All the charm and character of a 19th century Victorian combined with the functionality and amenities of the 21st century. The high ceilings, individual room fans, beautiful woodwork and detailed craftsmanship are a journey back in time. The huge living room features the original restored tile covered fireplace, window seat, and crown molding. Pocket doors, oak crown molding, swinging door to the kitchen, and ornate chandelier make the large dining room perfect for holiday dining and special dinner parties. The kitchen features generous storage and counter space with Craftmaid hickory cabinets, pantry, and center island. The family room has a wood burning fireplace and huge windows overlooking the park. French doors open onto a deck with a country view in the city. The backyard gazebo is a tranquil setting for reading and afternoon tea. Every true Victorian home must have a wraparound porch for morning coffee and the newspaper. The meticulous attention to detail is carried over into the second floor which features three large bedrooms, retro 50's man cave, 10'x10' laundry room, and two bathrooms. The third floor is a totally unique master get away suite. It features a kitchenette, private living room, fireplace and luxurious spa like bathroom with soaking tub and separate shower. Behind the scenes of all this old world charm is a totally up dated infra-stucturer: 200 amp electrical service and all new totally grounded wiring; copper plumbing and modern fixtures ; reverse osmosis/four filter drinking water system; three furnaces, three gas log fireplaces, two hot water tanks; and newer achitectural asphalt shingles. The double brick wall construction is massive and will survive another 100 years. Not only is the home itself a masterpiece and a historic treasure, but the setting is truly unique. Standing on the back deck, you would believe the home sits on 10 arcres in the country. Yet it is convenient to shopping, schools, restaurants, and main roads. The home received The Canton Preservation Society Residential Award. A licensed appraiser valued the home at $278,000 in June of 2014. A carriage house cottage with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on the adjacent property is also available.
