The bathrooms and kitchen have been tastefully remodeled, seamlessly blending modern amenities with the home's classic aesthetic. Outside, the original iron fence still graces the north and west sides of the double lot (.4 acre), as well as the original post that visitors would tie their horse to, a few nods to the property's storied past. The full basement and attic offer areas for future finish.
