    Despite the auction showing biding ends in a day if the reserve isn’t met the date will start (usually it does with Hubzu auctions.) So check the Hubzu link up top for the most accurate info because I may not update the auction dates if it does restart. If you look at the MLS pages the prices shown on listing sites is not the actual price. Hubzu says bidding starts at $269,000.

    I love this style Victorian home. It doesn’t exist in New England. Screams of west coast Victorian.
    When I go out west, I’m always excited to see this adaptation of Eastlake style homes.
    Funny side note, read an news article from 1880s I think, where Charles Eastlake was horrified by the architecture in California that had his name attributed to its style when he visited.

      ***Correction. Charles Eastlake was horrified his name was being linked to this architecture and published an article in a San Francisco Newspaper.
      In the end, the point is that he was not a fan of his attached to styles he thought had nothing to do with his movement 🙂

    Oh, it’s my contribution to last week’s link exchange! I just adore this house – the windows and high ceilings really give it an airy feeling. And some of those light fixtures are so beautiful. I do hope an OHDer snatches this one up.

    I am the new owner of this house! I thought that I would add some interesting details for any that are interested. This is the Libbey House built in 1882. The house originally had to indoor plumbing and there was an outhouse out back next to the carriage house. The carriage house still stands and consists of 2 rooms – one for the carriage and a second for the horse.
    I am planning on submitting the house to the National Register. Eureka is a treasure trove of historic homes but few are actually registered.
    I am restoring the home to how it would have been when built. It needs an outside painting very badly. The interior elements will be authentic. Many of the original light fixtures still exist – where they are deficient, I have found authentic fixtures for replacement. The original fixtures were gas and refitted to be electric.
    The ceiling in the kitchen was dropped for some unknown reason. Houses in this area had kitchen ceilings the same height as other rooms in the house. This was an error made by a previous owner I think. I climbing into the crawl space above the kitchen ceiling to find an additional 5 feet of space with boarded up original windows! Such a shame but I’ll fix that.
    She needs a lot of work but it’s a passion project. The house is light and airy with great mojo!

    PS – the flat portion of the roof should have a cupola. There are stairs in the attic that lead up to where it should be but it is boarded up. This will be restored as well. Eureka was a port city and these houses frequently had some way to view the water. I hope to get this done before the next 4th of July!

      It’s rare for this house style to have had a cupola but they did have “decks” at the top, as in a place to see the view rather than BBQ kind of deck.
