    Really nice old house. The antique sink in the fourth from last photo could lead me to want to violate the tenth commandment. You know the one about coveting thy neighbor’s goods.

      I agree Joe. I love that old sink. I also love the bold stained glass in that stairwell. Trying to make out that pattern in the lower sash. I wish the pictures were little clearer or closer on the items just for my own fun 🙂
      Another great feature of this house is that big heavy looking porch on the side of the house over the window on the second floor. Amazing. The house has been sided over many years ago. I’d love to remove that and see what type of original siding is under it. Maybe a variegated design.

      My eyes bugged out at the sink.

    I’m not 100%, emailed Chris to find out for sure if this is a Barber design. It’s got to be a catalog home, I’ve seen this design a few times before.

    Built for coal merchant and investor George E. Green (1858-1917), who was mayor 1894-1898. Later as a state senator, he was arrested for taking kickbacks but acquitted.

    The house looks a little better in red than the previous white, but I agree that restoring the original siding would be a big improvement. It’s surprising to see so much of the original house surviving all these years in a depressed part of the city.

    Really really fabulous. Seems pretty land-locked but if the neighborhood is good I wouldn’t care.

    When I saw the first pictures I thought of a size 10 foot stuffed into a size 8 shoe! Grand old home that could use a lot of TLC to restore it to its former lovliness.

    Did anyone else say, “WTH?!” when they saw the bathtub in the corner of the bedroom? I assume that’s not an original feature…

    OMG you’re right. I missed that!
    YIKES. So funny brigid i didn’t even see that.

    Sledge hammer please.

    The sink in the corner of one room, that may be original. I’ve seen some plans that have sinks in the bedrooms.
