Property Description

The Homer E. McMasters House - the house that coffee built - is on the market . Built in 1925, McMaster -who managed the Ohio Valley Coffee Company - employed the design-build firm Anderson & Veatch to create an interpretation of an Elizabethan manor house from the English countryside. Hallmarks of the Tudor style, inspired by English manor houses, the home features a prominent front gable, asymmetrical facade of textured shale brick, yet balanced with large casement windows, ball-caste eaves, and a massive front chimney. Forgoing limestone window casings and lintels gives the home a look the goes well with current day brick homes. A timeless piece of architecture. On the inside, the impressive foyer and stairway greets you - with beautiful tile - much the same way as a modern day traditional build, and this extends to the floor plan as well. The large 3 bedrooms upstairs and living rooms down work well for today’s home living. Cook on the 5 burner KitchenAid cook top. Frolic pets in the back yard. Entertain well in a large formal dining room with French doors or the massive front room. Or don’t entertain at all - read a cozy book by the fireplace mantel that reaches over 8 feet in length. Or read a book beneath a shade tree in the beautiful Bayard Park across the street. Get a book from the Carnegie Library - across the street - that also overlooks the park. And don’t worry about storage, a full basement and walk-up attic with insulation are ready to give you the utility you need from a home today - with the style and grace of Anderson & Veatch circa 1925. The Bayard Park neighborhood is a go-to neighborhood for both the rising urban living in Evansville and an abundance of Tudor homes and architectural styles from the turn of the 20th century into the 1920s and 1930s. See today, because this old house shouldn't be on the market for long.
