MAK Home - 326 Adams
326 Adams was constructed between 1910-1912. The home is distinguished by a pair of rounded stained glass windows in its gables as well as the “massive porch columns, with ornamental caps” at each corner of the front porch. Original leaded glass sidelights around the front door have a graceful flower motif.
In 2003, 326 Adams was purchased from an owner who had lived in the home for about 30 years. The new owner restored and renovated the home, but was careful to preserve its period detail. In 2006 the home was purchased by the current owners.
326 Adams maintains much of its original detail, including oak floors with perimeter inlays, both sets of pocket doors between the living room and the parlor and dining room, six fireplaces and double swinging doors with leaded glass which conceal the stairway.
Major changes on the main floor are at the rear of the house, where the back porch was incorporated into a renovated kitchen and original heart pine floors were uncovered and refinished. The kitchen still has the pass-through butler’s pantry with built-in china cabinet. Upstairs, changes include the conversion of a part of a bedroom’s space into a master bath and walk-in closet.
326 Adams is currently a 4-bedroom, 2½ bath house with approximately 2,400 square feet of living space.
