Built in 1884 by Colonel J.W. Paxton of Wheeling, WV, the Paxton House was one of Thomasville’s early winter Residence during the area’s famed “Hotel Era.” The home features classic Victorian styling, complete with turret and ornate gingerbread millwork.
The interior space of the main residence is a testament to the masterful craftsmanship of the era. A tightly curved stairwell greets you upon entering the foyer. Thirteen-foot ceilings adorned with layered crown moldings contribute to the expansive feel of the home. Nine-foot doors, transoms and original windows distribute light throughout the interior of the house. Other details include original heart pine floors, twelve fireplaces with original mantles, and a unique “Courting” window, allowing a glimpse down the sweeping stairway. All told, the main house has six bedrooms, six baths, a formal parlor, and dining room, breakfast room, kitchen, sunroom, den, and a study. Expansive wrap-around porches and gazebos provide wonderful areas for outdoor entertaining, while a gracious sunroom brings the outside in for year round enjoyment. Professional landscaping and outdoor lighting with winding pathways invite you to explore the grounds where you will you discover 3 additional structures. The Carriage House has been completely remodeled to include a large bedroom with a bath, kitchenette, and attractive front porch. The Pool House features an enclosed resistance pool, as well as a hot tub and private bath. Adjoining the pool is a private bedroom and full bath. The most prominent of the structures is the Garden Cottage. Like the other houses, great attention has been paid to the architectural detailing which allow it to blend in seamlessly with the main residence. The interior offers a large living area with working fireplace, kitchen, four bedrooms and four baths. The Paxton House has been awarded the AAA 4-Diamond Bed & Breakfast rating award.
