From the Zillow listing:


History buffs take note. This home was constructed (Circa late 1800s) Nostalgia is all over the 2854 sf. The 4/3 affirms age with high ceilings, wood floors, mirrored mantles, tremendous windows, functioning transoms, clawfoot tub and beautiful trim work. Most of the wide baseboards and crown moldings are wood and have never been painted. A rare find. The dining room with wood burning fireplace a crowd pleaser. Front living room overlooking the concrete front porch offers friendly invitation. Bedrooms are certainly more than ample and can double as a keeping parlor, library or music room. While window units and gas heaters accommodate downstairs, the upstairs one bedroom and bath is centrally heated and cooled. In well over a century home some modernization and a fresh coat of paint have improved aspects of comfortable living while retaining aura and integrity of yore.
