A spacious front porch welcomes you to this beautiful three bedroom, one and a half bath home that sits in the midst of a historic district that’s maintained the character and grandeur of times past. Take a step back in time as you cross the threshold of this mid nineteenth century home. Built in 1853, this home holds all of the charm and romance of old house living with gorgeous hardwoods, French doors, and woodwork that will make you swoon. It’s history has earned it a place on the National Historic Register. Ethereal sunlight streams through the large windows of this home at all hours of the day, which enhances the openness that isn’t common in homes of this time period. The house boasts a large dining room which serves as a perfect space to host family and friends. The main floor also showcases a fireplace with an intricate cast iron cover. While the character of this historic house makes it stand out, so do the massive restoration efforts and upgrades that bring it into the 21st century. Upgrades include a smart thermostat, smart lighting system, and a Ring doorbell. The remodeled kitchen has motion activated under cabinet lights, white subway tile, a cast iron sink, butcher block countertops, and new appliances, which convey. A remodeled half bath on the first floor features a large vanity with hand hewn hickory hardwood floors. New carpet takes you upstairs to a spacious master bedroom and second floor laundry room. Hardwood floors in two of the three bedrooms have been refinished to show off their original beauty. The full bathroom on the second floor has a beautiful new custom tile floor and tub surround. Recent renovations also include a new sewer line, and a new roof for the front porch. Outside you will find a large fenced in back yard with a brick patio and detached one car garage. Proximity to a renewed downtown as well as schools, parks, and a bike trail make this tree lined street one of the most desirable locations in Mount Vernon.
