    I love this place, even with all the quirks. So many great features. My favorite room is that attic bedroom with the green paint I would never have chosen, but the lovely light and the feeling of calm. Someone awesome owns this house.

      I like the bedspread & sham in that room, and… the chaise lounge is right next to the windows & for in winter, right next to the radiator, too! Perfect for reading or napping!

    Anyone know what the rectangular thingy hanging near the window on the side of the garage is? And/or what it’s hanging from – the double circle object?

      Just theorizing. Double circles are motion detection lights. The rectangular screen hanging from the lights is there to protect the windows from basketballs. See the hoop stand? Or not.

        I enlarged the pic – agree that the double circles are simply lights. And think your theory about the hanging thingy (screening??) may well be for the basketballs which didn’t make the basket – or the backboard .

    Nice looking home. I think I would put a small table in that kitchen nook.

      Yes, that breakfast nook definitely needs a table & chairs (or benches – not sure of its width)!!

      • Assuming the floor tiles are 1′ x 1′ – the nook is about 5′ wide x 2½’ deep, a rather small space for even as little as a small table, two chairs and two people. Given the paucity of cabinet space in the kitchen proper, the glass-fronted cupboards on either side of the nook are likely in active use, to which furniture would present an impediment. (Neven fear, there’s only one more sentence emulating John Daly of What’s My Line…) The kitchen’s adjacency to the dining room compensates in some measure for the nook’s size or lack thereof. (Lovely place, and I do like the compact kitchen.)

          I didn’t think to check out the floor tiles, re: measuring; good idea. Anyway… it’s wide enough & deep enough for a small table with two benches for seating an adult on each side, or two little kids on each side perhaps. Or one adult & small child on each side… And benches would allow access to those neat built-in cabinets.

    I wouldn’t change much right away except that purple entry hall.

    I like it all. The zoo is across the street. NO wallpaper, thank God. I like the interior colors. Just wish it had a bit more land around it.

    Is that a Ta-coumba Aiken painting above the sofa in the living room?

    Although wallpapers are both liked and disliked, when this house was built (possibly a couple of years before 1919 as little construction was going on during the peak of WWI.) wallpapers were in widespread use. The interior color choices here are contemporary with tastes in our times and at least they are not the formulaic greys, blacks, and whites used ad nauseam from the TV decorator house shows. (those colors do appear to be waning in popularity-keeping my fingers crossed!) I like all of the built ins as well as the very intact nature of the interior.

    Current owners are definitely not afraid of color but to me they aren’t very period correct but paint color is easy to change. Lovely, spacious home

    I had a comment that was apparently deleted. I didn’t think it was offensive but if it was please explain why so I don’t make the same mistake again

  13. When I saw the exterior, my first thought was “Christmas!” With the snow, the white and red would be an ideal base for holiday decorating. On the other hand, the interior colors lean toward Easter. This reminded me of the old saying, “If it were not for Easter, we would not have Christmas.” Perhaps this is the best of both worlds.
