I received an email in February from a reader named Dr. Michael Seitz who, like me, has an affinity for unusual historic homes. This is his house story, told in his own words…
Earl Young circa 1960
“This particular one was completed in 1918 apparently, and it was essentially a rectangular box, with no extraordinary features other than it had walls of stone, typical in the area at that time.”
“The decor was by Liz Seitz, using sunset colors as her inspiration!”
[Sarah here:] From what I know of Earl Young houses – and I’ve seen a few of them in person – this is a bang-on re-creation and wonderful tribute to the eccentric builder.
