The Edward H. Young residence is Evansville's most striking example of Harris & Shopbell's rendition of the Shingle Style of architecture. Constructed in 1908, the residence of more than 2,300 sq feet completes the architectural heritage of Bayard Park with its wood shingle exterior and eaves scored with jig sawn brackets. Edward H. Young was noted as being the vice president and manager of the William H. Small Hay & Grain Company. His residence has a large reception hall welcomes guests with an incredible original built in, followed by a beamed ceiling dining room with chair railing, and an original wall to wall built in featuring leaded glass doors and fireplace in the formal parlor. As with many Shopbell designs, the floor plan offers an entertainment space on the first level, with the living areas, including all 4 bedrooms, on the second floor up the original carved staircase. The largely in-tact original floor plan only features a slight change of a butler's pantry to a bathroom for convenience of guests on the first floor. The views of Historic Bayard Park, notably from the second floor bedrooms, are those you see only in magazines. The residence has been carefully updated to create an alluring mixture of historic charm and modern conveniences. The kitchen features new appliances, flooring, and counters. This once in a lifetime historic residence in an idyllic setting is ready for a new exceptional owner today.
