Monthly Estimate* How much can I afford?

A classic farmhouse on the edge of town in 1860, this home sat on Riverside Drive for decades before - in the late 1890s - it was picked up and moved straight back northeast, reorienting it to Linden Street as Evansville grew around it. It was then that a front porch was added with influence from the mansard craze of the French Second Empire style. The new horizontally aligned front facade gives the home a distinct I-house look, connecting passers by to the early Victorian period. People wept over the Civil War within these walls, and read accounts of the First World War and listened to fireside chats about the New Deal, and celebrated the end of World War II. In the late 1970s, the home was opened up with an extensive late 20th century designer upgrade. Walls were removed bringing a distinctive contemporary touch and more modern flow, yet the home's original architecture respectfully remains in place. The original stairwell curves upward as wonderful light graces the home through floor-length windows adorned with custom draperies. A shaker style hickory kitchen with porcelain counters and a formal dining room anchor your entertaining. The large formal sitting area and entry rooms present multiple arrangements for accommodating guests, friends, and family - or just yourself. Upstairs, a large master suite rests at the front of the home and connects to a second bedroom equal is size and architectural stature. The rear of the home features a third bedroom, a den currently used as a dressing room, and another full bathroom with laundry area. Peace of mind endures with basement waterproofing, an easy to maintain landscaped patio yard, and a freshly painted exterior. Warm colors throughout soothe like therapy. Let this home ease you into Evansville's Riverside Historic District and thriving Haynie's Corner Arts District scene, where perhaps the only thing that's missing is you.
