About This 1883 Chadwick House In Fernandina Beach Florida
Locally known as the Chadwick House, this unique Victorian home was built by prominent local mariner, Captain Stephen Chadwick, Jr. in 1883. The Queen Anne style wood frame home, set atop brick piers, has been lovingly maintained throughout the years by descendants of the Captain and is situated over the expanse of six 50×100 city lots. Set in the heart of historic downtown, the charm of this unique property spills right off the wrap around porch and onto the streets of Fernandina Beach. Its rich history is revealed in every intricate detail, from the ornate, carved wood banisters to the original working fireplaces and heart pine hardwood flooring. Quaint picture rails and original windows and millwork take you back in time while the majestic stained glass windows are its crowning glory! Beautifully complimented by an updated kitchen complete with granite counters, farm sink, and custom cabinetry, this home perfectly blends old and new.
