A home with ties to the Civil War has hit the real estate market in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania for $825,000.
The six-bedroom, five-bathroom residence was built in 1837 by Herman Haupt, a renowned civil engineer who served as a Union general in the Civil War, but didn’t fight at the Battle of Gettysburg, Gettysburg Times reported.
The house is located on a 1.67-acre lot on the edge of Gettysburg National Battlefield and is “a beautiful blend of historic elegance and modern upgrades,” the listing on Zillow.com says.
The house was slightly renovated a couple years ago by owners Andy and Charity Heaton, who sold the place in 2021, according to the 5,189-square-foot home’s property details on Zillow.
“We didn’t have time to do extensive renovations,” Andy told Gettysburg Times. “We were looking for something old, but that had been restored.”
Features inside the Victorian include:
Wide plank flooring
Four gas fireplaces
Gourmet eat-in kitchen
Stained glass windows
“One of only nine structures in Gettysburg with Civil War cannonballs embedded in its walls!” the listing says.
“Best of both worlds — enjoy the National Park just outside your door, perfect for evening walks and bike rides…but also within Historic Gettysburg Borough — walk to shops, restaurants, grocery, Gettysburg Rec Park, library, and all of downtown.”
Gen. Haupt was in charge of railroad construction and served as the U.S. Railroad Superintendent during the Civil War, according to Mr. Lincoln’s White House.
