Jawdropper Alert! This National Register Italianate is Remarkable

This gorgeous c. 1874 Italianate sits on an unbelievably charming, tree-lined street and immediately drew me in with its fabulous wood trim, decorative bays and carved stone details. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the interior packs in even more original details. Enter through substantial double doors and you’ll find 12′ ceilings, ornate hand-carved woodwork, stunning arched doorways, ceilings mouldings, fireplaces and more! The wallpaper in the entryway is also just lovely in the space, I must say.
