    Today’s old photo is of the A. Cantwell house in Chesaning, Michigan. Another view of the home can be found in this link. I think “A” stood for Albert. I do not believe the home still stands although I hope someone finds out for certain.

    Today’s book recommendation is a Dover republication of Barber’s The Cottage Souvenir No. 2. Dover has republished many old planbook catalogs, eventually I’ll get to more.

    In the past I’ve recommended Michael Alcorn and Chris DiMattei’s more comprehensive Barber book, Architectural Ragtime, for those that love Barber or Victorian architecture it’s one of the better books out there and THE book for Barber fans. Amazon currently has a promotion, save $5 on $20 books sold/shipped from Amazon (code GIFTBOOK18), that does not include 3rd party books.

Glad to hear you are now WARM and comfy. It is a bad time of year to need a furnace replacement for sure. Hope we see some more of those FAB mid-mods you are known for sniffing out. Cheers! 🙂

      Knoxville’s Washington Avenue still has a number of Geo. Barber designed homes. If I’m not mistaken, I believe George Barber and his family lived in this house for a while. If it were mine, I’d have to put back the original turret. I love the bold colors on the house. Thanks for sharing

      I have the same kind of sandblasted glass in my front doors, made by the house restorer in the mid 1980’s. An unrestored house in this town with the same doors has plain glass, which I think is original. The 1914 Sears catalog shows an inexpensive line of etched glass with much more elaborate patterns. So it could be that 1422 Broadway has modern repro glass.
      You would think that some houses, at least, in the Near Northside of Indy would be intact and original from the 1880’s. I’ve never seen one, but then I don’t have a million dollars to spend on a house.

        Acid etched and sandblasted patterned door panes were common from the 1850’s to the early 1900’s. More expensive versions often employed flashed glass (clear glass with a colored layer overlaid and fused then wheel cut with patterns) for the panes. Even today, some specialty companies can reproduce acid etched and sandblasted patterns but I’m not aware of anyone reproducing the flashed colored glass with wheel cut patterns. There was an Austrian born and trained ornamental glass artisan based in California that did wheel cut work but I’m not sure he is still in business. The entry doors are likely to be made of American Black Walnut which was so popular for interior millwork that by the late 1880’s the supply was becoming very limited. Manufacturers then switched over to the more plentiful Oak for millwork. By 1920, Oak, especially of the quarter-sawn (“Tiger striped”) variety was becoming scarce and expensive. The 1920’s often employed veneers or cheaper woods like Birch and Poplar (commonly painted) for millwork and furniture.
        As for the Indy house, I didn’t think million dollar plus houses would ever be so numerous in that city.

        Yeah Ed. That’s real possible I suppose. I was just as shocked to see them in that seemingly perfect shape; especially with the matching transom glass set. After looking at that amazing formal entry for a while, (lusting), I decided that it all looked right to me, and that they must be untouched since new. There’s a side shot of the house on the web, and it does seem to have been gutted at some point, so you very well may be right. I love the whole thing either way. I love the patina and even the dust too. Very Lily and Herman Munster those doors. 😉

      OH MY GOD. James thank you so much for sharing. It’s a really great house – period: but I’m absolutely insane with deep admiration for the current owner’s tastes in color, texture, and pattern. That house is stunningly gorgeous inside and out, up and down, and side to side. That’s A LOT of look; yet it’s so light and airy, warm and comfortable. I have never had such a positive reaction to SO VERY MUCH chintz; but I love it, I really do. The place is divine. Not MY look; but WOW what a very beautiful gestalt. I would not TOUCH the double parlor. That fabric on the sofa and chairs is everything. Those meaty steel service stair doors with the AMAZEBALLZ ribbed glass are a stunning mystery.

    From Dayton, Ohio, is this huge (13,299 Square feet) mansion grade home said to date from 1924 and offered at a bargain $132,000 https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1101-Salem-Ave-Dayton-OH-45406/179496388_zpid/?fullpage=true Need more land? (an entire city block) the listing states: “You can make this home yours along with the entire city block. Additional properties between Kenilworth and Kenwood are for sale including 1123 Salem and 1131 Salem (both vacant lots), and 1111 Salem and 1127 Salem Avenue. The additional lot located between 1127 and 1111 is currently used as common and parking space.” Although some of the nearby residential areas may be sketchy, I believe the immediate area where this is located is relatively safe. A 3 bay garage is part of the package. For someone needing a lot of space, this formerly grand home might be the answer.

      Impressive house that looks similar to Wright’s Winslow House, which was radical in 1894. This one, almost conservative 30 years later, was built for department store executive Raymond Childs Adler (1897-1970). At $10 per square foot, quality real estate doesn’t get much cheaper than that!

        Thanks for the information, Jim. Like others, I had wondered about the 13,000+ square footage inside. I would think if that is a realistic number then both the attic and basement were finished out. I bet it was pretty posh in the 1920’s. The exterior finish still baffles me somewhat and makes me wonder if it was originally finished with bricks that were later stuccoed over? Really huge houses have limited market appeal because overhead costs (heating and maintenance) are higher as well as the lack of buyers who need over 5,000 sq, feet who are few in number. I could see this house having some kind of institutional use. It could also be a boutique hotel (with a Roaring Twenties theme?) or Bed & Breakfast. Hopefully, it won’t be divided up into a couple of dozen cheap apartments-this formerly grand home deserves better than that.

