    This home is absolutely amazing. It has been beautifully restored and upkept. I just wish it was closer to an area that I want to be. If this homes bones are as good as it’s appearance it is a bargain for a beautiful Victorian home. Just lovely with great curb appeal.

    The date must be 1896 because the house first appears on the Sanborn insurance map in 1897. Attractive house in a pretty area with lots of recreation. Two hours to NYC.

    MY first thought is they transposed some numbers, This house is a perfect example of the later Victorian Era and in terms of trim and staircase, the leaded windows this house has a lot of hallmarks of the Edwardian era.

    These houses are relative bargains but you have to figure taxes and heating as part of ownership.

    As others have noted, this is a later Victorian period home with a mix of Queen Anne and Colonial Revival details as was common between 1895-1900. The owners/sellers obviously liked stained glass windows and added them in some places while others appear to be original. So long as the window design style is authentic to the period of the house if they were sold with the house I’d keep them. The last photo shows some beautiful Bird’s-eye Maple which was very popular for high end millwork (mainly as a veneer) from around 1890 to about 1910. The house seems priced appropriately for the features offered.

    I am nearly certain that this is a George Barber design, but I can’t seem to put my hands on the published design that matches it. I have spoken with the homeowners and they confirmed the 1896 YOC, but unfortunately, they don’t seem to have any original artifacts of the design. I will, of course, continue to research this one. Someone is going to get a real gem when they buy this on.

    OK, I like and love this house! This is the stuff of old house dreams, seeing it in almost original state and beautifully taken care of.

    I am wondering at the size of the lot. There is another property to the left and behind that has a house on it that may have been the carriage house to this one. The listing says the lot for this one is .07 acres, which is only 3049.2 square feet. It must have a really small yard. That size house must surely have at least forty feet of frontage, which makes the lot little over seventy five feet deep. With a fifty foot front line it would only be about sixty feet deep. I know that big new houses on small lots are popular today, but I didn’t think that was the case in the 1890’s.

      If the house in the rear and to the left is the carriage house, and it may well have been, that would make it a bit larger and deeper lot. The aerial view shows this house literally has no yard. What would be it’s rear yard is a garage to another property. It looks as if most of the property has been parcelled off over time.

    Spectacular home in a beautiful community. Honesdale is a lovely town and home to Highlights for Children, as well as being county seat for Wayne County.

    What a beautiful house – and I bet the area is gorgeous! $3800 in taxes, which seems reasonable after our NY taxes… if this house waits for me for two years (till daughter graduates high school), I call dibs!
