Vining, is Located in the heart of Historic New Castle. This Empire Period on the National Register of Historical Places has undergone a full historic renovation, spanning over a year. No expense was spared in this renovation to include period correct preservation and all high end fixtures and appliances.

All of the work is complete for you to entertain your guest and enjoy your fully custom, gourmet chef's kitchen, with an open living, dining and kitchen floor plan to create seating for 28 plus. Upon arriving to the property, you are struck by the original shutters, shutter doors, entry door and lock.

The entry includes a first floor master suite with a full custom bath with separate entry to the hallway for guests. Every inch of pluming in the home is brand new, completed in June 2020 and includes a state of the art manifold to individually shut off any valve in the home. Follow the entryway and open the original interior shutter doors to reveal the open living space with tons of period character. An empire period marble fireplace mantel, period tin tile ceilings, early 1800s barn wood creating a box beam with posts, original doors with locks, original interior trim, 14 inch baseboards, early barn wood open shelving, restored original random width pine floors, and much more to discover.

Relax day or night in your proper large English garden, spanning all the way to 4th street with a gate and convenient additional street parking. This large and private back yard Oasis begins with a pergola surrounded in shade by a mature trumpet vine. A feature only 30 plus years of growth can provide. The garden is adorned with bountiful flowers, English ivy a pond with a lion faced fountain, two seating areas, brick pathways, and hard wired landscape lighting throughout. Hummingbirds have been seen on the trumpet vine, frogs in the pond and plenty of birds in the bird bath. Back into the home, the original stair case lined with chair rail and rope wainscoting, leads to your second custom full bath. To the left, enter into your second floor large master suite complete with a functioning fireplace, elevated ceilings and a barn sliding door for the full bath. Across the hall are two more bedrooms with original features and an original pocket door separating the two.

A gentlemen quarters or ladies lounge awaits in the basement, surrounded by flagstone foundation. Perfect for the wine or cigar enthusiasts. A large area of the basement perfect for storage includes an egress staircase leading to your private shed for easy access and use. The seller is on the waiting list for a local masonry company to properly seal and paint the basement quarters. A credit will be provided at settlement to do so. The seller is willing to sell all of the furniture, decor and artwork, to be included in the sale at an additional price. Schedule your appointment now to take advantage of this rare opportunity.
