Description

One of Wausau's finest homes, situated in the beautiful Highland Park neighborhood of Wausau, was designed by renowned architect Alexander Eschweiler for D. C. Everest who spent 46 years as General Manager of Marathon Corporation, was President of Wausau Paper Corporation and was part of the original Wausau Group. A timeless design, this Mediterranean revival home, is an architectural marvel and features a barrel tile hip roof, stunning brick corbelling, leaded glass windows - some featuring stain glassed characters and figures, gargoyle topped buttresses, half timbered overhang, carved sandstone entry and iron railed balconies. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, amazing architectural details include arches, beamed ceilings, gorgeous handmade, glazed (some hand painted and some embossed) tile floors, cast bronze hardware, wrought iron railings and a loggia (porch) which overlooks an enchanting courtyard. A family has loved and cared for this architectural treasure and kept it true to form for the past 50 years. This home is highly livable and the owners have made it even more so with the addition of an ultra-high functioning chef's kitchen and a luxurious bathroom which serves the main bedroom. The kitchen features tile flooring, a large island with a chef sized sink and seating area, two dishwashers, a double door Subzero refrigerator, a cabinet with remote controlled doors for storing small appliances, a pot filler faucet with a second sink and the centerpiece of the kitchen - a magnificent La Cornue ( https://www.designerappliances.com/blog/la-cornue-range/ ) duel fuel range. The bathroom has vintage imported tile floors, a jetted tub, a steam shower, heated floors and fog proof mirrors. Adjacent to the kitchen is a casual dining area that leads to a grand dining room with a table that comfortably seats 12 people. The spacious living room has high tech lighting, a great spot for a grand piano and a wonderful gas fireplace. In addition, there is an elevated music room which overlooks the living room and a sunroom, with southern exposure, which is protected by gargoyles on the exterior and has large floor to ceiling windows on three sides. The walkout lower level is warm and inviting and has a hallway that would be a perfect place to house an art collection, a bar room with a wood burning fireplace, original bar with built in lighting and an amazing billiards room. The lower level also has an area for storage, a workshop, mechanical room with state of the art boiler and a spacious laundry/craft room. The second floor has a grand hallway, six bedrooms and a sewing room with built in cabinetry. There is a two plus attached, heated garage with built in storage cabinets and a utility sink. The large lot with a sweeping lawn, in-ground sprinkler system, and large flagstone patio with grand stairs, evokes a feeling of a European estate. The home has private areas including a walled patio with eastern exposure which is a great place to enjoy morning coffee. The original backyard tea house, with a fireplace and flagstone floor, could be restored to its original entertaining glory and provides great views of the surrounding neighborhood and this grand, one of a kind home. This property has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places which provides benefits to owners.
