The home features a covered front porch, beautiful hardwood floors, tall ceilings, crown molding, beautiful floor to ceiling windows and built-in bookshelves.
We love that there are many spacious living areas to enjoy in this home. There's an old world parlor, an office area, renovated full bath, and living room complete with brick flooring. The kitchen features brick walls and includes stainless steel appliances. The spacious bedrooms are upstairs and one of them conceals an original hiding spot where the Shugarts hid slaves who were in search of freedom. The Zillow ad also says there is unfinished attic space that could potentially be a 4th bedroom.
