C. W. Gerichs House

Doll house vibes! This ornate Stick-style Victorian makes us want to hop right into a time machine back to 1891, when it was built in San Jose, California.

Architect J.O. McKee designed the house for C.W. Gerichs, a German immigrant, who, with his brother and another man, owned a high-end furniture dealer called San Jose Furniture Manufacturing Company. It also dealt in rugs, upholstery, draperies and the like.

What I wouldn’t give to see what furnishings and wall coverings he used to decorate this place.
