The Givens house is a three-story Victorian in the heart of downtown Stanford.

It features four bedrooms, each themed after places the owners love, and four full baths. Other highlights include a spacious living room, dining room, kitchen, and small laundry area, as well as three porches for outside enjoyment. Gas fireplaces are in the downstairs living area and dining room, and a gas grill is on the back deck. The Givens House works perfectly for a large group or family, or even a couple who would like to entertain.

There is an outside ramp to a first-floor door allowing for easier accessibility. The dining room, kitchen, living area and Texas Room are on the first floor. The Texas Room features a king bed, a gas-log fireplace and a full bathroom accessible off the kitchen. The living room sofa is a queen plus sleeper. The dining room can seat up to twelve people.

Two bedrooms and two baths are on the second floor. The Shaker Room has two twin beds that can combine to make one king bed if needed. The spacious Shaker bathroom is down the short hall and has a steam shower. The Kentucky Suite has a king bed and a large en-suite bathroom with a steam shower and a soaking tub, along with a large walk-in closet.

The third floor is comprised of the Africa Room, with a queen bed, a twin foldout bed and a window seat that can function as a bed for a child. The room also has a small en-suite bath with a shower.
