Description

Step back in time and experience the enchanting allure of this historic gem, a captivating residence that tells the story of a bygone era. Built circa 1865, according to Loring McMillen, who served as the borough’s official historian from 1923-1991. This Victorian home seamlessly blends the charm of yesteryear with modern comfort, offering a truly unique living experience that has been owned by the same family since 1964. As you approach, you can imagine the block in the late 19th century. The exterior exudes a classic Victorian style that showcases the craftsmanship of that era. The charm continues as you step through the front door into a foyer that transports you to a different time, with original details and period-specific style. As you enter the parlor, the original doors, high ceilings, and fireplace immediately take you back in time. The kitchen was added at some point gaining additional square footage. It is a charming blend of vintage aesthetics and modern convenience. Original features have been seamlessly integrated with contemporary appliances, creating a space that is as functional as it is nostalgic. The dining area is perfect for hosting intimate gatherings, with floor-to-ceiling windows and lots of light, an original fireplace, and hardwood floors. The living spaces are bathed in natural light, thanks to large windows that frame scenic views of the surrounding landscape. There are amazing water views of the harbor from the back of the house. This residence boasts four bedrooms, with great proportions making for tranquil retreats with excellent closet space and a vanity with sink in one of the bedrooms. Beyond the interior, the property extends its charm to the outdoors. The grounds feature some mature landscaping, offering a serene backdrop for outdoor activities and entertaining or planting and relaxing. Full unfinished basement with laundry, plenty of storage, and access to the backyard. This house is not just a home; it's a living testament to a bygone era. If you appreciate the timeless beauty of historical architecture, if you long for a home with a story to tell, then this residence is a rare opportunity to own a piece of history.
