picturesque Arts & Crafts foursquareThis impeccably restored and beautifully maintained Arts & Crafts Four Square turns 100 years old this year! Nestled on a double lot comprised of over an acre of land* it features:

  • living room with freestanding soapstone wood stove (you can easily and cost-effectively heat the whole house with it)
  • parlor/dining room
  • large eat-in kitchen with double-sided pine built-ins
  • screened-in porch in front (just repainted)
  • 3-season back porch (with new windows)
  • four nice-sized bedrooms (one on the main floor which doubles as a guest room with walk-through half bath)
  • spacious family bathroom with clawfoot tub/shower
  • spectacular walk-up attic with two huge dormered windows (both new) suitable for turning into a Master suite with sitting area and walk-in closet

This has to be the best-preserved example of a home this age that I have ever seen. It's simply oozing with charm and boasts a ton of original features such as:

  • extensive Douglas fir woodwork
  • maple hardwood floors
  • Douglas fir floors
  • pristine pine built-ins with original patina
  • 5-panel doors with all original brass hardware
  • 10 foot ceilings
  • leaded glass windows
  • mature trees including white pine, spruce, maple, plus many mature perrenials

In addition, the home has been extensively updated and exceptionally well-maintained:

  • new exterior paint (May 2009)
  • newer roofs (main house roof 1994, back porch roof 2007, cellar door roof 2009)
  • newer water heater (2007)
