"The Meadows Corner Lot Historic Beauty. Distinctive Historic Residence At The Quiet Intersection Of Olivia And Pearl Streets. Wrap-around Front Porch With Gingerbread Architecture. Off-street Parking. Nearly 2000 Living Sqft On 4800 Sqft Corner Lot. Opportunities For Updating, Great Bones. Wood Floors. Heart Shaped Pool And New Landscaping Provide A Very Private Setting. Historic In Every Way."The Monroe County Property Appraiser says this house was built circa 1906. It has an understated beauty that transcends the decades. I found the photo below taken in 1965.
The four bedroom two bath house has 1948 square feet of living space on two floors plus that incredible 443 sq ft wrap-around porch. The lot is relatively large for the Old Town area (64' x 75' or 4790 sq ft). That may not seem large compared to lot sizes up north, but it is larger than normal in the Old Town area. The current owner bought this house in 2007 and added a pool and air conditioning plus upgraded electric and plumbing. The asking price is just $700,000 (or $359 per sq ft). That, dear readers, is a lot of house for the money.
This home is owned by the same owner that has the adorable cottage I wrote about last week that I affectionately called The Love Shack. That place is just too cute for words. It's small and would make a great guest cottage for the main house. (Methinks that is why it was purchased at the same time by the current owner.) Both properties are offered for less than the original purchase price. There is no mortgage so this is not a forced sale.
