Description

This stunning home was one of the original elegant homes on the Ohio River built in early Evansville as the city became an industrial power in the Midwest. Known as the Babcock-Walker, it was built in 1840 by Henry Babcock who was a prosperous merchant. After his death, his widow married a Walker. The home was remodeled in 1876 adding the Greek columns and other ornate touches popular at the time. In 1992 the home was acquired by the Phillips family who embarked on a major renovation which has continued to this day. At 500 SE Riverside the home is located in the Historic Preservation District surrounded by other restored historic vintage houses. Within walking distance is the Evansville riverfront and all it has to offer including Downtown restaurants and event centers including the Victory Theatre and the Ford Center, Haynie's Corner and the Greenway which runs for 7 miles originating just steps away from this home. There are 4 bedrooms, 4 full and 1 half baths, 8 fireplaces, 15 chandeliers, and 12 ft ceilings in the 4500 finished square feet. All of the flooring is original restored hardwood, marble or quarry stone. Fantastic Kitchen. Beautiful gardens featuring a three tiered fountain and brick patios and walks. A list of improvements, utilities and amenities is posted on line and available in the showing packet. This is a must see to appreciate!
