Orrin Sisson Home, aka “Sisson’s Fancy”
Orrin Sisson Home Seeks Lover of Second Empire Architectural Style
240 Sisson Street -- Romeo, Michigan
Classics never go out of style, and there’s nothing like an original. And I am an original; from my 24-foot pierced oak staircase with acorn finial to my hand-silkscreened wallpapers to my antique stove in the kitchen, you’ll find nothing but the real thing here.
The Orrin Sisson House mixes classic, Second Empire-style with luxurious living.
Though I’m 138 years young and sport elegant, timeless features, I’m not without my modern touches such as granite kitchen counter tops and modernized electric, plumbing, and natural gas systems.
Besides that, I mix classic, Second Empire-style with luxurious living. You can have large gatherings with family and friends in my third-floor recreation room (complete with bar, fireplace, and a fabulous view of the neighborhood from the window) or opt for tranquil solace in the first-floor library.
I could tell you more, but what I have to offer has to be seen to be believed. Check me out here.
