Here is your chance to own a piece of Eau Claire history.
Built at the turn of the 20th century by Mr. and Mrs. Byron Buffington, this is one of Eau Claire's finest examples of Queen Anne architecture. In 1948 Mrs. Buffington willed her estate to the Episcopal Church to provide comfortable housing for older adults.
The home was left intact and never remodeled. It is a fine example of the luxury enjoyed by the wealthy lumber barons of years ago.
The home features 2030 square feet of living space on the main floor, and additional 2030 square feet on the second floor, about 300 square feet finished in the basement (with egress), and a 900 square foot ballroom on the 3rd floor, as was common for homes of this caliber.
The main level contains the living room, several sitting rooms, a formal dining room, kitchen, and two bathrooms.
The second level has five bedrooms and three bathrooms. A second-story sun porch connects two of the rooms at the rear of the house.
Outside, the lot is extra large. Trees and bushes along the lot lines help to seclude the property from the bustle of State St. and UW-Eau Claire, which is adjacent to the property.
There is also a 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom guest cottage on the property that could be used many different ways.
The current owners have a conditional use permit to operate the home as a museum. This home is priced below assessed value.
