    That staircase is a work of art! The fretwork is amazing too.

    As I previously mentioned, there’s (at least on my monitor) an over-saturation in the reds in the photos. Otherwise, this is a fairly stellar example of a towered Queen Anne brick town home from the mid-1890’s. I do find it difficult to believe with all of the architectural drama inside that there wasn’t a more impressive large wrap around porch originally that would have conveyed the interior atmosphere of opulence to the exterior. I believe some of the interior fretwork is similar to the patterns in the c. 1890 Delany & Cutting (Buffalo, NY) catalog: (Internet Archive) https://archive.org/details/ourdoorswindowsh00cutt The black stenciled metal coal hod (for coal and fire tool storage is absolutely one of the finest I’ve ever seen. I’d hope somehow it could convey with the house. Its rare to find a house so intact but by it being in the same family for five generations helps to explain how unchanged it is. Seems reasonably priced for everything offered. Maysville is a picturesque town perched on bluffs above the Ohio River. The town is blessed with having a large number of houses and buildings from the beginning of the 19th century, when Maysville was a busy river port, all the way to the early 20th century. Growth in the 20th century was much slower than in the 19th so more of the early architecture has survived. Taxes are only $582!

      I also found the reds to be strong. I wondered if an effect was applied to the pictures.

      I would also like to see if an old photo or map will show this house having a porch floor or something. Does seem odd.

      I would buy this in a minute. I would change little.

      The exposed brick in the kitchen would be covered back up. And I’d removed the vinyl siding in the dormer windows. The one in the left is blank and needs it’s trim back. I’d gut and redo the bathroom into an 1880s work of art. I actually don’t care for the built in colonial looking bench at the staircase. The wood is a little darker and I wonder if it replaced an earlier Eastlake looking one. Other than that I’d just change some cosmetic stuff. This is a solid place! Work of art.

    I adore the beautiful wooden carvings on the staircase and ceiling. The fireplaces are elegant and classic. I’m jealous for anyone who lives here!

    Why, oh why do they close up those beautiful fireplaces? 🙁
    Can they be re-opened?

      A very good question and I believe I have an answer: please note that the hearths/fireboxes of these fireplaces are all of a smaller size. That indicates one thing-that they were made for burning coal (which puts out a lot of heat for a small amount of coal) rather than wood burning. Retrofitting a coal burner for wood burning would likely require a complete reconstruction of the hearth and for most, would be economically unfeasible. A possible alternative would be to retrofit the smaller hearths with gas burning inserts-I’ve seen antique looking versions advertised in trade journals. Coal burning probably isn’t practical for most folks nowadays as the material produces a lot of soot and ash. When this house was built, coal distributors would ply the streets with horse or mule drawn coal wagons and would stop by houses to fill basement coal bins using chutes which can still occasionally be found. In summary, these fireplaces are victims of obsolete technology.
