Oh yes we are! — We are backkkk on Shearn St! This charming historic home marks our 9th project on this street and boy, are we glad to be here!
Located within the High First Ward Historic District (established May 2014), 2003 Shearn has been Respectfully Restored and Respectfully Added-On to. She is situated on a coveted 5,000 sf corner lot, with roomy green spaces at the front and side of the property – plenty of room for pets, plants and parties!
When we purchased this home, she stood at 1,216 sf, but with the addition, she now stands proud at 1,750 sf, with 4 beds / 2.5 baths. She has some solid historic bones – original windows and doors and exterior fretwork on the front wrap-around porch! The addition hosts the master en-suite, mudroom / laundry area and a fourth bedroom which is the perfect size and location for use as an office or nursery, as it’s in close proximity to the master bedroom!
Just one block from the Hike & Bike Trail, and surrounded by other single family homes, this historic treasure is definitely another residential treat in the First Ward!
