    I surmise that the Moorish window on the corner had stained glass. At least in the top part.

    The Hackley Mansion has this one in Michigan. These two homes, Hackley and Hume Mansions, are restored to their original color schemes and all the art glass was restored.

    Some nice trim in the interior and some great stain glass windows, although the last one appears to be placed over a double hung window. Seems to be a lot of carpet that may be hiding some great hardwood floors if the floor in the entry and dining room are any indication

      yeah that last window is clearly put over the a double hung. I wonder why they photographed that. Its not affixed. I would think the owner would take it with them. Unless they plan to sell them with the house.

    Okay, was it just the way that I looked at it, or are there three full size windows there by the kitchen sink and two of them are “blocked” by the kitchen cupboards? Otherwise I do like this house.

    Lovely! Looks like the kitchen probably had a dropped ceiling installed contemporary with the fittings. I like the way someone took it out and installed the clerestory. Now the next owner just needs to take out the 70’s window and valance, and install a nice tall unit to the ceiling.

    That DR built-in is buttah! https://www.oldhousedreams.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/42-606WalkerStohd.jpg

    The fixture in the blue parlor is heavy and luxe. https://www.oldhousedreams.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/58-606WalkerStohd.jpg

    Nice.

    Nice house. The neighborhood looks great and well kept. There is a small motel 2 doors down. I was happy to see that main st. is very well kept, store fronts filed and the entire street is brick. If I owned this house, I would install a leaded glass in the keyhole window. like MJG commented, I am sure there was one when the home was built.

      My husband’s mother and sister both live in Woodbine – a extremely neat and clean community, nice and safe and neighbors help each other! Woodbine is built on a hill, so even with all the flooding going on in Nebraska and Iowa the town of Woodbine remained high and dry (couldn’t get in or out, but no flooding in town at all).

    “‘Scuse me while I kiss the sky”! Was that enough punctuation for you? The Owners respected the original design of the house while letting themselves fly free with the art and fanciful touches of their own. Dig the sink in the white bath. Cool touch. And the free floating kitchen Cabinets. A Precious joke to me. I long to delve into their book collection and roll down their purple carpet. And yet I mention the cool comfort of a calm bleu boudoir. Dare I diagnose a delicious blend of personality? If so, it would be my pleasure to run into them at any convenient art gallery!

    I’m getting a strong George F. Barber design feel from this one, The signature Keyhole window in the corner is documented in at least one confirmed Barber design: https://www.flickr.com/photos/11236515@N05/15477934481/in/album-72157648056465639/ I agree with Kathryn that the artistic touches are nice. (especially on the garage door) George Barber himself frequently lauded “Artistic” homes. Another Barber hallmark is represented in the numerous stained glass windows. I see no interior fretwork but its possible there were fretwork pieces originally. Color advice given to homeowners in the late Victorian era was to choose colors sympathetic to the stained glass colors. Besides, such bright colors liven up things on a cold snowy Iowa winter. Nice house, overall.
