    WOW! That stairwell and entrance is outstanding! Excellent curb appeal, too! Great price and size!

    They seem to have dropped the ceilings in most of the rooms considerably, probably at the same time the out of period archways were added. However, the woodwork in this house is just amazing, and mostly unpainted. Beautiful!

    The state CRIS file says that the house was built by George Heim (1832-1908), a retired farmer and carpenter. Both born of German immigrants, Heim and his wife Barbara lived here with their 5 children. After Barbara’s death in 1921, their daughter Emma Robinson owned the home until she could no longer maintain it alone. She sold the house in 1955 and it was rented as apartments without major alteration.

    Seems like a lot of doorways openings were created in this marvelous house. Were they really necessary?

      JimH said it has been apartments in the past; I’m sure that’s why.

    1887 Queen Anne

    The really did good on the exterior colors. Not a popular choice by today’s standards but earthy tones very close to the picks of the later part of the 19th century. I have a color plate somewhere with a house in these exact same colors from the 1880s.
    Inside is amazing. They even picked out historically accurate colors for some of the rooms too. The record scratches at the stark white ceilings though. I’ve ready many books of the period that recommend color and stenciling or paper for the ceilings. “White ceilings are in terrible contrast to our stylishly dark walls and should be discouraged and are disagreeable to everyone.” clarence Cook stated in his book “our homes and their arms ornaments”. “Walls and ceiling‘s are no longer left in monotonous white where. even the presence of a soil spot afford to leave for the eye, but are now beautiful and many ingenious ways to relieve the dreary expanse.”

    I am from this area though no longer live there, but I know this house, too! If I’m visiting family and heading out to Darien Lake we pass it. Beautiful to see the interior. Would definitely be an old house dream if I moved back there.
