Single Family in Redding

The Gershom Morehouse Home, CA 1744. This charming, Federal-style colonial farmhouse was built by Gershom Morehouse, Sr. in 1744 & was occupied by his son, Gershom Morehouse, Jr. who was a captain in the Revolutionary army. Most picturesque setting on 2.36 pastoral acres within walking distance to historic town buildings & the Redding town green. In fact this notable home once served as the Redding Post Office. Period details include wide board chestnut flooring, exposed beams, & 4 fireplaces. While retaining all of the home's original character & charm, this home has been loving updated for today's lifestyle. Total 1,734 sf on 3 finished floors with 3 bedrooms & 1.5 updated baths, plus detached barn with 676 sf finished in upper studio/office & 3 horse stalls on the lower level. The home's main level offers the most gracious informal stone entry way w/built in mud room system; impressive living room with exposed beams & fireplace w/beehive oven & wood burning stove insert; expansive dining room with exposed beams; updated kitchen featuring stainless steel appliances; and most inviting screened porch overlooking the sprawling property. Many updates include: chimney rebuilt from roof up (2013); new well pump (2014); screened porch rebuilt using Azek premium decking/trim (2017); new kitchen floor & cabinets (2018); full interior/exterior repainting (2018); & updated baths (2016/2018).
