Spacious 3-level home near downtown Richwood. Living and family rooms, 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, finished attic, fenced swimming pool. This historic, comfortable 4,200+/- sq ft home with a wraparound porch occupies a corner lot within walking distance of downtown Richwood. Built in 1902 and frequently updated, it features hardwood flooring, a large living/dining room, a birch-paneled family room, an office, a second-floor laundry, an attached garage and workshop, and a large yard with a fenced pool and garden plot.

A brick sidewalk leads to the covered front porch, which wraps around one side of the house and affords plenty of room for rockers and a porch swing. The decorative front door opens into a large entry hall with a chandelier. Glass pocket doors slide open from the entry to reveal the spacious living/dining room. The living area has a gas fireplace with a wood mantel, several large windows including one with a window seat, and wainscotting. This space flows into the formal dining area. Both the living and dining areas have chandeliers.

The kitchen has white cabinetry, burgundy laminate counters, a tile backsplash, a granite composite sink, counter seating for 2-3, and a work island with storage space. The flooring is hardwood and the kitchen has a ceiling fan. Appliances include a Samsung gas range, a wall-mounted Kitchen Aid microwave, a Samsung refrigerator with a freezer drawer, and a Maytag dishwasher.

The family room, tucked in the back of the home just beyond the kitchen, features exceptionally attractive red birch tongue-and-groove paneling and windows on two sides. The family room opens to a porch with removable screens/windows which enable converting the porch into a sunroom in the winter months. The porch can also be accessed from the living room. Also in the back of the home, near the family room, is a small office with wood wainscotting and a tiled floor.

The main level includes a full bath with a shower.

An oak stairway with a carpet runner leads to the home's second level, where four bedrooms and two full baths open to a central hallway. The master suite has a ceiling fan, hardwood flooring, and two louvered closets. The master bath has a walk-in shower, laminate flooring, and a vanity with a cultured marble sink.

Bedroom 2 is spacious, has 4 windows, 2 louvered closets, hardwood flooring and a ceiling fan. Bedroom 3 is carpeted, has 2 windows, a louvered closet, and a ceiling fan. Bedroom 4 has hardwood flooring, 2 windows, a double closet, and a ceiling fan.

The shared second bathroom has a tub, a vanity with a composite marble sink, and plenty of storage for linens and towels.

The laundry room is also on this level. The laundry room is equipped with a Whirlpool washer, an LG dryer, storage cabinetry, and it has space for ironing.

The third floor is accessed via a carpeted stairwell. This attic level is finished with hardwood flooring and paneling. It has four rooms that offer potential for any number of uses, including additional bedrooms  essentially a bonus space with interesting ceiling angles. Two of the rooms have closets, and a third features an eye-catching wall of built-in drawers.

The home includes a partial basement that is a utility area.

The enclosed breezeway/mudroom connects the three-bay garage to the house. Two bays are designated for vehicles, while the third bay has been redesigned as a large workshop.

An exceptionally desirable outdoor feature is the attractive in-ground swimming pool, discretely fenced for privacy and not visible to passersby. The pool has decorative tilework around its perimeter, and is surrounded by a patio/sunning area.

The home is surrounded by mature landscaping, and the yard includes a garden plot and raised beds.

This beautiful, spacious home was originally constructed in 1902 for Captain Henry W. Armstrong, superintendent of the Cherry River Boom and Lumber Company, using the highest quality materials available. It has many extras and has been well-kept and lovingly cared for by its current owners for over five decades.
