In the heart of downtown Traverse City, this classic victorian home is filled with its original 1895 warmth and character. The home is now looking for its next adoring owner who appreciates its irreplaceable historic charm and who will help fulfill its incredible potential with restoration and design prowess. Enjoy its bright and spacious rooms with hardwood floors and original woodwork and trim throughout. The main floor boasts an over-sized formal living room with a gas-burning fireplace set in a wood mantle. The living room flows into a spacious family room, spilling into an Old World dining room. The updated kitchen sits in the back of the house, overlooks the backyard and features a wood-block island and loads of built-in cabinetry. Tucked around the corner from the kitchen is a private library or playroom lined with custom bookshelves. A stately wood staircase leads from the entryway to four spacious bedrooms upstairs with large closets and an additional study/non-conforming bedroom. A full and 3/4 bath are located in the upper hallway, and the oversized master bedroom boasts a walk-in closet and en suite bath with a jetted tub. You will fall in love with the enchanting, private downtown lot. One could easily convert the home into a duplex for an investment or into a 3 bed/3 bath primary residence with a 1-2 bed/1 bath hosted short-term rental. The sky is the limit with this home. Located just steps from all of the downtown Traverse City’s amenities and beautiful West Bay beaches.
