From the Zillow listing:


Welcome to the iconic Ward McGinnis House, a well-preserved piece of Eureka’s rich history. This prestigious Tudor-style home is loaded with noble characteristics. Meticulously built in 1929, it features over 4,000 square feet of quality craftmanship. It remains heavily accented with original detail, including beautiful hardwood floors, gorgeous trim and molding, solid-iron fixtures and 2 fireplaces, while also boasting a nice touch of modern updates including granite countertops in the kitchen and an Inground Pool in the backyard. The master bedroom is 20×25 and includes his/her closets, a master bath and an attached 12×16 separate office or hobby room. The upper level also provides two additional large bedrooms and a servant’s quarters built above the garage with its own living room, bedroom, laundry and bathroom. The main level offers a 15×31 living room with original fireplace and built-ins, a 13×20 formal dining room (dining room furniture was designed by the original architect and stays with the home), a 12×17 lounge area with built-in wet-bar, and a well-appointed kitchen. The full basement offers even more living space with a large family/rec room, a full bath (with a steam shower) and additional storage space. Did I mention there are 4.5 Total Baths in this home? Very efficient home for its age due to the wall thickness. Dual central air-conditioning units and boiler system for heat. Class 4 Architectural Metal Roof with EPDM on the flat portions. Located on an over half-acre corner lot. ALL OF THIS PLUS SO MUCH MORE!!
