This handsome two and a half story, approximately 4000 sf house is one of the most magnificent examples of the Arts and Crafts Bungalow style in the region and was built in the early 1920's. A nearby nursing home has purchased the house and intends to demolish it. The owner has agreed to allow the house to be moved and offered $10,000 toward the moving costs if moved by January 31, 2012.
The interior of the house features exquisite woodwork throughout . The house is in very good condition.
The house exterior is wooden clad with side gables and three projecting gables, one placed asymmetrically on the front elevation and the other two on the sides. The house retains its original brackets, brick porte cochere and brick piers. The juxtaposition of the gables make it a varied and interesting composition.
The house is offered with protective covenants and there will be a very nominal administrative fee for PNC.
House could be carefully dismantled, or moved in pieces, and then rebuilt at a time when a lot is secured.
