Property Description

This stunning two-story Italianate Victorian style home is a one of a kind treasure. Attention to detail and materials of the highest quality were used in the home. Built in 1863 from stone quarries in Batavia, the home has 22-inch thick limestone walls, original features, and hard to find craftmanship, such as beautiful crown molding and trim, gorgeous hardwood floors throughout, three ornate fireplaces, 10-1/2 ft. ceilings, a curved hardwood staircase, and a cupola that sits atop the roof and is accessed through the attic. The home includes a spacious living room, family room, and sitting room, as well as four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, two half bathrooms, main floor laundry, and a galley kitchen with a Bosch dishwasher, and lots of counter and cabinet space. There are two tandem rooms located off two bedrooms which can be used as an office, den, playroom, closet, or storage. In addition, there is a large room above the garage that can be converted to additional living space or used as storage. The home sits on a large corner lot surrounded by mature trees which offer shade and privacy. There is a paved patio for relaxing and entertaining which leads to a landscaped yard filled with assorted flowering bushes, plants, shrubs, and a fountain. There is a security system, and the property is surrounded by an invisible electric fence, which is not currently activated. The home has been renovated over the years, keeping as many of its original features as possible. A new roof and air conditioner were installed in 2018, and the exterior was painted in 2017. The home is rich in history and the former residence of Dr. Richard J. Patterson, one of the founders of Bellevue Place Sanitarium and the doctor who treated Mary Todd Lincoln, wife of Abraham Lincoln, after she was court ordered to a mental hospital. She is said to have eaten meals with Dr. and Mrs. Patterson at the home. Just a few blocks from downtown, the home is located near schools, a park, and has easy access to the interstate and public transportation. The home stands beautifully maintained, now awaiting the next appreciative owner to continue its larger-than-life story.
