The Mahoney House is a stunning white 1905-08 Victorian, timeless in its elegance and character. This historic gem on the summit of Bonners Ferry's South Hill offers commanding views of downtown Bonners Ferry, surrounding mountains and the Kootenai River. The main floor features natural lighting, high ceilings, and original wood floors, in an open kitchen, large living room, and formal dining room with an elegant decorative tin ceiling. Relax on the covered half circle veranda, complete with doric pillars. Upstairs are four generously sized bedrooms, a bathroom complete with a clawfoot cast iron tub, built in storage, and a private, fenced balcony. Above the bedrooms is a spacious, finished attic, perfect for a game room, movie room, reading library, or quiet escape. The finished basement (excepting the root cellar) has exterior and interior access to a large laundry room, as well as a fifth bedroom and second bathroom. The yard is fully enclosed by a picturesque white picket fence. Above the bedrooms is a spacious, finished attic, which would be perfect for a game room, movie room, a reading library, or a quiet escape. The basement, excepting the root cellar, is finished as well, with a large laundry room, as well as a fifth bedroom and a second bathroom. As the basement has its own separate entrance, the basement bedroom and bathroom could easily be sectioned off into its own private living space. Outside, the classic wood siding and trim work compliment the covered half circle veranda, complete with doric pillars. The yard is fully enclosed by a picturesque white picket fence, with solar powered LED landscape lighting on every post, and features two mature apple trees. The recently added 12 by 16 shed is built onto the hillside, so that no yard is sacrificed. Four off-street parking spaces are available, one of which is covered by a detached garage. It is rare that houses of this style, character, and history become available, and rarer still for one to become available at so reasonable a price. Make it yours, before history passes you by.
