The Jones House was built for prominent Boise attorney Thomas Jones and his wife, Winifred way back in 1893. Today, there is no doubt that this house is a treasure to the city of Boise. In fact, that's why Idaho native and preservationist Frank Ed knew he had to save and protect it.
Ed purchased the home and made it his mission to restore the house to it's original turn-of-the-century charm. The house is decorated with Victorian style wallpapers from top to bottom, magnificent old artwork, family heirlooms and old Idaho antiques. You would believe that everything has remained the same in this house for 120 years.
The house features 3 bedrooms and 2 baths and a beautiful garden that is the front yard. With it's rich history and well-persevered interior and exterior, this home is surely going to attract a specific kind of buyer - one who appreciates history and also one who can pay $1,000,050 for it.
