This elegant Victorian town home, built in 1894, has some historical significance in that it was the personal home of John Bechtel, the architect for many of the homes in the Centre Park Historic District. This one is large! Hardwood floors throughout this 3 story, 6 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom, with full basement home. The first floor consists of a massive formal living room with wood burning fireplace, incredible woodwork on the large entry ways and fireplace mantle, a large formal dining room with gorgeous pocket doors, an incredible butlers pantry with huge amounts of storage space, and the kitchen, built in 1976 as a special edition for the Bicentennial, has tile floor and counter-tops added recently. 2 Staircases,the Front for more formal times and the Rear staircase for comfort. A 1/2 bath is also off the kitchen. The back door leads to the deck which offers a sweeping view of the formal enclosed gardens. Established trees and a magnificent weeping spruce are the highlights of the garden. A sizable 2 car garage for safety and ease is at the rear of the property. The second floor offers 3 large bedrooms and a magnificent bathroom in a stunning black and green tile. This home has been featured on several of the Centre Park Historic Districts Christmas Home Tours as well as being featured numerous times in the Districts Garden Tours. The back bedroom also has an overlooking porch of the deck and gardens. The third floor has 3 great shaped bedrooms, and another large bathroom with claw foot tub. This home has been through a major updating by the owners over the 29 years they have owned it. It truly has it all for the person who loves history and the details given to these historic homes. The Home is painted in Victorian Style and as a Painted Lady. Heating is gas fired steam. A must see!
