Above the massive two car garage sits a large studio apartment that could be used as an in law quarters, home for guests visit or long term/short term a rental for passive income.

Staying true to the legacy of this home, many original features have been preserved with exceptional attention to detail. Throughout the home you notice the antique hardware, original restored floors, doors, molding and handrails. Unique details like the mortgage "button" at the bottom of the main staircase, original frosted glass, and a striking cast iron cornstalk fence truly make this home one of a kind.

Updates including, a modern chef's kitchen, heated walkway in front of the house, lead paint remediation, and 3 separate geothermal heating zones including 2 that were updated in 2022 and 2023.
