An intimate and gracious home-the Daniels-Stenhouse is located two blocks from downtown Goldsboro with brick sidewalks-historic lighting-benches and extensive landscaping. Neighboring homes circa 1870 - 1920 in the nationally certified historic district are single family residences that have been restored and are well maintained. The last owner-Dr. Stenhouse ran for Congress when he was over one-hundred years old and appeared on the Johnny Carson show. The original exterior of the 1888 Victorian gem with wrap-around porch displays a copper metal roof-wood siding painted gray with violet-copper and ivory trim. Over sixty antique glass windows-hand-stripped entry doors and natural fish scale trim showcase the restoration. The home was completed in 2001 by Grandpas Children Inc. under the direction of American Indian restoration specialist Dreamweaver. It was his first project training at-risk youth in museum quality restoration which strictly adheres to protecting the original structure and materials.The Plum Tree Gallery which was also restored by Dreamweaver and designed/furnished by Joanne Lesak is found with a full lot devoted to gardens across the street. The Gallery may provide additional rooms with private adjoining baths when all the rooms at Plum Tree Gardens have been reserved. All rooms have incorporated hand-painted faux finish walls. They feature an extensive collection of fine art paintings by American Indian watercolorist Dreamweaver. Artist Joanne Lesak specializes in large scale contemporary acrylics. The eclectic blend from antique to contemporary furnishings includes Indian pieces from Guatemala.The aroma of fresh coffee and a variety basket of homemade muffins will beckon guests to a three course gourmet breakfast served in front of the five-window bay of the formal dining room. 3 days advanced notice needed for gourmet breakfast.
