Built in 1875 for the town's esteemed doctor, this home stands as a testament to a bygone era, blending timeless elegance with modern comforts. Boasting 10' ceiling heights & adorned with exquisite 9' solid wood hand-carved doors, this home exudes a rare grandeur rarely found today. Immerse yourself in the intricate details of the past, with much of the original hand-carved woodwork and hardwood floors lovingly preserved.

The bathrooms and kitchen have been tastefully remodeled, seamlessly blending modern amenities with the home's classic aesthetic. Outside, the original iron fence still graces the north and west sides of the double lot (.4 acre), as well as the original post that visitors would tie their horse to, a few nods to the property's storied past. The full basement and attic offer areas for future finish. Whether you're drawn to its historic allure, intrigued by its potential, or simply seeking a one-of-a-kind residence, this home offers a rare opportunity to own a piece of Altoona history.
