The 9/23/1875 Fayette County Herald said it best: ''a large 2-story frame building, handsome in design, conveniently arranged, & elegantly finished throughout. A large bay window extends to the roof at one side of the front, and a veranda runs from it across to the other side, making a very pretty front. Heavy ornamental double doors open from the veranda into a wide hall, from which a stairway of elegant pattern leads to the second floor. . . Each room is supplied with grates & handsome & expensive mantles, fitted for gas. The woodwork & doors are all of black and white walnut and oak, showing the natural grain of the wood, the moulding and ornamental work is all heavy and of tasty pattern . . . one of the prettiest and finest residences in Washington.'' All of this is still true today, and so much more! 10 foot doors, 12 foot ceilings.Dream kitchen! Sep. heat and A/C up and down. More pics to come.

    Realtor says more pics coming. I love these late italianate houses, especially when the beautiful hardwood trim remains unpainted. Good exterior color choices as well. And seems to be surrounded by other pretty homes. Love this one.

    I love these late italianates as well. If you look closely, you can see that the stair banisters are stained alternating dark and light colors. I’ve never seen that before. I love the front doors.

      I’ve seen alternating shades of bead board in wainscot and alternating types of wood in flooring (both in houses from the 1860’s through 1880’s) but never alternating types of wood in a balustrade before – fun! The oak finial — and the disk-like base it sits on — which rest upon the walnut cap of the newel post appear to be late 20th- or early 21st-century additions. Such a newel is more likely to have had a “button” on the cap (or perhaps a gas light fixture on a standard) rather than a finial.

        Good catch. Now that called my attention to this, it’s pretty obvious! The stain they chose for this modification was a bit too light. wonder why they chose oak?

    Love the front doors. It sets the tone right from the start. I noticed it looks as if the spindles on the interior railing are alternating different woods or possibly different finish on every other spindle. Am I seeing that right?

    The layers of cornice and trim on that doorway are just gorgeous!

    Once again, one of my favorite styles, what a great shot of the staircase, looking up. Amazing detail on the staircase, but wonder about the finial being a different color wood. Love the chandelier in pic #10, simply beautiful. How about the vintage Sheriffs car, what a great touch. It is easy to see that this owner truly possesses a love and appreciation of original features and history. Love that last pic in the snow with the church steeple in the background. Oh my gosh, can just envision this home with Christmas lights during the holiday season, how amazingly beautiful it must be. I look forward to viewing additional pictures of this beautiful home.

    Just curious, what and where does the tall narrow door in the red room lead to. Guess that door is for the thin man? (chuckle!)
