This beautiful two storey limestone and timber house is elaborate with its lovely windows and hoods. The grand entry to the home is magnificent. The detail in carpentry is awesome and you probably would not see a house being built with this sort of architecture today.

Sadly on April 22nd 2008 this architectural wonder located on Crumpton Street was destroyed by fire, leaving it a shell of itself. Maybe it will be gutted and rebuilt with as it was before. At some later date I will post some images of the burnt out grand house.

  1. oh no! There goes another beautiful old building. I wonder what the chances are that it really will be rebuilt?

  2. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

    Don't my people realize what they are doing to architectural buildings that has so much history. I would rather see so gems than to see the kaleidoscope images that they have these days.
