American Foursquare built in 1900 for Oliver EvansStunning historically accurate restoration of an American Foursquare built in 1900 for Oliver Evans. It is located in the Bryden Road Historic District and Olde Towne. Stained glass, pocket doors and hardwood flooring add to the Victorian splendor that makes the all important “first impression” a memorable one!
Double pocket doors, oak on the foyer side and cherry on the parlour side, lead from the foyer into the grand piano sized formal parlour. A working fireplace with mantel and mirrored over mantel adds a gracious elegance. Crowning the room is an 18th century restored and ‘electrified’ lamp oil chandelier. Another set of double pocket doors lead to the banquet sized formal dinning room. A working fireplace, with cherry mantel, adds warmth to the room. Picture rail and crown molding adorn the walls and ceiling. A third set of double pocket doors lead into the east parlour, a less formal room perfect for family gatherings. It has a working fireplace and features exposed brick. It rests immediately off a wet bar area with access into the gourmet kitchen. Recent updates include new counter tops, cork flooring and top of the line stainless steel appliances, including a double oven.
The third floor has been transformed into a palatial master retreat. It boasts a king sized bedroom with generous closets. There is an adjoining media / theatre room with gas log fireplace. The floor has its own HVAC system to provide maximum comfort and energy efficiency. A luxurious master bath completes this sumptuous retreat and includes a walk-in shower. The entire bath is covered in a neutral palette of ceramic tiles that are laid in a custom designed pattern.
The grandeur continues outside to the fully landscaped backyard. A privacy fence encloses the outdoor living areas surrounded by lush and mature plantings. It includes a patio for casual entertaining, a hot tub for relaxation and a pond. The garage has a unique double door feature allowing access from the ally for your cars. It also allows it to be used as covered shelter for outdoor entertaining or for washing the car.
This home is located less then 1 mile from the world renowned Topiary Park, Main Columbus Public Library, Grant Hospital, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, The Ohio Department of Health, Franklin University, Capital Law School, Columbus College of Art and Design and the Columbus Museum of Art. Less than 2 miles - the center of downtown Columbus, including the State House, and Franklin Park Conservatory.
