The flat-topped roof, stone edifice and decorative trim are hallmarks of the Victorian-era architecture. Inside, the home has a breathtaking spiral walnut staircase, matching pocket doors (look for them in the dining room), inlaid floors and ornate plaster molding.
Hints of luxury were added to the house during its restoration, including a heated three-car garage and four-passenger elevator to all levels. But in our opinion, the stairs are too cool to pass up.
