78 Brown Street, Port Hope, ON

I just finished uploading this 2 Storey Detached for sale, 78 Brown Street, Port Hope, ON

This lovely century home is loaded with original heritage features, offers generous room sizes and a great location on a quiet street close to downtown and the river. The foyer has a wonderfully ornate tin ceiling that extends down the lower hallway and into the spacious kitchen. On either side of the foyer you will find wide french doors that lead to the living rooms and dining room. Both of these rooms have large windows and hardwood floors. The kitchen has updated cabinets, a lovely bay window and the stunning tin ceiling. There is an enclosed back porch off the kitchen and a 2 piece bath and laundry room. Both of these area need finishing. Upstairs you will find 4 spacious bedroom, a large bathroom and a 5th bedroom, office or storage room area. Most of the floors here are hardwood. The staircase is a unique design, and like all the woodwork up here, original to the house. The driveway on the south side of the house is shared with the neighbour but there is an older wood frame garage at the rear of the house with room to park. The yard is fully fenced and has some nice perennial gardens. This home does need some updating, but is very liveable and would be a gem if restored. The furnace and electric panel have both been recently updated and some of the windows are new.
