Victorian Dream to invest in or make your dream residence.  This property operated as a triplex in the past but could easily be brought back to a stunning single-family home if desired.  Breathtaking woodwork, 5 fireplaces, pocket doors, grand foyer, hardwood floors, detached 3-car garage, plus additional off-street parking.  First floor is 2-bedroom, 2-bath with fireplaces in living, dining room, bedroom and entry hall.  Second floor is 2 bedroom, 1 bath with fireplace and the third floor is also a 2-bedroom, 1 bath.  Property would make a beautiful Bed & Breakfast in a hot location just 20 minutes to PSU and 30 minutes to Altoona.  Close to everything yet tucked in a quaint community.  Some pictures are virtually staged to show the warmness of the home.  Property is subject to Deed of Preservation and Conservation.
