This home was built in 1920 originally as a mill management house. This home is on the National Registry of Historic Places, and listed as part of the Amherst Avenue Historic district (pre E-911 address, 338 Amherst):
The home is a Craftsman Bungalow, and extremely well-built and well-kept. It has New York Dutch influences with its curved roof eves, and an Adirondack influence with multiple sun porches. Each bedroom has a sun porch; there is a porch by both the back and front doors.
The basement of the home has concrete walls, with a glazed brick surround. Spanning the basement is a steel beam. The high ceiling basement is dividend into 3 rooms with concrete walls. The home has an updated 200 amp service.
The first floor has a spacious living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom with laundry, vestibule, and an enclosed sun porch. The home has high ceilings and stunning maple floors. The living room has a fireplace with an inserted woodstove, with a stainless steel line in the flu. The chimney has 3 flues, one attached to a new oil furnace and the other attached to an automatic coal stoker. Winters are comfortable and affordable.
An attractive hardwood stairway winds to the second floor which has 3 bedrooms, again with a sun porch for each. The master bedroom has a sitting room as well. The home has 8 closets. The ceilings of the second floor have been covered with 2 inches of foiled-back foam and sheetrock. The very spacious attic has had insulation added under the floorboards, for a total insulation of R 40.
The cedar and clapboard house has been recently painted. The roof is in excellent condition. All windows have storms including the 8 basement windows. There is spacious garden shed and a large garden, a one-car garage, a deck in the back under the trees, and a fence surrounding the backyard. The home and surrounding beds are well landscaped. This centrally located home in the village is very close to schools and stores; yet, with its cedar hedge on one side of the property, and with a collection of evergreens trees and lilac bushes on the other sides it makes for a cozy and secluded home.
