I really like just about all of this beautiful home. It looks like it would be in Connecticut to me.

The only thing I really don't like is the landscaping in the front of the house. The front needs something else....a walkway or maybe a porch.

It looks unfinished to me.

I live in a suburb of Seattle Washington don't get me wrong the house is beautiful but I wouldn't call it a spare home.  You would have to pay upwards of $2 million for this home in our craxy real estate market

It's a beautiful home. I lived in a house in NY that was also built in 1922, in the late 80's. Seeing these photos sent me down memory lane. Thanks for sharing!

Re: COMFORTABLE BUT SPARE FAMILY HOME IN SEATTLE

I hear you about the inflated real estate values, @danusz!  Agreed.  I meant "spare" more in the sense of the way the house was decorated, not in the value of that very substantial property.  Some designers would have taken their cues from the distinctive architecture and gone in a more elaborate and layered decor, but this one elected to keep things simple, with primitive antiques and portraits, almost rustic accessories, and most importantly, not too many of them.

 

@DREAMON, you have a good eye!  The site mentioned that the "new landscaping" for the house would be going in as soon as spring arrived there...

 

I just love houses and architecture from that era too, @foolywooly-- you get that craftsmanship that is rarely replicated these days.

I like most of this house. I dislike the front yard landscaping, or lack thereof. I dislike the open shelves for dishes in the kitchen. Beautiful staircase & back yard view!

So true, @oznell . Not only the craftsmanship, but things that would never be built in a modern home. The home I lived in had a "telephone" room!

It's a great house, but I would redecorate.
