Steamboat Gothic

615 W Clay Ave.

What an impression this Steamboat Gothic home makes as you stroll through our town!  Stop and view the defining open porches from the yard surrounded with mortar and iron fencing.

Open the charming beveled glass door to enter the foyer. Check your appearance in the amazing tiger oak bustle mirror. Turn and view the fretwork, hardwood floors and the open staircase with a 19th Century figural lamp on the newel post. Step into the library to feel the warmth a fireplace makes with its beveled mirror, mantel, tile work and a decorative iron cover.  Relax in the living area with a bay window and one of three stained glass windows in the home. Beautiful pocket doors open to the spacious dining room. A second fireplace brings warmth to the visit and the room. Check your bustle again as you pass by to ascend the stairs to the second level noting the stained glass window on the landing.

Upstairs there are 3 and perhaps 4 bedrooms. Through the window of the front bedroom you experience the full effect of the open covered porch. The center bedroom shows the bowed window overlooking the yard plus a private door that leads to the hall bath. The bath shows great detail with the tile over the tub/ shower and the historic flooring.  Across the hall is the master bedroom with a walk- in closet and an inviting master bath.  Up the second story stairs to an amazing attic area. The finished room boasts a spacious cedar closet. Wondering about the structure? In the attic is the cantilever that reaches to the basement. This insures a sturdy, aligned structure. 

Going to the main level from here take the back stairs. These lead to the main level and into the addition of an updated kitchen, dining, family area and laundry. Cherry cabinets, granite counter tops, gas stove plus an additional built-in electric oven are all in place. Double pane tilt windows and built-in seating with storage make this area quite efficient.

There is a double detached garage, beautiful plantings and for the golf enthusiast...a putting green.  Lots to see! Lots to enjoy! Only four families have owned this lovely home. Come and be the next owner of this one of a kind, comfortable home.
