Why You'll Love It

(ACCEPTED OFFER WITH CONTINGENCIES) Step back in time to the grandeur and elegance of the Victorian home era and own a part of Hillsboro's history.  This home was originally owned by Edward Hammer, one of Hillsboro's founding families. Built in 1896, the house itself is believed to be a George F. Barber design #33 (buyers should do their due diligence to verify design number and architect).  George F. Barber was a pioneer in  marketing his homes through mail-order catalogs, which is how this home's design was marketed.  Homes like these are rare and having one so well maintained is even rarer. The sellers have spent a lot of time and money updating and improving this home. Their investment will be a new buyer's opportunity. Some of these improvements include a new roof, painting, new windows, ceilings, 200-amp service electrical upgrade, new sidewalks, refinished hardwood floors and a renovated attic space with a 100-amp electrical panel in 2007. More recent updates include a new driveway, the front porch and pier, new garage doors, updated kitchen appliances, renovated bathrooms and much more.  A complete list of the seller's updates and improvements is available. This is a lakefront home & the City of Hillsboro hopes to have the repaired dam finished, lake bottom dredged, and the lake restored  by the end of 2020 , but it might take until spring of 2021 due to Covid-19 delays.  The large rooms, refinished hardwood floors, original woodwork, sunroom addition &, ample living space with its large windows, and private patio and dock all add to the living experience. Housing is in limited supply in Hillsboro. Be sure to view the pictures and videos to get a real feel for this unique property. Once the lake is reestablished, this gem will shine even brighter. (Have you ever considered starting a day care center or foster family care business, or establishing a professional home office? Zoning allows for these uses at this property. A conditional use permit would allow for a bed and breakfast Inn.) Buyers should verify with the City of Hillsboro their intended business plans to verify zoning allowance.
