About This 1881 Victorian In Grand Rapids Michigan
This stunning Queen Anne Victorian home is instantly recognizable as one of the crowning jewels of Heritage Hill. It was originally built in 1881 as a farmhouse. It was then acquired in 1884 by George Davis – co-founder of Stow & Davis Furniture Co. – and remained in his family for 100 years.
Davis transformed it into a showcase of impeccable design by adding hand-carved mahogany mantels and bookcases, a stunning, walnut staircase, Mission-style oak paneling, and custom stained glass. This elegant craftsmanship remains intact today, with original hardwood flooring, 10-foot pocket doors, 11-foot ceilings, and a welcoming wrap-around porch, all situated in a peaceful, park-like setting.
