MAK Home - 338 Adams
The original design of 338 Adams remains significantly intact. The exterior details of Wilburn’s design, including the heavy granite piers and decorative fluted columns, continue to give the home a “strong and durable front”.
Leaded glass sidelights flank the front door and matching leaded glass transoms are over the top of the entry and living room window. The living and dining rooms have coffered beam ceilings and plate rails. 338 Adams has six original tiled fireplaces. The dining room has an original stained glass window. The current owners have worked diligently to restore the home’s original features by repairing and replacing wood trim and windows to match the home’s original design.
Because of a fire on the 2nd floor of the home in the 1930s, some of the original fixtures and finishes to the home were updated in that decade. The home’s staircase still has staining from embers of that fire.
The original back porch has been enclosed to provide for an expanded kitchen and a new back porch has been added. Upstairs, the sleeping porch has been enclosed and renovated to provide for a master bathroom.
The current owners have lived in the home for almost 30 years; they purchased the home from the Nunnally family, who lived at 338 Adams for 50 years.
