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, small laundry area, and three porches for outside enjoyment. Gas fireplaces are in the downstairs living area, and the dining room and a gas grill is on the back deck. The Givens House works perfectly for a large group, family, or even a couple who would like to entertain.

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 has a steam shower down the short hall. The Kentucky Suite has a king bed, a large en-suite bathroom, a steam shower, a soaking tub, and a large walk-in closet.

The third floor comprises 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.
