    Is that a milk glass chandelier? What a gorgeous house, and check the street view; right across the street from an antique store.

    1875 Italianate cottage
    Noblesville, IN

    So glad this one got posted! This elegant Italianate cottage has got to be the deal of the year at that price, with so much remaining original character, and in such seemingly VERY good condition. Look at that original river granite retaining wall – not so much as a crack. The wrought iron hand rails and newel posts too are great survivors. What a handsome aspect there on the significant rise above the street, (a big plus in a river town). Looks like someone went to A LOT of trouble stripping the, (likely always painted), A grade pine. Oops. Oh well, it will look nice and crisp when someone re-paints it. 🙂 Cracking great deal! LUCKY, lucky buyer. @$60K! Wow.

      Well, there is the brown marble one in the parlor. The other three mantles shown are original, but were likely always decorative and never contained an open grate fireplace. Why they did that is a mystery, but is very often seen in homes of this vintage. Maybe they still wanted the mantle to display tchotchkes. The chimneys, (which appear on the exterior to be in great shape), were used as flues to vent smoke from wood / coal burning stoves found in the principal rooms. If you peel back the wallpaper you will find round ports for stove pipe about half way to the ceiling. Sometimes you can see them, but someone did a great job here with the plastering before the paper went up. My house is of the same period, style, and scale as this one and shares nearly all of it’s stylistic features; though much of the decorative features were removed and lost many years ago and I’m having to replace and replicate them. Life would be much easier moving into this nearly turn key beauty. I really love this house.

    Clifford-Wyrick house- info says built by river boat captain, merchant and banker. Suspect some great materials went into building and sustaining this beauty.

    Thank you Rosewater for explaining about the fireplaces. I’ve seen this in a lot of houses and thought the fireplaces were closed in and the stoves added for efficiency!

      No prob. DreamOn. These original, purely decorative examples seen here tend to almost exclusively appear in Italianate houses from the end of the civil war until roughly 1880. They all tend to have a very similar design quality in that their scale is mostly smaller than a regular mantle, and they are always wooden with a very flat profile: which is to say they all pretty much look alike. Most others you will see were actually open grate fireplaces which were sealed off for a variety of reasons.

        Sometimes people close up fireplaces. Other time people had them like rosewater says as decorative mantel. Some fireplaces were gas. Other fireplaces only had a ventilation function. And I’ve even seen some fireplaces that only had a heat grate in them.

    Nice but always in town. Panty is great. Wallpaper ceilings are so hard to do, if well done. Nice homey house.

    Sweet house and the vintage of many of the early ones around here, similar vintage of those of Port Gamble settled by Maine transplants in the 1850s. I love the scale and coziness. The wallpaper in this one is super special…love it all.

    On the National Register, the house was built for merchant and banker Benjamin P. Clifford (1817-1880). After his death just a few years later, it was sold to his associate John A. Wirick (1843-1898), whose family lived here almost 50 years. Nicely preserved!

    Gosh, this little place is just lovely, I keep coming back to look at it and cannot understand why it is still on the market. At a price like this, it would be less than most people pay for rent – what’s going on here?

    I ask the same question Barbara……I’ve considered flying out to look at it even. Some of it needs a little work, but most is perfect as is. I also like all I’ve found out about Clarksville. I’m assuming the photos are current and accurate. It is a very sweet house.

    I absolutely LOVE the wallpaper! The woodwork and lighting is so neat. I could move today, if I weren’t already tied up in my own house. Whoever buys this one is a lucky duck.
