Property Description

Located pride of place on a corner plot in Waterloo’s Highland Historic District, this 2-story character filled home dates back over a century to 1909. Steeped in history and rich with original detail you will find so much to appreciate here. The unique interior and exterior appointments, indicative of the early 1900's era, highlight this beautiful home, including its original hardwood floors, built-ins, and detailed crown molding. The oversized living room provides a major focal point, boasting the large wood burning fireplace and flowing seamlessly into the formal dining room with original built-in buffet and large accent windows. The bright and functional kitchen shows off a more modern look with newer cabinets, countertops and backsplash and leads to the tucked away drop zone. Upstairs you will find three spacious bedrooms, including the extra-large master and a full bath. This home may be old, and a little bit worn around the edges but it’s the kind of place that feels like home before you even move your boxes in! LOVE THE WAY YOU LIVE!
