Historic Foursquare Home

This awesome 2.5 story brick home with tile roof and craftsman influences is truly a rare find. Character abounds in the beautiful stained glass windows, gleaming hardwood floors, mirrored oak fireplace and original woodwork featuring many built-in cabinets, pocket doors, column units, 5" window sills, 5" window and door trim, crown molding and 7" baseboards. A walk-up attic and basement provide lots of storage. The home boasts a fantastic 10x30 front porch and a back porch, and sits on a large 0.6 acre lot with mature trees. The huge carriage barn with 2nd floor loft has the original horse stalls and a 2-car garage.
In the quaint town of Big Rock, this is one greatly admired home. Originally owned by Fred Humiston, since then, for all but about 6 years, this home has been owned by 3 generations of Humiston’s descendants, the Davises. The current owner, a Humiston descendant as well, hopes to find a buyer who will love, respect and appreciate all of the fine attributes this home offers.
