This historic single-family home, dating back to the 1930s, carries a rich historical legacy in the Josephine community of Berryville. Spanning 1,500 square feet, this residence has seen significant updates and improvements, making it a blend of old-world charm and modern comfort. An inviting front porch with room for a swing and rocking chairs welcomes you to this lovely home featuring 4 bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms, that has been meticulously cared for and boasts fresh neutral paint throughout. Some new windows have been installed to enhance energy efficiency and aesthetics creating a light filled atmosphere. The homeowner has invested substantial effort into preserving its character and functionality, evident in details like the wood-burning stove and fireplace. A new furnace with two zone heat pump in 2017, upgraded insulation, and fresh drywall have been added, ensuring comfort and efficiency, and a substantial Lenox air conditioning system keeps the interiors cool. The power system has been modernized for convenience with an upgraded electrical system featuring 220 power and modern upgraded wiring from the box. The property lies near railroad tracks in the historic Josephine community, adding to its unique character and providing a glimpse into its historical context. A double liner chimney was added to the left side about 7 years ago, along with a wood stove in 2016. The original chimney has been well-maintained and properly pointed up. The light filled kitchen with newer window features an abundance of cabinet and countertop space and a removable Butcher block island, while original revolving doors maintain its original charm. The main bathroom was tastefully updated in 2021-22 and features custom hand laid tile, blending modern amenities with the home's historic appeal. The property boasts century-old boxwood bushes, an American cherry tree, and a European pear tree, and a large level fenced yard dotted with majestic trees creating a lush outdoor oasis. A lovely tulip garden and daisies to the right of the house add a colorful touch. The roof, made of durable metal, was repainted a few years ago. New fascia and soffit (2-3 years ago) and metal siding, along with metal accents around the windows (2-3 years ago), contribute to the home's longevity and aesthetic appeal. Recent improvements by the county include the replacement of the sewer main, upgrading it from iron pipe to durable C PVC. Additionally, the addition of public sewer and new sidewalks make it a very walkable neighborhood. Nestled on a dead-end road, this home offers a serene and private atmosphere. To one side is a vacant lot, and the property itself includes sheds for storage. Don't miss the opportunity to own a piece of history in this unique and well-maintained property.
