    I feel like a broken comment record lately about build dates. It’s possible this started out as an Italianate and received a makeover pre-1910-ish.

      That is a very good synopsis! The pre-1910-ish part does overwhelm the 1871-ish part. It’s a fascinating house, nonetheless. That marble bathroom sink is beautiful.

      The roof does look a bit odd with those wide eaves. Guessing they may have held some Italianate paired brackets at one time.

      I think you definitely have that correct. The symmetrical shape and tall paired bottom windows on the outside look like they’re more fitting on an Italianate, but most of the house looks totally different now.

      I’m guessing it was a Mansard, Second Empire with 4 story tower up front and center. Certainly is a very different house now; very fancy, but stylistically chaotic.

    I am in my mid 50’s and I have never lived in a home with a stairway (2nd Floor). That staircase is amazing! Dreamy….

    Wow, a walk through the neighborhood is as interesting as the house is!

    Wow that the parlor sure is purplish? its such an odd color but somehow it makes the room. this is such a beautiful home! Love the staircase!

    wow, i love the ‘gone with the wind’ staircase

    Absolutely stunning right down to the vintage style mouse trap!

    Wow! Stunning home! Such beautiful rooms. I love the ceiling in the dining room too! The bathrooms aren’t great. You can always tell when a homeowner takes the pictures. I would remove the mousetrap, trash can, cleaning products, and box of stuff from the rooms before taking the pics. And turn on the lights!

    I would love to see what the original windows on the stair landing looked like.

    Am I the only one that saw a bird on the top dormer roof line? The choice of how they used paint colors makes it look like an owl in flight. I wonder if it was on purpose? Glad it’s been returned to single family – with that stairway, it could be lovely again.

    Beautiful home! Love the sink and gorgeous dining room! Great price for such a nice home with a great staircase!

    Franklin is a gem. Small town with a lovely main street It is an old oil money area. There is an amazing pocket of mansions in the area. The apple festival in the fall is amazing! Not to far from both Erie and Pittsburgh.

    I stayed in Franklin, PA about 10 years ago. It’s a charming little town with a lovely main street, and very low home prices. This beauty is no exception. I’ve often thought it would be a nice place to retire (except for the cold winters!).

    To me this house seems so homey and solid. I guess I’m not a purist because, I could be happy living here with a few changes over time.

  16. The previous comment of “stylistically chaotic” is right on how I feel with this house. Lots of nice little gems (that bathroom sink!), but I kinda feel un-grounded while going through the pictures. Does that make sense?

    The staircase is incredible.

    Outside, I would love to rehab the stairs down to the road, and the sidewalk. (I say this as my own century old sidewalk is being taken over by grass)

    Walking in, and first hit by that staircase… wow! ?? Cool corner marble sink, too.

    I love this one. I was looking at it last year, and again when it came back on the market. Would love to see more pictures. The front entrance, the staircase, the coffered ceiling and paneling in the dining room, beautiful.
