This is a chance to own the historical James Peters home in Manchester. Built in 1920 the stately home was built in 1920. Ahead of the times, the home has 4 bedrooms and two baths upstairs with the primary having an ensuite and decorative fireplace and the hallway bath providing access to one of the bedrooms. Each bedroom has ample closet space and additional storage in the hallways. This grand home has an entertaining porch across the front with access from the sunroom on the side. Enter the home through the beautiful front door to the large living room with fireplace (fitted for gas). To the left is a banquet sized dining room with access to the butlers pantry and kitchen, and to the pull through portico on the side. To the right of the reception/lining room is access to the side sunporch. Two walls of windows and a wall of built in bookcases make this a delightful space. In the center of the home you find the grand staircase with palladium window guiding one upstairs. To the left of this hallway is the kitchen with white cabinets, a dining space and access to the porch (now closed in to accommodate laundry space and drop off zone). Between the kitchen and dining room is a butlers pantry with built in storage and space for a table or small table or additional cabinets. To the right of the grand staircase is a bedroom with a full bath. This was likely a library or office in earlier times. This space has access to the sunroom as well. The home has a partial ceiler but the coal furnace is long gone for molder air conditioning and water heating. There is a pull through portico that provides shelter to exit vehicles out of the weather and a carriage house/ double garage in the rear. The home has original hardwood flooring, a slate roof, carpet in 3 bedroom upstairs. Ceilings are 10 ft + but were lowered with the addition of HVAC. This is a great opportunity to own a piece of history. Home needs some TLC and is being sold as-is.
