Own a piece of Troy history! This prestigious home on the hill was a wedding gift to Marcia Hobart Howell in the 1940's and has the original circus themed hand paintings on the basement walls. It is a totally poured concrete home and built to last! Enter into this magnificent but comfortable home to an open foyer with original iron curved staircase to the huge bedrooms and sewing room upstairs including the master with original hand painted wallpaper in the dressing room. On the first floor is the front to back family room with decorative fireplace and parquet flooring, a dining or sitting room with a beautiful view to the back, remodeled eat-in kitchen with new appliances, cherry cabinets, heated tile floors, and quartz countertops, and a stunning library/den/office with wall to wall bookcases and inviting fireplace. Updates include kitchen, master bath, windows, stairs to attic, boiler and roof in 1999. This is a grand but warm home and you truly must experience it to appreciate it!
