Welcome to Ainslie. Majestically sitting on the corner of Church Road and New Second Street is this Eastlake Victorian home built in 1886 by Charles Hammond. Now you can own a piece of history. You won~t be disappointed as you explore every inch of this incredible beauty. Because of his love of England, Charles had many of the ornate mantles, wainscoting, hardware, doors, fireplaces, and woodwork imported from England to be installed in his new home. On each floor is an elaborate radiator that can also be found in the Centennial Exhibition in Washington, D.C. The main entrance brings guests into a massive hallway with a 17 step grand staircase with a double stained glass window on the landing . This incredible windowdepicts a woman possibly his wife at the time. Under the staircase is a hiddencloset and wine rack. To the right of the hallway is the palatial living room with 6 stained glass windows depicting flowers. The ceiling and walls have been covered with Bradbury and Bradbury wallpaper from the period. To the left of the hallway is the library with 2 built-in bookcases, a working wood fireplace, and a magnificent inlaid parquet floor. Three stained glasswindows adorn the room. The windows are believed to depict prominent writersof the time. Below the chair rail, above the picture rail, and on the ceiling isoriginal embossed leather. The large dining room will easily entertain large family gatherings and is graced with a working fireplace, working gas chandelier and 6 stained glass windows depicting different food groups. On the walls above the wainscoting is original embossed leather. There is an elaborate built-in sideboard and fireplace mantel. Behind the dining room is a butler~s pantry completely covered in original oak panels with a plethora of cabinets and a dry sink. You can easily access a small private covered porch from this area. In 1992 an addition was added for the kitchen, breakfast area and family room. The family room features a gas burning fireplace while the kitchen cabinets were handmade to mimic those throughout the house. A unique feature is the two stoves, one gas one electric. There is a back staircase with a powder room and hallway with outside access to the portico offering convenient covered parking.The second floor is graced with a large open hallway. This floor offers 4 large bedrooms and a sunken bathroom featuring a jacuzzi tub and steam shower. The magnificent wood work and mantels are still evident throughout this floor. The third floor of this home could be its own private au pair suite or separate quarters for grown children or guests. There is a large laundry room, full bath with victorian tub, two bedrooms and a great room with a working kitchen, living space and access to a private balcony overlooking the neighborhood. This home sits on 3/4 of an acre bordered with a stone wall. A circular driveway affords easy entrance and exit. The enormous wrap around front porch is perfect to enjoy this lovely area in rain or shine. The porch roof has recently been replaced and new tree installed to the porch floor. The property has a stone ~springhouse~ originally used as an ice house, now perfect for storing garden tools. A full basement providing tons of storage completes this special one of a kind home.
