    Reminds me of a prairie style gone eccentric! It is truly a unique house and I mean that in a positive manner. It would be interesting to find out the creative person who designed this house and pictures of it in “the day.” I’m guessing (hoping} the bathrooms still retain their charm and would love to see them. So much in this house and carriage house that is worth seeing and loving. I haven’t decided if this was a 2nd hand shop or if it is the remainder of an estate sale. In any case, old house lovers everywhere demand more pictures LOL!

    The house was built in the 1880’s for Guy Wesley Shoemaker (1866-1948) and his wife Leonora Richardson. Leonora was the daughter of shoe manufacturer and bank president Jackson Richardson, whose Second Empire mansion survives 2 doors east. Shoemaker was associated with Standard Oil and later was in the automobile business. The state CRIS file says that alterations were made and the carriage house was built about 1898.

      Jim, I have come to count on seeing your background info to put most houses in context. How do you DO that?! I imagine you poring over old tomes in a high garret, cross-referencing various sources for hours. But it comes across like magic, like you are the medium at an old house seance, instantlybchanneling the spirits of the architect, builder, owner, and later residents! I’m not sure I want you to break the spell by actually telling us how it’s conjured up. Priceless! Please never stop.

    Lovely home. Looks like either an estate sale or an antique store. I love the room with the unpainted wood ceilings.

    Those stained glass windows in the staircase are amazing.
