The original home of artist Hazel Rochester, is now a mixture of old and new. There are four bedrooms and two full baths on the second floor with two stairwells (one on each end). It’s a large house, about 3K sq ft. There was a fifth bedroom on the first floor that we use as a media room. It can still house humans if necessary. One bath upstairs features a clawfoot tub for bathing (not showers). There are two dining rooms, one being more formal with seating for eight.
Rochester House is close to restaurants, trails, family-friendly activities, and lake beaches. It's convenient to many destinations, including LVRT, Hill Farmstead, Caspian Lake (beach) and Lost Nation Brewing. A short walk to the Farmer's Market, grocery stores, and most village restaurants. Downtown is .7 miles, a 15 min walk. This may be too far in the winter. There is a city plowed sidewalk all the way during snow season if needed. The House of Pizza is only .2 miles (two blocks).
This house is in the village. It is not a secluded country location. There is a neighboring house close on one side. The road has a total of three houses on it. It's close to the main road through town.
There is no air conditioning as summers are usually cool. Each bedroom is equipped with a box fan to cool down the rooms in the evening if there is a rare heat wave. The home is heated and stays warm during the winter.
