Architectural & Historical Information

An earlier federal two room house was built on the site by Barnett Carr (1795-1880) and dates to the early 19th century. It was first expanded by Jacob Obed Carr (1840-1914) sometime in the mid 19th century, who added four rooms to the front of the first story, and two rooms above making it a two-story structure. In the late 19th century, Snyder Hiriam Carr made further additions to the house, adding two more rooms upstairs and the Victorian porches, being the configuration that exists today.

The two-story front porch retains its beautiful sawnwork details with turned spindle porch posts. Interior features include diagonal beadboard wainscoting in the central hall on both the first and second stories, original windows and doors, wood mantels in the parlors, original hardwood floors and original baseboards and door moldings. There are four large bedrooms upstairs, the potential for a master bedroom downstairs, and a large sun room that could make a beautiful light-filled kitchen.

The property has been vacant for many years and suffered significantly from neglect. The front porches will need to be structurally stabilized in order to avoid further collapse, and structural repairs are needed in the sun room. At minimum, the roof requires repairs. The property will need a complete rehabilitation including carpentry and cosmetic repairs, installation of all new systems (plumbing, electrical and HVAC), and updates to the existing bath and kitchen. Prospective buyers will likely wish to create a master bedroom with bath, and potentially move the location of the existing kitchen in order to accommodate a more modern and spacious kitchen.
