Once in a lifetime opportunity is knocking! Own your very own piece of history. You can keep this gem all to yourself or perhaps run your own bed and breakfast!? This Victorian Queen Anne Home was built in 1898 and designed by D. Fred Charlton for Louis Vierling. Since that time it has been owned by only two families, the Vierlings, and the current owner's family. Great care has been taken to preserve this home beautifully. The absolutely amazing 4925 sq ft home has a total of 8 bedrooms and 5 full baths. It has been partitioned off into a 3400 sq ft owner's home with 5 bed/3 baths and 2 apartments with their own separate entrance from the back. The original Victorian era details are breathtaking and include... 4 stained glass windows & 2 curved windows, ornate decorative ceiling adornments & plaster friezes, 2 fireplaces, 3 sets of working 8' pocket doors, all original woodwork including walnut/maple floors, 10' baseboards and many original custom built-ins. It still holds all the charm and character that was intended, however it also has also been updated with new roof, hydronic heating w/every room individually zoned, PEX plumbing, 300 AMP electrical and new wiring, unlimited hot water, new sewer line, spray foam insulation, soundproofing, and rebuilt front porch. You won't believe the finished walkout basement with family room, bedroom w/walk in closet, full bath and laundry. The kitchen is also fully renovated with a central granite topped, color coordinated island and an adjoining room for casual dining or family lounging. This top of the line kitchen is outfitted with black Thomasville soft close cabinets (dovetailed drawers) all the way up to the 10' ceiling. Frosted glass doors and European bottom lift stainless steel trimmed cabinets are featured. Walk up pantry, coffee bar and original glass fronted spice cabinets. Induction cook top, Advantium range/microwave, GE Professional French Door refrigerator & dishwasher, all in stainless steel complete this chef's dream kitchen. Home has 2 apartments that could easily be returned back into living area for a single family home with the removal of one 3 foot wall. This area would make a fantastic master suite with a huge walk in closet. 3rd floor apartment would make a nice nanny or in-law suite......the possibilities are endless! Both apartments have been remodeled with new kitchens and new baths. They have hardwood floors throughout. Super cute! This home is in a neighborhood of quality late 1800 homes. It has antique rod iron fencing around the professionally maintained perennial garden. It is walking distance to Lake Superior, downtown, NMU, MGH and many restaurants/ breweries . This is an absolutely amazing property that comes along once in a lifetime. See it and you will fall in love.
