From the Zillow listing:


This MUST SEE gorgeous, Victorian home with upper and lower porches sits in the heart of the Leinkauf Historic District where revitalization is taking place all around it. The LR, DR, Front Entry Hall, has been completely gutted and redone with Stunning woodwork hand-done by current owner, including staircase and railing. Windows in LR and upstairs BR have been replaced. Chandeliers and lighting all historic, valuable and beautiful! The house been steadily updated over the years by current owner. Recently – 2020 -the dining room was gutted and the gorgeous handmade woodwork added, part of siding (damaged parts) were replaced. The butlers pantry (which needed it) was gutted and owner built a whole new set of cabinets with TONS of storage! He continues to work on it while on the market. The two bonus rooms off the kitchen and butler pantry would make a fantastic MBR suite – which was owners intent. A third bonus room where back door is could be an office or divided to extend full bath, laundry, or simply a mud room. A forth bonus room on second floor – which is an old kitchen – can easily be turned into master bath and closet since the plumbing has been there anyway. Here is the kicker: Carriage house has very nice RENTED APARTMENT that rents at $650 per month and tennant prefers to stay if possible. There is some work that needs to be done but, having restored these homes myself, I can tell you, the hard work is done on this one! MORE PHOTOS TO COME THIS WEEKEND! BUYER MUST VERIFY MEASUREMENTS!!
