Make it your own!

The Stein House, constructed by Seneca builder Henry Bernard Woltkamp, and built for Peter P. and Frances Woltkamp Stein, incorporates an open, free flowing floor plan with well lit, spacious rooms.

An open foyer and living room with Craftsman and Classically inspired woodwork welcome you from the front door. The kitchen and dining room stand beyond the front rooms. Circulation allows for an easy, room-to-room access.

The imposing foyer staircase leads to a small center hall, radiating off four bedrooms and a bath. The doorway to the attic also leads from this center hallway.

The attic is finished but still maintains wide open space. The basement contains the furnace room, 2nd kitchen, and lots of room for recreation or storage. A laundry chute runs from the second floor hallway down to the first floor kitchen to the basement.

The house has been wired for electricity and some of the original light fixtures and switches remain.
