1000 Elm
With each step you take towards this gorgeous home, you will feel like you are stepping back in time. Built in 1904, the stately home has a lot of stories to tell.  Once you reach the spacious wrap-around front porch, you will imagine enjoying a quiet Summer's evening with your friends and a nice glass of your favorite beverage. But let's resist the urge to linger, for many treasures await inside. Once you step through the front door, you'll be taken by the beautiful woodwork and solid oak door of the entryway. There's even a niche to put one of your favorite vases. Let's open that solid oak with beveled glass door and step into the foyer.

Once you're in the foyer, you will see the intricately detailed staircase. Honestly, words just don't do it justice! There are 2 landings and it is certainly the centerpiece of this home. Go ahead, take your time and enjoy the beauty. When you're ready, look just to the left (west) of the staircase. You'll find tucked away a cozy little bench beside a coat closet. A little farther to the left you'll find one of the magnificent fireplaces. Of course it has an exquisite wood mantle and lovely tile. Keep going.. just south of the fireplace you will find one of my favorite features of the home: The turret creates a cozy rounded sitting area. Just imagine the conversations that have happened here. Don't forget to look up! Most of the ceilings in the home are painted with murals.

To the right (east) of the foyer is a nice sized front room. Of course it has the same beautiful woodwork that you will come to expect in this home and a trio of windows on the south with more on the east to let in the light. Be sure to look up and enjoy the unusual fretwork above the pocket doors.  Let's move to the north and take a look at the downstairs library. You'll see yet another fireplace, plenty of windows, pocket doors and fretwork. Oh, have I pointed out the hard wood floors?  They run throughout most of the main floor and second level.  There are 3 levels, you know. Each level offers over 1600 sq. ft. of living space.

Directly to the north of the foyer, to the west of the downstairs library we find an incredible dining room. Of course, there is another fireplace with a wonderful wooden mantle, hardwood floors and the trademark woodwork. The dining room features a trio of windows that arch out of the house with a small bench above a heat register. There is also a very nice Dresden chandelier. Oh my! Look at those transom windows above the doorways; they are stained glass! Through the swinging door to the north we find a butler's pantry. Oh, how I am in awe of this little room. The wood, the glass, the shelves... I just imagine the day when the butler and maids filled it with fine china and crystal then stood there waiting to serve the next course and, of course listening in to the conversations. If only those walls could talk.  Just east of the butler's pantry is the kitchen. It has been modernized with newer appliances and countertops, yet the cabinets are accurate to the home's age.  Between the butler's pantry and kitchen are doors to the basement and to the back yard. In the southwest corner of the kitchen, you'll find the back stairway to the second and third floors.  Let's go up that stunning front stairway.

On the second floor you'll find 4 nice size bedrooms with closets and the upstairs library. It could also be used as a bedroom. There is also a full bath. The woodwork and windows are very nice. The painted ceilings continue throughout the second floor. The flooring is hardwood parquet. The hallway is large enough for a chair at the top of the staircase.  The wonderful character of this home carries through the 2nd floor.  Just lovely.  At the north end of the hallway, you'll find the stairway to the 3rd floor which was originally built as servant's quarters. Much to my surprise this area is quite nice. The beautiful windows continue throughout the 3rd floor and the floors are wood, but the wider boards.  The doors and woodwork are nicely painted. There are 3 bedrooms and 3 storage rooms. Being on the top floor, the bedrooms have some interesting lines created by the peaked roof, and windows. The rounded turret area is especially nice on the 3rd floor. I'm sure it was the play area for the servant's children.

Down the back stairway, we find ourselves in the kitchen. I forgot to tell you there is a bathroom off the kitchen just by the back door. The back yard hosts a 22 x 22' garage, built in 2012, and a storage shed. The east side yard has great landscaping and plenty of room to have a bar-b-que and entertain. The basement has an entrance from the back yard as well as the kitchen. It has a small bathroom, a set of sinks that were most likely used for laundry, the utility room and a couple areas that could easily be used as living areas.
