Historic homes are magnificent structures, and if you buy one, you could make it even greater.
You could renovate the home to bring it up to modern standards, both aesthetically and functionally.
Common upgrades include new siding and flooring, as well as high-tech fixtures and appliances.
You could also restore the historic home to its original beauty.
Fixing or recreating classic features will transport you to another time period.
Of course, you could combine renovation and restoration to get the best of both worlds.
That means modernizing some home systems and appliances, but keeping the most striking historic features intact.
