Property Description

* Reduced - Enjoy the Summer Blooms! * Opportunity awaits you to own a slice of history dating back to the 1700's. The historic Jacob Habernacker Homestead House at 229 Madison Ave was erected in the early 1800's and has been lovingly restored and cared for over the centuries by thoughtful owners who delighted in maintaining it's original splendor. From the hardwood floors to the grand fireplace in the dining room, you will admire the rustic touches blended with modern conveniences. The home's front door entrance leads you through the dining room, living room and eat-in 35-handle kitchen with breakfast bar. Laundry room and full bath provide convenience on the main level. Moving to the lower level you will find a finished family room perfect for movie or game nights. The lower level also has unfinished dry storage, a ground cellar, and furnace room. There is walk-up access to the rear yard, too. Upper level provides the (4) sleeping rooms. The main bedroom was enlarged, combining (2) of the sleeping rooms and separated with a lovely arched doorway. This is an ideal arrangement for parent's sleeping room and nursery, or a main bedroom with den. Additional (2) bedrooms and a large full bath complete the upper level. Stepping outside one of the bedrooms you'll enjoy the covered patio that overlooks the picturesque yard and in-ground pool. Through the 4th bedroom is the walk-up steps to the 3rd floor which provides a finished 5th bedroom, office or off-season storage room. The lovely half-acre park-like grounds provide a 2 car detached garage, in-ground pool, pool shed, gardening shed and root cellar, nestled among mature landscaping and foliage. The pool has been professionally opened and closed. Sellers will provide the new owners a complete title search and architectural analysis of the home that was completed by a professional historic and cultural resources company in 2004. Sellers will also provide the new owners a 1-year HMS home warranty with acceptable Agreement of Sale. Local Muhl Twp ReSale Inspection complete. Please call to schedule your personal showing today and experience a bit of local history.
