Blackford's Grove was a shade filled, pasture farm that stretched all the way to Garvin Street from Parrett, between Washington Avenue and Powell. During the Civil War, the land served as a camp for refugees who had fled from their homes in the midst of battle. After the war was over, and slavery abolished, the area was platted and developed. In 1890, Mary Ferguson, part of the successful Ferguson rail road contracting family, oversaw the construction of this glorious Victorian home in the Queen Anne style at the corner of Washington Avenue and 6th Street. By 1895, the home was owned by local real estate mogul Elder C. Cooper, of the Cooper & McDonald real estate and fire insurance agency. Today, the home was recently the headquarters of Sixth Street Soapery and the boutique Sixth & Zero, and is currently zoned for residence and business usage. The home is striking in its presence from the street - home to First Friday food trucks and buzzing with activity during Front Porch Fest. From the front walk, there are two entrances, and one massive front porch. The entrance draws your eye upwards, and passes through to a large formal dining room with original built-ins, an exquisite remodeled kitchen from 2013, and around to the first floor's half bath and two parlor rooms with ample bay windows, massive window casings, window rooms, fireplaces with original mantels, pocket doors, tall transom windows - all the jaw dropping architectural details you'd hope to have on hand when your friends stop over to your new house. Upstairs, the stairwell walks out to a covered second story front porch and up to the finished 3rd floor. Three bedrooms round out the second floor, with fireplaces and mantels, tower rooms and archways, curved plaster walls, and a double vanity bathroom with clawfoot tub - next to a large laundry room for 21st century expectations. On the 3rd floor, a full guest suite awaits with 4th bedroom capability and a full bathroom and kitchen - ready to be that huge wet bar bonus room, a finished basement in the sky, or an expansive in-unit AirBnB stay. With two back porches, a large paver patio, and two car detached garage, the picture is complete. With recent updates throughout, this old house is ready to be a new home for generations to come. The energy here is unmistakable. Here's hoping that it will be yours to enjoy.
