This historical home in St. Marys is perched on a hilltop on the corner of Church Street, North and Widder Street, East and has played an integral role in the architectural history of the town.
The Sclater residence, built in 1904 in the regal Queen Anne Revival style, was home to James Sclater. He was a Scottish immigrant and stone mason who owned and operated a prosperous lime works in town. Mr. Sclater was involved in the building of both the limestone St. Marys Presbyterian Church across the road, as well as the local Carnegie library.
Additionally, both architecturally significant as well as having local cultural value, this well preserved house features stunning details not found in the architecture of today. Moreover, from the exterior, the most stunning feature off the house is the wrap-around covered verandah. This allows for glorious views both east and south. A second floor balcony faces southwest. Similarly, the interior of the home flows beautifully, with work done over the years that retains and celebrates the original finish with a nod to the needs of today’s families.
Equally important, the front hallway boasts a grand oak staircase beautifully preserved in true Queen Anne style, complete with wood panelling and stained glass window.
Furthermore, multiple upgrades have been completed over the past 12 years, including electrical, plumbing, and the kitchen. Likewise the bathrooms were updated and the roof was replaced with fiberglass shingles. Several windows were also updated. Homes like this don’t come along very often.
