From the Zillow listing:


Rare opportunity to own a well-known historic estate in Jefferson. One of the oldest existing homes in the County (built 1880). The original home is all brick/masonry construction (even the interior walls). A large family room addition (appx 700sq/ft) was added in 1976. The open kitchen was remodeled recently with new countertops and stainless appliances. A new two-car garage opens both ways to accommodate the paved circular drive-thru. The home offers 4 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms with almost 3000 sq/ft of above grade living area! The 3 upstairs bedrooms each have the original fireplaces used for heat in the 1800s. A 4th fireplace is located in the Dining Room. While historic, the home has been updated for modern times. The home is now heated with a forced air oil furnace as well as a heat pump to heat and cool the upstairs. The large wrap-around covered porch has recently been restored to enjoy once again. The driveways have all been paved and wrap around the large front lawn with a stone patio for entertaining. The possibilities for this home are endless! The estate is located between Jefferson & West Jefferson just minutes from downtown, and all the shopping and restaurants!
