What I love about this home
I love the incredible variety of workmanship in this home, the different fireplace mantles, the fireplaces themselves. Great diversity and exquisite craftsmanship you just don’t see in new construction anymore.  The blistered poplar is a most unusual wood, very similar to birds eye maple.
