Price Improvement!  Welcome Home to one of St. Elmo's oldest historic Victorian homes.  The ''Sissons House'', resides on 1.38 +/- acres at 113 Ochs Highway.  Built in 1884, one year before St. Elmo was incorporated, and within a decade that Bessie Smith was born and the Walnut Street Bridge was built, makes this gem of a home a one of a kind opportunity presenting itself formally to the market.  The Sissons House is sitting on one of the most desirable locations in all of St. Elmo.  Located within a few minutes walk of St. Elmo's thriving business center, still it offers a quiet privacy provided by the mature flora and fauna on its grounds, including oaks, magnolia trees, Japanese maples, redbuds, dogwoods and fruit trees. It's difficult to overstate how incredible of an opportunity it is to be the next proprietor of this charming home.  

The Sissons House takes us back in time 135 years to a period of craftsmanship that is unparalleled in today's modern construction. A sampling of the original features include 11' high ceilings, historic trim and moulding, four working gas fireplaces, a wrap around wooden porch, french window doors, wood floors, interior transom windows, and hand painted porcelain sconces.  The Sissons House is breathtaking and unique in every way.  

Built as a summer residence, the home's original layout featured a dogtrot which functioned as an open air breezeway for the historic proprietors' pets and family to pass through the heart of the home to the outdoor kitchen.  Today, this dogtrot presents as an enclosed and enlarged hallway that highlights the detailed trim work of the original soaring arches. The Sissons House showcases a wooden wrap around covered porch with restored and original wooden Victorian corbels lining its entirety.  

A formal parlor is secured by large internal double doors. The french door windows provide sun-kissed natural light and an original mantel framing a see-through gas fireplace that peaks into the kitchen. All of the four working gas fireplaces provide ambience and auxiliary heat for the cooler months of the year. This truly exceptional parlor room provides the perfect space for welcoming guests into the comfortable and inviting home.

The cafe-styled kitchen features a bay window providing a cozy eat-in breakfast nook, a free-standing gas range, 3 bay stainless steel sink with sprayer, a large island work station and pantry.  The french door windows flow onto the private garden patio with a delightful amount of privacy provided by the crepe myrtle canopy. The formal dining room features original built-in cabinetry shelving from floor to ceiling with abounding room to host sophisticated cocktail hours and dinner parties.

The Sissons House thoughtfully provides two master bedrooms with full master ensuites.  The first, with its own private access to the garden patio and a unique finished lofted attic space, could be used for additional storage or for an adorable children's playroom. The ensuite bathroom features original hand-painted porcelain sconces, and a private clawfoot bathtub as well as stand-up shower.  

The main master bedroom features one of the four original fireplace mantels and unique built in bookshelves serving as a floor to ceiling headboard for the king-sized bed.  The ensuite has recently been thoughtfully renovated to include a laundry room, private tiled shower, double sinks, linen closet, and a separated water closet. 

The additional bedroom has its own closet system with sliding wooden doors and an additional storage space with roughed in plumbing and electric to include an optional build out of an ensuite bathroom. 

The grounds showcase a timber-framed studio space with hand-milled beams harvested near Nashville.  The current proprietor of the property performed a "barn-raising" for this special studio and centered it around the historic brick chimney, originally serving the property as the outdoor kitchen stove.  This space is ready to be finalized with windows (already purchased and waiting for installation) and personal decorative touches from it's next proprietor. 

Remnants of the property's spring well, cistern, and former horse-drawn carriage pathway are still on the property telling the story of St. Elmo's unique history.   

The current proprietor has focused over the last several years to protect the historical dignity and structural integrity of the Sissons House.  Newer renovations include: New roof & repair and replacement to wrap around front porch decking (April, 2019) $26K+, HVAC (2014) & duct work (2018), $18K+ in crawl space moisture management (2018 & 2019), updated electric (2019), renovation of master ensuite & laundry room (2017), and new exterior paint (2019).  All work has been performed with approved permits and is in compliance with the Historic Zoning Commission.

Imagine sipping mimosas while lounging on the wrap-around front porch or garden patio, enjoying the birds and butterflies residing in the variety of mature landscaping throughout the grounds, all the while nestled into the privacy offered from the 1.38 +/- acre lot that is still within walking distance of St. Elmo's favorite haunts and local eateries.  Every original feature of the Sissons House and its grounds work together to make it superior to any other home in St. Elmo.  In short, the Sissons House is so rare, so unique, and so special because it offers the opportunity to reside in a piece of history.  Let's just say, the Sissons house may never enter the market again in our lifetime.
