Pretty Old Eclectic Craftsman Bungalow in Oakhurst

Built in the 1920’s this house definitely has an eclectic style.  There are the craftsman elements like the exposed rafter ends and stick work in the gables (these are the horizonal pieces of wood that stick out and look like they hold up the roof.) The windows are prairie style.  The front door is covered with a tudorish castellated  parapet (sort of) with an arch.
It’s just plain funky.
Inside it’s all craftsman bungalow.
 Gotta love that front door…
and the craftsman style fireplace flanked by prairie windows and built in bookcases. Umm, Umm, mmm.
Look closely at the corners of the opening to the dining room.  They’re covered with old fashioned moulding.
The 1 inch wide oak hardwood floors are original.

Here we have the totally remodeled kitchen with all the modern conveniences but the vintage details.

The kitchen sink is vintage. It’s a single bowl farm sink. So cool.
I have to let you, dear reader, in on a little secret. My daughter and I did this backsplash. It’s her house.
We had a little help cutting the corners of the marble inset over the range. For tips read my previous post on tiling a backsplash.
 A wall was removed to open up a former bedroom to the kitchen. Now there’s a wonderful family room/kitchen.
How about that 1970’s style chair?  I absolutely love the bright poke-you-in-the-eye yellow.
This bungalow has a center hall–the wainscotting was added. Centsational Girl has a great “board and batten how to.”
Look real closely at the wall at the bottom of the bedroom door on the left.  See that round thingy?  That’s the old temperature control.  It opened and closed the damper on the coal fired furnace in the basement.  Ahh the modern conveniences this house had.
Here’s the middle bedroom with Granny’s bed and a vintagey chandy spray painted white. I highly recommend round bulbs.
The nursery is in the back.  For all you thrifty guys and gals: the rocker came from “Last Chance Bargains” a mere $10 on half price day.  It cost more to rent the upholstery cleaner.

The all new hall bath is decked out in white subway tile with blue glass accents.
Some time in the 1960’s this bedroom was added.  It was finished to match the period of the home.
The moulding and trim as well as reclaimed doors and hardware are vintage style.

The master bath is all new–they didn’t make ‘em like this in the ’20’s.

One of my favorite features of this house is the lot. It’s incredibly huge. 
 I swear you could build a regulation football field back there. It goes on and on–this picture doesn’t begin to show how big it is.
This photo shows the gravel patio and new fescue sod.  In the summer there’ll be hostas and hydrangeas along the property line on the left.
Here’s what you see when you pull in the drive, a nice little path to the backyard.

Let me know if you want to take a look.

    Here are my tips for you, for free. :) As you can see in the first picture, I was NOT perraped for the shooting to start. You swipe your card, so I was calmly putting it away when flash! oh The second one shows Mikko was still not perraped, but by the third we had our acts together. :) So think through your four poses ahead of time, get lined up, and go for it. Although, frankly, I think being unprepared looks even funnier I love these real film ones, which are a dying technology. They have this booth at our science museum, which is where we took this. I almost gave up on the developing, though. It took about 10 minutes, instead of the advertised 3.

    Terry, the gravel is chipped slate. It's not as finely chipped as we thought it would be. Maybe it's chunked slate.

    I can't quite place it but I think I've seen it. That parapeted porch room is unique. What kind of gravel?
