William Bell Grant & Kate Grant House

Constructed in 1908 by William Bell Grant and Kate Grant, (Director of the Guaranty Trust and Savings Bank. Formerly housed in the Bostwick Building where Cowford Chophouse is now located), this stunning home, located in the Springfield Historic District will take your breath away. You will be astounded at the detail, design, and scale of this lovely Springfield home.

Featured in the book Jacksonville's Architectural Heritage, this home is significant not only architecturally, but historically as well. This is certainly one of the grandest Springfield homes stylistically. It features double level wrap-around porches, incredible original details such as coffered ceilings, four fireplaces, five sets of pocket doors, an impressive and stately entry hall, original built-in dining room cabinet and cabinet in the upstairs hallway, one of the grandest staircases in the area, and so much more.

Additional details include over 1500 square feet of attic space with great potential for being an additional living space, an artist's studio, etc. The kitchen and the bathrooms are recently renovated, and there is a basement level wine cellar. There is a second, rear staircase leading upstairs near the kitchen, an original butler's pantry, and amazingly...original and still working butler bells!

The house is located on one of the largest lots in the area at almost a half-acre and features ample space for a pool or garden and there is a paver driveway with loads of space for off-street overflow parking. Don't miss the chicken coop! Plans for a garage have also been completed and have been approved by the city (although approval must be updated).
