    Whoa! I know a certain house blogger in PA who’d go nuts for this one. Lots of great features here!

      Gorgeous! I would put in a more-period appropriate kitchen & tweak the bathrooms a bit, but it is truly an amazing property!

        1885 Italianate.

        Over-the-top class!
        Everything. I love especially the lighting, and the cool last two pictures.

    Nice house. The bedroom seem a bit small (servants wing maybe)? The “blue room’ is well blue, I’d have to change that and this is a perfect room for a nice more restrained papers so you notice the elements, like the mantel and Pier mirror/cornice. Nice house.

    • AvatarJeff says: 41 comments

      Paul you know, it is amazing how many people paint rooms blue, in rooms with natural trim! Blue and brown RARELY, except for certain shades, work well together. Which is interesting on the color wheel, as darker blues (like navy, or royal), and khaki/tan families are classic color combinations and are amazing complimentary colors. Blue rooms leave me feeling a bit “cold”. Except for bathrooms, a light, ethereal blue is quite nice, with white subway tile.

    1849? Seems like it would be a little later than that based on the style and details. I didn’t realize that style and detailing might go back quite that far. I would have guessed more post civil war at least, maybe even 1860’s or 70’s. I’m guessing this must be a pretty early example of the style with a pretty developed pallet.

    Great exterior, nice streetscape (I want that terrific adjacent building to the right as well), a beautiful entrance inside and out, great stair hall, and some fine details through, including the galleried rear wing. For a house of almost 5300sq.ft., the rooms do not seem very generous in size, though maybe the ever changing color and wallpaper schemes and B&B furniture compound that impression. The photpgraphy of the interior is a bit of a let down, whether from too tight a perspective, or odd choices in shots, or some other factor I can’t say, but it gives the impression of a lot of pokey, small rooms – I hope more as an unintended effect of the photos and less a true reflection of the house. Even so, starting anew with paint and wallpaper and furnishings, it has some nice features that could be shown to good advantage, including the early 20thC leaded glass windows.

    An article about Dr. Henry L. Smyser (1825-1900), who bought the house after returning from Russia in 1860 and “fixed it up”:

    I wish we could still post to our Favorites List. This is surely one of mine.

    Gorgeous house. But I wonder who would want 9 bedrooms? Seems like a good candidate for a B&B.

    • AvatarGail Lindeman Noernberg says: 89 comments

      i could use it…I have 4 kids and 18 grandkids…we could all live together………wait whats wrong with me…ok I can fill it with dogs….lol…what a beautiful property and I agree about the blue…I love blue but not in that room

    Love those brick city homes – such great style. would be fun to bump it up a bit. the bones are great – love those windows. by the time you have an office, goest room, tv room I could use those bedrooms up pretty quick.

  12. Avatarbecky martin says: 80 comments

    I thought the same thing but there aren’t enough bathrooms! Pretty windows too!

  13. AvatarGlenda Barcklow says: 4 comments

    Rooms don’t seem small at all. Like the mural and the kitchen. Hope this home finds living owners.

    I would be willing to bet that the full-depth parlor was originally two parlors separated by pocket doors…reminds me of the house from “The Heiress”, starring Olivia de Havilland.

    Nice to see an update on this one. I’ve had my eye on this one for years. Wish I could convince my wife to relocate, but that doesn’t seem to be in the cards, right now, yet anyway.

    I’d love this house with all 9 bedrooms. With 2 kids, we could find uses for all the rooms I’m sure. Spare bedroom or 2, couple home office and work rooms, workout room, extra play rooms and I’m sure they’d all find some good use.

    I just watched “Gaslight” with Ingrid Bergman. This could have been the set for it. Love this style…

    I like everything about this home. If I could live here I would have to install an elevator. All the colors are fabulous and the mural on the back of the home is very eye catching.
