    Gorgeous art glass!

    The fitted cabinets in the larder are CHOICE. Looks like someone preferred a few drawers be added at some point. Better matching the drawer fronts’ patina would be nice.

    wrong for my taste

    I’m sort of swooning over this…..with the exception of the carpet. I wonder if there are plain floors under it, or if there is a design in them.

    A couple of other things….why no kitchen windows, and what is the room on the back with the tin ceilings and fireplace? The fireplace looks like it’s a fake one.

    I just have to say one thing. Nothing about the home it is another cutie, but didn’t old Henry visit a few homes in his life? I just bet he did. I can’t see that as a selling point, certainly not a buying point IMO.

    Love the staircase but it seems like a lot of the “original” has been changed. But still, a wonderful home!
