When Jacob Culp bought the plot of land in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, that became the site of his blacksmith shop, he might not have envisioned that eventually, his heirs would build a home on it in 1892, near the town’s Methodist church.
And he definitely likely didn’t envision that the house would be listed in 2020, and would still be known as the former home of his daughter – Barbara Catherine Culp.
But indeed, the B. Catherine Culp House, a brick two-story in the heart of downtown Gettysburg, not only still stands, but has been restored and maintained with its historic place in the town in mind.
The 2,544-square-foot home still has its front and rear covered porches, and its front and rear staircases, as well as its wood floors, ornate period-perfect details, high ceilings, crown molding and chair rail, and the built-ins.
But it also still has some modern creature comforts as well, including a remodeled kitchen with cabinets that reach to the ceiling, a gas range and oven, double sink with a high-mount faucet, and a peninsula.
It has a first-floor laundry room, and a half bath, and the second floor has central air conditioning, too.
Outside, a fenced backyard is private, and has plenty of space to relax – but is also a bit of a blank slate, which means a gardening enthusiast could find a lot of enjoyment in plotting out a true oasis.
And even better, the three-bedroom, two-bath home is about a block from Lincoln Square, and is an easy walk to all kinds of shopping and dining – and a quick drive to the historic Gettysburg battlefield.
The home is priced at $250,000, and is listed by Colleen Lingle with All Ameridream Real Estate. Want to see more? Click here.
