This 2-story columned home in a residential neighborhood was constructed in 1890 and it has been updated over the decades. The original hardwood floors have withstood 130 years’ worth of use remarkably well but they could use refinishing. The home has a back deck, and the spacious yard surrounding the house has mature trees and vegetation.
Located near Ronceverte’s west end, this home is entered via the kitchen, which is next to the driveway. The kitchen has pine cabinetry, laminate countertops with a double stainless-steel sink and an eat-at counter, and linoleum flooring in a tile pattern. Appliances include a Kenmore side-by-side refrigerator freezer, a Kenmore gas range and a Whirlpool dishwasher. A door in the kitchen leads to the small partial basement, which serves as the utility room.
A dining room with a chandelier connects the kitchen and living room. Both rooms have hardwood floors. The living room includes a woodburning fireplace that is currently sealed and could possibly be reopened.
The first level also includes a laundry room with Kenmore appliances, a small back porch/mud room that exits to the yard, and a full bath with a shower-tub, porcelain sink and linoleum floor.
An oak staircase leads to the second floor. This level is carpeted and it includes four bedrooms and a bath. The bedrooms are similar in size and on the small side, and include closets. The bathroom has a shower, a composite marble sink and a linoleum floor.
A deck winds around the side and back of the home and overlooks the yard.
While this property isn’t designated “historic”, given its venerable age it is still a remarkably livable home.
