This is one of the finest examples of Queen Anne Architecture that you are ever going to see! This home was built in 1890 by L.C. Bissell with no expenses spared. Upon entering through the front door you are met with an exquisite foyer that displays the quality craftsmanship of woodworking from the wooden
parquet flooring to the coffered wood ceiling. The fireplace in the foyer has tiles made in Spain with the same Moorish pattern that you find throughout the grand staircase. The main floor boasts of an updated kitchen with custom cabinetry that matches the original design of the cabinets in the butler’s pantry. A large dining room is a great place to host family and friends. A charming library with wonderful built ins and a wood burning fireplace is so inviting. Spacious living room with tons of windows makes for a wonderful gathering spot. The wrap around porch offers a place to relax with plenty of privacy. Upon climbing the grand staircase you will enter into the second floor that has another large foyer and 5 nice sized bedrooms and 2 full baths. The grand staircase then takes you to the third floor with another 2 bedrooms, full bath and an amazing billiard/ballroom complete with raised musician’s platform.
Recent updates include rebuilt wrap around porch, new driveway, expanded garage, geo thermal heating/cooling, solar panels, Hardieplank cement board siding, copper gutters and down spouts and energy efficient windows.
This 7 bedroom, 3.5 bath home has all the character and charm of yesteryear with the modern improvements for today’s living. Extra large yard complete with flower and raised garden beds along with many unique landscaping specimens.
The goal has been to add modern convenience and efficiency to the architectural beauty of an 1890 Queen Anne Moorish sub style Masterpiece!
