One Hundred and twenty-five years of history captured and perfected in this delightful and elegant Victorian beauty nested just 2 blocks from charming downtown Belleville. The Smith Pullen Home, rich with the finished details that make historic properties such a find is lovingly remembered as well as updated to make the perfect combination for today's buyer! The refined sitting parlor and family room with original crafted woodwork mantels and doorways to pantries and porches (2 of them!) capture the warm of its place in time. A terrific flowing floor plan fits today's homeowner while reminding one of the rich history each space had over 100 years ago. Generous bedrooms with plenty of sunlight and space open out to a second floor sitting room to capture the afternoon's rays. The almost half acre parcel includes gardens, patios, and a 4+ car garage and workshop. From frames to hinges, chandeliers to banisters, this painted lady is a most unique and special addition to the community. A short skip away from Belleville Lake, once the summer home destination for Charles Lindbergh and Henry Ford, you are guaranteed to be swept up by the excitement of Belleville shops, stores and more!

    I would love to buy and restore this house. It has some great potential. That newel, the woodwork, that amazing pantry with original cabinetry and some of those crazy mantels are to die for! The kitchen, bathroom, back door I’d do over and exterior siding I’d give 2 doses of siding be gone and put the door back up on from living room entry.

    Something flimsy about the staircase balustrade. Looks like every other one is missing. Maybe it was built that way. I’ve seen that every once in a while.

      The baluster spacing on the staircase does appear to be wider than usual. Of course, currently, considerably narrower baluster spacing is required by code (so toddlers won’t get there head’s stuck in-between) but this one should be grandfathered in.

    I’m going to have dreams over this one. Not in a position to move yet, but there isn’t a lot I would change here. And that hutch with the disappearing bottom! Be still my hearty…You really outdid yourself!

    I love the butlers pantry. It looks as if the cabinets with the glass doors have tilt out lower cabinet doors. How cool!
