Penny Mansion

This 128 year old stately historic stone home is waiting for it's beauty to be re-exposed.

Do you have vision? This home and property needs your loving touch -- there is beauty beneath the overgrowth and dust. Picture this stone house restored and brought back to its glory with a front porch overlooking the spacious front yard. Enter through an old wooden door into a grand living room complete with two fireplaces, bookcases and a old door that leads into the dining room with yet another fireplace.

Original wide plank wood floors, beautiful old woodwork and original hardware are just a few examples of what is waiting to be revealed. The sunny enclosed porch with it's brick floor and many windows and an adjoining kitchen complete the first floor. Upstairs you'll find the same beauty just waiting to be restored to it's original elegance.

To the rear of the house, there's a second building that houses a two car garage, and a renovated two bedroom apartment. The two bedroom has already been restored and is ready for a tenant, or use it as a place for you to reside while you work on the big house.

The grounds are lovely, the old stone house could be beautiful. There's so much potential. It is zoned non-conforming, so the possibilities are almost limitless. Public water, public sewer and gas are available. It's a gem in the rough. What's your vision?
