This historic home is a local landmark for it’s beauty and history. The Sibbitts are a ranching family whose ranching roots run deep in the area, with family ownership spanning all the way back into the 1800s. This home was moved from the Sibbitt Ranch in the early 1900s on logs with horses! Hyannis was, at the time, the “Richest Town in America”, and this home was one of the finest. It has many excellent features that were not typical of the time period, such as extra large closets and large and numerous windows. The ceilings on the main floor were built to be 10’ tall. They were lowered for acoustics at some point, but could easily be brought back to their full height. The majority of the home has wonderful original wood floors that have been well cared for. The bathrooms and kitchen have been updated. The home was in great need of some tender loving care, and the current Owner’s investment of money, time, and sweat equity is plain to see.
The predominant feature of the exterior of the home are the large front and back porches. The front porch is wide and welcoming, as is the original oak door with it’s beautiful etched glass window. The enclosed back porch is 35’ feet, making a wonderful, bright space to enjoy a cup of coffee all year round. A large handicap ramp has been installed leading up to the back porch. The current owners have done a wonderful job of landscaping, with perennials, flowering shrubs, apple trees, and a 14’ x 35’ vegetable garden. A 14’ x 27’ dog run will keep your pets safe. The garage has extra storage cabinets, and a place to hook up a gas grill with an exhaust fan.
The home has most recently been used as a bed and breakfast and a restaurant, which explains the many individual dining tables in the pictures! However, this home was intended as a spacious home for a large family, and would easily convert back to this use. The home has an unusual amount of storage space for a home of this time period, with a large pantry off the kitchen and large built-in cabinets. The basement has 10’ ceilings and large casement windows. There is ample storage in the utility room, and a large canning room with a long work bench and additional storage cabinets. A basement apartment features two bedrooms and a bonus room that could be used as a third bedroom or office. It also has a root cellar! The apartment has its own entrance, and is on a separate propane heater, so it could be easily rented out for extra income.
