From the Zillow listing:
HISTORIC 1890 BUILT AUGUSTUS HUFF home on the National Registry of Historic Places. Only a few families have had the pleasure of calling this folk Victorian style treasure, with its mansard roof, home. Now is your chance to own this RENOVATED jewel! The dramatic double door entry greets you upon your approach, as your eye catches the ornate woodwork and the expert craftsmanship which was utilized over 130 years ago. The wide hallway, the lovely hardwood floors and a unique split stairway will transport you to another time. These owners chose to leave the front parlor in its original décor to maintain the feel of the home. The kitchen has been renovated, and although the counter tops are new, the custom work island is made from wood which is original to the home. There is an abundance of counterspace, a Bosch dishwasher and a beverage area. The family room which opens to the kitchen has new carpet. The formal dining room features a door which opens to a side porch. The master suite on the main level features a dressing area off the bath. Upstairs you will find 5 bedrooms and a craft room, plus one full bath and one half bath. Unique to this home is the wide hallway spacious enough to be used as the children’s TV/game area. Most of the home has been rewired and the upstairs HVAC unit is new. The little yellow storage shed out back was originally used as a Carriage house! As you tour the home, be sure to look carefully at the ornate woodwork, the door hinges and don’t miss the original hitching post at the street. This family purchased the home a few years ago with an FHA 203k loan…which means FHA ensured that EVERY REPAIR WAS DONE CORRECTLY, and SAFETY OF THE FAMILY was paramount! Rest assured you are getting a great home! See Associated Docs for a detailed list of what these owners did room by room, as well as additional info on the history of the home and the surrounding area. The sellers are providing a Home Warranty which is paid until 2021. Although this old lady has had a facelift, the charm and the history remain for the new owners to love and appreciate for years to come.
