Jean Steinhardt's House Portraits

"Every house has a story ... A house portrait helps you tell it."


On Heights Blvd.

Classic Victorian in the Queen Anne style. Built in 1910, this historic deeded property was purchased by J. C. Stiel in 1911 and resold to J. C. Matthews in 1912.

This elegantly appointed home was lovingly restored by Chris and Nikki Thornton, owners of the home from 1997 until 2007. The Thornton's carefully maintained the home's historical integrity while incorporating modern upgrades and a two-story addition.

Features include a grand foyer, formal living/dining rooms, fabulous kitchen with tin ceiling, built-in banquette and a large great room. Some great turn-of-the-century features include: high ceilings, Victorian woodwork, a great front porch overlooking the Boulevard and an original star inlaid in the hardwood floor of the entrance hall. Modern touches include: a kitchen with stainless appliances, granite countertops and glass-front cabinets, a large master suite and an enormous "great room" with built-in cabinetry, a fireplace and French doors opening onto the deck and back yard for entertaining.
