This home is one of a kind!!  It has been in the same family since 1914 and the time has arrived when there will be a new owner and hopefully it will be in the new owner’s family for another 106 years!


Sheyenne is in Eddy County, Central North Dakota and is in a route of the Central Flyway for waterfowl migration.  There is plenty of upland game as well as deer for the avid sportsman.  It is near some of the best walleye fishing in the Midwest, Devils Lake the heart of North Dakota fishing country is about 30 minutes away, and if you need fish for supper just stop at the Warsing Dam which is on the Sheyenne River and adjacent to the city of Sheyenne. 


This dynamic 3 bedroom home has been maintained perfectly for all these years with the original old woodwork possibly looking better than it did back in 1914.  The tender loving care that has gone into keeping this home so perfect certainly is a reflection on the long family history that goes with it.


As you enter the back entry there is an enclosed porch before you enter into the kitchen, the original old door going into the kitchen has a built in doorbell that functions.  The kitchen

has a bit of nostalgia since the old hand pump that was used to pump water to the kitchen for their household needs is still in the kitchen, however it is nonfunctioning.  The kitchen appliances were replaced in 2010 and will stay for the new owner.

 

From the kitchen you can enter either the formal dining room or the entrance to the upper lev More

From the kitchen you can enter either the formal dining room or the entrance to the upper level, sunporch, and living room.

 

The formal dining room has beautiful hardwood floors with the room trimmed with the original old woodwork.  There is a bay window with a sitting ledge, the upper portion of the window is finished with beveled lead glass.  There is a plate ledge surrounding the room where you can display some of your favorite china.  This room is large enough to host many family gatherings where you will be the head cook.  There are beautiful pocket doors separating the dining room from the living room.

 

The living room is exactly as you would expect it to be with the beautiful woodwork and hardwood floors, there are columns on each side of the large door opening which takes you to the sunporch or upper level of the home. There is a small storage area at the bottom of each column with leaded glass in the doors, just beautiful and matches the other lead glass found throughout the home.  This certainly is an eye-catching area of the home along with the glistening pocket doors that you use to enter the living room from the dining room.

 

As you leave the living room there is a hallway that will take you to either the sunporch or upper level.  The sunporch had been a front porch and has been converted into a wonderful three seasons room.  The entire room is covered with tin and certainly makes this room the place where you will be spending many hours especially during the sunny days of summer.  The room is bright, cozy  and comfortable, what a place to read a good book or maybe even work on a puzzle as you pass through.  The second entrance to the home is in this room as well.

 

As you enter the second level there is an open staircase with a well polished railing that has been used since 1914 and still looks as it did the first time it was used 100 years ago.  There are three bedrooms and a bath upstairs.  The floors are stained pine and look wonderful.  The bedrooms are nice size and the steps going from the upstairs level to the main floor are not steep and are carpeted, the railing certainly dresses things up.

 

The basement is a typical older home basement, it is dry and does not get wet.  The heating system is a hot water boiler which operates on natural gas,  the home has radiators which is a great source of heat and very clean as there is no dust blowing around from a forced air heating system.  The home has a 100-amp electrical breaker service.  The basement has a bathroom stool which was new a few years ago, this is also where the washer and dryer are located, they will remain with the home for the new owner.  The basement has high ceilings so easy to walk around, at one time many years ago when our transportation system was not what it is today, high school students would stay in town during the winter months and stayed in the basement.

 

The exterior has wood siding which was painted in 2018 and new shingles in 2016, there were combination storm windows and screens installed in 2010 so there is no need to remove the windows during the winter season.  There is a garage that at one time had been a barn, there is still a second level in the garage which still has the old sliding door for access.  There is a paved driveway to the garage.  The home is surrounded by a well groomed hedge and a number of mature trees.  There is a well near the garage that is not used and there is also an outdoor cistern that at one time had been the source of water for the family home.  This is no longer functional as well.

 

This home is the darling of old homes and you may never find that in any other home that you look at.
