What I love about the home
Love the location! Located conveniently on Vermilion, but with a very secluded and quiet back yard! Many flower beds, vegetable gardens, and still plenty of green space! House has BEAUTIFUL woodwork throughout, large kitchen, and very spacious living and dining area for hosting with grand ceilings. The house has been carefully preserved to embody the orignality and features, while updated conveniences are not a shortage. Attic is unfinished but could easily be transformed to 2 additional rooms as there is a dedicated stair case leading to it. Neighbors are exceptional people who love to help each other restore and preserve their historic homes. Must see house with ample square feet that could easily be finished to whatever you want!
