    Agreed!! The woodwork in this house is my favorite type. It’s not overly feminine, and not overly masculine, and its got the patina of a beautiful old violin. The spindles are impossibly delicate and beautifully spaced. The doors have such a nice paneling design with the base – middle – and elongated upper sections — just beautifully proportioned. And a point of curiosity is that the attic looks to have had lath and plaster that was removed in places because you can see the marks left behind on the structural members. Mostly diamond here!!

    This house was built in 1896 for young attorney Thomas Burns (1870-1936) and his wife Mary Laura Smith, who had married without her parents blessing the year before. Burns grew up at 732 Gotham in the home of his father John Burns, a mason and builder born in Ireland. Thomas bought the lot from his father’s property for $800 in April 1896, and he and Mary raised their daughter and 8 sons in this home. Thomas had a successful career as a corporate lawyer and later acquired a large farm with an old mansion known as Greystone in the countryside nearby.
