    Delightfully quirky and asymmetrical! The playful window arrangements are really fun.

      Truly a delight; and almost in miniature it seems. One normally sees a highly creative, Shingle Style, (and here mixed with late Victorian Eclecticism), house like this on a grander, or much grander scale. Here the scale is delightfully cozy and intimate; and WARM it seems, with many almost over-scaled radiators throughout. Those two at the bottom of the stairwell mean business; surely keeping the whole space, from the ground floor to all the way up, nice and toasty. I get why someone made the upper, three season sun room on 2 into a four season space. What a wonderfully intimate, bright, and special space for two to read and enjoy a blustery Wisconsin winter day; or to soak up the sun. The little balcony is a super fun bonus; and such a thrill from the street. That little porch just needs the tiniest wee bit of design re-thinking. Just one fireplace; but what a great space to sit beside the fire. The fine, solid, ample stairway really ties it all together and gives the house a sense of grander size and roominess. The flat coffered ceilings in the bedrooms are a common feature in transitional homes of this period of all styles and scales. The almost delicate square coffered ceiling in the DR is NICE, really nice. Gorge. This house is EXTRA special; and I say bravo to the likely local or regional architect who pretty clearly designed it. He likely would rather have had a grander commission to really blow the place up in size and fancier bits; but I think the house on this tier and scale are even more remarkable, successful, and special. Wow. Fabulous.

    I’m not a bath person, but I would totally get a bath bomb and relax in that pretty bathroom! This is a really lovely, comfortable house. Love that gorgeous stairway, too.

    I posted this on the link exchange because I also liked it a lot. Usually not the style I like, but this home just looks “comfortable “ to me. I also love that staircase!
    Boscobel is a nice little town here in the Driftless area of Wi. BUT not so small that there is nothing going on. The Wisconsin River is beautiful and the Driftless area looks more like Appalachia than Wi. Good jobs in the industrial park or prison can be found too!

    This home has quite a lot of charm and possibilities. Good curb appeal too. Does anyone else think the sq footage (1940) might be off? It seems much larger to me—or perhaps an optical illusion.

    Truly IS a storybook home. Oh, my heart!

    The stairway, the woodwork, the quirky details – I love it all! Super cute home!

    I love everything about the house, except for the blue painted door. I would strip it down to the the trim color in the rest of the house….also the white painted trim around the blue door. I agree that the house is a bit quirky. I am more of a minimalist, so I would’t have as much “stuff” in the house.

    This is easily one of my favorites on this site. There’s something so warm and cozy about this place. The quilts, gas lamps, natural woods and creative custom made built-ins are some of the prettiest I’ve seen. Such a handsome home.

    What a charmer! When I move in (:-) ), I’ll keep the furniture size scaled down so I can appreciate the character of the rooms. Since I’m a country girl myself I really wouldn’t appreciate the “togetherness” of the homes because I don’t want to “reach out and touch someone”. But Boscobel is a nice homey area and maybe my neighbors would be friendly and borrow a cup of sugar; and we could have a fresh-baked piece of apple pie and coffee. Old world charm is definitely here.
