Property Photo


Fantastic opportunity to purchase this beautiful Italianate style home that has been very well cared for by generations. This home has been occupied by only 2 families in its entire history--with the current owners family owning it for 104 years. This home has been designated a local landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a contributing property of the east end Historic District. Walk into the front arched entry way to an impressive and large central hall off of which were located the gorgeous parlors, library, and dining rooms. This home features an amazing top floor double cupola constructed for light and air offers fantastic and peaceful views. A heavy gold frieze in the dining room ceiling is one of the most unique decorating features. Other features include 5/6 bedrooms, 4 baths, a 3 story staircase, 14 foot ceilings, a 4 car garage, tool shed and an extra lot-sized yard, perfect for gardening, sports or events. "Other" flooring is cork. Noted as the Matthew Finlay home, early documents state that first owner was walking downtown on the day the house was completed, April 13, and heard that Fort Sumter was fired upon.
