    Description

    If you love old homes, this one is for you! So much character and history in this lovely home. This 3 bed, 1.5 bath Civil War built home is one of the oldest homes in town (built in 1857)and the first red brick home (was stuccoed over in 1900 & restuccoed in 1950)! This home was once owned by J. Seaverns Erickson, one of America's greatest marine artists. He was known for his detailed & very realistic paintings of Clipper ships even though his eye sight was failing. In 1855 the town was surveyed and platted using the Black Locust tree located on the South East corner of the home as a landmark. And best of all, the Black Locust survived the great Derecho storm. This home offers two large porches (one enclosed & one open), a patio with electrical run for a hot tub, main floor laundry, a bowling alley kitchen island wood top, built ins throughout and a wood burning fireplace. The original kitchen still exists and would make a great pantry or library. The dining room has a long span of windows with a deep ledge that would be perfect for the plant enthusiast. There is a partial basement great for storage or a work space. There is also storage/work area above the 1 stall garage. The following updates have been done; new furnace and central air in 2010, new kitchen & living room windows in 2012, new kitchen & dining room flooring in 2013, roof on main house and porch in 2007, metal roof on the kitchen/dining room in 2012, main floor laundry/pantry added in 2009. Refrigerator, dishwasher and stove stay. Water main from street to house was replaced in 2007. This historical home is a must see!
