The interior ornate woodwork and hardwood floors have been well maintained over the years. If you are looking for closet space you will find the extremely large bedrooms with walk-in closets and built-ins to be a good fit for your needs. You will find a fully finished attic and partially finished basement, with the basement containing a newly installed gas heating system. This rare find is a diamond in the rough and awaits your imagination to bring it back to its former grandeur. Property being sold in "AS IS" condition.
