or accent paint color, which better suits the new owner’s style if the whole look isn’t turn key for them. The chic shab. chandelier is really rad with that look! I really like all their color choices and the homes’ overall color story: and their parlor furniture is GORGE! Those rooms are decadently kitted out in perfect harmony with the very fine antique spaces they adorn: ++ very inviting and comfy looking, not museum-y at all. They are probably the most beautiful antique rooms I’ve seen this year, if not in even quite a while. Really yummy IMO.

        It is possible that the chandelier is actual Meissen or something; so forgive me for calling it shabby if so owner! 🙂

    The garage roof and the black and redish kitchen makes me think that the previous owner went through an oriental period in their lives.

    This is unique home from the exterior. Not at all common for 1882. Would be great to see some old photos because I’m wonder where are the 3rd floor dormer windows. From looking at the roof line and considering the age of this home there should be a third floor.

    I toured this a year ago when it was on the market. It is beautiful. The third floor is unfinished attic up an incredibly steep and narrow staircase. The owner has chandoliers in every room.

    Very lovely home. The woodwork on the first floor is very opulent. Must have been somebody of the upper gentry owning the home originally. Sorry, the kitchen didn’t do much for me. Always disappointed when the kitchen doesn’t flow with the rest of the decor in the house. The paint fairy was let loose on the second floor woodwork. Sorry, Kelly, it just bugs me to see that.

    Did anyone else notice the change in woodwork from the rest of the house to the music room? I really dig the San Francisco style trim in the rest of the first floor. I’m sure there is a name for it, I just remember a lot of that style in S.F.

    Somebody was obsessed with red,pink and every shade in between. The detailed woodwork and ornate chandeliers are magnificent.
