    The house was built for merchant Warren Estabrooks (1827-1906). I can’t confirm it but it looks very much like a Barber design.

    What a great house! I have never seen a sink in a dining room before, kind of like it!

    I love the look of the house. Great color scheme and nice curb appeal. The park across the street, although small is a nice touch!

    Lovely textbook example of a turreted late Queen Anne style home. I vaguely recall it was photographed in black and white and was featured in the 1973 Dover book: Victorian Houses: A Treasury of Lesser Known Examples. Here’s a copy on Thrift Books for less than $5: https://www.thriftbooks.com/w/victorian-houses-a-treasury-of-lesser-known-examples-dover-books-on-architecture_clay-lancaster_edmund-v-gillon-jr/1085475/item/5629208/?mkwid=%7cdc&pcrid=395931190724&pkw=&pmt=&slid=&plc=&pgrid=83211845752&ptaid=pla-838337053911&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIyKm46P6D6AIVkvhkCh3jZQQcEAQYASABEgIVX_D_BwE#isbn=0486229661&idiq=5629208 All photos in the book are B & W. I agree that this house has a Barber design flavor and the 1896 date would be a time when Barber’s firm was very active.

    I don’t need this house and I don’t need you! All I need is a swan, one hanging pan from the kitchen, and this ashtray. And one stained glass window. And the picture of the flowers above the mantle. I don’t need any of it except a red and white striped thermos!
