Built in 1904, this is one of the homes built by the B.F. Weber Construction Company, which also served as architect. The style of the house is eclectic with Colonial Revival as the dominant design. The façade shows the detailing of Doric columns for the full width porch, Queen Anne detailing on the window’s balcony with turned wood columns and an arched window at the peak. Originally, the exterior of the home was narrow wood board siding.
As you enter the home, you will immediately notice the oak woodwork that has been restored to its original beauty. Each doorway is capped with the original fretwork and crown molding. The living room is furnished with Victorian furniture and the fireplace, although not original with the house, is of the same vintage and from another building nearby. The dining room crystal chandelier, with classical revival detailing, is original.
The kitchen has been redesigned to convert the porch into an eating area. The lovely deck and beautiful landscaping create a quiet oasis in the city. In the hallway return to the front hall is the original built-in china cabinet.
The beautiful oak staircase to the second floor is simple in design. On the second floor, view the master bedroom and adjacent sitting-room/office. The upstairs flooring is pine, while the doors and trim are maple or gum. The ornate door knobs are of special interest. The current owners restored these after careful study of the two metals used in the hardware.
