1249 E Jefferson Boulevard, South Bend

Back on the market in 2020--make an offer! In 1902, this spectacular mansion was built on 1.3 acres of land sold to the Birdsells by the Studebakers. This is an especially rare opportunity to own a stunning historical property on Jefferson Blvd. that has been renovated on all 4 levels with exquisite taste true to its period. It's difficult to describe the endless details such as the intrinsic original moldings, built-ins & leaded glass throughout. Just under 8,000 sq. ft, the home includes 8 bedrooms, 3 full & 2 half baths, 7 fireplaces, 5 staircases, office, sunroom, main level bar, pantry room, basement game room, & wine cellar. In the past 4 years, there have been extensive renovations inside & out: kitchen, pantry room, breakfast room, bar, bathrooms, landscaping & hardscaping. The kitchen is truly gourmet, & all appliances are high-end including the 48" Wolf range & built-in Subzero refrigerator. Hardwood flooring throughout all three levels. The gorgeous paver patio is complete with pergola, fireplace, built-in grill, & pizza oven. Home is also accessible by driveway off Sunnyside. Qualified buyers, schedule a private showing to see & appreciate the quality and special features of this magnificent property. As this is a large home to fill, the furnishings are negotiable.
