Our Victorian Wisconsin home for sale

As with any career move there are pros and cons. This has never been truer for Sam and me when we mulled over my departure from Lands' End and imminent jump to PayPal. One of those cons is having to sell our 100-year-old Victorian home in Mineral Point, Wisconsin. It will no doubt be sad to close the door on what was an amazing first home. Granted, we've only been squatting out our current residence for a mere 3-years, but for Sam, it has been the longest time she's spent in one place since her childhood. Having to sell this home will no doubt be sombody's gain. So, if you know anybody who is interested in a century-old beauty, feel free to pass them our realtor's way. This post is also an opportunity for us to share our home with those that haven't had an opportunity to see past pictures or the means to stop by and say Hi! So without further ado here is a write-up of our home, courtesy of our agent, accompanied by a few interior pics of casa de Janney for visuals.

Do you dream of living in a pristine Victorian home but require practicality as well as function? Do you crave original woodwork but aren't willing to sacrifice the convenience of a modern kitchen, finished basement and new drywall? If so, this home is for you. A gorgeous 100+ year old Victorian in Mineral Point, just blocks from downtown restaurants and shops. Original oak floors, built-in shelves and hutches-you just can't find a new home that was built with such attention to detail. You'll love to cook in this large remodeled kitchen with stainless steel appliances and original GE tin cabinets. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a beautiful deck and garden make this practical as well as charming. And with a new water heater and new central air system you'll be cozy and comfy all year round. Don't wait-your dream home won't be available forever!
