Just a 3 minute walk to the Stockade District where all the excitement is for history, style, great food and drink, you can have an acre of land with this iconic Kingston home. When it was originally nominated for designation, it was noted on the National Register of Historic Places as; 'Architecturally significant as an important local example of Italianate style residential architecture...is an outstanding example of its type and an important reminder of the opulence and social status once associated with this neighborhood.' On the interior of the house there is a broad central hall with flanking formal parlors. (LR and FR) Moldings, trim doors and unique covered plaster ceilings remain in excellent condition throughout these spaces. The second floor plan of the house features a central hall with flanking chambers and a bath. (Actually 2 full baths) Like the first floor, finishes throughout these spaces survive largely intact.' The home remains very gracious and impressive in its simple elegance and scale. There is a former servant stairway leading to the kitchen (one the finest custom kitchens you will ever see...imported from England) in addition to the grand main staircase from the front foyer to the second floor landing. There are also rooms in the basement (not counted in room or square footage counts here) which obviously were once integral to the home's workings. They include a fireplace and mantel, half bathroom and, in the framing, rough plumbing remains of an additional large bathroom with no walls or fixtures currently.
