Over the course of its nearly 120 year history, the home located at 422 North Baylen Street was built as the private residence for the Thomas W. Brent, Jr. family in 1904. It has also been a hotel, a bed-and-breakfast, an advertising agency, and many more. Considered architecturally significant in Pensacola, this home has been featured in Southern Living Magazine. The house construction initiated in 1902 by Steamboat Captain James M. Flynn and was completed around 1904 when the Brent family moved in. While this home has served many roles throughout its history, many of the charming historic details remain intact today. This includes the ornate wooden staircase in the foyer, 7 original fireplaces with hand carved wooden mantels, as well as 11 stained glass windows throughout the house. Located in the North Hill Preservation District, this home exhibits all the qualities one would expect from a turn-of-the-century Victorian. Beautiful spacious porches on the first and second floors of this 2 ½ story home, gorgeous hardwood floor and exquisite hardwood trim, and grand high ceilings throughout. The home has several large (8’ wide opening) pocket doors that allow for an open flowing floor plan. In recent years, it was setup as a business with all the network wiring, ADA, and fire/security alarm systems to be compliant with commercial building codes. Over the last couple of years, the home has been a single family residence and could easily be a four to six room Bed and Breakfast business, as well as other business configurations. Recent upgrades include 2 new energy efficient 4-ton heat pumps inside and out, replacement of most of the cast iron piping, porch roof repairs, and stained glass window repairs. Some updates have been done to a few of the 4 full and 2 half bathrooms, keeping quaint features expected in this beautiful Victorian. This home is just waiting for the next chapter to be added to its century-long story.
