    What a lovely house! While I can appreciate the detail and craftsmanship of the Victorian era, this house is a bit more my style. I love the horizontal aspect of the house. From the first photo with the green shingle siding and the eyebrow windows (the rear elevation is a cyclops), the arched french doors and finally the second story porch, this house just makes me smile.

    The only thing I would change in this house is the teeny tiny mirror in the one bathroom! LOL Otherwise, it is perfection! It’s been updated in all the right places and ways, and those bathrooms…beautiful, the floor are wonderful, and those arches? stunning!

    It’s beautiful—just a question—is that a screened in back porch with snow seeping in under the outer wall?

      I a not an engineer or architect, but I am guessing that water needs a run off point so it doesn’t accumulate and/or drip directly below and cause water damage. I am guessing.

      It looks like an open porch to me.

    This is different! Love the kitchen cabinets. Does anyone know, would the woodwork originally have been unpainted?

    Even blanketed by snow, this house is enough to make me want to move to Syracuse. What a beauty!

    this one is another surprise. the outside is going from Shingle-style to Prairie. but i expected Mission on the inside and got Colonial Revival. but it works. a very unique house. unexpected.

      The house was built in an era when a lot of these influences were current and often co-mingled on the same structure (Craftsman, Prairie, Colonial Revival, waning Shingle Style), but I would say this house is most directly influenced by the English Arts & Crafts. That rear elevation is VERY Edwin Lutyens, and the classical elements might bear relation to the Colonial Revival trends that were then current, but are really more of an influence of the Georgian Revival that was popular in English country houses of the time, again particularly as Edwin Lutyens et al were increasingly using.

    Preservation Matters, Since this home is dated to be 1909, it falls in the era when the victorian shingle style came into play (1880-1900). Researching through my resources here at my office of old photos the woodwork was unpainted because higher prices wood was used. The practice of painting obviously was to brighten these darker and sometimes brooding interiors. Hope this helps

      I love the house overall, though some of the updates are not my taste. (Maybe one day I’ll get over my dislike of granite and vessel sinks!) Looking at the photos, I did wonder if all that woodwork was originally unpainted.

        I’m with you Better. I just don’t like vessel sinks. That’s the only thing about this house that I wasn’t crazy about. An easy fix though!

        Bethster, I’m completely with you on that ‘vessel on the granite’ look in that bathroom. I have never liked that fad either. Even though lots of folks like the kitchen. . . ummm, it’s not my cup of Lipton. I think the original sink might be sitting next to the laundry pair? There are some extraordinarily beautiful aspects of the house; I’m sure when it was originally built, it was spectacular!

          It’s funny, jekl (if I may call you that!), when vessel sinks first started appearing, I saw some I really liked! But they sure did wear out their welcome. I wonder if I’ll get old enough to be nostalgic over them….

    Just gorgeous! I am one of the few who like painted woodwork ((I know, I know… 🤭)) I’m with Bethster on the granite and vessel sinks, though!

    It looks as if this house has been staged or just a few things left after the move. With all the books shelves and beauty, I’m betting this is stunning when totally furnished and accessorized. IF I was buying this home, I would be happy with the updated kitchen and bath. Both are pretty, functional and already done. If I hated those things and painted woodwork, I simply wouldn’t buy this house. Lovely neighborhood.

      If it was professionally staged, they did a nice, subtle job. I was assuming it was the second guess. Unless they’re doing what I did when I sold my place: got rid of a lot of stuff, then moved half of what was left into storage! It was hard to live there and keep it neat and clean all the time, but I enjoyed experiencing the tidy lack of clutter. (Too bad I haven’t kept it up in my new home!)

    Wow! georgeous!That’s a lotta house for $389. I couldn’t even buy a studio for that price here in Boston. Makes me wonder if retiring back in the ole ‘Cuse wouldn’t be such a bad idea

    When I left central NY I vowed that I would never move back! But this house made me re think my decision, for a nano second.

    Was away for a long weekend, so am backlogged here & late to the party, but…
    Thanks for giving this one its own post, Kelly! I loved it as soon as I saw its listing! Am glad lots of others liked it a lot, too. (I, too, am not a fan of vessel sinks, although I thought they were kind of cool when they first came out. On the other hand, I often do like granite and quartz – just depends on the patterns & colors.)

    When I saw the first photo, I wasn’t too keen on the house. Once I looked at the others, I fell in love! I then went back to the first picture and it felt more like home! I agree about the vessel sinks, but that isn’t a difficult fix. The kitchen is tasteful and I could accept the painted woodwork. It does brighten the spaces and make it inviting.
