Like many of the houses built in the late 1800’s, this lovely specimen had been chopped up into apartments. The current owner is returning it to its former glory and making full use of the 2,800 sft. The first floor has a living room with a gorgeous Kensington tile fireplace (made in Newport out of clay from the Licking River), a library, dining room and kitchen (with a heated floor, tin ceiling and Dutch door). The front staircase leads to a small office, a guest bedroom, laundry room with flex space and a master suite with a vintage claw foot tub and a reclaimed stained glass window by the shower. There is even a planned home theater for the third floor (not open for the tour). The back staircase (also not open for the tour) takes you down to the kitchen. The private side patio offers a wonderful outdoor seating space. This renovation is creating a showplace home that you will enjoy seeing in the “in progress” state.
