Built in 1908, this gorgeous 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath historic home was set for demolition after a tree fell through the back half during Hurricane Michael in October of 2018. Private, preservation-minded investors purchased the home and are nearly finished restoring it back to its former beauty with careful attention to historical details. You simply must see this home yourself to appreciate its spacious, light-filled rooms. The top floor has 10 foot ceilings, but the bottom floor boasts 12 foot ceilings! Brand new, high-end pressed metal shingles on the roof ensure historical accuracy, along with a 100+ year peace of mind. The original pressed metal roof on the original two car garage (with walk up loft!) is likely nearing its 100th birthday, but it has been rigorously inspected and has no leaks. The bottom floor contains a jewel box of a powder room tucked away under the stairs, while the upstairs guest bath holds the original clawfoot tub, along with floor to ceiling bright, white new tile. The roofline was raised in the addition to accommodate a brand new master bath where once was just a small, dark closet. Now, cathedral-like ceilings and a wall of historically appropriate windows set the stage for a free-standing, insulated soaking tub with rainfall shower head. His and Hers vanities, a separate water closet, and additional walk-in closet complete the Master Suite. Beneath all the beauty, there is all new plumbing and electrical throughout. Much care was taken to restore the original hardwood floors throughout the home, as well as restoring the original one-over-one wood windows. The expansive kitchen boasts custom cabinetry and quartz countertops, as well as a large open space perfect for a casual dining area. This historic gem in beautiful Downtown Bainbridge is within walking distance to a craft brewery, fine dining, and local shopping. This is everything you want, minus the work!
