From the Zillow listing:


Wow! If you are looking for an affordable, historic home, with a cozy feel, this is it. The woodwork in this home is absolutely beautiful and has been well maintained over the years. So many amazing features, including: 3 fireplaces (have not been used by current owner), a built-in mirrored display cabinet with what is believed to be original tile, pocket doors, tin ceiling in kitchen, partially finished basement and much, much more. The exterior needs soffits and fascia painted. Seller is offering $5000.00 back at closing (with acceptable offer) to have this done. You must see the inside of this home. Island in kitchen does not convey. Other room is sitting room. 4th bedroom also used as laundry room. Second other room is large pantry.
