    I’m having trouble figuring this one out. 1886 would be too late for Greek Revival, a tad too early for Classical Revival. Is this an older home or was seriously remodeled after the 1886 date? I hope someone can turn up the history.

    Looking at the proportions and rooflines from the street view it looks like the front gallery is a later addition. The massing and chimney stacks almost look Italianate which would be long over by 1886. That said, it was the Centennial Exhibition of 1876 that spurred renewed interest in colonial era design. The interior does seem to have some Queen Anne elements that have been adapted to Colonial Revival. Definitely confusing.

      I didn’t even look at the side, you’re right. Interesting!

      1887 Queen Anne
      NORTH HAVEN, CT

      There are several houses on this street with big columns. Not sure what the house looked like before the front went up. Also a lot of Queen Anne’s. Nice neighborhood. Maybe it was a transitional style. The front definitely looks like it was an addition. You’re right. Maybe they wanted to update their Italianate house to keep up with the times and added this front part of the house. I’d love to see pictures of this house through its progression through the years.

          Same family, different house. The posted house was owned by Henry M. Wortham and his wife Nettie Dunlap Wortham (1859-1939). Her father Samuel Scott Dunlap (1830-1902) was a Civil War hero credited with saving Macon from Stoneman and Sherman’s rampage, who made a fortune in the hardware business. Nettie was an 1875 graduate of Wesleyan College nearby and Wortham Hall commemorates her large bequest to the College.
          The early history of the house is obscure, although the opulent lifestyle of the Worthams is local legend.

      Perhaps it means the home is broken into rental units, if you look at the street view you’ll see how far back the home goes.

        There’s also a carriage house/garage way at the back. Some could be there. House is definitely huge!

          Can you imagine having that LARGE open foyer and staircase? Talk about feeling like royalty. Cheap price too!

      The rental units are located on the back of the home with one located over the garage. The Wortham’s did add onto the home, after Nettie Dunlap Wortham’s father, CPT. Sam Dunlap gave them $10,000 for being the first of his children to produce him a grandchild.

    I love this one, that interior could be smoking hot. Pretty from the front as well. First order of business would be ripping the additions off the back and returning it to single family. A walk up and down that street reveals many other fabulous mansions.Crime map is a bit concerning. And all those cool light fixtures are definitely a plus. This would be a captivating project.

    I wonder if that’s a servants bell push button to the left of the pocket doors. Looks like a small electric bell button. Though I could be wrong. The picture is a little blurry.

    That’s a massive house! I noticed the even larger one next door, across the side street.

    It’s wonderful!
