      The sink on the floor is a built-in mop station. Hard to tell from the picture, but probably not original. I suspect it went in at the same time as the kitchen remodel added commercial appliances.

      Utterly charming house. In great shape wood-wise, and fireplace wise. I’m a little concerned about missing bathroom pictures. Perhaps they are all modern (and so not worth showing), as a house like this wouldn’t have had that many in the beginning.

        The sink in the kitchen is a “mop” station required by the health department if you are serving food/drinks to the public. They did a nice conversion to B&B, which in smaller homes sometimes doesn’t work as seamlessly. Beautiful wood and cabinets. It appears the B&B was called “The Victorian Plantation” and was quite an elegant destination wedding/event venue. B&Bs have been hit particularly hard during the pandemic shut down; sad for those struggling.

      I bet it’s a dog washing/utility sink.

        That would be a good use for it. Anybody who has a dog knows how much this would come in handy. That said, I might have raised it up slightly for old folks like myself!

  2. I’d love that house, but the electric bill would be very heavy….It surely needs a new family to fill it with love..

    Beautiful, beautiful home! I’ve never seen built-ins with the oval glass in the doors. She’s a true beauty. And that kitchen! Wow!

    The octagonal room partitioned off with the beautiful fretwork spandrel really catches the eye. It is but one of several fine millwork details found in this house. Good to see that previous owners were good stewards of this home.
