Victorian Queen Anne on city lot with 100' frontage, 200'
deep. Recently repainted with gorgeous heritage colors, it has
a huge screened wrap-around porch. Downstairs are 2 parlors,
formal dining room, large kitchen, 2-room suite with outside
entrance, and office room, 2 bathrooms. Upstairs are a
spacious landing with access to a small balcony, 3 bedrooms
and 2 bathrooms. There are a total of 7 original fireplaces.
Landscaping is beautiful in all seasons, lawns, flowering
shrubs, trees (pine, pecan, dogwood, live-oak), and
perennials, fern-bordered woodland paths. Also in backyard are
a tool shed and 2-car carport.
Front door, with
oval beveled edge window inserted opens into the west parlor,
with beautiful winding staircase to 2nd floor, a wide entrance
to the east parlor and a long central hall with entrances into
a 2-room suite (also has separate entrance onto front porch),
an office room in back, and one of the entrances to the dining
room. The east parlor leads through pocket doors into the
formal dining room, beyond which is a large kitchen with
breakfast nook or butler's serving area. The huge landing has
a large grouping of 3 curved windows with a direct view of the
courthouse dome. Both bathrooms upstairs have been remodeled:
one has kept the oversize original bathtub with legs, and in
the other the old bathtub has been replaced by a modern glass
shower. In the bedrooms, clothes closets have been added
because of the usual dearth of closet space in Victorian
homes. Throughout the house are many windows.
