A small breakfast room and butler’s pantry are located adjacent to the kitchen. An open staircase, with all balusters in place, leads to a landing on the second floor. Upstairs there is the primary bedroom with a dressing room, a full bath, and a walk-in closet. The dressing room has custom built-in shelving, shoe racks, sweater boxes, and drawers, all concealed by louvered doors. On the second level, there is also a guest room with half bath, walk-in closet, and large storage area. The home could be brought back to its former grandeur by just the right buyer with vision and appreciation for older homes with unique features. Renovation Notes: A new roof was installed in 2020. The kitchen and the two (2) full baths have been demolished in preparation for upgrades/new plumbing. Heating/cooling system(s) are needed. A certified electrician would need to evaluate existing wiring. There are areas where past termite damage is evident. Some studs and floor boards will need to be replaced. New energy efficient windows would be a needed upgrade.
