John Derian.

‘‘I wish I had spray dust or spray dirt in a can,’’ he confesses. ‘‘I don’t want to lose the look of the place — I want that patina.’’

I have kids that would be more than willing to spray their dirt on his house.

Very handsome. Clearly the space once had pretensions to elegance, what with the handsomely restrained mantel, lofty ceilings, graciously proportioned windows, door casings and compound crown moldings, as seen in the bedroom. Clearly it harkens back more to the very late Federal era rather than the overwrought Victorian, at least in its original DNA. The space has also seen alot in its time, giving it a patina that does not need spurous "dust in a can" to show that it has lived through many ups and downs before this latest upswing in its fortunes.
