    The National Register says this was “Built before 1905…a Georgian door surround with a broken pediment, and a balustraded balcony were added after 1931.”

    Ok only two questions, why all the grey and what’s with the fireplace in the bathroom?

    Originally built by Lewis Fripp as a single story cottage in 1889, this house has been expanded and remodeled several times. Historical references show the second floor was added in 1912, and the portico around 1962 by Dr. John Hiott, during a conversion from apartments to a single family residence, giving the house its distinct Classical Revival look.

      Thanks, that explains the overall remodeled feel of the interior. Considering all the changes they’ve done a remarkable job of creating the look of a classic southern mansion. I suppose a Gone with the Wind inspiration is preferable to the earlier Lost Cause idealogy but the urge to add giant columns remained.

      I don’t want to be critical but that bathtub would have to be all white for me. There is nothing else as comfortable for visiting (to me) as being able to relax on a Southern front porch with friends.
