Reminds me of a house type that was discussed here at some length in the past (Laconia, NH example below) and there was another example in California but enough is different here that I’m not ready to call them a match. So many windows everywhere makes me wonder if they were cheaper by the dozen back then? They do provide a lot of natural lighting. The interior is nicely appointed with fine millwork including the large interior columns. The next owner will need to decide which direction to take the house in-either go for a period restoration or a blend of old and new.

I ran across a David S. Hopkins house plan design that may be the inspiration for this house-see attached. It does exactly match the Laconia, NH house but still not similar enough for me to say it was used for the Coudersport home’s design.

Many beautiful interior features, save for the unfortunate mantels, drop ceilings, industrial carpeting and kitchen. Those defects could be addressed!

Agree with you but let’s also include the dreaded “almost new”windows😕

Except for those disagreeable atrocities that have invaded this stunning home I agree it is not a deal breaker and can be addressed.

That “turret” on the right corner of the home is unusual looking. Is it original? Would it have had a round roof? The main thing that caught my eye was the baby grand. Is that a Steinway and Sons? The picture is super blurry there, but to my musician’s eye it looks like it could be…. Anybody know or can see it better than I?

I’m curious about that myself. If it isn’t original, it was done fairly early in the century, just my opinion. This was during a time period where people were experimenting with combining different looks and styles so it’s anybody’s guess.

disclaimer: if i owned such a home or a home like 90% of the homes featured here, i would NEVER EVER, NOT EVER paint or otherwise alter the extensive dark wood, including the floors. the only alternation i’d make is refinishing/repair where necessary. i might even not refinish floors but only buff and wax. are we clear? i respect it & often find it beautiful. but why is it the norm all over the country? why didn’t any builder choose a lighter wood? or painted wood? did a handful of influential architects and builders decide dark wood is the ideal and no one deviated? if i owned such a home, i would paint every plaster/dry wall surface in pale, airy grays, creams, whites, blues, and greens. same with rugs and furniture and window treatments. i’d feature textures and styles, rather than strong and/or dark colors & furnishings. while the velvet furniture and omnipresent oriental rugs and red/rust/olive green paint and heavy window treatments are appropriate to the time, i couldn’t live with so much visual weight around me. it feels crushing. my color concepts would make the grand spaces feel light and airy…almost like the space is floating. *sigh* back to reality.

Not all woodwork was finished in a dark stain. The colonial revival period in the early part of the 20th century saw a lot of woodwork that was meant to pe painted from the very start! Many of the homes in the Revolutionary period of our country also had painted woodwork. I’ve also seen quite a few examples of lighter colored woods being used and given a natural finish with no stain. I do share your thoughts on painting the woodwork white to, “brighten up the space.” It irritates me to no end! Also, it should be noted that the lacquer finish they used does darken over time, making the finish look darker than it was originally! Loved reading your thoughts and passion about these old homes!
