Property Description

Pristine, Historic Home! This majestic Victorian is a rare find, as it was built in 1890, and has been restored to perfection- melding the workmanship of an era gone by with modern living.

The 2nd story has a huge master bedroom with attached sitting room, and there are two other large bedrooms, fabulous bath, walk-in linen closet with built-in and excellent closet space with 9' ceilings.
