This spectacular 1885 Second Empire Victorian has been meticulously restored to its original grandeur with perfectly executed upgrades while still holding the periodic grace and style of its era. The original architectural integrity and has been enhanced by the flawless marble floors, expertly refinished hardwood throughout, restoration of every detail such as the iron door hinges, stunning kitchen appointments to include granite and 44" cabinetry, and 10 plus foot grand ceiling heights throughout. The ornate en suite luxury master bath, complete with dome ceiling, flawless marble floor, spectacular ball and claw tub, and granite counter are true focal points of calm repose after a stressful day. The natural lighting in this home as it flows through the original lead stain-glass windows lends to a feeling of inviting warmth and comfort. The central air conditioning and radiant heat maintains the perfect balance of comfort and energy efficiency. The home's mechanical upgrades include electric, plumbing, insulation, and heating, all making this a highly energy efficient residence. The generous size of this home is further enhanced by the fully floored, walk-up, third level attic with open expanses, 10 foot ceilings, and lots of natural lighting. For even more storage convenience, there is a partial basement. Historically referred to as The Dill House, this third acre lot backs up to 3 acres of manicured open green space of the Causey Mansion. From the mansard roof to the wide veranda, from the intricate cornices to the Palladian windows and perfectly matched periodic window treatments, as well as cathedral ceilings, this home is a perfect example of what owning a piece of the American dream really was meant to be. Only a short stroll to the thriving downtown, this home's location is ideal and sits amongst other periodic neoclassical residences. The downtown offers live dinner theater, shopping, banking, fine dining, antiquing, as well as fresh water access to Silver Lake. A quick 20 minute drive south to the beaches, let's you play without paying the million plus this same home would command. An under 20 minute drive north, and you can visit Bowers Beach with public boat ramps. This home has wonderful potential for a Bed and Breakfast or perhaps a professional medical or law office. This low maintenance, beautifully sophisticated home, reflects not only pride of ownership, but one that invites you to be part of it's historical significance.
