    Description

    An amazing home inside and out, this Queen Anne Victorian home is full of local history and was blessed upon it's completion by Rev. Chester Covell at a dedication ceremony on February 25, 1893. Sitting on .75 (mol) acres, this 3 BR, 2 Bath home is one-of-a-kind. It has beautiful hardwood floors downstairs and all new carpeting upstairs. The unique gingerbread, spindled staircase and built-in units give it vintage charm & quality. Two sets of pocket doors enclose the parlor and gingerbread separates the parlor from the living room. A wood-burning fireplace is the focus of the living room, and the cast iron enclosure can be replaced with a fireplace screen if you want a larger viewing area. The kitchen has a beautiful maple floor with a breakfast bar, and the adjacent large formal dining room is perfect for large gatherings or parties. Just off the kitchen is a 5x7 pantry for storing food and appliances. A 4-Season room with lots of windows brings the beauty of the landscaped yard with lots of varieties of flowers, hedges, and perennials inside. The downstairs also has a full bath. Upstairs at the top of the steps is a beautiful sitting area with lots of natural light. All new carpeting is on this upper level. The MBR has a wood-burning fireplace and a separate dressing room. Next to the MBR is a convenient laundry room, but it could be converted back to a 4th bedroom or hobby/craft room if desired. The second full bath is on this level. This home also has a full walk-up attic that is floored which could be used for storage or converted to additional living space. The full basement is great for storage with good-sized rooms. But wait--there's more! The Carriage House/Garage has an oversized 2-car area with garage door openers, plus 2 more doors for drive-through convenience of storing mowers and yard equipment. There's also a full walk-up attic for storage or recreation room. Just outside the Sunroom is a brick patio that overlooks a 16x20 pond with a relaxing waterfall. The current owners had a fenced-in flower garden along with many lovely rose bushes, hydrangeas, and shrubbery throughout the property. Plus a flower potting shed is attached to the garage. This lot is so big that there's even enough room for a large garden at the back of the lot. All antique light fixtures stay. Ceilings & walls painted 2021, some exterior painted 2020 & 2021, new carpet 2021, new Dishwasher 2020, new refrigerator 2018, furnace rebuilt 2020, and new AC outside 2016. This home is a rare find, so don't delay! Call today for a private showing! Seller is also providing a transferrable Home Warranty at closing.
