    I’ve never been a fan of painted woodwork. Ever since I bought my first house, I’ve always celebrated the natural beauty of lightly stained woodwork and furniture. That said, this one…yes. She’s a beauty. I realize that historically Greek Revivals were painted, but I’d be curious to find out what species was used in all of the finish work.

    Anyhow…just for smiles and giggles, take a look at the satellite image on the google map. That big brown spot in the aerial photos behind the red-barn garage used to be another barn.

    It’s a lovely house with its original woodwork in the front rooms, certainly handmade on site. The temple front is superb with almost perfect form. I can’t find any historical info except that it was owned by the Gifford family in the late 19th/early 20th C. I’d be surprised if it was built after 1850.
    On the eastern fringe of the Rochester suburbs, close to the Thruway and a racino.

    This house form must have been the template for Greek Revival houses in New York State in the first half of the 19th century. I’ve seen many, many, examples of the temple form house always with a side wing as seen here. The delicate staircase looks original with its unadorned doweled balusters and almost toothpick-like newel post. One would almost expect a robust Greek temple columned newel post and heavily turned Classical based balusters, but those would have to wait until the Italianate style homes that came later. Greek Revival homes that haven’t been extensively altered are becoming scarce but the eastern seaboard generally and New York state specifically, appear the be the region which still retains the greatest number of houses in the “National Style” at present. This house comes with a generous 21.2 acres so being able to have some animals as well as possibilities for some limited farming uses come to mind.
