The Benjamin Seaton Taylor House

48 North Main Street Yoe, PA 17313
$319,900

Description

The Benjamin Seaton Taylor House is a unique jewel that has been lovingly maintained by its current owner in as close to original condition as possible. The level of craftmanship found in this Victorian Mansion is unparalleled in modern times – it was built with only the best materials money could buy. The home has 10′ ceilings on both the first and second floor; natural hard-wood floors and an original tile floor in the entrance way; a port hole window; intricate plaster moldings; lattice work; four walk-in and three cedar closets; twenty-six lead, stained, and curved glass windows; pocket doors, friezes and pillars; and a double Lazy Susan by the kitchen sink. The second floor has a separate electrical panel hidden behind an access, which would enable a new owner to convert it into apartments or a potential bed and breakfast. The attic is immense and could easily be finished to add even more living space or make a unique venue for entertaining. In its current configuration, the 3,790 finished square foot home has 4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, and 2 half bathrooms. The basement is exceptionally clean, painted, and has concrete floors throughout. The outbuilding (the only surviving example of five original tobacco drying sheds) is currently leased to an electrician and generates enough income to more than cover the insurance and property tax expenses for the year. This building adds another 2588 square feet of usable space to the property, 1034 of these square feet are finished. There is a two-car garage in the outbuilding as well as ample parking on the property. Priced well below its appraised value of $405,000 (09/07/2016), this one-of-a-kind property is an exceptional value with endless possibilities. The seller has also purchased a home warranty, which will convey to the buyer.
