Description

This newly renovated, restored and updated historic home is truly one of a kind. Full of character and rich in history, it is undoubtedly a conversation piece. This beauty is on the National Historical Registry and located in the Benson Street- Forest Avenue Historical District, within walking distance to the amazing downtown restaurants and shops. It's also conveniently close to the lake, perfect for a day getaway. We have seamlessly blended history and the present day in this home. If these walls could talk, they would tell you about the original shiplap and heart pine flooring it has held onto, the century old wallpaper behind the dining room walls, a root cellar under the house that was once used to keep fresh canned veggies safe from the elements, the use of some of the hardiest wood that puts todays new construction lumber to shame, and the historic craftsman style interior/exterior inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement featuring a spacious rocking chair front porch and gable roof, all true to it's era. This home was built in 1916 and boasts the high ceilings we all love to see in a historical home. There are four original decorative fireplaces with chimneys still intact. The original heart pine flooring has been restored with a natural oil finish, original windows remain preserving the home's authentic charm, hardi plank siding protect the homes exterior, oversized rooms and living areas to relax or entertain, the kitchen lined with walls of windows overlooks the backyard & has tons of natural light. The kitchen ceiling follows the vaulted lines of the home (did I mention the cedar planks?) and has been updated with new cabinets, butcher block counters, stainless steel appliances, apron sink, and recessed lighting with ample space for an island or kitchen table. The primary bath is very spacious and has been updated with two separate vanities, a free standing tub and walk in tiled shower. The house has been painted inside and out, the front porch was restored by only replacing rotted planks, new gutters were added to protect the front porch, new plumbing installed throughout including the sewer pipe to the city's main line with an added cleanout pipe, electrical has been updated, hvac has been serviced and is 6 years new, brand new tankless water heater, new lighting, ceiling fans and plumbing fixtures, crawl space support beams & posts have been added, termite bait stations surround the perimeter, and hard wired smoke detectors were installed. There is plenty of room for a side driveway and a backyard garage, rear entry stairs lead directly to the laundry/mudroom to drop your shoes and bags, ample space for an amazing back deck, plenty of gardening spots and an attic so big and tall that you could possibly add more square footage or just a place to store all of the holiday decor you could ever dream of. The list really goes on. This was not a rushed cosmetic only renovation, maintenance items were not ignored. The focus was to restore history, renovate what was in need of repairs/replacement, and update the home to the luxuries of today. There have been other beautiful historic homes that sold in the mid to upper 300's, but did lack updated bathrooms or kitchens and often had less square footage. We hope you will love this home as much as we do. There is so much character and history here...will you be next to add to the chapters of this homes story?
