Property Description

The William G. Nixon House was built in 1850. This home was designed by architect Thomas Walter, best known for his design of the Dome for the U.S. Capital Building. This property is currently in the hands of only the second family to own it--you could be the third! The entry foyer with wood flooring allows you to see the grand staircase, extended ceilings and wood flooring that accent this home. From the foyer you can enter the formal living room with chandelier and marble fireplace. There is a sitting room behind the living room that also has a chandelier, fireplace and built-in cabinets. As you look around you will see that much of the original glass is intact and a section of the painted ceiling was left uncovered.. The formal dining room with chandelier also has built-ins as well as a marble fireplace that has been closed, and a large closet that has a pass-through window to the kitchen. There is also a cupboard that was formerly used as a food warmer! Between the dining room and kitchen there is a second staircase to the second floor. The kitchen consists of a center island and a pantry. There is currently electric cooking, but there is natural gas in the house--you could always convert to gas cooking if you prefer! The kitchen allows access to the 1 car attached garage, or you can go up the private staircase to the former maid's quarters. This room is heated and has water hookup. Returning to the foyer, you can climb the stairs to the second floor. This floor contains 4 bedrooms with wall to wall carpeting and closets. In addition, there is a hall closet. There are 2 bathrooms on the 2nd floor. One bathroom is off of the center hall and has tile flooring, a double sink and a tub/shower. The second bathroom 2 was formerly Jack and Jill style located between 2 of the bedrooms. This bath has a stall shower and tile flooring. There are walk-up stairs to the 3rd floor. The 2 storage rooms on the 3rd floor allow you to store those boxes and items that are not needed for everyday living. There is an additional room on the 3rd floor that has wood flooring and could be used as a playroom, study or whatever you need! There are also additional stairs to the roof and an additional vent as well as the whole house exhaust fan! The basement has inside entrance and also has several rooms--a former coal room, a former "milk room" cold storage that has most recently been used as a wine "cellar", and a utility/laundry room. There is a back exit from the basement to the garage. Outside there is a tool shed (former outhouse), a shed and water is available. The back yard is a surprise and allows lots of space to enjoy nature. There is so much more...schedule your tour today and enjoy this piece of history!
