This is one of the truly grand, turn of the century homes lining Mitchell Street in downtown Petoskey. A majestic craftsman that boasts a large front porch and a stunning fenced in back-yard (complete with the coolest tree house!) is definitely one-of-a-kind. As you enter the grand foyer you are flanked by two sets of pocket doors; one leading to the formal dining room with bay window and coffered ceilings and the second leading to the great room that features a wood burning fireplace, original built-in bookcases and a bowed window complete with window seat. The main floor also has a cozy den, first-floor bedroom, full bath, large kitchen with an eat-in banquet, and a butler’s pantry/laundry room connecting the kitchen to the formal dining room.
The second floor is accessed by a wrap-around staircase and features four large bedrooms. The master bath has been recently remodeled but retains all the charms of yesteryear. No detail in this remodel was missed. The bath now showcases an oversized glass shower, clawfoot soaking tub, double sinks, and heated tile floors. The enviable master closet should not be missed. The second bath on this level has also been updated and is well appointed for families and guests.
The finished lower level of this home is virtually unheard of in historic homes. Finished with a theater room, private office, workout room, gourmet cellar, and lovely half bath, this bright and airy space is perfect for entertaining large groups and provides a place for kids to gather.
