This 19th century home had seen better days when it’s current owners happened upon it. According to it’s listing on Zillow, it was declared inhabitable and was seriously deteriorated. With no landscaping, an ancient roof, broken windows, and chipping paint, it would’ve been difficult for any normal person to see what it could become. The owners who purchased it saw the priceless potential the Queen Anne styled home possessed.
Each and every room was transformed back into its original style while maintaining it’s charm and character. The five bedrooms and three bathrooms look nothing like they did when the home was slowly decaying. Instead, a new paint job, tasteful landscaping, windows, and some elbow grease made this uninhabitable home a stunning architectural masterpiece! Some of the unique attributes to the home are it’s pocket doors and wood floors that feature five different types of wood. The homeowners have added a lot of different modern amenities and have installed a sprinkler system inside and outside of the home. Located in York, Pennsylvania, the home has been used as a Bed and Breakfast. The owners have posted it for sale, so if you’re looking to move into a 2,879 square feet, you’ve found the right place!
1. The Uninhabitable Home Before
Above is an image of the home before it was restored by the current owners. As you can see in this image, the home looked like it was unsafe to enter. There is trash in the front and all of the porches look like they are rotted. The peeling paint and lack of windows makes this home look like it needs to be torn down any tomorrow! Luckily, the homeowners saw the potential this beauty had and restored it to it’s original glory.
