    I was going to post more but holy moly am I ever just burnt to a crisp out of it (not literally, mentally.) I think I’m going to take the rest of this week off, get back on the horse Monday (save for tomorrow’s link post.)

      Sounds like it’s time for a 1995 Pride and Prejudice pajama day! Or House of Eliott. Or Cranford. Or . . . .

      Kelly, I thought you were planning to take the past week off – what happened?! Please, for everyone’s sake – and especially your own – give yourself a break!

      Lovely house, BTW. Would love a glimpse of kitchen and bathrooms – hint, hint, in case the realtor is reading… : )

    I love that fireplace. Always a big fan of that type of brick fireplace. The woodwork is really nice. Too bad the hall is painted.

    The relatively sober exterior didn’t prepare me for the detailed Colonial revival woodwork in the entry hall, of which I confess to liking the painted color. It doesn’t really fit with the rest of the house prompting me to wonder if it was the result of a later remodel. The cool arts and crafts brick fireplace is another reason I think the front hall woodwork may be a later addition. It’s pretty rare to find a fireplace like that in a colonial revival house.

    What is that other yellow structure? Is that supposed to be the detached 3-car garage? If so, it’s cleverly camouflaged as a HOUSE!

    I love the entry hall woodwork with the graceful columns and the heavy greek revival mouldings. I can live with them painted since the rest of the home has so much beautiful natural woodwork. It’s funny how a photo can make a house look bigger or smaller because I really expected this home to have a lot more square footage than it does. The original owners didn’t want to wow the nosy neighbors with an extravagant facade and instead spent the money where they would enjoy it most on the classic interior details. Very nice!

    Sitting at the top of Bass Hill, this former home of George Henry Bass overlooks the famous shoe factory that bore his name. I agree the classical interior doesn’t seem to match the 1890 build date.

    we love old pics…

    from Bass Hill looking down the hill to the G.H. Bass shoe factory in 1908…

    and in 2011…

    Beautiful inside. Bathrooms and kitchen??
    Not a fan of the yellow exterior; I would repaint it, but I have no idea what color! Lol

    Your pictures from 2015 are so much better, Kelly! This is a grand old house and again makes me want to live in Maine!
    Sorry you are feeling depleted! Hope you can get away for a couple of days and revitalize. Best wishes!

    Haha! The 2nd pic reminded me of the film Baby Boom w/Diane Keaton. This house is much larger & located in Maine, but all of the beautiful snow & the yellow house with white trim…..

    Love a sink in the bedroom, reminiscent of bowl & pitchers!

    There is another house further up the same street that was on this site! Don’t know if it has been “purged”.
