From the Zillow listing:


Let yourself go back in time to a simpler world whe nthe Barnhardt house was built in 1890. Situated between the West Square Historic District and the Fulton Heights historic district, it is a classic 4 over 4 wood sided home with covered front porch. You’ll find a fireplace in every room, an updated kitchen and lovely bathroom with furniture vanity, claw foot tub and gracious chandelier. Acquired from the Historic Salisbury Foundation several years ago, the current owners’ plans have changed, long after they began restoration. HSF had the home re-roofed and rewired. (Eventually, the valley of the roof developed a leak.) A commercial gas water heater was installed soon after the home was fully replumbed with a monoblock water distribution system. There is a geothermal heatpump in the attic just waiting to be installed. In storage, there are numerous other items/equipment/tools/trim/sink/granite/decorative ironwork/stained glass, etc, a list of which will be provided to the buyer.
