    Federals are not usually my style, but I’m glad I looked at this. It has so many beautiful original pieces. And what an awesome view of that lake!

    Federals are a favorite of mine and this one is lovely. The bee hive oven, the wallpapered parlor, the stove, and right on the lake. ❤️

    What a view! Is that wallpaper in the sitting room,or a mural? If its a mural, howold, I wonder. The kitchen looks so…50’s, so I think that would get a do over-lots of unpainted wood cupboards. I bet this house has a nice, high ceilinged attics, a place you can send the bored kids on rainy days. I love the fan lights-classy! If the addition and garage are in good shape, I’d put a matching brick face on them, to match the rest of the house. I wonder why this house is being sold as is? Too bad they don’t say. I love it!

    This is an ignorant question. Why were federal houses built without porches? Was it a matter of style or function?

    The “Zuber” scenic wallpaper in the “good” parlor appears to be period … and, if so, would probably be original to the building date of the house! …. It is “extraordinary” to find “period” scenic wallpaper “intact” anywhere in this day and age. I restored a “set” of this paper for a client in the entry hall of their house in Cincinnatti which was “of the period” – and it is the ONLY set that I’ve encountered which is original – and of the period – still in it’s original setting! Very impressive house – with “very cold and windy” winters!

    1979 That 70's show
    Otis Orchards, WA

    Quite a beautiful home! I love the interior! Many thanks to the owners of this lovely home for taking good care of her and sharing with us!

  7. This home was featured in the NYTimes Real estate feature page two weeks ago. Be sure to check out the family’s webpage describing Camp Manor’s history and more pics. http://www.campmanor.org It seems the family meant to maintain it as a historic house museum? Hopefully, there are renovation and property restrictions as conditions of sale. Yes, the wallpaper is a rare treasure indeed.

    I do so like this house, but I totally love the wallpaper. It simply takes the room to another level. Gorgeous and then some!!

    I agree with all of the compliments listed above and add to it the beauty of the staircase. I wonder if that amazing secretary in the green parlor, next to the fireplace was built for that alcove…it seems to fit so perfectly. I also wonder if the lot across the street from the house is included. If so, it would give the property direct access to the water…awesome!
