A highly visible part of Ashland's architectural heritage, this Italianate style home was built adjacent to the downtown commercial district in 1890 for Kate Grainger and G.M. Grainger, a two term Ashland mayor, who oversaw significant community growth including the construction of City Hall. When building was completed by architect W.J. Schmidt the home was called one of the prettiest cottages in town by the Ashland Tidings. The main house has two levels and features 3 beds and 3 baths with 10' ceilings throughout. The attached guest studio is single level and includes 1 bed and 1 bath. Stylistically unique in the neighborhood with a two story bay with turret and a curved veranda the home is in great condition having maintained the original period details including Fir flooring, wood paneling, and 10'' baseboards with molding. Newer updates include a spacious tile patio, two separate 2-car garages, and a modern foundation. The oversize .46 acre R-1-7.5 has the potential to split.
