The photographer called this property a cool character house and we couldn't agree more. This painstakingly restored former duplex mill house is absolutely move-in ready and in the thick of one of the coolest parts of town, convenient to everything; you name it, you're near it. This is a rare and historically storied block of Franklin Street in the coveted Cobbham district. Loads of custom artisan finishes in this 3 Bed/2 Bath home with heart-pine floors throughout and school-days-reminiscent VCT flooring in the kitchen and dining area and bathrooms. 10 Foot plus ceilings (re-claimed metal ceiling in the center hall). Interior walls were all taken to the studs, rebuilt, and insulated for further privacy. Blown cellulose insulation in the attic. Back screened porch overlooks the yard and veggie gardens below and was built to be convertible to interior heated and cooled living space if desired. Owner's suite with generously sized bathroom, very private toilet, and walk-in closet. One bedroom has been designed as a dedicated office space, and if you are a creative looking for a good home office, you just found it. Back yard is spacious and sunny and has a very hip vintage camper outfitted as a writer's retreat. Plenty of storage in numerous artisan built sheds and a basement that houses a workshop, laundry, and more storage. Newer HVAC and metal roof. Updated double pane windows throughout. All structural concerns typical of older homes have been professionally addressed. New plumbing and electrical. Much more to tell so please inquire for more info. But now to the POWER PLAY: This multi-family zoned property has been approved for a detached garage with a second story apartment. Drawings and updated plat are all completed, approved by the county, and available by request (realtors: draws available in the docs ). The current 20x22 foot print for this addition to the property could likely be expanded from 440 sq. Ft. to 1000 sq. ft. for more garage and living space above. PLEASE INQUIRE AND REQUEST DRAWINGS and PLAT. This would make an amazing guest cottage/conforming airbnb or permanent rental. All this and more, but we have to stop here, so please request a showing and we will happily accommodate! We suspect this one will go quickly.
