Step back in time and imagine yourself living in one of Marquette’s most prominent and historically exquisite homes. Make your own history by owning the first home in Marquette to be listed n the National Register of Historic Places in 1971. The original “Call Home” is being offered for your consideration for your pristine Marquette Bed & Breakfast, a high end rental home or just for you….. a place for you to live and enjoy your Marquette life and everything it has to offer. This truly remarkable home has seen many faces throughout history; Carl Struck, the original builder who built the home for Henry Mather, the first President of the Cleveland Iron Mining Company. The home was later occupied by the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice George Shiras Jr. This home is the outstanding example of Gothic Revival Architecture. Everyone who has driven down E Ridge Street or spent time at the Ellwood Mattson Lower Harbor Park has looked up and said “WOW” as you see the tall, peaked roofline or the floor to ceiling windows. Maybe it’s the Grand Hotel feel of the back veranda? As you enter the home from the winding stamped concrete sidewalks you can’t help but notice the tall, arched doorway typical of this era home as well as the black walnut woodwork throughout; from the 8’ solid doors and archways, crown molding and the truly unique beaded archway between the living and dining room, I promise that you’ve never seen anything like this! The kitchen is truly remarkable and tasteful, from the beautiful cabinetry and granite counters, built in high end appliances and oh the views! The owners have taken great pride and indulgence in keeping true to the era of the home while capturing today’s conveniences. Four fireplaces total in the home, (dining room, family room, bedroom and mother in law suite) all of them with their own touch of renaissance; beautiful and articulate tile work, soap stone hearth and the mantles perfect for anyone’s Christmas stockings. All of the flooring in the home is original maple or oak hardwood flooring, impeccably preserved and maintained. The Grand staircase leading you to the bedrooms on the second level of the home; the bedrooms are spacious and luxurious boasting large closets, built in book shelves, and again the tall windows with the gorgeous views of our beautiful Lake Superior. The grounds of the home couldn’t be more pristine and the owners have taken excellent care in establishing & caring for the numerous perennial beds, herb gardens and fruit trees. These also provide wonderful habitat for our feathered friends and you’ll enjoy the songs of the cardinals, finches and numerous others. This home also features an attached but separate mother in law suite or apartment with kitchen, dining room, living room with fireplace and on the second level a full bathroom and 2 bedrooms; the master with the same spectacular views. Beginning to end, top to bottom, inside and outside this home is TRULY one of a kind.
