The ”Handsomest Residence In Hastings” as it was known in 1885 when Daniel Striker built this Queen Anne asymmetrical style house.
Visiting Hastings Michigan this summer, my eye caught this beauty, It was located near the charming downtown and was definitely a step back in time.
It was recently listed for sale….my opportunity to tour…Virtually of course.
This extravagant home offers 3 fireplaces, turreted tower, quarter sawn oak & butternut ornate woodwork.
The magnificent hardwood staircase is absolutely stunning. Hardwood floors throughout the home with custom design features in the dining room. An open floor plan that can easily be changed to offer privacy with many hardwood pocket doors.
Nearly all of the furnishings are from the original time period of the home (most of the furnishing are included)
Daniel Striker constructed this house in the 1880s;.
He lived there until his death in 1898. Striker’s wife Sarah lived in the house until her death in 1915.
After that, the house was used as the second home for Hastings’ first hospital, then known as Good Samaritan.. In the 1960s, it was converted into apartments and became a convalescent home..
It was later refurbished into a single-family home
The Daniel Striker House has 4,106 square feet.
There are 5 bedrooms and 2 baths.
This home recently sold. A new family can now say they live in the “handsomeness house in Hastings.’’
