    Description

    The Towle House is a Classic Historic Home that shows its grandeur as soon as you step through the front door. Built in 1874, facing Hallett Street but with a Montauk Avenue address, the Italianate residence has bracketed eaves and lacy porch decoration and was constructed for Amos Towle, who both lived in and operated the Towle Institute, a school for boys, from the house. The home had also been a bed and breakfast for a number of years, but most recently a single-family residence. Located in the heart of Old Dauphin Way, walkable to all that Downtown has to offer as well as our best Historic Neighborhoods. You will notice the spacious rooms of this house that feel even larger with the height of the ceilings. This could be the house for you if you have wanted to be near to Downtown, but need a bigger house with many bedrooms, plenty of closet space, and a big yard! The property is just over Half an Acre with a glorious Live Oak in the front yard overlooked by the expansive front porch across the brick walkway. The wide-plank original hardwood floors are spectacularly presented throughout much of the home. Downstairs features a gracious dining room, double-parlour, additional den/living room, full sized pocket doors, antique chandeliers, butler pantry, built-in bookshelves, plantation shutters, and wide foyer. The kitchen is spacious with a center island, breakfast area, decorative fireplace, slate flooring, granite counters, glass-doored cabinets, and tin ceiling tiles. There is both a front and rear staircase. Upstairs offers 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms along with updated, recessed LED ceiling lighting. The side yard is perfect for a private garden while the rear of the home has a wonderful New Orleans style brick courtyard. An adjacent 28x21 workshop has power and water along with concrete floor and cinderblock walls. The shop would make a great artists studio and has room for both. Behind the shop is 15x12 secluded greenhouse. New roof installed 2021. The yard is elevated from street level. Brick skirting around the crawlspace. Owner has exterior shutters for the windows that have been refurbished and painted in storage to go with the house. Exterior wood siding repair and painting is in process which is why the shutters have not been placed back yet. Please come visit and see for yourself this dear Southern Gem.
