What You Need To Know
This Victorian style home sits proudly on a level corner lot on one of the more popular streets in the Rutherfordton City Limits. Originally built in 1896, an addition was built off the rear of the home that added the current kitchen & dining area & dramatically changed the way it lives. With tall ceilings, old wood flooring, moldings & trim details that you don't see in modern homes this home still offers a lot of character. But with a few key improvements in recent years, including the addition of a 2nd Full Bath & a new heat pump & ductwork on the upper level, along with a modern bath on the main, low-maintenance vinyl windows, laundry room, rear deck and updated lighting & plumbing fixtures this home's age isn't a barrier for any of life's stages.
First Level: As you enter the home you have the front foyer with the Master Bedroom to the left, Living Room on the right and straight down the hall on the left is the main-level bath with separate shower & tub, dual vanities & a laundry chute through the wall to the laundry room. Off the Living Room is the Dining room, both offering original fireplaces & through the dining along the rear is the large Kitchen & eat-in-Breakfast area with central island, a large walk-in laundry & pantry combo, along with plenty of room off the breakfast area for a desk to pay bills, catch up on social media or knock out some homework. The main level is heated with a Natural Gas furnace & Electric Central Air.
Upper Level: As you head up the stairs you'll again notice the original character in the winding staircase which lands in the upper foyer. One awesome feature of this home is the small covered observation porch that overlooks the street and gives a unique perspective of the neighborhood and would be a great place to sit and drink coffee in the mornings or sit and read a book in the evenings! 2 Bedrooms flank the brand new full bathroom that was added in March of 2017 and truly gives this home the upgrade it needs to be fully functional for everyone living in the home. The upper level is heated & cooled with a brand new TRANE heat pump installed in March 2017, which includes a transferable 10-year warranty.
Exterior: This home has great porches and decks which expand the 2,000+ sqft interior living space & give plenty of areas to entertain friends and family or wind-down at the end of the day. The front covered porch wraps around the left side and leads to the circular driveway and side yard. Off the rear, accessible directly from the kitchen is a wooden deck overlooking the fenced rear yard that's a perfect place to grill a steak or a burger while the dog lurks hoping he'll snag a piece for himself. There are two rows of large evergreens lining the side & rear lot lines that give an additional sense of privacy in the rear as well. On the right side is a small storage shed perfect for storing lawn and garden equipment, power tools, bikes, toys, etc.
Overall, this home has a lot to offer even the most discerning homebuyer. If you love the character of an older home, but don't want the headache of updating and remodeling and desire the amenities we've come accustomed to in today's world then give this home a closer look. We think you'll love it!
