Feeling Sentimental

My hubby found the original, well probably not the original, original but the listing for our house when it was listed in 2008. We had never seen it before so it was great to see the house when it first went on the market back then (it was in such GREAT condition) and we finally saw some of the historical info about the house.

Here are the great photos from the listing. WAY better than my crappy photos.

Does anyone know what style of house this is?







  





Here is the listing:

"Meticulously restored to its 19th Century Grandeur, this 6 bedroom, 3 full bath showpiece boasts 3 full floors, a total of 13 rooms and 5 fireplaces. New designer kitchen with soapstone counters, terra cotta floors and top of the line stainless steel appliances. A home of rare and historical distinction, truly is the original Field house built in the 1880s by Charles Field a noted carpenter and member of the prominent Field family dating back to the early 18th Century. This treasure of a home also boasts a recent exterior paint job of impeccable detail, a newer roof, a new fence lining the property across the huge double lot backyard and along the carriage house, a detached 2-car garage, period Kentucky bluestone slate patio and walkways, plus a professionally-landscaped setting for a utopia all your own."

I'm going to print out this information and put it in an album. It's sentimental.
