    This one is earlier, built between 1888 and 1893 as shown on the Sanborns:

    The house was built for banker and public official Charles Love (1842-1910), his wife Louisa Allen and their only child William. Later the home of Rev. Harry A. Gordon.

    The exterior design is similar to a published cottage design by plan book architect David S. Hopkins but I can’t make a positive ID. The interior has a mix of original details with later details. While I personally am not a big fan of the current passion for exposed bricks on the interior in this case they can be covered up if wished or left as is. Not everyone wants to live in the Victorian era and I get that. I am gratified that many of the original period details remain like the lovely staircase newel and balustrade; original door and window trim, and numerous old mantels throughout the house. The house also retains the original porches and what appears to be an old but well-kept garage in the back. In summary, there’s a lot to work with here for the old house enthusiast.

    This house, from the front, looks so much like the house I grew up in! That design for the front must have been so popular. I think our old house was built in the 1880’s. There are a lot of the same design in my hometown of Lockport, NY.
