You can almost feel the history in “The Doebbler House” which was originally built in the late 1850’s. Today this lovingly restored pioneer stone homestead shines as a wonderful architectural example of early German craftsmanship. The authentic restoration of the original limestone home exudes charm and comfort while keeping its traditional roots. Through out the home you will find many of the original hardwood floors along with original door jams and doors; just about anything that was able to be saved was saved during the restoration. Home offers two living spaces, the first features the original fireplace and awesome exposed wooden beams which flow together with the charming dining area. The spacious 2nd living area is 24’x19′ boasting high ceilings, its own fireplace and lots of storage. You will love the exposed rock which you find throughout the home including in the inviting master bedroom, featuring vaulted ceiling with reclaimed bead board ceiling plus his and her closets. The master bath used to be the horse stable, but now features a claw foot tub, walk in shower and his and her sinks. Make your own memories preparing meals or visiting with friends in the kitchen which features custom cabinets made from reclaimed barn wood, kitchen island and stainless steel appliances; or share a cup of coffee in the breakfast nook located adjacent the kitchen. Upstairs you will find two additional bedrooms, exposed rock walls, high ceilings, and visible cedar plank ceiling runners.
