This wonderful home is as rich in history as it is in opportunity for you to become part of its nearly 200 year legacy as a residence. The land on which the house was built can be traced to a 1750 sale, and the oldest part of the house dates to the 1830's when it was the home of a tanner, William Casselberry, a prominent name in the region. The stream that flows behind the house appears in at least one 19th-century map with the designation "Tannery Run". Take a moment to relax on the expansive rear deck where the quiet enjoyment of the run and lush 2 acre lot is quickly evident. Inside you will find the sought after accoutrements of vintage homes including 9' ceilings, crown molding, beautiful original doors, trim and hardware, and random-width wood floors (Living Room and Dining Room have parquet floors). Important improvements have been made, including taking many of the walls down to studs, installing new electrical wiring, adding insulation and drywall that was given a plaster finish to preserve the appropriate period appearance throughout the home. The Kitchen is enormous and opens to a wonderful Sun Room with nearly floor-to-ceiling windows that allow one to enjoy the gorgeous backyard during all four seasons without going outside! A three room Master Bedroom Suite includes a cathedral Sitting Room that pays homage to the original structure (you'll want to see this!), includes a fireplace, and provides access to the remodeled Bathroom with stall shower. You will find another fireplace in the Living Room that is accented by lovely, built-in glass display cases. The Library is a wonderful location for the home office. With Residential Office District (RO) zoning many uses are allowed, including office or studio of a physician, dentist, teacher, artist, engineer, accountant, musician, architect, lawyer, outside salesperson, or Realtor (consult with Township to confirm intended use). The 27' x 24' detached garage with staircase to floored second floor adds to the possibilities. The owner shared the following comment, "Parts of this "Tannery Run" home are more than 180 years old. Every owner, every generation, has altered it. It shows almost two centuries of love and hard use. I hope that as its next owners become acquainted with it, they will change it in ways that will make them happy." For more information and history, see remarks added to the Seller's disclosure.
