This early 1900s American four-square home is not just located on a corner, but it also sits on an over-sized lot – with a backyard that is a little slice of heaven in First Ward, with mature trees framing the view and squirrels and birds visiting all the time. We bet the new homeowners are often found sitting outside enjoying their large back deck!
The Respectful Restoration also included adding on 120 sf to the original footprint of the house, allowing for a generous sized master suite. This home’s historic features include 11’6″ ceilings, a central hallway that has one wall of exposed (and painted) shiplap and beautiful, original hardwood floors!
The house backs onto the Winter St train tracks. While most may find the train a nuisance, we think that it serves as an important reminder of First Ward’s past – a community that emerged from thriving commerce and trade, that plied its wares via the train route!
