This historic Stillwater home is ready for a full “renovation to suit.” Built in 1882 by August Newmann, an employee at the state prison just a few blocks away at the foot of Elm Street, the home is located on a lovely lot in the heart of the North Hill neighborhood. It features simple Italianate style; a refreshing exception to its extravagantly-adorned Victorian neighbors.
Two preliminary renovation design concepts by architect Ron Brenner are ready for review. Each design modernizes the family living space inside, while keeping the integrity of the home’s historic exterior. Nearly everything inside will be updated and replaced, including electrical and plumbing systems. The home is included in Stillwater’s Heirloom & Landmark Sites Program, a joint effort of the City of Stillwater and the Heritage Preservation Commission. City approvals will be required before construction begins. Potential $1M project.
