Rare to market is a Greek Revival, rarer still is this home's setting: a backdrop of a gorgeous country house and two-story barn right in the heart of the city, in the Haynie's Corner Arts District. Built in 1914 for William Ross and designed by one of Evansville's most storied architects of the time, F. Mason Gilbert, the home sits in the Southern Enlargement to the City of Evansville, meaning the back yard has 40 more feet of lot depth than the Historic District just one block away. With 90 feet of lot width, the home sits on over one third of an acre - practically a private park in the urban context of downtown. The front porch is breath taking, as the Greek Revival architecture features prominent columns with Corinthian Capitals, providing a sense of symmetry, strength, and balance. Inside, freshly painted interiors and refinished floors pull you through the floor plan that seems to be yearning for house parties and art to fill its walls again. Through the dining room and butler pantry, a large eat in kitchen awaits your touches and renovation decisions. The main floor features two large bedrooms and a renovated bathroom with walk in tiled shower and crown molding. Upstairs is a second bathroom with a clawfoot tub and two more bedrooms. Outside, the yard and gardens are bursting with life that's been all organic for going on 20 years, featuring rhododendron, apple trees, peach trees, nectarines, elderberries, figs, blackberries, crab apples, almond, red buds, walnut, oak, bald cypress, cedar, and Thomas Jefferson's favorite apple tree the Spitzenburg. This is the country in the city, and it's the best of both worlds. What are you waiting for?
