I have seen the word "listed" in connection with the sale of the Bagley house. Is the property in fact listed with a Realtor®™ ?

What I am hoping to see is interior photography.

Of all the things to mess with...the symbolic part that spoke to the original owner’s position in the marble business. It would appear from the veining, that the original marble panels were removed and a milquetoast surround was installed.
What are the chances this material was cut from the original?

I understand the house’s water table was made with rough marble stones.

John, Given Wright’s sharing an office with Corwin during the design of Bagley, do you anticipate similar interior details to those in the Mitchell house may be present, or were at one point? Or might the McArthur house be a better indication of what once may have been at Bagley? The Avery drawings of Bagley seem thin at best on details.
I suppose actual on site peeling away of the later accretions is the surest way to know.

I hope they are able to recreate the fireplace nook.
