The grandeur of this 1889 Victorian residence is nothing short of breathtaking. Its architecture melds Shingle style with a Queen Anne turret, enriched by a robust Richardsonian Romanesque influence.The owner has staunchly safeguarded and preserved its original details—from the wallpaper and plaster castings to the intricately carved woodwork. Positioned on Doctor’s Row along the majestic Bellevue Avenue, this home now seeks a new custodian to return it to its former splendor. The foyer delivers a stunning first impression, crowned by a stained-glass window atop the grand staircase; note the buttressed plaster details framing the area, the corner fireplace complete with a welcoming wood bench, the original wallpaper, and mahogany inlays that edge the parquet floors. Candidly, this house requires significant restoration. Yet, for those passionate about revitalizing history, it offers an unmatched opportunity. This investment is a testament to the craftsmanship of a bygone era.
