    I titled this as Second Empire but it’s got a touch of Gothic Revival in the dormer windows.

    I love the open staircase to the attic with the skylight above. I would stand under that and look up every day if I lived here.

    Hearty applause for a house that still retains its wrought iron roof thingies? not sure what they’re called, but they line the crest of the roof line and were usually torn off during remodeling/re-roofing exercises.

      They call it “Roof Cresting” in most of my catalogs. Had to buy some a few years ago, and boy is it pricey stuff!

    This is the mansion of Judge John G. Wilkin (1818-1889), a prominent attorney, banker and community leader in Middletown. Wilkin’s family settled in the area after arriving from Ireland in the 1720’s. Relatives served as officers in the military before and after the Revolution, and Wilkin led the local effort to recruit and equip soldiers for the Civil War.
    Judge Wilkin and his wife Louise Cooley raised two sons here, John, who followed his father in law and at the bank, and Dr. Charles, a surgeon in New York City.

    It’s a fabulous house I suspect was built in the 1860’s and refined into the 1880’s. Middletown isn’t an affluent town, but there are a lot of interesting old houses – this one Kelly posted is across the street.

    Love all the existing roof ornament. Love the green and pink bath. Siding is newer and would be nice to see without.

    I found it hard to get an overall exterior image in my mind based on the pictures so I went to the street view–and I see why! Well hidden behind lots of foliage.
