Property Description

43 E. Main Street, proudly on display in Historic Strasburg! This Circa 1843 home with detached 2 car garage was originally a 2-room log structure. It has been lovingly cared for and enjoyed for generations in the same family for over One Hundred years. Over time, the house was expanded to become a spacious 4-bedroom, 2-bath dwelling with approximately 2,082 sq. ft. of living space. Rich in history, this sturdy and well-maintained home was built to last! Constructed with 4~x 6~ studs, deep window sills, plaster walls, wood floors and solid wood interior doors and iron hardware. These details reveal and exemplify the unique quality found throughout every room, and not typically found in current day construction. Historic records show this charming dwelling was once an Ice Cream Shop and a Telegraph office. It has since been graciously updated with modern amenities such as Stainless Appliances, custom Cherry Cabinetry, a large pantry for storage, as well as a convenient center island in the roomy Kitchen. Your family can relax in comfort, afforded by the newer Central Air and Heating systems. And, adding to the long list of improvements, the current owners have installed a 50-year Metal Roof and new gutters, added fresh insulation throughout most of the house, and replaced all the exterior clapboard siding, board by board! The 1st floor windows were painstakingly upgraded with double pane glass, taking care to preserve the wooden window sashes to maintain the historic character. A new, 200 AMP, Electrical Panel was installed, bathrooms are both recently updated and upstairs rooms freshly painted. The Sellers provided a more detailed account of improvements and dates work was completed, which can be found in the documents tab. The level yard is spacious and fenced. The oversized 2 car Garage is extra deep, with plenty of space for a work bench and storage. Off street parking for several cars is also available. Just a few blocks from the square, and an easy walk to the Creamery, one of the best places around for Ice Cream these days. Call your agent today for an appointment to discover this wonderful home for yourself and seize an opportunity to own a piece of history!
