Features include 4 wood-burning fireplaces, original wide-plank oak flooring and trim, and original 6 over 12 pane windows.

  • Property Narrative

    Open the white gate and step on to the columned front porch and back in time, to the days when horses and carriages rolled through Union. This historic home’s living room and parlor both feature parquet oak floors, antique chandeliers, fireplaces with wood mantels, chair rails, wide baseboards and tall windows. A small office/reading nook tucked behind the living room hugs the south corner of the home and overlooks the front and side yards.

    The main floor also includes the kitchen, large dining room, a laundry room and a full bath with a tub, porcelain sink and linoleum floor.

    The kitchen has a central island with storage and seating for four, a double porcelain sink, a Crosley refrigerator-freezer, a Kelvinator electric range and a pantry closet. Also conveying with the sale are a Kelvinator washer and dryer.

    An oak staircase leads to the three bedrooms on the second level.  All bedrooms have original oak flooring, closets and fireplaces. A small bath with a shower is accessed from the landing/hallway.

    A separate staircase in the dining room provides access to an enclosed loft that could function as a fourth bedroom.

    There is a side porch with a tall ceiling. This porch is shielded by latticework from the side street bordering the property. There is an attached storage room/workshop in the rear of the home.

    This historic property has potential but it needs an owner with a creative touch to enhance its grace and charm.
