Property Description

Don't judge the present by the wrapping! Turn of the century vintage "Painted Lady" grand Victorian with wrap around/screened porch on oversized corner lot. An abundance of magnificent original features. Vestibule style entryway. Glorious grand hall with unbelievable craftsmanship:astounding staircase w/built in lighting, original fireplace with custom tile, doors and coal box, sitting nook in classic Victorian walk in bay. You'll marvel at the 10' ceilings on the 1st floor, 9' celings on the 2nd floor. Elaborate original woodwork with grand details everywhere you look, including egg and dart moldings, 10" baseboards, solid oak pocket, panel and swing doors. Hardwood flooring including quartersawn full plank oak with picture frame and herringbone corners, pine and fir. Gorgeous stained, leaded and beveled glass windows. Vintage entertaining in the elegant dining room, complete with stained glass chandelier and built in china cabinet (with hidden peek through to see from kitchen to entry hall.) Updated kitchen boasts Prairie style cabinets, Talavera tile, granite counters, farm sink, island, serving pantry, tin ceiling. Pendant, up and down lighting; built in storage, plus separate vintage butler pantry and access to the rear staircase that leads from kitchen to upper hallway and laundry room. Second floor offers 4 generous bedrooms and a full bath with vintage pedestal sink and tub with handheld shower - there's room to expand into the laundry room to enlarge bath in the future. Full staircase to unfinished attic/third floor: great storage or imagine your future art studio here! Basement is accessible off the kitchen: original limestone foundation, with bulkhead door to the exterior, too. Gracious paver sidewalk with decorative accents. Cypress sided exterior needs a complete paint job. Slate roof is missing a few shingles, seller has replacements and will install when weather permits. Old barn has seen better days, as has the original 3-stall outhouse that's now a storage shed. There's a one car garage attached to the barn, room next to the garage for a future parking/drive off the paved alley. A truly unique opportunity to become the 4th owner/family since built. Pre-qualified conventional finance or cash buyers only.
