    I know I say it all the time, but boy I love west coast architecture. It pops right out. This house is painted very nicely too. Clapboards different colors than the shingles. Quite a popular paint recommendation. Though it’s not always recommended in all books, it is articulated and shown in many.

    I love the woodwork around the doors and windows. So strong.

    I’m slightly disappointed in the newel post. It is possible its original and I’m not saying otherwise. I was hoping for one of those big and delicious west coast Eastlake Newels 🙂

    Not a show stopper. I’d buy this in a minute.

    Wow what a story on this house. I just read the history! So this home used in the 20’s had been converted to a two family and the original stair was ripped out and all the interior wood was painted. The bottom of the house was sided in that flat looking asbestos siding which removed many original ornamentation. The house was moved to a new location and they completely restored it. Removed the asbestos. Recreated the lost ornamentation. They had most of the original staircase in pieces that they put back together by utilizing the original filled nail holes and other ghost outlines. They stripped and re-stained or shellacked the woodwork. They even reused the foundation brick as a veneer over the new concrete one. The list goes on and on.
    Quite a lot of work was put into this place.

    I hope these owners received some sort of award for all that wonderful work.

    I just keep coming back to this house. I want to own it in a painful way.
