This residence is on a full lot (65’x 165’) at the corner of Main Street and 11th Street. It has 5 bedrooms and was built in 1853 with an addition in 1912. The 2-story brick home has 3272 square feet of living area and 3 staircases to the upstairs (one staircase is a very unique “double staircase” with one approach from the front foyer and one approach from the dining area which join at a landing and continue to the second story. The front porch has a beautiful leaded glass entryway plus ornate rounded windows (also with newer replacement windows). There are 2 “Rookwood Fireplaces” (one with posters, which match the posters along side the “double pocket doors” from the dining room into the living room (or parlor), and the posters between the living room and the “rear parlor” (which has a very unusual built-in linen cabinet). The dining area also has very unusual built-in curved glass cupboards, a bay window and a leaded glass window. The rear patio is very secluded with intricate flat stonework. There is one half bath in the main floor and an unusual full bath on the second floor that has a common area tub and a separate ”Jack & Jill” restroom area. All baseboard and trim are original hardwood, there is hardwood flooring throughout, nearly all windows have newer replacement window and existing window treatments will remain with the home. The house is heated by a natural gas furnace and has both metal and asphalt shingle roofing. It has 2 – 200 Amp electric services (one for the barn) and could have 2 separate kitchens. The property also has a small (11’x14’) utility shed and a large two-story barn with a lean-to. This unique barn also has a “built-in outhouse”. This property cannot be adequately described – It must be viewed to be appreciated.
