Description“The broad sloping roofs with shady overhangs signify the very idea of shelter. The generous front porch blurs the lines between indoors and out. And behind each element lies a hint of a craftsman plying his art”. Robert Winter Rarely offered in historic Central, a true craftsman style bungalow home (approx. 1600 square feet) built in approximately 1912, by Central’s historical figure; Mr. Ramseur. This lovely home is located on a quiet cul-de-sac, but still close to downtown restaurants and shops. Features, 9’6” ceilings, deep, rich wood columns differentiating the living areas; the Inglenook smoking room, the living room and a grand dining room. The living spaces are further accented with bookcases that have leaded glass, Craftsman style wainscoting, and picture rail molding. The home features hardwood floors with beautiful oak floors in the front of the house (where guests would notice) and pine wood floors in the private quarters of the home. The dining room features a room-length built in china cabinet and the dining room floor still has the location where a toe plate/bell ringer summoned hired help from their private living quarters. Closets have transoms to allow natural light into the closet spaces and a passive solar heating design with creative placement of landscaping finish out the beauty of this unique home. The bright and airy butler’s pantry is spacious and has another large built in for the kitchen and additional dining room storage. The kitchen has a pantry, a porch, and close to an oversized hall closet. The home has 2 bedrooms, and 1 and a half baths. However, when central air conditioning was added to the home and the master bathroom updated, the plumbing, heating and air conditioning was plumbed to the attic where a spacious master suite could be easily added. The master suite has large windows, allowing you to embrace the fall colors and springtime beauty and allows plenty of natural light into the room. The master suite has built-ins, and an additional closet for storage. The basement boasts high ceilings, and a walk out which could be transformed into a spacious apartment or an In Law suite. The finial accenting the stairway’s descent to the basement is reminiscent of an earlier time. Outside the front door are wide concrete porches with grand columns that help to keep the house cool and lead to the almost 3 acres behind the home (acreage has a separate tax id and can be subdivided for additional home sites). There is a creek on the wooded end of the property. The circular driveway leads you to a separate artist studio that has electricity, a large deck for sipping ice tea and dreaming about your next project and a separate outside room for storage of outdoor equipment and tools. This home is perfect. Perfect for you and your dreams….
