    The half hidden door/window combo thing seems pretty awkward. Would that have been an original idea for porch access? Or maybe the porch is a later addition?
    Wish this one was photographed a bit better, lots of stuff that would be nice to see. Bathrooms perhaps, basement, attic, etc.

      It appears that the second floor porch is accessed from the door on the first stair landing . There is an obvious difference in the porch floor height and the landing height as a step and riser is visible. They added a single sash to the top of the door, with the second floor to attic landing intersecting at this point. This allows light to wash the landing and stair going on up. I would say clever original feature.

    Wow you folks are observant! I hadn’t noticed the odd porch entry before you commented on it. Could they have accessed an existing porch through a window before that, or do you think the entire arrangement, both door and porch, date from the same alteration?

    I believe that the suggestion that the porch is an alteration makes sense. Notice that the hand railing changes dramatically at the second floor – from an elegant regional Greek Revival design to a more common stocky turn-of-the-century design with a large square newel. I believe that the open staircase to the third floor was an alteration of the early 20th century. That date would match the style of the newel post. It could also be the same date for the porch access alteration.
