Architectural and Historical Information
The historic C.W. and Lucille Beasley House is a brick bungalow that needs mostly cosmetic updating. The house was built for C.W. and Lucille Beasley in 1925 and has remained in the family since. It features 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, beautiful hardwood floors throughout, an original majolica tile bath upstairs, large fenced in yard, and wide wraparound front porch.
Interior features include a built-in banquet in the eat-in kitchen, built-in cabinets in the butler’s pantry, interior columns, arched hallways, operable transoms over some interior doors, unique mantel and dog-leg stairs with attractive square newel post with simple square balustrade. There is central heat and air downstairs but none currently upstairs. The den was added in the 1950’s and features a gas log fireplace, built-in bookcases, and pine paneling. The house will need plaster repair and cosmetic updates, but is currently livable.
