About this little gem: YES, IT IS SMALL. Not like tiny house small but it is cozy. Within walking distance to dining & shopping, this historic treasure is known as The Millers House. Built in 1735 & added onto throughout the years. Lovingly maintained w/ some updates this past year that include new HVAC units, fresh paint, quartz countertops, kitchen hardware, faucets & new toilets (YES there are TWO toilets), one in the first-floor laundry room/powder room is located just off the kitchen, well technically itâs outside connected to the screened porch. The huge private backyard and patio are littered with magnolia leaves, which are beautiful for holiday wreaths but that tree offers a continuous workout (so cancel your gym membership, start your cardio monitor and head out back). There is gated off street parking with you acting as the gate remote & a separate garage w/electric & concrete floor. While in the garage, notice the dusty custom interior wood shutters for the house windows, the current owner wanted more light so they removed them and stored them there. No those really cool old bricks lined up at the garage do not stay nor does the big blue post office box (I donât ask questions). The feedback by the potential buyers has been positive. CUTE, CHARMING, ADORABLE, OH THE CHARACTER. SO WHY HASNâ T THIS HOME SOLD? We donât know for certain why but here are some theories: Theory #1: Botox cannot help these wrinkles. The house is OLD, older than any living person you know on this earth right now. Built in 1735, which is the same year that PAUL REVERE was born (you know the guy famous for saying âthe British are comingâ), it has many of its original features including the windows SO wavy glass and slanted IS the charm. Wide plank wood floors, exposed wood beams, back steps from the primary bedroom to the kitchen so steep a ram would consider it a challenge. DO they allow rams in Easton? Some parts have low (7ft) ceilings (Please note that Paul Revere was 5â6). There are slanted floors, walls, doorways, etc. No one is aware of a structural issue so if crooked makes you antsy, this home may not be for you. Theory #2: Weekend retreat. Looking for a weekend getaway? Great, look no further BUT if you are looking to subsidize the mortgage payment or pick up some extra income if you pay cash, this part of Easton has limitations on STRs. Creative garage living? Theory #3: Privacy. When it comes to the bedrooms this might be tricky. This home has what is known as a functional obsolescence. One bedroom is connected to the other. So, you have some choices here in an urgent bathroom calling. You can use those steep ram stairs and head out of the kitchen into the midnight air and turn right into the powder/laundry room OR you can turn left from the bottom of those stairs, go through the kitchen and head back upstairs to the main bathroom OR if youâre friendly with the guest in the neighboring bedroom, you can streak right through provided they havenât watched too many horror movies and barricaded themselves in that room to keep you out. Theory #4: Height Challenge. Some people may just be too tall for this place. Although the previous resident was 6â3, we commend him for not knocking himself out on the hall stairway. A few too many drinks from the amazing restaurants within walking distance and you may find yourself blacked out from more than the alcohol. Theory #5: Waterfront/Waterview. The house is not waterfront or water view. The only water related object that you will see from this home is a view of the water tower. Theory #6:THE PRICE. Sure, this is why this is last as all of the feedback states otherwise. PRICED RIGHT. In an attempt to test this theory, CHECK OUT THE IMPROVED PRICE-ending in 735. Itâs the final FINAL reduction really this time. If it was the price, I expect offers flying in now. Weâll see. Maybe I can shout "The offers are coming; the offers are coming".
