The place

A renovated Victorian-style home with an outdoor pool and an antique brick facade.

The history

The home was originally built in the middle of the 19th century, and it was most recently renovated in 2013. The seller completely redid the master bedroom and two of the bathrooms, installed hardwood floors on the second floor, put in a new staircase and a built a new garage.

Here’s the entry:
