    Except for the one bright white painted mantel inside, I don’t see much to tie it back to its early Gothic Revival roots. The exterior still retains some Gothic Revival details so it would be up to a future owner to decide whether to try to recreate a Gothic Victorian flavored interior or not. Just down the street is this very popular early 1900’s “Dutch Colonial” plan book house https://goo.gl/maps/ZdFwPfxafRn2xRSW6 from the Grand Rapids firm of J.H. Daverman. In his ads, he claimed this was the most popular house design in America at the time and cited it being built over 800 times.

      I’m glad they didn’t lose those glorious barge boards, though. Even if they went back to a more historically correct siding it would help.

    I love this one! It’s close to perfect, and not too much to take on. (?)

      Hello everyone,this is my first time posting. This house is in my home town where I grew up. It had been vacant for quite some time. But last I saw it the kitchen was not gutted and the price was less. This is and was a beautiful house. I always admired it as I walked to school everyday. The neighborhood is very family friendly and it sits next to a church.I hope the new owners will love and take care of her .

    Interesting – this old listing seems to indicate that someone bought this house, ripped the kitchen out, and put it back on the market for $20,000 more:

    It’s a bit of a distance for me, but if I’d seen it then, I’d’ve been on the phone pretty quickly. Even now I’m pondering – it sure has a lot of charm, and the trees and picket fence give it a wonderful sense of privacy…

    The home of Horatio Nelson Warren (1839-1919), a merchant and postmaster. Warren was a local hero in the Civil War and was promoted to Colonel, a title he used the rest of his life. He and wife Mary Eberhart moved to Buffalo in the 1880’s where he became a large dealer in slate mantels.
    The house was on the village map in 1873 and likely was built just a few years before that.

    Any thoughts on whether the external cladding, which I’m guessing is timber milled to look like rusticated stonework, is original?
