820 WEST WALNUT STREET, KOKOMO, IN 46901
The Main Floor
Step off of the sidewalk-lined street and up the steps to your main entrance, which welcomes you into an enclosed porch perfect to enjoy the seasons year-round. Double French doors open from the porch to your large parlor, and natural light pours into the room.
An original fireplace surround will immediately catch your eye. It is one of three gas fireplaces in the manor. A genius feature: the mantle has two hidden outlets. You can just picture two tall Tiffany Lamps once illuminating this space. Originally built in 1921, you will appreciate the hints of history in the high ceilings, arched passthroughs, original hardwood floors, wide trim, beveled glass mirrors, phone cubbies, original glass door knobs, built-in bookcases and grand fireplaces.
Formal Dining Room with chandelier, wall sconces and chair rail leads to one of two first-floor kitchens. The main kitchen has new laminate flooring, pendant lighting and room for an island, breakfast nook or eat-in area.
On the opposite side of the manor, is a covered side porch with entry into a living room with gas fireplace. This area of the main floor also includes a bedroom with full bathroom and easy access to the second main floor kitchen with new laminating flooring. This is a lovely option for in-laws quarters, a college student retreat or for other in-home independent living situations.
The Second Story
The second story features two full baths. One offers jacuzzi tub with shower, and the second full bathroom with a standing shower. From the right of the landing and at the end of the hall, is the owner’s bedchamber with gas fireplace and walk-through closet connecting a large sitting room. The room layout is also ideal for an attached nursery, office or home gym. Additional bedroom with built-in bookcase at the opposite end of the hall.
To the left of the landing are three additional bedrooms, one of which includes a kitchenette. Another amazing option for in-laws, an older child, college student or in-home helper. This section of the manor also includes an additional staircase with access to outside entry.
Most recently, this property was used as a single-family home; however, it has potential for three units. Mudrooms off of both rear exits lead to the exterior, which is adorned with walkways, greenery and a brick patio.
Located in the Old Silk Stocking Neighborhood, this Colonial Revival is situated on a double city lot with partially-fenced yard and original carriage house, which is now a four-car garage. Within walking distance to Downtown Kokomo, the library, the Kokomo Farmers’ Market, parks, trails, the Seiberling Mansion, local dining, pubs and boutiques. So many memories for you to create at your West Walnut estate!
