A grand dame in its day! This turn of two centuries, three story twin is actually almost 4,000 square feet in size plus a huge unfinished, dry basement with 9 foot ceilings! Enter the vestibule from the wrap around covered porch and proceed to the lengthy hallway, but do not miss the original newel post lamp and the exquisite banister ascending the front stairwell. Tucked under the stairs is the powder room with pedestal sink. The living room, off to the right, is centered with a tiled over fireplace with authentic mantle and has carpet over wood flooring. The adjoining family room can be closed off with magnificent pocket doors while enjoying the 12 foot ceilings throughout the first floor! The large dining room features pine wood flooring as does the entire house plus a large built in corner china closet. The outside door leads to its own covered porch with steps to the backyard. The kitchen is waiting for a new owner's touch but has plenty of space to work with! Laminate flooring, back stairs to the second floor and a large built in pantry cabinet complete this room. The rear door leads to the back yard and the two story true carriage house. The all brick structure with a slate roof (needs some work) will house one car and has the original stall for the horse used to draw the carriage (could be converted to house another car). There is room to park an additional car outside of garage. Also there are two storage rooms above. The second floor is a treat! High ceilings, plus massive bedrooms complete with closets. The bedroom currently used as a master has two closets and connects to what is being used as a master sitting room also with double closets but could easily be an additional bedroom. There is a large hall bath with a linen closet, double medicine chests and a claw footed tub with shower. The second bedroom has its own little conservatory room! Continue to the third floor where you find another huge bedroom with heat. The additional two rooms could easily be converted to bedrooms with the addition of supplemental heat. One was previously used as a studio and the other is used for storage (the roof was professionally fixed but interior not repaired). The basement is cavernous! The washer and dryer are located here along with the 200 AMP panel box. The rich woodwork throughout the house has not been painted and shows beautifully. This house has tremendous possibilities for the right buyer!
