MAK Home - 356 Adams
The original design of this Colonial-style home, built in 1918, remains substantially intact. Both interior and exterior details of Wilburn’s design are evident.
The interior of the home provides an open floor plan with ceiling heights of 10 feet on the first floor. Wilburn’s design provided for only three primary rooms, living room, dining room and kitchen, to occupy its first floor. The expanse of the living room provides views to both the front and back yards through opposing banks of windows.
356 Adams still has much of its original detail including, window seating at each of the two front bay windows, inlaid oak flooring and brick fireplace. The home also has original lighting fixtures, stairway railings, newel posts and French doors between the entryway and stair hall.
The only changes to the original floor plan are at the back of the house, where prior owners removed the breakfast room and pantry in the kitchen to allow for the addition of a second full bathroom. The renovation also removed the back of the camel-back staircase to allow for more storage area in the kitchen.
356 Adams is currently a 4-bedroom, 2-bath home with approximately 2,600 square feet of living area.
