From the Zillow listing:


Built in 1894 this home was renovated and expanded several times to become the Queen Anne gem that it is today. The first and second floors contain approximately 3,000 square feet with approximately 900 more square feet in the attic and another 1,000 square feet in the basement. The first floor consists of two parlors, a dining room, breakfast room, full bath and large kitchen. The second floor has two large bedrooms, one with an adjoining office, an extensive master suite and two full bathrooms. The full height attic has one room and ample storage areas with room for the mechanicals. The full height basement is unfinished with new concrete floors in most areas. The home has extensive Hyde-Murphy mill work including raised cherry wainscoting on most of the first floor rooms and three ornate mirrored mantles. The property also includes a whimsical, circa 1898, three story carriage house which has two garage stalls on the ground level and a two bedroom apartment on the second floor with room to expand onto the unfinished third floor. The formal rooms in the front of the home are in near original condition, having been restored in a past renovation. The rear of the home has had extensive work done to create a new kitchen with a fireplace, combine smaller bedrooms into a master suite and create three full bathrooms. In the process, new Andersen windows have been installed along with new wiring, plumbing and gas piping. The hard work is done and these new rooms await completion. This property was operated as a bed and breakfast in the past and could return to that use or make a fantastic single family home with extra income from the apartment in the carriage house. There are three off street parking spaces next to the carriage house and one additional space in the front. Words can’t describe the beauty and craftsmanship of this home and its potential. It truly must be seen to be appreciated. Please contact the owner, Dave, (814) 772-9738 ext 2 to schedule a showing.
