Property Description

U.S. Marine Hospital is a wonderful historic edifice just waiting for restoration or reuse as single family home, corporate retreat etc. The original "U.S. Marine Hospital" sign is still above the front entrance. Magnificent detailed metal stair case winds from the basement up to the belvedere which offers fantastic views of the city and surrounding farms. The upper floors offer large rooms, the largest of the upper three rooms measures approximately 17 X 32 feet and the ceilings are 12 to 14 feet high. Doors and windows are immense with a 4' x 9' foot front door. The quality of the construction was second to none. The hospital sits on mostly wooded acres with many black walnut and other trees. There is a beautiful extremely old white oak tree on the grounds that measures over twelve feet in diameter. There are two partial stone foundations on the grounds, one of which may be from an admitting building, as it is down by the river where the steamboats docked. All of the non supporting walls have been removed from the upper floors leaving four large rooms on each floor, not including very large hallways. All walls in the basement, or first floor are still present. This floor includes the kitchen, laundry room, vegetable storage room, the furnace room, family dining room, 1/2 bath, and closet as well as a hallway. All of the original plumbing fixtures have been removed. The basement is heated by an oil fired boiler and baseboard units. Some of the windows have been replaced, others need repair or replacement. No windows are included in the belvedere. These will be large measuring 4 x 8 feet. The porches have been removed, but the original stone footings are still on the property. Original moulding and trim are still present. The original staircase is mostly intact. A new well was drilled in 1996. Several fireplaces/wood burning stoves are located throughout. Square footage is an approximation and includes all three levels.
