Welcome to this meticulously restored and charming circa 1884 Victorian home, tucked away down a quiet street on a picturesque property, dotted with stunning 130-year-old sugar maples, conveniently located on a county maintained paved road. This historic home has undergone extensive renovations and upgrades, making it a perfect blend of timeless elegance and modern convenience. Inside the house, you’ll find custom-built cabinets and a fireplace surround with built-in bookshelves, adding functional elegance to the living space. The parlor also boasts custom-built shelving, giving the next owner generous storage options. For cozy winter nights, a new propane fireplace with reclaimed vintage brick veneer surrounds and a concrete countertop hearth offers a warm and inviting ambiance. The main floor bathroom holds a special piece of history as the home’s original kitchen sink, which has been carefully repurposed with a custom-built vanity crafted from salvaged 130+ year old wood from the house renovation, adding a unique touch of character. Every room in the house has been thoughtfully wired for internet and cable TV, (high speed fiber available) ensuring that modern connectivity is available wherever you need it. Step into the heart of the home, where you’ll find a brand-new custom hardwood kitchen featuring butcher block countertops and a farmhouse sink. The kitchen is equipped with top-of-the-line Frigidaire professional stainless steel appliances, making it a chef’s dream come true. New soft-close cabinets provide functionality and elegance. The charm of the original wood windows has been preserved and meticulously restored, re-glazed, and fitted with new spring bronze weather stripping to ensure a seamless blend of history and modern efficiency. Additionally, the bathrooms have been completely redone with new tile showers, flooring, and fixtures. The upstairs bathroom features a beautiful custom mosaic tile floor, while the downstairs bath and laundry room boast blue slate flooring. The main floor has been graced with new flooring, and throughout the dining and living rooms crown molding has been tastefully installed, complementing the restored original wood trim found in various parts of the house, including stacked window and door trim, thoughtfully recreated to match the home’s original design. The second floor features original wood floors, beautifully refinished to their former glory, preserving the house’s historical character. The original stairs, spindles, and railing have also been lovingly restored, adding to the home’s unique charm. As a delightful bonus, most of the furniture, along with the refrigerator and washer/dryer, can be conveyed with the house with the right offer, making it an enticing and hassle-free move-in opportunity. The house boasts new electric wiring with a 200 amp service, and it even features a 2″ conduit thoughtfully installed for potential future additions like a garage or outbuilding. Additionally, the entire plumbing system has been replaced, ensuring worry-free usage, and a brand-new water heater provides efficient and reliable hot water supply throughout the home. Keeping energy efficiency in mind, the property boasts new high-efficiency furnaces, each with separate systems for the main floor and upstairs, and has been outfitted to facilitate central air. The energy-efficient measures extend to the insulation, with closed cell spray foam installed in the walls, crawl space, foundation (reinforced with concrete) and HVAC ducting, ensuring optimal temperature control and cost savings.

The exterior of the house showcases new LP smart siding, enhancing both durability and curb appeal. The front and side entry doors have been custom-made with stunning stained glass inserts, leaving you with a lasting first impression.
