Awesome opportunity to own something truly special! Built in 1873, this historic home with 2900' sits on a wonderful .84 acre lot! Capt. Nicholas Beaver, a riverboat captain & his wife, Isabella, built the original home - it had just 6 rooms, 3 up & 3 down. Fast forward 145+ years to what's here today! Fabulous entry hall, enclosed screened porch, tall ceilings, 5 spacious bedrooms, a newer 3 car garage and solar panels for energy (just think of the energy savings during your ownership) - wow! The back 2 ample sized bedrooms (dimensions are 14x13 and 17x11) could be reconfigured to become the most incredible master suite if that's what suits the next owner. There are floor to ceiling built-ins and a fireplace in the large living room/dining room combination, the eat-in kitchen has lots of cabinets and the light filled family room with its beamed ceilings will make every day special! If you're looking for something unique to call home, be sure to check this one out!
