    On the site a good while ago, did not keep the post. Maybe someone can recall the history, I thought this had started out much earlier than 1916 which was when it had a major update. Or maybe I’m wrong about that part, someone find something! 🙂

    Gotta start with the deep blue bathroom, now is that a stunning blue or what? Having lived in Natchez, MS a number of years I know the houses extremely well. The facade and overall exterior closely resemble the home known as Monteigne in Natchez. The entry hall flanked by large parlors and similar stair case. I wonder if someone loosely copied it?

    Wow! Now this is a truly “elegant” home. My favorite room is the sitting room with the naturally finished mantel, chair rail and crown molding. Sadly, another example of a beautiful old house in a very unfortunate location. Street view is truly disappointing. I would love to see some historical pictures. I’m having a tough time believing the wrought iron railings on the front and back are original. Would like to see what it might have been.

    I wonder what’s through that intriguing doorway off the staircase, about 10 steps up.

      Pretty sure that’s the back stair coming up from the kitchen area and joining the principal stair at the landing, Karen. That detail is a little more visible in this round of pix. It’s not an uncommon feature to have for a house of this size and period.

    Just noticed something else has changed in the blue bath, and my heart is breaking…

    That top-shelf, Crane suite in matte, mustard yellow is rare and highly collectable…

    Grrrrrrr HGTV.

      Looks like the yellow bath fixtures were…painted.

        I’ve been trying to figure that out, too, for the last several minutes. Flashed back and forth and back and forth. Same fixtures—but different color. I agree; they must have been resurfaced. And I also agree with Jay: the canary yellow was to die for! Why break up the happy marriage of a heavenly blue and a happy yellow?

    Nothing about this house seems 1916 to me.

    It all screams 1930s.
