    Yup, another one pulled from sampler purgatory. I’m certain there’s a great home here despite the listing photos struggling to show us. The exterior is fantastic for sure.

    We’ve talked about the term “Arts & Crafts”, that seems appropriate for this one.

      Arts and Crafts indeed, but seemingly inspired by that sensibilities earlier 1880’s beginnings when Colonial Revival elements appeared in high style Aesthetic Movement country houses. Specifically, If one compares the second exterior photo in this listing with a similarly angled view of the rear elevation of McKim, Mead and White’s Naumkeag house in Massachusetts, one can see how cleverly the architect of this more modest house has successfully simplified, while still managing to evoke, that masterpiece’s complex, Norman Shaw-esque massing. A multitude of chimneys is here reduced to a single example, but one given a powerful and inventive decorative patterning. A lovely, handsome house made even more appealing by the complimentary, and delightful, carriage house.

      Too bad about the numerous replacement windows, particularly the rectangular examples shoehorned into arched top dormers on the carriage house.

    This great house deserves better pictures. First orders of business: tone down and unify the interior color scheme, and easiest of all, remove the curtains from that awesome bay window in the stairway. The chimney and inglenook are first-rate.

    I *love* the exterior: the stone and shakes combo, plus its bays.
    Agree, the interior deserves better pics. Granted, it has dark woodwork, but virtually all of the rooms seem overly dark. I also think the paint scheme needs help, partially to lighten up the place, and hopefully be able to appreciate what it has to offer. And yes, let the landing windows show! If needed for privacy at night, shades of some sort could be used.

    Fantastic stonework has deeply recessed mortar which gives it the appearance of dry stacking – all the way to the chimney crest! Wow – what a great, and RARE, look. I can’t imagine the labor that must have taken: and seeing it in seemingly great repair 100+ years after installation is extremely impressive indeed. House has a real baronial feel to it. Hopefully it gets a new owner who appreciates it’s fantastic architecture and design, and makes it shine with the good taste and creativity it deserves. Hands off the fine vintage baths please. 🙂 Photos are a sad lot for sure. Try try again…

    My thoughts exactly StevenF. The photos are really hard to see in some places. Even still, it’s plain there is a beautiful house here.

    I love that Green Bedroom & the Burgundy Bathroom!! Actually I love the whole house! Yes there are a few colors I would change, but I really like the whole thing!!

  7. AvatarHandymam says: 65 comments

    I agree. The paint colors should be a little more neutral and light for the dark woodwork. I also think for this house to sell, it should be cleared as possible or staged.

    This is a really lovely area of Johnstown, btw.

    I would be happy to live in the carriage house! The stonework is beautiful on the main home, too bad the interior pics are so dark.

    That window nook is crying out for a good book to curl up with in the rain. After the curtains come down.

    I see this so many times. I don’t know if the upstairs is an add-on, but they have all that lovely darker Craftsman/Arts & Crafts wood and then they have painted it over or done all the trim in white upstairs, or, even worse, they paint it all white/lighter colors. It just kills me when people do that. It’s my opinion that if you don’t like the craftsman/arts & crafts wood trim, then why buy the house if you’re just going to take away from the original look?

    What happens when you buy a house with renters occupying it? Do they stay?
