A job brought them here and although they're heading off on an adventure, they'll be back. Felt now might be the best time to sell in preparation for some changes in the future. What an awesome Victorian lady this one is,built by a George F. Barber. Much of the original features have been left intact so any updates you decide on should be focused around that built in charm. Located in the downtown Historic District, so you can walk to the covered farmers' market, the Sunbury Riverfront Park and the new microbreweries and coffee shops on Market Street. Call me - she's a beauty.

    Yes, and I also love the exterior color scheme and architectural embellishments. And that rich interior wood is beautifully enhanced by the red paper. Red is not usually a color I’d choose but here it is just enthralling.

    Have any of you noticed how many great double-door entries we’ve seen here on OHD lately?! Check this out. This is just from the last few days!

      And if you need a screen door for the double doors, you could always look on the side of the garage?

        Great catch Michael. Someone better take those in before they rot away to nothing! I’m not a huge fan of that style of hanging antique doors and shutters on walls outside for decoration only for them to be rotted out and lost forever.

      Take the virtual tour yet? Its fun and you can really see those amazing front doors!!

      We’ve seen some great double doors on here is right! Some of them do appear to have been updated later with full glass doors not original to their 1880s, 1870s designs, but none the less beautiful.

      Double doors were very practical! Furniture was large so moving stuff in and out was easier to do through the double doors. Moving things onto the front porch, or outside for garden. There is a silly myth that the doors are wide for the sole purpose of taking coffins in and out. There still is no evidence anywhere to validate this from documents from the period.

    Wow! That red wallpaper in the foyer really grabs you by the optic nerve and yells “look at me”! Not a color I would choose but it really makes that area. And, that stained glass door is magnificent!

    That’s a great house. I wish I could go see it. No grass to cut either. The neighbors are restrained quite literally with the prison on the next block. https://goo.gl/maps/27WMtqWm4Nw93fr86

    I’m going to have to look at it on a bigger monitor so I can see the detail.

    I was sold at George F. Barber and completely delighted from there! The doors, the floors, the kitchen upper cabinets! Wow! Then you have the fireplaces, the colors inside and out – simply amazing! Now, if I could get my hubby to agree to retire in Sunbury, PA. The price is mind-blowing.

    Taking the virtual tour. The current dining room clearly wasn’t the original dining room. The room next to the kitchen with the woodwork painted white was probably it. I wonder if the purple room was originally two rooms and opened up at some point.

    If only it was on a bigger piece of property, I’d be packing my bags.
