CHARM AND HISTORY
Perched at the entrance to 5.18 acres of land at the junction of Goshen and Staunton roads, this home is rich in charm and history. The cozy, country residence itself was originally built in the late 1800’s and features antique, fluted molding with rosettes throughout the home.
During one of the home’s upgrades, the owners were reminded of the property’s past. They discovered a newspaper from 1873 while replacing the home’s siding.(The Madison County courthouse records state the home was constructed in 1884.)
The property also has what was once a “summer kitchen,” a structure used for cooking away from the house during the heat of the summer. Before it was updated, this kitchen contained a generations-old sink and a stove that was connected to the original, brick chimney which was retained.
This unique, screened-in spot is now an irresistible, three-season gathering place, perfect for relaxing and welcoming guests for a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.
You’ll also find two inviting porches (one of which is enclosed), a comfortable, cheery living room, a kitchen with plenty of counter space, a bedroom, and a loft that was used as a second bedroom.
This storybook home also includes a formal dining room, a cellar, an expansive garage/shed with workbench, and a charming well that sits next to the landscaped walk.
With plenty of ground, you’ll have the opportunity to grow a substantial garden, build your own field of dreams, fly kites or remote control aircraft, and do countless other things to work, play and relax.