    • MW says: 677 comments

      It does look like a lot of house for the money. But somehow I am doubting that house is really 13.3K sf. 13K sf is really huge, like usually 8-10 bedrooms huge. It doesn’t even look close to that. Likely 4-5K at best, and probably not even that. Typo maybe, actually 3,299 sf?

      Regardless, it looks like it needs some work, but could be a really nice house fairly easily, and starting pretty cheap.

      • Keith Sanders says: 39 comments

        A satellite view on Google shows this house is of similar size to surrounding homes. There is an RV parked by the garage which also gives a reference for its size. It is a spacious, but not overly large home – 3,299 square feet may be a reasonable estimate.

      “Off Market” often means they just aren’t actively listing the property since interest wasn’t as strong as they had hoped or the winter season has killed it, realtor not officially listing it. So if interested in the house, just try to contact the previous agent and see if the owners might still be interested in a sale. If it hasn’t sold yet, a strong realistic offer might certainly do the trick and be a good time to try to get a house without the pressure of other potential offers coming in.

    A French listing. Not really for posting, more for sharing, because it screams poverty and kinda breaks my heart that there are still people living in these conditions.The house in itself is beautiful and so is the setting, but the inside reminds me of an old man I once knew who lived in such a decayed house, with no bathroom or toilets. https://www.leboncoin.fr/ventes_immobilieres/1515585517.htm/

      Not a lot going on for this house stylistically. I would classify it as “Colonial Revival” or Classical Revival and may have been built from published plans. The interior looks “tired” and needs a fair amount of cosmetic work. Xenia Illinois (not to be confused with the much larger Xenia, Ohio) appears to be a tiny town (pop. 391 in 2010) which based on the number of extant commercial buildings was surely considerably larger in the past. I found a higher definition photo of the house on Flickr: (by Bruce Wicks, a/k/a Tourism Guy) https://www.flickr.com/photos/tourismguy/4590240953 In summary, the house needs work but appears to have potential. Thanks for sharing.

      The interior is a sharp as a pin – impossibly pristine for a house that’s almost 50 years old. It looks it was brought forward from 1969 the day after the owners took possession. Time travel is real.

      Part of the fun of this site is that I get to imagine what it would be like to live about 50 or 100 different lives! What would my life have been like if I’d lived in this beautiful house in Columbus, Ohio? I’ve never been to Columbus, but I’d sure love to live in this house! I have only one life, and can only live in so many houses, but it’s fun to imagine the people and lives lived in all these different, beautiful places and houses. This is a wonderful old house. I hope the buyer appreciates it’s quirks and charm.

      Michael H., I’ve been studying Victorian era architecture since the 1980’s and can usually date a house from that era fairly accurately. With that in mind, I do not see anything to indicate an Antebellum (or “pre-Civil War”) origin for this house. Perhaps there was an earlier house on the site but nothing inside suggests a date earlier than around the 1870’s. I do believe the 1870’s house was updated with some 1890’s to early 1900’s details as well as the still later cement porch columns. When its all said and done, if you like the house, that is all that really matters, right? Thanks for sharing.

        John, The “Pre-Civil War Italianate” I put in quotes as that is what the listing agent used in her listing. I agree that it is likely incorrect. As for the 1894, I do know it is very difficult to date older homes in Columbus unless the owner has documentation, as all building records were lost in a fire in 1920. Subsequently, all older homes are listed on the franklin county auditor’s website as “old” or 1920.

      Seems like a fair value ($100K) for a mid-19th century Gothic Revival. The exterior ornament has a folksy appearance so perhaps this would fit into the “Carpenter Gothic” category rather than being considered a more formal example of the style. The interior also looks more informal than academic published examples of the pointed style.

    1929. This has so much charm; I love the quirky arches, little window in the stonework, the staircase, the kitchen cabinets…such a neat place.
    Seems like a bargain. $150K

      I love this little house! A few repairs, some paint here & there, and it would be perfect!

      Very sad and indeed a waste of something so beautiful.

    I think someone may have shared an article about this home being demolished or maybe I’m just remembering reading about it. Either way, the outcome…

      1889 Eastlake Cottage
      Fort Worth, TX

      Cooper is a small rural town of just under 2,000 population 82 miles northeast of Dallas (by the shortest route) Published sources say that Cooper began as a town in the 1870’s with rapid growth after a rail line reached the town in the 1890’s. This Queen Anne style cottage likely dates to the late 1890’s as claimed. The interior looks fairly intact except for the modern brick faced fireplace. House prices usually become more reasonable the more distant one travels going east from Dallas with bargains often found in the many small towns of east Texas. There’s another well preserved similar aged cottage across the street suggesting this residential area dates from the turn of the last century. Because of this house’s distinct details, I think it quite likely to have been designed from a set of published plans or a plan book of that time. Thanks for sharing.

    I believe I have commented on this house before, but I love it so. Would love to have the kitchen alone.

    I was reading a Victorian memoir about country houses and looked up Hewell Grange on Wikipedia. It is now a prison! The manor house is still there, but contains cell blocks, as well as a dormitory-style low-security block. The last of the private owners gave the house to the Government when he couldn’t pay the death duties. I think dividing it into apartments like so many big houses here and in Britain would have been a better fate.

    For what I’m looking for, it is set up rather perfectly. I would have bought it too!!! …had it not been a little over my head in need of repairs
