WALK DOWNTOWN...This Victorian Beauty, built in 1880, is a must see. The seller has done the major improvements and awaits your personal touches to make this a spectacular home. Located in a Peaceful Residential area of Olde Dover, this home is walk able to downtown restaurants, parks and shops. Walk up the front steps to the wrap-a-round porch which was totally redone. As you enter the foyer, the lovely staircase w/windows will brighten your way. To the left is the formal living room w/pocket doors to foyer as well as 2nd pocket doors to the den. The spacious dining room has a large closet to use as a pantry or for your special dinnerware and glassware. The kitchen has had a new sink installed and cabinets painted and new flooring but is the last major project left for the new buyer. From the kitchen you can relax on the screened porch, which was also redone after the seller's purchase, and a concrete patio, all nestled by giant trees that shade the back yard. Upstairs has a new large hall bath w/new tile and fixtures, and a laundry area was moved upstairs w/a closet and back stairs to the kitchen. Primary bedroom is large and there are two additional bedrooms on the 2nd level with one turned into a home office with built-ins. There is a large suite and full bath on the 3rd level that the seller finished. This is a great teen retreat or owner retreat if you want. The many additional major repairs and updates are listed in Bright with the seller disclosures. There is a one car garage w/room above and staircase that is being sold "as is". It backs to the alley and offers off-street parking in back of home. The basement has new Bilco door and concrete flooring was added, and walls were stabilized and concreted. The charm of this home is all the original doors and hardware, original flooring and trim. The City of Dover is participating in a Tax Credit Program for Historic Properties. This is also posted in Bright with the disclosures. Don't Dream A Dream of owning a historic property...Buy One!
