  1. Well, here goes…! The bathroom that has that gorgeous tub is to die for! The home in itself is very beautiful, however can someone explain just why that awful green is in all the rooms?!!! It looks so dreary! With drapes, walls, furniture, etc. all being the one color, it takes away the initial beauty of it all… and WHO puts a dead animal in the kitchen?!!! Who hangs dead animals on walls in an historic home?!!
    I look at historic properties on different websites every day and I have never come across anything like this… never! Whoever used the wording “looming and demonstrative” is inaccurate! This is a gothic revival style home! The exterior colors used is what makes it look that way. I don’t know if it was the homeowners choice or some decorators choice to use that horrible color scheme, but it doesn’t do it justice, nor do I believe it is period correct. Green is not exactly my favorite color, but this shade of green REALLY is not my favorite color! On a more positive note, at least it isn’t something permanent! I would also like to see more pics of that brick tunnel area. I don’t know what the comps are like in that neighborhood, but the price doesn’t seem too bad. If this “looming and demonstrative” home looks like this now, can you imagine how it looks in the middle of one of those harsh winters? That being said, the home is still eye candy!

  2. Thanks for sharing this Melissa. I’m not sure how others are going to think about this one. It is kind of hard for me to see past the dark brown exterior. For me it is too one-dimensional and needs contrast. The interior is really nice for the most part, but again it is one-dimensional with nearly every room the same color green. For me, it gives the impression of an unimaginative decorator, or one that had too much of one color on hand and had to get rid of it. The baths are a love hate relationship. I love the white one and hate the black one–again with NO contrast, no imagination. I tried to see what the house could be but the aforementioned kept getting in the way.

  3. I absolutely LOVE this place – the dark floors – the green/gold walls and how the rooms were furnished all work for me – personally, wouldn’t change a thing here…….!!

  4. I think the point was missed here. I “think” the decorator was going for an Addams’ Family vibe! I didn’t like the green at first, but it grew on me. I think I would be very tired of it though, as my time there went on. I would definitely be looking for some light colors in the spring!
