    I bet you many won’t click to see this one based on the exterior. The interior was a shock, the old photo shows how amazing the exterior was before the fire.

    Once upon a time . . . .

    This article pays lofty tribute to the home and its history:

    I’d like to see more photos.

    I wish I hadn’t seen the before picture. The interior is still lovely and wonderful but what a let down going from before to after.

    What a strange article. If its “neighborhood lore” that a fire destroyed a portion of the home, why wouldn’t the journalist take the time to research the paper’s morgue for confirmation? As it is, I’d love to see what’s under that 12″ siding.

    I was really surprised by the interior, it’s still really beautiful…

    That is incredible.

    Imagine what the rest of the house looked like!
    Curses on anyone who removes that fence.

    I wonder how much it would cost to rebuild the second floor and tower?

    Wow, that was a shock to come into this and see this interior. I would have never thought an Italianate Victorian lived under this craftsman wrapper. I have a weakness for doors with two types of wood. I love the burled walnut panels. I have a lot of furniture with this look.

    I couldn’t imagine the cost to rebuild the exterior. Yikes.

    But, like someone said the original fence appears! I’ll be disappointed if someone gets rid of that!

    It would take someone very special to rebuild the outside. Doesn’t look like the same house at all. I think it might be interesting to have the surprise inside something you’d never expect. Some trash bags and a little time would greatly improve the interior so you could see what you were really working with. It has some lovely ceilings, fireplaces, and doors!
