Owner/agent:  Held For Resale
Square Feet: 4,030   Lot: 9,100
Asking: $35,000      Annual property tax: $262

The house is set on an unusual triangular lot at the intersection of Chestnut and Pine streets. The earlier part of 125 Chestnut Street was built c. 1860 with a large addition in the third quarter of the nineteenth century. It began as a two-story center-passage-plan house facing Pine Street. That façade features a central, two-story, one-bay porch with a pediment roof and slender, chamfered square post/columns with molded capitals. The original rooms in this section have molded trim, tall square baseboards, and (on the main floor) slate mantels with ornamental veining and incused decoration. The Chestnut Street façade displays several additions made after 1900. The hipped roof of those additions has a porch along the southwest side. The mantel in the rear room on the first floor is Italianate, with applied decorative panels, while the front room has a simple Greek-style pilaster mantels.

This property was most recently used as a quad.  Duplex use allowed, single family suggested.

860 Green Street

Owner/agent:  Under Option
Square Feet: 4,732   Lot: 13,800

In its original form, this building was a two-story single-family house. That house was enlarged and made into four apartment units in the 1920s, but is best suited for a duplex. The front of the dwelling has two-story polygonal bay windows flanking the paired doors to the porches. High casement windows to the rear of the first chimneys also light each of the four front rooms. Extensive exterior work has been completed including a complete reconstruction of the porches that define this dwelling from the street.

Now nearing the completion of its exterior makeover, this three bay clapboard Italianate was constructed in 1899 by wealth tobacconist R.A. Bendall to showcase his success. The front porch still possesses its corbelled cornice, pierced brackets, and ornately-carved Eastlake double doors. The interior has few original features due to its conversion to four apartments in the 1940s.  The top floor units have since been joined into an owner’s apartment which could be made livable very quickly. The architect recommends use of this structure as a duplex, though a single-family conversion or maintenance of the present layout is possible.

814-816 Pine Street

Owner/agent:  Held For Resale
Square Feet: 2,542   Lot: 5,150
Asking: $37,100      Annual property tax: $290

The two-story, clapboard double house anchors the lower section of Pine Street. Very unassuming in detail, the house was constructed in 1890. The porch appears to be of a later date, possibly when “Colonial Revival” was the rage. The “Belgium Block” porch column supports and the smooth wooden columns with Doric capitals seem to imply this. The porch entry has a simple dental molding running along the soffit with corbels flanking the gable end section of the roof. Extensive exterior repairs have been completed with rear shed removed.

Owner/agent:  Off Market
Square Feet: 3,706   Lot: 6,250

Constructed before 1888, the house began its life with a center hall plan. A dining room and kitchen were added almost immediately. A two story ell with lower roofline was added later, probably in the 1920s or 1930s, with the house divided into upper and lower flats. The home is ideally located immediately across from Doyle Thomas / Green Street Park.
