What would you call this old house???
This is our 1860's house that's just south of Albany, NY. We just call it a "19th c. farmhouse." Anyone have any insight as to what else it might be?
Some interior details...3100 sq. ft, 6 bedrooms, 2.5 bath (obviously added after construction!), five rooms on first floor (kitchen, dining room, living room, parlor, "playroom" plus an entranceway. Two staircases--front staircase has two landings as it curves up.
No structural changes have been made to the house--just man's first aluminum siding in the 50's (which went over where the wood scalloping was as well), a temporary porch railing (as shown), and the shutters were taken down (and a couple of aluminum ones put up...but not all the way around the house like it used to be.).
