Calling all contractors 3 Story home, situated on nice size lot awaiting to be completely rehabbed! The following is information about home from the seller... Family Room built, in 1976, by an artisan carpenter Each wall has paneling going in different direction vertical, horizontal, angle left and right As you leave kitchen to enter family room the kitchen becomes very narrow this was deliberate to give sensation of entering very large open area. Outside the screened in porch in about 2005, after a very rainy period large hole appeared which turned out to be remains of an old well. This was filled with cement Little Room This working fireplace shares a bivalve chimney with the room above (bathroom) Living Room IN 1976 the Springfield Historical Society had a historical tour of older homes in town, the colonial expert that visited stated that the wood front over the fireplace was one of the finest example of early American work he had ever seen and was museum quality. This fireplace is not working. The roof placed in 2019, The large window next to fireplace is called the coffin window because the doorways were too narrow to accommodate the casket The floor is covered by wall to wall carpet, underneath is wide plank wood panels. Dining Room Floor is covered with oak tiles over random board flooring The bedroom above is carpeting over same type of flooring, also third floors Basement The support system in place was put there to provide support as a waterproofing system was being installed and workers were working so close to weight bearing walls. Obviously the walls were fine. The furnace was replaced about 7 yrs ago due to wear and tear Roof The roofs (both main and secondary) were replaced due to oak tree ond front lawn falling on front of house, then roof finally landing on neighbor roof about five yrs ago. I was in front bedroom about 3 ft from window when tree fell, the room or even bed that I was sitting on never moved or shook Also the chimney to the furnace was replaced due to damage. This house (front two rooms) was built about early 1700s. The middle section ( kitchen, little room and room above ) was added about 1750. The family room, 1976. This home is awaiting improvements from it's next owner... Lots of history on this one, photos of original. home can be found in the Historical room at the Springfield Library.
