Property Details


The house is an antique and part of our rich, local history. Original moldings throughout with central fireplace (decorative), built-in china closet, and parlor doors that were never painted. You will love the convenience of being in the heart of everything our beautiful city has to offer! Buy now and save several thousand -- before the owners continue with the next level of polishing, patching & painting, and other upgrades. So far, new: driveway, deck frame (with reclaimed composite decking), and vinyl fencing. Buyer's Agent will receive a commission. Realtors will please NOT CONTACT SELLER without an interested buyer. Showings will commence immediately with advance notice to current tenant. Please text or call Seller for more information, and provide an email for property disclosure. No other solicitors, please. First floor layout, front to back: Enclosed front porch; front foyer with stairway and original stained glass window; front living room with original parlor doors; central dining room with impressively mantled fireplace; sunroom/extended dining room with built-in china cabinet as you transition to kitchen; eat-in kitchen with original cupboards galore - looking out to new deck through the new double swinging french doors. Handy, three quarter bath off the kitchen. Upstairs layout: Three or Four bedrooms & full bath with original clawfoot tub. All rooms with closets and windows. Use the fourth bedroom as an in-home office with wet bar, or, convert back to a tandem bedroom. Original hardwood floors and moldings throughout - plus decorative open hearth fireplace in dining room, which may easily convert to gas logs insert.
