If curb appeal is something that draws you to a home, then take a journey along St. Joseph’s historic Clay Street and notice how this gorgeous yard, lovingly-maintained by a master gardener, just reaches out and grabs you! And, if curb appeal isn’t enough to welcome you to the entrance of this majestic home, the front entryway to this beautiful mansion will blow you away!
If you love older homes, you’ll immediately appreciate the care and hard work that have gone into preserving this 1902 beauty. Once you make a turn after admiring the beautiful foyer and marble staircase, you’ll be able to imagine the gatherings that likely took place in this early 20th century entertainer’s dream. The detail throughout this approximately 6,000 square foot home is pleasing to the eye. From original Spanish brass light fixtures to intricate ceiling stencils and an original Venetian crystal chandelier, each and every turn of the head reveals a visual delight filled with character and detail.
There are still projects to be completed, but this stately home is completely livable, featuring 4.5 bathrooms, 8 bedrooms, plenty of charming nooks and crannies, a backyard ideal for relaxing and a detached garage/carriage house built to look like it belongs on the grounds. The sellers want to share as much information about the home as possible, as they have made it their passion and raised a family here for 20 years. They will be available for questions and answers so they can provide as much help as possible to the new owners.
To provide a little perspective, the home was built for $23,000 in 1902 at a time when many homes were built at a cost of $2,000 to $6,000. Renowned architect Walter Boschen was the mind behind this one. Replacement cost of the home is estimated at upwards of $2 million.
