    Pretty amazing curb appeal! The OCD part of me would want to replace the spindle frieze on the curved part of the front porch but if that’s the only thing missing after all this time, that’s pretty good!

    The second I saw this, I recognized it like an old friend I hadn’t seen in a while. New colors; the beautiful interior has been spiffed up. I also think since the last time it was on the market, Lynchburg’s housing prices have gone up in some places with this great historic area being one of the beneficiaries. I’ve always tried to avoid discussing house values and won’t make an exception here as I always figure that market forces will determine the final selling price, as it always does. I can’t help diverting my attention to the extraordinary stone/masonry house across the street. It could very well have been extensively altered over the years but I imagine the original interior was exquisite. Probably designed by a top tier architect as well. Of course, one could hardly call the subject house a lowly Barber designed house. George Barber designed homes are often the most high end of historic homes especially in smaller towns. In many places, this would be the centerpiece of a historic neighborhood but here this fine home has to compete with equally fine mansion level homes. I’m a bit puzzled about the archway over the staircase with descending steps under it. Is it just an ornamental millwork feature or part of separate staircase function? If nothing else, this house shows the lavish fretwork and millwork details that Barber designed house are famous for.

    Most beautiful stairway. Anyone remember the price in 2016? This house is a shining star! The one across the street is awesome as well.

    An absolute beauty!! Oh my, that stairway was made to impress whoever entered this house!

    About the staircase on the 2nd floor, where an arch is above stairs (i guess) going down again (i guess too). Is it the service stairs meeting the public one?

      Service Stairs is my guess. My house had a similar arrangement because of the layout of the house met closer to the main staircase. Since it was visible to public eye, it was made more ornamental because it couldn’t be closed with a door. The top portion may have had grill work. I wonder if this one did and its missing. It looks odd having the blank center. Maybe ball and stick or small balustrade?
