Home for sale in Albany, Oregon!... 1908 Craftsman Bungalow!
If you are going to be in Albany for our Annual Tour of Historic Homes and Gardens on Saturday, July 28th, let me know! We'd love to give you a tour of our B & B!
A little bit of history:
Charles and Catherine Pfeiffer built the Craftsman Bungalow in 1908 and lived out their remaining years here. Since then, it has been a private home until 2008 when we turned this robust bungalow in to a B & B. Our guest rooms are large and each has a private bathroom. The basement is 2k sq ft with two bedrooms, a newly renovated bathroom, laundry room, summer pantry and a very large shop with walk out.
The upstairs/third floor has three guest rooms, one of which could be considered a master bedroom, two bathrooms with a landing and a railed porch. There is 12ft. wide hall area that houses the guest fridge, a settee and bookshelves.
The main floor consists of another master bedroom complete with a full bathroom that is centered between the small front parlor and the bedroom. The small front parlor is now being used as a large office.
Continuing on the main floor, the big parlor/living room and large formal dining room boasts the original fir and white oak hardwoods, original leaded and stained glass built-in hutch and coffered ceiling. The TV room or den, two very large closets, powder room and newly remodeled kitchen complete this level. The owners found the original fir hardwood kitchen floors under 5 layers of tiles, particle board and linoleum. They had never been sanded or treated until now. They certainly make the kitchen the most spectacular room in the house. Note: high baseboards and thick moldings original to the home adorn each room on the main level.
The lot is moderate size for a downtown lot and the home sits close to other historic homes in the Monteith District of Albany, OR. Trees, native plants and grasses add to the grandeur of the Craftsman Bungalow organic "feel" and the complete package exudes all that is of the period.
