This great piece of architectural history which was once known as “Davenport’s Finest Home,” has been listed for sale for just $425,000. This A.C. Fulton Vernacular Italianate residence is placed on a 1.75-acre estate. It was built in 1877 and still features many of the original details such as stained glass windows, light fixtures, extensive woodwork, fireplaces, and pocket doors. One more original and unbelievable thing which was preserved are the wallpapers. As pointed out by one member of Mansions Of The Gilded Age, the wallpapers in the home’s dining room is Morris and Co’s Strawberry Thief crimson/slate, which was designed in 1860 by William Morris.
This home has over 6,500 square feet of living space with 5 bedrooms & 8 bathrooms, and the attic has an additional 2,400 square feet.
The property first came on the market in 2008 for the price of $699,000. But, after numerous price reductions, today this residence can be yours for $425,000.
