Blenheim mansion has been noted to be one of the finest surviving villas that were built by Harford County's industrialist at the turn of the 19th century. It retains almost all original features including 8 finely detailed fireplace mantles, original heart pine flooring, elaborate interior and exterior woodwork, and sits on top two man made terraces. The house was built by local master builder Jacob E. Bull for Henry A. Osborn and all his original designs and features remain. The home has over 76 original windows most are 2 over 2 double hung sash, but the main front parlor has floor to ceiling 2 over 4 double hung sashes that open into the wall to allow passage onto the porches. Oak and Chestnut mouldings can be found throughout the main floor originally crafted and installed on site with extreme accuracy. Large 8-1/2 foot tall double pocket doors are in the main entry foyer, front parlor, middle parlor and dining room with original keys. Modern upgrades include a large 18 X 22 country kitchen with custom made wood counter tops, a 52” x 108” center island with built in appliances, 4 zones of heating and air conditioning, full basement workshop with new concrete floors and new 400amp electrical service with commercial grade wiring. Bathrooms fixtures are restored and contain the original oak detailed sink frames, bowls and marble tops that were installed in the early part of the 20th century. The home has many other original features like the 130 year old hand made stained glass windows, the stain glass transom above the front door includes Henry A. Osborn’s monogram, the original 44” oak front door has been restored and all hardware remains in good working order, unique Victorian era lighting, original round wooden door knobs, functioning transom windows over every 2nd floor interior door way, and many other irreplaceable items. The home was even the setting place for Disney's Tuck Everlasting in 2002. The house was owned by the original family for almost 120 years and is now home to a new family that cares about all the hard work and effort that was put into constructing such a building so long ago. See documents for extensive list of upgrades completed by current owner during their stewardship. The Victorian house, purist will not be disappointed.
