    1988 Fake Greek Revival!

    Snecked stonework: “The principal characteristic of snecked work is the keying together
    of parallel courses of stone. This is achieved by interrupting the level height of a horizontal course by placing a taller stone that reaches up into the next course. This vertical interlacing gives a wall a tensile strength that enhances its compressive strength.” (Selectstone.com) It’s beautiful on this house, texture & interest from the use of different types of stone, including quite large pieces. I’m entranced with it. (Also love the shoes hanging over the fire, practical & cozy as heck when you put them back on!)

      I love the stonework as well. Thank you for the meaning of Snecked. It does look very sturdy. I also found the hanging of the shoes practical and it made me smile.
      They have a nice blanket of snow outdoors too.

      I saw those shoes too! A nice touch that I bet will help sell this house. That photo really makes this house look so homey. Like putting some vanilla in simmering water right before you have an open house.

    Wow! I love everything about this place! And that front door! I love that arched transom! Plus, it looks like a fantastic lot, as well. I’d move here in a heartbeat, and I haven’t even looked up where this town is!

    1885 Italianate.

    When I was a kid, we went ice skating as a school group once, have no idea where we were, but remember the warming cabin with a huge stone fireplace, everyone hung they’re skates on it. I love this home.

    Oh my! Wish there had been more pictures because I sure could use a small studio. Nice house for sure!

    Oh! Is that a bird’s next above in front of the transom window above the front door? Wonder if it’s a house finch?
