Description

Significant Price Reduction! A nicely restored, 232 year old stately brick house at 22 North Main Street. This historic home was built in 1790 by Mercersburg+GGs local cabinet maker, Hugh Cowan, and is listed in the Historic Register. This is one of the few houses built in that era that is still standing and in lovely condition. It has recently been tastefully and comfortably restored. This attractive home has approximately 3,260 square feet, with 10 foot high ceilings in each room. It has 9 spacious rooms with 8 working fireplaces which are enhanced by artfully crafted wooden mantels. There are 2 full baths and 2 half-baths. The 5th bedroom is a spacious room located above the 2nd floor front bedrooms. The vaulted ceiling features the original beams which are lacquered and tastefully exposed. The entryway reveals a lovely staircase featuring turned balusters with detailed scrollwork. The chair rail that abounds throughout the house provides a second handrail for all the staircases. Well-kept yellow pine floors grace all the rooms on the first and second floors. Crown moulding adds a colonial charm to all the rooms. The kitchen has been modernized with new cabinets, stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, but retains the colonial look with the original large brick rustic fireplace, a focal point in the kitchen. The outermost bricks of this early fireplace are encased with an attractive wooden facade with mantel shelf. A back latched kitchen door opens to the quaint curving +G+servant stairway+G- that leads to an upstairs bedroom, a common feature in homes of that period. Another door opens to the long porch that overlooks the nearest garden, offering a pleasant view of the picturesque garden and walkways throughout. The lovely backyard garden boasts a large stone patio, recently built by the present owner. There are three brick patios connected by brick pathways, one of which winds through a wooden pergola entwined with trained wisteria vines. Between two of the brick patios stands the rustic smokehouse with ample storage space. It also comes equipped with electricity. To the rear of the garden is the two-level carriage house which is covered with the original German siding and sits atop a stone foundation. The carriage house also has electricity throughout. 22 N. Main Street is within easy walking distance of restaurants, coffee shops, ice cream shop, banks, churches, Post Office, elementary school, park, town hall, courthouse, police station and so much more. Mercersburg is a pleasant historic small town you will love to call home.
