    love it- I am a sucker for a wrap around porch. Nice to see a lot of the woodwork is still there even though a lot is painted. Always love seeing working transomes. What is going on in that attic?

    D’oh! Not side by side front doors: but what a “unique” and exciting, (yet relatively simple), formal entry design anyway! Spectacular! Monumental really for what it is; and likely flooding the hall with great light. What exciting trim around it; enhanced as it is in it’s scale, (if not also complexity), for emphasis. Superb. The transom lights look like they have stick-on “stained glass” on BTW in case someone wonders.

    The facade and side elevations of this house are, dare I say, magnificent. The scale, symmetry, and design certainly contribute to that; as does the state of preservation, and condition. It’s glorious, radiant, overall countenance looks very fine in crisp white. Please remove mature plantings in front of it so it’s design will really pop. 🙂

    Excellent house. Exxxxxcellent. She’s a bit of a drab bunny inside IMO – [just one man’s opinion there – of course]; but would positively sing in the right hands, (mine 😉 ). Looks like a street I could be very living on too.

    Good thing a new deck has been built, (seemingly wisely), over the ceilings above, since someone is storing, (even light), things on them up there. The hall ceiling must have been kept lower to accommodate the practical use of that upper space. The discretely sized skylights are great! The contemporary flight of stairs leading from the back porch need a good, more period, and creative re-thinking; but I like them back there and open like that.

    Love the idea of the combined double parlor. Adding a floor to ceiling, columnar, dividing unit would be RAD; and not even so very difficult or expensive since the simple square, not overly ornate style which would be appropriate could be built from pine and most appropriately painted white. A sort of Neo-classical version of Craftsman cabinet detail at the bottom might also be great for creating two distinct yet joined spaces: though the play on a earlier, grand, Neo-classical fixture might be really fun – and impressive – in there. I’ll wager a fine piano would superlatively fit in there as well, sounding great acoustically.

    This house could be GREAT with very little effort. I’d probably add just a bit of exterior trim detail as well to make it really sing. Some may have been removed at some point anyway when re-siding, etc. Those columns are currently just a bit plain up close to really fit.

    Hope Jim is interested in this one. I’d enjoy knowing about the original owner / builder. Mason?

    Niiiiiice. 🙂

    Have a look at this lovely neighbor, with it’s questionable medallion, on the same street:

    Wow, what a beauty. Love that big living/dining room. A little cosmetic work in some rooms, but I love it.

    Just FYI – per the ADA, a roll-in shower can’t have a sill or edge > 1/2 inch. Certainly not the case here.
