Cheshire looks so cheery and harmless, while Gloria always looked like she could eat her children.

In one of the bathrooms, the sink has a cylindrical appurtenance of some sort with a grid of holes, seemingly for gushing water, which looks rather ominous, sticking straight up from its perch. What is it, and how is it used to cleanse? Does it come with a speculum? Why do plumbing manufacturers feel the need to reinvent the good, old-fashioned faucet on a regular basis? What's next, a computerized faucet with an app telling you when to wash?

Looks like a lot of love was put into the updates; the kitchen is nothing if not neat. Are the stone floors original ? They look brand new.

here's an article that touches on the Kingloff house, but it's mainly about Atlanta resident Melissa Galt (FLW descendant).

In this realtor's speedy video marketing the Kingloff house, is Melissa (with red hair) at 0:47

I like the bed of loose stones adjacent to the chimney mass. Masonry rising from crushed rock works for me, indoors as well as out !

I'm sure Robert Green never aspired to or succeeded in being trendy or in any other way fashionable, so it is interesting and a little bizarro to see this makeover & marketing. The particular realtor representing the property is the hippest go-to person in the area for marketing high-end Modern houses. So, the jazzy styling is high-powered but also maybe awkward -- the distant sound one hears might be Robert Green rapidly rotating in his grave.

Melissa Galt has been to a dinner party at my house and I've talked with her at length. I recall her mentioning that she'd met Robert Green "many moons ago", but she did not go further (as she did in that interview) and offer that he was "quirky as sin."
I'm rather pleased & intrigued to hear that assessment, and would like to hear some elaboration ....
