This Church Street home is over 100 years old but doesn’t show its age. Compactly designed and tucked on a low hill in this quiet leafy neighborhood, the home has a living room, family room, kitchen, dining room, 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths and an office (or spare bedroom/playroom/workout room/studio). Close to downtown restaurants, shopping and entertainment. Small yard with minimal upkeep.
Brick steps lead to a covered front porch overlooking Church Street. The entry opens directly into the living room, which has its original oak floor. The adjacent dining room has wainscoting, an attractive chandelier and a built-in hutch. The kitchen, in the rear of the home, has tile flooring, laminate counters, custom cabinetry and a double stainless steel sink. Appliances include a Frigidaire refrigerator-freezer, a Whirlpool electric range, a Whirlpool dishwasher, and a garbage disposal. A laundry room is nearby, with washer and dryer hookups, cabinets and shelves.
The family room has laminate wood flooring, built-in shelves and a woodstove. This room opens to a small brick patio.
The master bedroom has laminate wood flooring, a large closet and a ceiling fan. The master bath has tile flooring, two porcelain sinks and a shower-tub.
Bedroom 2 has access to the master bath, or its own hallway bath, with wood flooring, a porcelain sink and a clawfoot tub.
Bedroom 3 is a multipurpose space, also suitable for use as an office, studio, workout room or playroom. This room has direct access to the front porch.
The partial basement essentially serves as a utility room.
The compact yard is attractively landscaped with shrubs and perennials requiring little attention. The back yard is large enough permit a garden, or fencing for pets.
One of the home’s most appealing features is its proximity to downtown Lewisburg. The location is a short stroll from Carnegie Hall and only slightly longer to the town’s popular restaurants and shops.
While the house is on one level, it may be challenging for those with mobility issues because access requires climbing steps from Church Street to the front porch.
In addition to serving as a family residence, this cozy, quaint and convenient home has also been successful rental property.
