Experience the grandeur and majesty of a home that has watched all of Wausau grow around it, been cared for and loved by many and only getting better with time! Welcome to the Andrew Warren Historic District and welcome to the Knox-Kreutzer House! Established in 1887 and built by William LaSelle this stunning Queen-Anne Victorian will transport you back to a time of decorative excess while also showcasing each prior owners charm and ambition. If you’re looking for more than just a home and in a fantastic location, look no further. Located in downtown Wausau you are in an area of extreme walkability and positive growth. Within minutes you’ll find yourself venturing to popular restaurants, entertainment venues, grocery stores, coffee shops, offices, parks and the YMCA. This home is ready for a new owner who can see the endless possibilities available and the opportunity to own such a historic diamond. A grand and inviting front porch with pillars and balusters welcomes you to a foyer ready to take you to a Narnia of 5 bedrooms, 3 and a half baths and so much more. Hardwood floors guide you all throughout the home. Find yourself relaxing in the living room equipped with sliding French doors, crown molding, stained glass windows, mantle gas fireplace and 2 chandeliers. The office/library which sits in the heart of the property also has another wood burning fireplace, 3 sliding door entrances into other common main level rooms as well as the solarium. Did we mention there’s a fountain? And you can see it very well from that solarium. The formal dining room is large enough for a memorable holiday gathering and tops it off with parquet flooring, gorgeous chandelier and furnishings that may come with the home if you’re lucky. Soapstone counter tops, cherry custom cabinetry, tin ceiling, butlers pantry and classy stainless steel appliances will be sure to make a foodie fall in love while in the kitchen. Heading upstairs you can take one of two ascensions either by the grand wooden staircase located in the foyer or the more discreet maids staircase which runs from the kitchen area to the bedrooms of the second floor. 4 bedrooms (or 5 depending how you look at it) and 3 bathrooms await you. Bedroom 1 has been turned into a creative space for an art studio with fantastic lighting, master bedroom boasts extra space, fireplace, walk-in closet and a bathroom. Guest bedrooms are equally as spacious with another full bathroom and generous closet space. Modernization of the second floor has taken place and you will definitely not feel cramped with the extra wide hallways. Another second level bath has been updated with a whirlpool tub and Kohler fixtures. Your maids staircase takes you to maids quarters with new washer and dryer which do come with the home. If you don’t think there’s space yet for extra creativity, storage or bedrooms then pass through the common laundry room and continue to the third level which could be your fifth bedroom or an entire living unit (27X11). This third level has been updated recently and provides access to a sink with running water, closet space, triangular windows overlooking the yard and 2 other smaller rooms which could be used as bedrooms, studios or offices. Measurements of these smaller rooms would be 11X15 & 10X11. Outside one of the few remaining carriage houses has enough room for 3 cars and takes you to a second level that’s insulated and has the ability to be heated. This garage could be used for storage or turned into a guest house, office, studio or man-cave. If not a primary residence this property would make a savvy investment as an office, AirBnB or bed and breakfast. More updates and historic information on this home will be available at the time of showings. Much of the furnishings are negotiable and willing to be left by the sellers as they are very specific to the home. This investment has been priced extremely well to reflect today’s market and we’re certain you won’t be disappointed.
