    This house is stunning inside and out but the outside is my favorite.

      Looks like it originally had a reception room and a second floor sitting room (top of the stairs). I am wondering if all the woodwork was originally stained and shellaced? Very nice house in need of just a little restoration.

        The dining room would give you an idea of the color of the original woodwork staining throughout the house. The woodwork and doors in a house of this age wouldn’t have had painted trim work. Judging on the choice of colors, the current owner or the previous owner painted the woodwork. The house would look so much more grand without all the painted trim

          They’ve been painting over woodwork (as in that wasn’t originally painted) for decades so may go back older than that.

    I’d love to see an interior photo of the fine Palladian window over the porch.

    That Dining Room is absolutely gorgeous! I really love the curved doorways, too! I’ve never seen a window quite like that recessed one, but it is really cool. As usual, I really love the tiled deco bath! This house is just perfection.

    Some of them colors need to be toned down. Love the opening of the staircase

    Wow! Love New Bedford Mass & this house is perfection! This is one of my favorite historical cities on the Mass coast. It’s rich in New England history with its whaling museum.
    This house is quintessential for the area

    Beautiful modern house in an old house shell. What’s not to love, except the green bedroom which obviously belongs to a youngster. I like my houses a little more wretched than this. My husband asked me what hobby I would want to do when I retire. I told him “the same thing I’ve done all my life. Turn the undesirable houses into the beautiful ones. He just sighed. His hobby is old radios. I guess he didn’t understand that I wouldn’t be looking for his help, although that’s exactly how we met. Anyway, this really is a beautiful house for someone that isn’t looking for a hobby. 🙂

    I’m fairly certain this is Classical Revival (aka Neoclassical or Neoclassical Revival), not Colonial Revival. Nevertheless, it’s a beautiful example of such.

    One of my favorites. Some wonderful unique features like the exterior front and the entry to the stairway. The taxes are a killer. Perfect house though.
