The Hugh Jones Mansion, circa 1898, lies in a small but distinctive Historic District in the city of Dodgeville, just two blocks to Wisconsin's oldest courthouse and everything the downtown area has to offer. Built for both style and function, this impressive home illustrates its timeless Queen Anne detail at every opportunity.
One step into the foyer proves that the home s interior is just as carefully crafted as its ornate facade. A dramatic staircase leads to four large bedrooms and two full baths: one completely updated with a tiled walk-in shower, the other with a jetted tub. Ceilings on the main level tower at over nine feet tall, and the solid twelve-panel doors represent the superior craftsmanship throughout. Though the home has been kept up-to-date with building codes and the modern lifestyle, many original details still grace the home today. Natural light streams through intricate leaded glass windows and gleams off the parquet floors. While seven layers of wallpaper have been replaced with a tasteful paint palette, a hand-carved mantle rests above the original wood-burning fireplace adorned with Italian tile.
French doors open the front parlor to the family room, and functional pocket doors connect the family room and dining room for a seamless entertaining space. Tucked behind the dining room is a quaint back staircase, a relic of the era. The eat-in kitchen is updated with stainless appliances, though its charming tin ceiling remains. A two-story turret provides a sun-soaked sitting area for both the parlor and the master bedroom upstairs. Curved glass windows showcase a gorgeous Neogothic Revival church across Main Street, another member of the Strong-Jones Historic District.
Designated as a City Historic Structure in 1997, this stately home sits on nearly a half-acre of mature trees and perennials. A detached garage accompanies the home, while the double lot yard offers plenty of space for expansion. A covered back porch off the kitchen provides quick access to the backyard for alfresco dining beneath the gazebo of the brick patio. Bilco doors make it easy to store outdoor toys and furniture in the basement, once piled high with coal. There's so much to discover that it s easy to forget about the massive walk-up attic, capable of housing entire generations of family memorabilia.
