Welcome to a home which has been in the same family for 100+ years. It lies on the southernmost street within the Town Limits, before the Kiwanis Park entrance. AS IS sale. Make this your mini farm! Mind you this home was occupied last year, but could be updated to Buyer's taste. Barn was constructed in 1982. It has a dirt/gravel floor, water hydrant, power and a corner which had been used as a horse stable. The property is just under .5 acre and has several flower beds and a large brick patio (14' x 25'). There's a carport area on concrete (13' x 21'), a covered porch (12' x 6') between the carport and Kitchen door, and a covered porch (12' x 6') at the double front door entry. If you're not from Elberfeld or Haubstadt areas chances are you haven't seen the common features of 100+ year-old homes, which are a front door above a front porch with Gingerbread (some of these were used as an entry to the porch for summertime sleeping, when the house interior was too warm) and two front doors on the main level. Vinyl siding/windows are newer. This home has original hardwood flooring in the two front rooms and in the two upstairs bedrooms. All rooms except the Laundry Room have a closet. Unfinished attic also has wood flooring and houses the water heater. It could be finished with insulation and drywall. The original woodwork and fireplace are characteristic of these homes and is quite unique and lovely. The contoured baseboards are 12" leading to the beautiful trim around the doors and windows. This trim has a floral motif. The original fireplace in the Living Room is pretty as it has the mirror, multi-colored tile around the opening and on the hearth. The firebox cover is black with a motif. Adjacent the fireplace is a built-in bookcase. In the Kitchen you will find a 1950's range/oven combo, a closet housing the furnace and shelved pantry. Also storage beneath the staircase and plenty of space for a table. The Dining Room has a built-in storage closet and the Bathroom is between the Kitchen and Dining Room. Bathroom has vanity, shower and storage cabinets. Beyond the Dining Room you will find a Laundry Room/Mudroom with shelving and drainboard sink. Parking abounds for 6+ vehicles and in the barn. Blooming Magnolia, Daffodils and space for gardening/hobbies awaits an appreciative old-house enthusiast! By the RR tracks; hear the train whistle!
