In honor of John C. Fremont Days coming up this weekend we have picked a beautiful home in the historic Barnard Park neighborhood. This beautiful, tree lined neighborhood is graced by luscious homes built in the late 1800’s to early 1900’s. They are full of architectural character and often feature ornate details we associate with the Victorian era. The home we are featuring this week has been meticulously maintained and tastefully updated, yet retains it’s period charm. Welcome to 649 E. 5th Street, Fremont, NE!
This home sits on the corner of the block. The grounds of this home have been beautifully landscaped and include this tranquil water feature.
Inside you are greeted with a beautiful stairway featuring a banister light that is so indicative of this architectural time period.
Beautiful metal vines wrap elegantly around the opalescent pink glass globe. Isn’t it divine?!
You will find plenty of space for both entertaining as well as relaxing with friends or family. Quiet nooks for intimate conversations or quiet contemplation.
The heart of the home, the kitchen, has been tastefully updated with the era of the home in mind. It has all the conveniences, yet feels natural with the flow of the rest of the house. Sliding glass doors to the backyard flood the space with natural light and offer peaceful vistas of the outdoor space.
This isn’t an older home with a tiny kitchen…there is plenty of space for all your kitchenware and small appliances.
Speaking of the outdoor space, take in the lush beauty of this private backyard area. As with the rest of the home, it is perfect for entertaining or rejuvenating. String some white lights and invite everyone over for a fun barbecue or simply sit with a cup of coffee in the morning (or wine in the evening) and relax in your own private oasis.
At the end of the day, retreat to your large, second floor master suite.
The master bath has been updated with modern tastes in mind but with subtle nods to past decor. It is a private retreat.
Don’t miss the silent stars of the home. The beautiful leaded glass and stained glass windows. They are mesmerizing!
This home has a total of 3 bedrooms and 3 baths and over 3,200 finished square feet as well as a 2 car detached garage. It’s a little piece of history and all it needs it you! Barb Orr has 649 E. 5th Street in Fremont, NE listed and she, or any of our professional Realtors, would love to schedule your private showing of this gorgeous property!
