This beautiful, one of a kind home is known as the Pierce-Hallady-Abbott house. It is an arts & crafts/prairie style, 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath home on the historic register. All historic homes have unique features. Wander this one and you'll see many. The terrazzo floor in the spacious family room is a stunning feature along with the 2 fieldstone fireplaces. There are more though. For example, there are two different sized ironing boards built into one rather than just one. You'll enjoy the beamed ceilings, the built-in cabinets and oak woodwork. The laundry room is on the 2nd floor. Many windows have been replaced while others are original with newer storm windows. There are curved walls and lots of high ceilings. The home has been rewired, but the original light fixtures have been retained. All the bedrooms have walk-in closets. The study probably used to be a sleeping porch. You'll enjoy the bathrooms, too (the claw foot tub is a new copy). The 3rd floor rec room is finished and also has lots of floored storage area. Outside, the unusual, circular pool is partly above ground, partly in-ground and is set in a beautiful, brick patio. The pool liner is new. Then there are the 5 porches and much more. The furnace has been replaced and AC added. Additionally, the roof will be brand new at approximately closing time. You'll find the home has been well maintained, while keeping the wonderful historic features and character. It's a very open and easy living home with a figure 8 floor plan.
