Come home to Santa Fe Avenue in Salina, Kansas!

The belle of the ball on a tree-lined thoroughfare just south of historic downtown Salina, this 1883 Victorian-era Stick-style residence is a true masterpiece of craftsmanship, recently renovated and restored from top to bottom. Known as the Thomas Bond home, this elegant heritage home is located in Salina’s Historic District, surrounded by majestic homes encompassing a range of period architectural styles. The culmination of careful collaborations between the current owners and local craftsmen, the interiors are pristine, the finishes are superior, and a complete effort was made to save all original detailing–a monumental task but breathtaking in its final effect.

Easily configured to suit any living arrangement, any style of entertaining and any life changes, the home has three main floor living areas, a grand dining room and a stunning gourmet kitchen which will make you feel like you’re on stage and star of the show!  The center south-facing living room boasts an electronic gas fireplace with original tile and trompe-l’oiel, and a door to the south veranda. The north living room–also an optional main floor bedroom with half bath–makes for a great media room.  An ornate vestibule opens to a foyer with the grand staircase you would expect to find, complete with stained glass and an upstairs landing with a door to an exterior porch–perfect for overlooking the picturesque street view. The formal dining room is large enough for a crowd and gives way to a spectacular kitchen–complete with granite counters, subway tiles and a full range of professional stainless appliances.  Natural daylight floods the space from three sides with an additional door to the side porch and garden.  A back service stairway lead upstairs with an additional stairway to the attic at the top of the stairs.

Upstairs, the owners created an enchanted private space, with sleeping chambers overlooking mature trees and beautiful outdoor vistas through the original full length windows, and the long-length quarter sawn pine floors glistening in the morning and evening light.  With numerous possibilities for any lifestyle, the rooms open in a way that allows for a multi-room primary suite with guest space, sitting room, library, or a nursery and auxiliary bedrooms.  No matter how it is used, conveniences like a 3/4 tiled bath with stained glass, a centrally located laundry room and a period-appropriate lavish primary bath with marble double vanity, tiled walk-in shower and claw foot tube make this a one-of-a kind supreme achievement and the ideal “next home.”

With the assistance of a team of professionals the current owners reworked this home throughout, with all new drywall, electrical and plumbing.  Three heating and cooling units service the home and additional preparation was undertaken for future attic expansion.  Nothing was left unnoticed, including restoration and conversion of the original fireplace and gas light fixtures.  The exterior has been restored, repainted, re-glazed and boasts a color palette which highlights the wooden details typical of the architectural style.  Centered on an oversize city lot, the home is shaded and sheltered by magnificent trees and has a single garage and rear alley entrance to the grounds.  A once-in-a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of history that will live on for another lifetime!
