Historic Home Tour
The Levy’s Queen
Anne Home on North Marshall, just outside the Historic District has
been given attention to detail and careful restoration. Visitors will
certainly take note of the Tuscan kitchen and the lovely grounds.
its debut on Home Tour this year, the levy home has been lovingly
restored by Bob and Claire. Built on what was originally a cherry
orchard, the Levy’s still enjoy a number of the original trees.
Claire and Bob acquired the home in 2001 and have worked non-stop to restore this lovely 1884 Queen Anne to her former charm and elegance. The carriage house has been replaced (the original collapsed over 40 ago). This replacement replicates the lines of the original home design and now adjoins the house.
Most of the original burled wood trim and doors have been preserved. The owners have painstakingly refitted the kitchen cabinets by hand. They used the traditional cabinet making craft by using ornate, patina leaded glass, all made and fitted by the owners. Claire’s many years of professional interior design experience compliments their efforts throughout the home.
Numerous family and architectural antiques decorate the home. The Levy’s have also gathered many antique artifacts during their many years of travel in Asia, India and Indonesia.
NOTE: Guests are asked to refrain from rubbing the Aladdin’s lamp... one never knows exactly what may happen!
