    I am especially impressed with the radiators at the front door. You walk in to coziness on a cold day.

    I would totally buy this. Some houses painted woodwork was period choice, but the dining room and hallway I surmise were probably not painted originally. This type of “Eastlake” woodwork on the stairwell and beautiful archway that you can’t see unless you take the virtual tour was usually recommended to be stained or varnished wood. Part of that style recommended in books from the period. I would have that all stripped. Potential here. Very good potential.
