Description

Circa 1883. Owner David Stuart estimates that it will take several years to remove the concrete-based brown paint applied by a bridge painter in the '60s to cover the 7,000-square-foot, Stick-style Victorian house. The interior, however, only needed a tad of polish. The varnished cherry and bird's-eye maple woodwork is set aglow under electrified gaslights. Don't let the exterior renovations deter your visit. Ninety stained-glass windows, eight pocket doors with stained glass and a magnificent entryway reward those who pass through.Publicity and Awards: Collectors Journal, Telegraph Herald.Location: City/Urban.

“Although the guide at the door had warned us that the interior was incredible, we were still flabbergasted when we stepped into the foyer of this house.”
