House Description

Step into the rich tapestry of The Stanly-Bishop House, where history intertwines seamlessly with modern comfort. Nestled in the heart of a city steeped in legacy, this Federal-period gem invites you to embark on a journey through 224 years of architectural evolution. Preserving its historic charm while embracing contemporary updates, this residence offers a glimpse into the past while catering to present-day needs. From the dignified six-panel doors to the intricate moldings adorning each room, every detail speaks of the home's rich heritage.

In the upstairs Master Bedroom, a zero-entry tiled shower, installed in 2022, offers a touch of luxury and accessibility. Discover convenience at every turn with new comfort height toilets installed throughout the residence in 2021. Other updates include the conversion of fireplaces, HVAC furnaces, and major appliances to natural gas, ensuring efficiency and sustainability (dual fuel stove). The kitchen stands as a testament to modern functionality, boasting butcher block and granite countertops (w/ an island). Meanwhile, the built-in Dining Room bookcase and coatrack at the rear door add both style and practicality. But, perhaps one of the most enticing features is the off-street parking, offering convenience in a historic setting. And with a second-floor laundry room and a 3rd floor apartment with a separate entrance, the possibilities are endless, whether you
