    Well, drats. I was hoping this had been going through restoration since it sold last.

    Agreed. Hopefully someone will soon rescue it and restore it; every day they sit empty is a little more work required in the end. This may not be a big house, but it was obviously high-end back in the day, with all of the little “extras” it has. Hopefully the parquet floors are not damaged…

    I didn’t know Barber designed any smaller homes. Perfect for me! Except I don’t love there. Hope someone brings it back from the brink soon.

      He designed in every price range, from houses even smaller than this to very large houses and even some churches and commercial projects. Hopefully Chris will leave us a post as he is the resident expert.

  4. Barber designed a ton of cottages. There is a George Barber enthusiast group on facebook. The admin has an interactive map of Barber houses that he has been working on. I am not sure about pasting links here?

      Thank you for mentioning the Facebook page for George Barber enthusiasts. I’ll look them up. This site is so informative and inspirational. Thank you Kelly for your hard work and all the people who post comments and links to other homes of interest or further information on the current home. Such a fabulous education!

      My favorite part- the transom leaded glass window. Darling baby, save her!

    Thank you Kimberly for bringing it to light again!

    Looks about the same as it did a few years back. Not everyone who buys an old house jumps right in an goes about restoring it. On the plus side, no one has gone in and gutted it to the studs, “HGTV style”. In streetview, it appears to be in a relatively safe and stable neighborhood with well maintained homes around it. There’s lot remaining to like inside like the patterned parquet floors, the quartersawn Oak mantel the built in china cabinet, and what appears to be Oak paneled doors instead of the more common two over two raised panel pine versions. A proper restoration of the front porch could really make a difference for this house. Despite an absence of recent restoration activity, there’s still plenty of potential for this one.

    • I actually used to live in the same street as this house and have always wanted to see inside! The neighborhood is very nice and I had no problems! I can’t wait to see what the buyer does with it!

    Check the foundation, electrical, plumbing and fix the sag on the front porch then slap on some paint, polish the floors and give it good cleaning and the majority of the house is done…..then there’s the kitchen…..it’s GOT to go. Restore to period.
