521 GRANT STREET - This splendid 1906 Geo. W. Maher Prairie Style residence is an ideal choice for those with a passion for Arts and Crafts who want to live in an extraordinary, downtown setting. The spectacular main floor has an open plan perfect for entertaining. Each of the 5 bedrooms on the 2nd floor has a private bathroom. A spacious 3rd floor suite has a kitchen, living/dining area, bedroom, bathroom, and outdoor deck. The style of the separate carriage house matches the residence.,In 1905 Wausau lumberman Hiram C. Stewart engaged Chicago architect Geo. W. Maher to design this Prairie Style mansion for his family. They lived here until moving to Pasadena, California in 1914, turning the house over to Louis Desert, a businessman from nearby Mosinee. Mr. Desert gave the use of the house to his daughter, who resided in the unchanged house until her death in 1962. Since then, the house has had owners sensitive to its historical value. In 1974, the Stewart House became the first property in Wausau to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The house is considered among the most intact of Maher?s several hundred residential designs, including original art glass windows and doors, light fixtures, fireplaces, built-ins, woodwork, and hardware. The house is well-documented with original blueprints of approval and construction drawings (embossed with Maher?s stamp), typed specifications for masonry, plaster, and carpentry work, and a lengthy millwork list. In 2015 the current owners commissioned a detailed inventory and evaluation of 60 decorative art objects the architect designed for the house. The Stewart House is located in Wausau?s Andrew Warren Historic District. The three-story, 9000-square foot (including basement) building and its matching two-story carriage house sit on a 0.40-acre parcel on the south side of Grant Street. The buildings are extremely well-constructed of durable materials, have robust mechanical systems, and are complemented by native plants and attractive landscaping. Porches, a veranda, and a large patio with fountain encourage outdoor relaxation. There is ample off-street parking on the property. The mansion itself is an Arts and Crafts masterpiece, considered one of the best examples of the architect?s ?motif-rhythm? theory in which a geometric shape and a local plant were selected as inspiration for a building?s architectural details. The Stewart House motifs are the tripartite arch and the tulip. This building was among the first of Maher's designs to have the main entrance on one end, eliminating the central hallway and allowing the social rooms on the first floor (reception room, drawing room, dining room, foyer, and library) to be open to each other. The architectural details in this part of the house are absolutely stunning, a tribute to Maher?s design and the craftspeople who carried it out in natural materials. Five of the bedrooms are on the second floor, accessed from an L-shaped hallway that also serves as an art gallery. All bedrooms have modern comfort and convenience features, including private baths with original sinks and modern steam spas. The original servants? side of the house now comprise a third-floor suit with private outdoor deck, a first floor kitchen and butler?s pantry, and a basement laundry room, all connected by a private staircase. The 1500-square foot suite is sunny and spacious with views of downtown, Rib Mountain, and East Hill. It has an eat-in kitchen with cabinets like others in the house; a large living/dining area with fireplace and the original ballroom piano; a king-size bedroom including walk-in closet, built-in bookshelves, cabinets and vanity; and a bathroom with adjacent dressing area. The carriage house is 24 by 30 feet and has the same external finish as the mansion, coarse gray stucco over metal lath. The first floor, now used as a garage and to store yard equipment, once housed two horses and a p
