This stunningly well-maintained, Queen Anne style Victorian residence is perfect for your family/guests and even fit for a future would-be queen! This renovated beauty is historically-accurate and located in the coveted North Hill Preservation District. At almost 5,000 sq ft you will be hard-pressed to find a finer home, with the gorgeous mill work, high ceilings, and beautiful finishes throughout. Built in 1900, on a Revolutionary War battlefield as a private residence then converted to a multi-family rental for 60 years, this home has many connections to local and British history. Fans of “The Crown” will be intrigued to know that the most famous tenant was Wallis Simpson, (former wife of local military legend “Win” Spencer.) She would later create a scandal, when King Edward VIII abdicated the throne of England to marry her thus changing the line of British succession forever. The home has undergone extensive restoration work from 1977-2023, with the finest attention to detail. You’ll fall in love with the gorgeous gingerbread woodwork/scroll work, operational pocket doors, beveled/leaded glass in front rooms/reception area, grand stairwell, expansive and updated master suite with dressing area, front and side porches, 4 full baths with vintage details, fully-equipped kitchen with butler’s pantry, energy-saving insulated walls and storm windows, updated plumbing/electrical, six original fireplaces (with elegant mantles and tile surrounds – one very rare!), fully-finished attic space with tons of storage…plus neat surprises like a Harry Potter room under the stairs & a secret room! The .25+ acre corner property includes iron fencing, detached 2-car garage, and even a heated doghouse! Roof replaced in 2022 (50-yr shingles), 4 HVAC units, & 2 water-heaters (one on-demand). Caution, ghosts included! If you have been looking for an exquisitely-maintained, turn of the century residence…this is the one!
