Transcript ESkfe RESIDENCE OF N. CARPENTER The rooms on the first floor have all open fire-places, each being provided with a neat ash mantel. The library is an excellent room with good front and side views, and the veranda is reached in an easy manner by windows from this room, making it a pleasant retreat in hot weather. There is a variety of outline in the exterior of this house, which cannot fail to give a picturesque and pleasing appearance to the whole. The chamber above library projects slightly beyond the face of the octagon bay, and the peculiar manner in which the sides are supported is odd, but gives the appearance of stability and firmness, the construction being perfectly sourd. The upper sashes are filled with stained glass, all round the sash being very small lights of different colored glass, and the center light has the figure of a flower in white on blue ground. This manner of treating windows must be seen to be appreciated; and no blinds are used except on the lower sash, and when the blinds are closed it gives a mellow tone to the light of the interior. The back hall is reached by side porch, and the bath room is placed so that anyone coming into the house can step into bath-room, and prepare their toilet before entering the main house; the second story rooms are full height; and there is a well-lighted attic above. A laundry is provided in the cellar; also provision is made for the storage of fuel, etc. Cost, $2,500. RESIDENCE OF REV. DR. MARBLE. The exterior design is plain, yet picturesque, and gives one an idea of ease and comfort. The roofing over the hall and sitting room is a particularly fine feature, and the elevation of the rear is very striking, the roof over porch being a part of the main roof. The interior arrangements are very nice, the hall being spacious, and in it we have an easy and handsome staircase of plain design, constructed of Georgia pine; the newel extends up to ceiling of first floor, while the other two posts extend up to the ceiling of second floor. The dining-room is a very cheerful room, and the kitchen is reached through a passage also connecting with side veranda. The pantry is lighted with a window placed above press ; each fire-place is furnished with a neat hard-wood mantel, and the hall is finished in Georgia pine, the floor being laid with this material, and finished in natural color. The exterior is painted as follows: Ground, light slate ; trimmings, buff; and chamfers, black. Cost, $2,925. Copyright. 1888. by Palliser, Palliser & Co., Architects, New York.
