Virtual Open House: Birmingham
Preservationists take note – one of the oldest homes in Birmingham is on the market!
This week in Birmingham, we had the opportunity to create a virtual tour of the oldest privately-owned property in town, located at 119 S. Adams Road on the southeast corner of Adams and Maple Roads.
Known as the Ebersole House, this traditional brick home was originally built in the 1840's and oddly enough has never been designated an historic site. As a result, a new purchaser will have options: remodel, demolish the home and rebuild or tear down the home and sell the two lots on which it sits. At more than half an acre, the lots are unusually large for Birmingham, and the backyard is expansive with mature trees.
This classic two-story colonial is listed at $250,000 (estimated to be the value of the land alone), has six bedrooms, three full baths and one powder room. The home is large, measuring 3,239 square feet, and features two enclosed porches, nine foot ceilings and generously sized rooms throughout. The basement is unfinished and has had recent structural foundation repair work completed. Although the home needs work (in particular new windows), it could be a dream project for someone dedicated to preserving its history.
If you'd like a private tour of this home or more information about the property, contact listing agent Gigi Debbrecht of Max Broock Realtors in Birmingham by calling 248-882-9906.
