    Where to start? Beautiful, authentic light fixtures, unfinished woodwork, beautiful fireplaces/mantles, and a cute little cabin to store the kids!

    This house shows how traditional, non-Victorian furniture can work well in a Queen Anne.

    So much natural light! I love it! I wonder what is under the carpet in the bedrooms, though. More hardwood?

      I so agree Carebear. All of those generously scaled windows just bathe the place in light. There seems to be nary a dark corner. Many similar houses are much darker.

    Disappointed there were no kitchen pictures but I can’t imagine it wouldn’t be as fantastic as the rest of this house! Wow…..

    What a beauty. Great exterior color, it really complements the house. The front doors are beautiful as is the hardware. Photo #17, love the tall mirror flanked by the windows. No kitchen pics though….

    Gorgeous details! The woodwork is stunning. What a delightful place to call home.

    The blending of elements from several different Victorian styles combined with the proven white on blue exterior color scheme makes for some great curb appeal. There are Gothic arches and Italianate window bays and is that a partial Mansard or a trick of the camera?

    Not usually my era of preference, but I could definitely manage this beauty. I love the large windows, unusually detailed millwork, nooks and crannies, etc., yet it doesn’t exhibit the, “fussiness,” of many large homes of this period. And I can just imagine what the original kitchen looked like, if it’s not still there. Lovely house and the very cute cottage is a plus.

    That exterior shot could be a Christmas card, some interesting interior decorating concepts

    Oh – my – – gosh. Wow. Definitely the most spectacular house I’ve seen yet this year; and probably all of last year too. This is my favorite style of house; and man, they don’t get much better than this. If you’re like me and favor the metal, later decorative period, gasoliers, these examples of outrageously stunning, original, crystal, converted gasoliers are not really ideal; but holy ghost, they are most fortunate set there is NO denying. Woof. And that’s just the glorious icing. The woodwork is priceless. The updates are sensitive-ish and perfectly serviceable. The exterior color scheme is E X Q U I S I T E, just glowing there in the most divine blue/gray hue, and highlit like a vision of heaven is glacier crisp white: all the more stunning in winterscape with remarkable light. Aaaaaahhhhhh The original, delicate, Gothic wainscoting in the DR make that room my faaaaavorite. Imagine the suite of likewise furniture which was probably in there originally. Mannn. If this is a share; the contributor who posted it is my hero.

    It’s a breath taker for sure. It reminds me of the opening scenes in Lady and the Tramp!

    Wasn’t this house featured this past Christmas in a Hallmark channel movie??

    Beautiful! And being an equine enthusiast, I love those front door glass inserts!

    Beautiful! Like a museum!

    I actually really said loud in my head “oh jeez, i’m dying, she’s so beautiful! And the snow!”. Then i got disappointed at the first interior photos and realized this was the outbuilding, which created a great cliffhanger for the incredibly beautiful interior of this house. So perfect, what a dream!! I think this might be my all time favorite!
