This historic home in the Museum Hill neighborhood will take you back in time. Built as the Civil War was coming to an end, the home has been carefully restored. Beautiful hardwood floors greet you at the foot of the sweeping staircase as you enter the parlor of The John Townsend House. You’ll quickly understand why this home earned the City of St. Joseph’s Landmark Commission’s Preservation Award in 2014. Between the original floors, doors, and trim, you’ll be swept back in time without sacrificing the modern conveniences we’ve all come to appreciate. From the parlor, you’ll go through the formal dining room before arriving at the kitchen and first-level bathroom. Upstairs, you’ll find three large bedrooms and a second bathroom. Between the large porch, the private balcony off the master bedroom, and a larger balcony facing the historical homes in your neighborhood, you’ll have a hard time choosing between the gorgeous interior and the inviting exterior. With updated electricity and plumbing, a newer roof, HVAC systems, and a hot water heater, you’ll be able to appreciate the painstaking rehabilitation and enjoy the character and charm of this historic gem without worry. Write your next chapter in the pages of this home’s history book!
