Description

On the National Registry of Historic Places, this architectural masterpiece is available for its next caretaker. Designed by renowned architect, Alexander Eschweiler, from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and custom constructed for Wausau’s premier citizen, D.C. Everest, this majestic estate embodies coveted history. Completed in 1928, this three-story, 17 room Mediterranean Revival mansion is filled with rich details and elements of English heraldry, musical motifs and Spanish accents in the leaded and stained glass windows and various imported tiles. Aside from the artfully designed and renovated kitchen and primary bathroom en-suite, this home retains its original, well maintained state. As we enter the forecourt, observe a fountain with statue, gargoyle-topped buttresses (each one is unique) over the solarium and an impressive sandstone carved doorway, flanked by majestic magnolia trees. The two story grand foyer welcomes you inside. The main level includes a music room, notice the lighting and leaded windows dedicated to the motif, spacious great room with soaring ceiling with hand hewn beams, stately gas log fireplace, observation railing to music room, and bench seating over the radiators, solarium room, cloak room & powder room, formal dining, breakfast room, and the magnificent furniture style custom kitchen, masterfully designed in 2003 by Mick DeGuilio. Some notable kitchen features are the custom range by LaCornue® with dual gas and electric functions, instant hot water, pot filler spigot, vegetable sink, multiple natural stone surfaces, built-in cabinet style Sub-Zero refrigerator, 2 full size dishwashers, cabinet with automatic doors open to reveal microwave, small appliance spaces, along with a wine chiller. There is also a step-in pantry behind an arched door. Enjoy the comfort and passive warmth from the in-floor heat. The stately staircase leads to upper level extending to two sleeping wings. The primary bedroom en-suite has 3 banks of windows overlooking the front of the property, its bath was artfully updated, designed to compliment the aesthetic of the home, it is adorned with Ann Saks wall tiles and 200 year old floor tiles which have been reclaimed from French cathedrals. It will be your private oasis with steam shower, spa tub, private water closet, coffee/tea bar with instant hot water spigot, sound system, radiant in-floor heat, 2 person vanity area, dressing room plus bonus sitting room connects to a secondary bedroom with its own full bath. The other wing leads to 4 additional bedrooms and 2 full baths, along with sewing/project room with built-in storage and work surface. Moving to the lower level, reveals the library with book shelves lining the walls and a built-in safe is at the room’s entrance along with an adjacent powder room. The arched hallway leads us to the walk-out family room with beamed ceiling, wood burning fireplace with one of a kind custom fire screen, stained glass windows with card playing characters that set a whimsical tone for entertaining at the original curved wet bar with tiered, lighted beverage display and original cooler. Just beyond is the billiard room with gas fireplace, set to a thermostat and built-in media. The lower level mechanicals wing offers a spacious home-makers room, which includes the washer, dryer and provides abundant storage. The boiler system has been completely updated with a wifi/smart system. The modern comfort of zoned central air-conditioning has been added. To add efficiency and preservation, the leaded and stained glass windows have been enveloped in sealed window panes. The estate-sized lot is over an acre in size with magnificent heirloom plantings. At the back of the lot is Tea house matching the homes brick and barrel tile roof construction, double doors open to reveal a quaint fireplace. The garage is a 2 plus, one bay being a tandem can accommodate a third vehicle. If you feel there is potential for you to be the next custodian of what is quite literally the Biltmore Estate of Central Wisconsin, you are cordially invited to schedule your private showing.
