This historical Queen Anne Victorian is being offered for sale for the first time in over 20 years. Beautiful historical details were maintained and tastefully updated throughout the years. Public records date this house as being built in 1895 but maps from 1892 show this house standing, on then known as Selig Street, and owned by the Vandergrift family. The Vandergrifts purchased the house and/or land from the Sperry family in 1892. Walk up to the large front porch perfect for sitting and chatting with neighbors. Once through the beautiful new energy efficient front doors you will notice the handsome and freshly refinished exposed hardwood floors with inlays throughout the first floor. The detailed woodwork doesn’t stop there. Notice the door and window arches and trim that you don’t find in many homes. A modern and spacious kitchen offers new stainless-steel appliances and quartz countertops. From the kitchen walk out onto your covered back porch which overlooks the large, landscaped backyard. Your very own oasis with mature landscaping, perfect for entertaining and large enough to add a pool. While in the backyard – check out the large stone slab which was said to be used to climb onto a horse! The side yard may also be large enough to add a driveway. (Buyer will need to verify). Upstairs you will find 3 spacious bedrooms on the 2nd floor. The primary bedroom has a floor to ceiling mirror possibly original to the home! A large bath with walk in shower, tub and laundry can be found just off the main hall. Don’t miss the hall window seat looking out onto Lawnton! On the 3rd floor you will find the remaining 2 bedrooms and another full bath with claw-foot tub. The 3rd floor was originally used as the housekeepers’ quarters when built and was 2 bedrooms and a kitchen. The 2 bedrooms were made into 1 and the kitchen converted into a regular bedroom. The plumbing is still there, and this could easily be converted into a spacious in-law suite! Don’t miss the huge, clean, walk out basement that has tons of storage space or finish it for more living area! Most of the home has been freshly painted and is ready for you to move in! Tons of original stained-glass windows remain, and the replacement windows have been tastefully replaced with replicas. If you are looking for a home with character, history, and the right amount of upgrades this is the one for you!
