This house is the sister house to mine. My home was FX Jardon's "Sunday City Home." This was his magnificent country home. The current owner graciously allowed me inside his beautifully renovated home to take pictures. It really is in immaculate condition.
And here is it today. I love the blue the current owner chose! Notice the gingerbread is gone.
Beautiful shinglework on the rear turret. All the brickwork has been newly tuck-pointed.
The barn, also built by Spurgeon, then.
Here is the barn present day.
Without being too intrusive to the current owner, I don't think he'd mind if I shared a few interior pictures to show the great attention to detail that Spurgeon gave.
All the floors in the house are different inlay patterns. The staircase is simply amazing.
They still have the original door bell... and it works!
All the doorways in this room have a different shape. (Remember, these are plasterwalls , folks!)
