An enchanting Sikeston treasure can be your new home! This Victorian masterpiece, built in 1880, had as its first occupant John Sikes for whom the town of Sikeston is named for. A brick walkway from the street leads to this grand two-story home which greets its visitors with a full covered porch curving around both sides of the home. The hanging porch swing will remain for its next occupants to enjoy. Entering the home leads to its ample spaced foyer. In fact, you will find all the rooms of this home grand in size. To the right, take note of the staircase leading to the second floor. Beneath the staircase is the main level half bath. Plenty of head room here as the home has high ceilings on both levels. To the left, separated by distinctive columns, is the main level family room with a grand chandelier. Three large floor to ceiling windows in a bay window design show off the view of the front yard. Continuing forward from the foyer leads into the spacious formal dining room. Here you will notice another gleaming chandelier, moldings throughout, and a vintage fireplace that has been converted to handy gas. Three large floor to ceiling windows take in the view of the side yard dotted with several large shade trees. Plenty of room for holiday parties here. To the rear of the home is the lovely, updated kitchen. The bright kitchen features white cabinetry, white subway style tile backsplash, a pantry which has a swing out door revealing more storage to the rear, tile flooring, and is accented with black appliances. Need more storage space? Directly off the kitchen is a large butler’s pantry with lower-level cabinets and drawers and above shelving. Built-in shelving accents each side of the window in this room. There is also a bedroom on the main level that could serve as the master. This bedroom is connected to the living room and to a short hall leading to the kitchen. The bedroom has two of the three large windows but in place of the third window is a door leading to the covered porch. This main level bedroom’s full bath boast charm with its tub/shower combination. There are two stairways leading to the second level. One is found in the rear of the home off the main level laundry room (off the kitchen) and second is the grand stairway off the front foyer. The grand stairway leads to a landing area complete with a wet bar. On this level is a second family room. This room also has the three large, angled windows viewing the front yard and beyond, crown moldings, and a vintage light fixture. A door off this family room enters the second-floor master bedroom also with the three large windows. This spacious bedroom has two closets, its own screened in covered porch, and an updated master bath with a corner glass walk-in shower and beautiful accented tile flooring. Connected to the master bath and the hallway is a smaller room with two windows (closet could be added) that’s current use is as a quaint dressing area but would work nice a nursery, office, play area, etc. The hallway is abundantly wide on this second level. Off this hallway is a generous sized bedroom with the three large windows. Also, off the hallway is a full updated bathroom with a tub/shower combination (peek inside to notice the tile work). A spacious attic is found above with plenty of head room, storage space, and has lighting, electric. The partial basement also provides storage. As if the house itself did not boast enough southern charm, the manicured corner lot does as well. Numerous large shade trees, bushes, flowers accent the grounds. The utility shed will remain and there is a concrete pad beside it. The home's exterior has been completely painted within the last year. Plan to stay awhile at this once in a lifetime home as there is much character to take in.
