    Description

    Truly unique opportunity to own a piece of history! Hamorton Village was built in the 1800's. The original part of this home was built in 1840 and was said to be part of the Underground Railroad--there is a secret door in the basement that has been closed off. It was a doctor's office for a while and possibly (with the home next door) a tavern. Though one may wish to make updates, there is so much original charm to much of this home. There are exposed beam ceilings, random width original wood floors with hand cut nails and many original mortise doors with the original H&L hardware. The home has 3 fireplaces (though the previous owner never used them), 2 on the first floor and 1 in one of the bedrooms. The largest fireplace in the middle room on the main floor has a "Bible door" on the upper right of the fireplace wall and the front room has the original swing arm (crane) for a pot! An addition was built onto the back of the home approximately 1990 to 1992. There is a full bath on the main floor and the kitchen and laundry rooms are in this section. Upstairs you'll find 3 bedrooms and a full bath--go to the back of the full bath and there's a door to the 3rd floor attic which is floored and has many possibilities! The original part of the home is heated by oil fueled radiators; the newer part of the home has a gas heater on the wall in the kitchen. There's also a split system in the middle room. The oil heater was replaced approximately 2004 and the HWH in 2010. There is a detached double garage; one side belongs to this home. While the entire Hamorton Village is on the Historical Register, the home itself is not, which means you can make whatever changes you wish. The home does need work--but it's an opportunity to own a piece of history!
