Historic is not just a word for this home! On the historic registry, this awesome home was originally built in 1900! Located just 2 blocks from Depot Street and downtown Hartwell, it has been totally renovated with many upgrades! The original hardwood floors flow throughout this spacious home, as well as completely new electrical wiring and plumbing, new light fixtures, new windows, new cabinetry, sinks and new HVAC systems (2 years old)! New marble countertops and tile floors have been installed in the kitchen and rear entry areas. The home has been completely re-painted, inside and out! 3 bedrooms are located on the main floor, as well as a dining room off the kitchen, and a living room or 4th bedroom located at the front. A large loft/bonus/office space is located upstairs, utilizing a separate HVAC system. Old non-functional fireplaces are located in most rooms, along with the original working transom windows and hardware. Sit out on the porch or deck and enjoy the quiet street location just a short walk away from the downtown shops and stores!
