Constructed in 1865 by one of the original city founders, Ward A. Jennings, the home was known as the "Jennings Mansion."
Considered the finest home ever constructed in Lapeer, it was moved in the late 1990s to its current site, where it sits on a modern 1990s block foundation, integrated with the original foundation’s "cut block stone" veneer. The home has had only three owners over the last 155 years and is truly a "trophy Estate".
A ready-to-occupy residential property with pre-approved B&B zoning, the estate is a magnificent example of mid-19th Century Victorian Italianate architecture. Nearly all of its original charm and vintage character have been retained throughout loving restoration of:
Italian ‘Black Marble’ hearth fireplace (a unique and very rare material)
Deep cut crown moldings
Inlay and parquet hardwood floors
Original hand-crafted staircase
Copper roof treatments
Custom millwork and construction with 2.5” x 6” framing
Elaborate hardware and original unpainted trim.
Caretaker’s suite perfect as innkeeper quarters.
Zoning allows for B&B operations
Current residential zoning classification will allow for a bed and breakfast, owner/occupant-operated. Potential for church/reception/wedding venue. Hobby vineyard, hobby stables.
Convenient rural Lapeer site
The estate is very private, occupying a commanding location at the end of a winding and gated private driveway lined with historically-inspired lamp posts. Although secluded and wooded, it is only one mile from Lapeer’s McLaren Hospital and only a half-mile off M-24.
Furnishings are negotiable.
