Located in the North Opelika Historic District and featured annually on the Victorian Porch Tour, this single level home with its 10 ft ceilings, original baseboards, mantles, sconces, and dining room chandelier was built in the high quality construction of almost a century ago. It has four points of entry, including a front door that opens into the spacious and welcoming formal living room complete with a working fireplace fitted with an insert. The living room connects to the formal dining room and hallway through 2 sets of beveled glass French doors that match the exterior doors, all of which are original to the house. The back entry has a back porch converted into a mud room/laundry room that opens into a large kitchen with custom cabinets, a breakfast area and desk connected to an ample formal dining room. Off the wide hallway big enough to function as an additional living area, there are 3 bedrooms and 1 bath. Off the living room to the right of the entry is a music room that can also function as an office or could be converted into a 4th bedroom. Flanking the living room and music room are a carport/covered patio and a glass enclosed sun porch, respectively. Unfinished space includes a small cellar and spacious storage attic.
