Just minutes from downtown Chelsea, MI, on 3.5+ acres, this 1841 historic home will take you back in time in character but not in function.  Just like other settlers of the Chelsea area, the original homeowner built this home on land granted by the U.S. Government in 1837 under President Martin VanBuren.

The current homeowner has maintained, inside and out, features that speak to it’s past – hardwood floors, trim, field-stone chimney, and stamped tin roof – while bringing the electrical, plumbing and heating (3 yr old furnace) up-to-date.

The kitchen has been updated with modern conveniences while the original cabinets – right down to the chimney cupboard – give a nod to the past and provide plenty of storage.

The outdoor garden area, with fruit trees seemingly as old as the house, is the perfect for place for entertaining – a large gathering table is already in place ready to host family and friends.

One original outbuilding has an old stone forge and the ice house still exists!  Historical Renovation Funds (federal and state) and federal tax credits may be available for further restoration and/or renovation of this beautiful homestead.  

If you love history, you must see this home for yourself.
