Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: John & Kerry-Lynn bought the Historic Yellow House in 2012 and gutted it to the studs. They were excited to save and restore this fantastic piece of Williams rich history. John is a retired Fire Fighter/ Paramedic, Kerry-Lynn is a professional musician. Kerry-Lynn is a 4th generation Arizona native and has been happy to spearhead the project while John enjoys working as a support member of the Williams Volunteer Fire Department.
Why the Owner Chose Williams, AZ, USA:
The Historic Yellow House was owned by the same family for 93 years! Before that, it served as the bunkhouse and supervisor's office for the Saginaw & Manistee Lumber Mill. The rich history of the home and the area were fascinating. After years of watching the beautiful property fall into disrepair, we decided we had to do something. We carefully dis-assembled the entire property and saved everything historic that we could. Re-claimed wood, original floors and amazing stonework still remain. The yard continues to improve and based on historic photos will be restored soon. Artifacts and photos abound in the home. Charm and comfort of a bygone era welcome guests. A perfect 'summer cottage' in a wonderful mountain community.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home is historic but the creature comforts are all fully modern! 800 thread count sheets, quality beds, comfortable chairs and reading nooks, fantastic kitchen, bright clean laundry room, fireplaces, original art, good books, games, tvs, Wi-Fi, grill, patios, gardens, fruit trees, off-street parking and the most convenient location in the middle of everything.
