About 65 W MAIN Street

Incredible home conveniently located on Main Street in Adamstown. The property has so much opportunity for large & extended families or exciting B & B. Storybook: The Stoudts purchased their home in the early 1970s & lived in the right side of the home next to a family of five. It was built as a duplex with mirroring sides and common entrance way & shared porch. The original home was built in 1912 . All the Mahogany wood in the home was coated with a thick varnish or painted white, the floors were covered with wall-to-wall blue shag carpeting throughout. After living in the home for 2 & 1/2 years Carol and Ed decided to remodel to fit their expanding family. In 1977 they tore down the wall between the two homes opening it up with a decorative entryway and grand staircase. Ed began his task of restoring all of the wood in the home. This two year labor of love took over 90 gallons of Zip Strip and a few hours every day before he began his day of job of growing a restaurant business. After the front of the house was complete, it was time to upgrade to a large main floor kitchen . The original house had two small kitchens in the basement of the home with dumbwaiters serving the main floor. The new Kitchen was moved to the main floor with an adjacent playroom. The counters tops were butcher block, there was a window box for fresh herbs, open cabinets, hanging pots, Spanish tile floor, and an old-fashioned antique wood stove. Construction was halted December 13th 1977 due to a fire at the restaurant and the Construction crew working on the house was needed at the restaurant to rebuild for the reopening on Feb 3rd 1978 a day before Carol went into labor and their third child was born. In 1979 Stoudts opened their first Octoberfest this busy family also decided it was time to make renovations to their outdoor area of their home. A triple layer wooden deck and carport was built and underground vinyl pool was installed. The house was alive with young children and lots of entertaining. Next on the Agenda in the early 1980s was the bathroom. upgrades were made to include a jacuzzi room that connected both bathrooms. A modern built-in shower with double sinks sat adjacent to the original pink porcelain bathtub and fixtures. A Walk-in closet was added to master bedroom as well as a large closet in the laundry room for seasonal clothing, ball gowns, and shelves for all the antique linens carol was collecting from Sundays in their mall. In 1987 Carol opened Stoudts brewery becoming the first female brewer since prohibition and at home another round of renovations. Kitchen and ground level family room both opened up by removing centralized staircase to the corner of the room optimizing space. With the families love of cooking and stainless steel the Commercial kitchen equipment was installed, white cabinets with black slate counter tops, French doors from the kitchen leading to a brand-new balcony overlooking the backyard. Massive deck was removed creating a more natural oasis which included the koi pond, concrete pool, and cobblestone driveway that lead to a three car garage. The pond is still in existence and some of Eds fish in the pond are over 20 years old. The pool has since been upgraded to salt water. July 2010 all windows were replaced with Pella windows. A few years later Carol and Ed open the fourth floor adding plumbing creating 4 bedrooms each with a private baths perfect for entertaining overnight family and guests. With all the changes Ed and Carol have always retained the workmanship and integrity that this amazing home was built with it is their hope that the many years of joy that their family has shared in this home will be continued with adventures and lifes joys and innovations for many years to come to whom ever chooses to make this home their own.
