Introducing a well loved four generation owned home that is loaded with rare craftsmanship. From the beauty of the woodwork including glass hardware to the superior layout and design this house has space space space! With 5 bedrooms there are many options for room use. With 2 bedrooms on the main floor and 3 upstairs there is also an extremely large sleeping porch that is perfect as an office or studio for your favorite hobby. The kitchen has beautiful wood cabinetry in the main area and 2 pantries. The spice/prep pantry features a large sink with ceiling to floor cabinetry and the cooking pantry has a fold down door that acts as a floor to gain access to unbelievable shelving space. This feature alone is so unique and brilliantly designed! A swinging butlers door and beautifully crafted sitting bench with multiple drawers round out the kitchen design. The main floor also includes a large dining and living room featuring beautiful stained glass windows, sliding glass doors, glass built in bookcases, a wood burning fireplace with a firewood dumb waiter and an entryway coming off the full length enclosed front porch. The second level also features a large walk-in closet/area with vast shelving and separate cedar closet, two large eave closets in the bedrooms and a laundry shoot (accessed from both first and second levels) going to the basement laundry area! The basement includes a canning/preserve pantry, root cellar, pre plumbed bath and a very generous open area storage space with cellar door walk up leading to backyard. Rounding out this home is a separate 2 car garage with full span attic storage area. The generous lot size allows a garden or tool shed to be added. THIS IS A MUST SEE HOME! Motivated seller-

    Looks like a nice cozy place. I don’t know if it is my monitor or what, but the pink tile in that bathroom looks REALLY bright pink! It’s still pretty though.

      After seeing other vintage bathrooms that look pretty terrible, I am increasingly impressed at ones that look brand new like this one! Amazing care over the years.

    I don’t know where to start! The stained glass windows are gorgeous. I love the built ins, pocket doors, fireplace, original kitchen cupboards, the baths… Beautiful home!
