  3. Wow now this is a hearty house. Did they have wallpaper when this house was built?

    5
    • Hello:

      Thie house originally had wallpaper. The green paper in the front and back parlor is a reproduction of the original. All the other papers are reproductions of wallpapers found in other historic homes across the country. For example, the entryway and upstairs hall paper is called Garfield Hall, and is from the President Garfield Historic Home in Mentor, Ohio.

      If you would like to know more about the other wallpapers email me at ron@kuhnel.com

    WOW. And Eureka is a beautiful town.

    This place is simply amazing. (Wish there were more photos of the newer home.) Much too much house for me, but I wish I could take elements of it (those built-ins, that beautiful varnished woodwork) and incorporate them into a smaller dream house.

    • Thanks for your comments on the house. There is a lot more to this house and property than the realtor could cover.

      The woodwork is all old-growth redwood and the finish is shellac

    STUNNING ! When I win the lottery..oh yes.
    The windows are exceptional. Rarely see so many original windows, bubble, florex, stained and leaded… They are all in this home. And the fireplace tiles..yes !
    One would certainly not get bored here. Even bees on the grounds to keep you busy.
    I’m not sure about books in the attic. Usually hot and damp doesn’t work for a library. And a beer room? Okay… you all see it. Magnificent. Yes, would like to see the rest of the ‘compound’. Photos of the other home(s) Awesome place.

    • The attic is very dry. Eureka weather is very unique and generally cool. The highest temperature on record is 87 degrees Fahrenheit

    Upstate, NY

    Ever since Kimberly62 shared this over the weekend, I have been trying to figure out the kitchen set-up. Apparently, as the floor plan seems to confirm, the main kitchen area has cabinets, an antique stove and a refrigerator, with a sink and countertops in what looks like a former pantry – ? Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad it wasn’t all ripped out for the sake of an ill-advised contemporary kitchen, but I’ve been trying to come up with a way to make it work a bit better while in keeping with the rest of the house, which is gorgeous…

    • The kitchen is been kept original in keeping with a preservation philosophy. The butler kitchen was not a pantry. There is a pantry but the realtor neglected to include that in the photos, This set up worked very well as it is only a few short steps from the sink to the stove,

    What a stunning house! It has all of that glorious UNPAINTED woodwork. Incredible. I’d love to peek under those carpets…I’ll bet those wood floors are just scrumptious. As for the kitchen, I wouldn’t change a thing! Yes, it’s a little awkward to have the sink in a different room, but it’s in the BUTLER’S PANTRY!!!! My heart so longs for a butler’s pantry… sigh….

  10. This has got to be one of the most spectacular houses I’ve seen. I love the stained glass windows, built in cupboards and unpainted, woodwork. The staircase landing and the width of the doors, etc. are massive! I’d love to see the original floors. The kitchen is great even with the sink in the other room (although inconvenient) I love the books in the attic. So much house! What a treasure!

    This is, literally, my favorite house in the entire world. I used to walk by it so many times–I’m sure the owners thought I was some weird stalker–just to stare at it (I lived on I Street). I liked it better when it was red, though. Don’t care for this exterior color scheme. The person(s) that bought it in the early 2000’s also bought the corner lot and turned it into this landscaped wonder–replete with pond. It was just SO lovely…le sigh.

    • After purchasing the house in 1998 my wife Melanie and I set out to restore this remarkably intact house to its original grandeur as much as feasible. This 20 year project culminated in repainting the house in its original color which was determined by an analysis of all the paint layers. So this is why it is now in that color.

    PS: I also worked for the Piersons for several years (their offices are in the Pierson “Model” home, which was originally located at Pierson Building Supply and then moved up the hill in the late 1990s), whose father “invented” the Pierson home. Great piece of local history!

    Double PS: The William S. Clark house at 1406 C Street has been on the National Register since 1988, as well as many others I know of so…someone (the listing agent?) needs to be a bit more thorough with their research:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_S._Clark_House

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_F._Ricks_House

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Register_of_Historic_Places_listings_in_Humboldt_County,_California

    • The relator may have misunderstood me when I told him the Magdalena Zanone house was the first single-family residence to be listed on the National Register which it was. The William W. Clark house was a Bed and Breakfast so did not really qualify as a single-family residence. A year after we listed our house good friends listed thE Cottlrel house, So there we were the first single-family residence, but not the only one, I wlll have the realtor correct this.

    I have to admit my favorite space in the house is the attic library. I do have an overwhelming desire to pull up the carpet in the main rooms to see the hardwood floors below…..

    • The floors under the carpet are 2×6 old-growths redwood. While they are beautiful the wood is a bit soft and was intended to be carpeted. We tried leaving them bare with rugs, but they were getting dented so chose to carpet them which as I said was consistent with the original intent,
