A hundred years ago and more, it was not that unusual for anyone to die at home. There were few nursing homes, no hospice, limited money for hospitals, and a feeling that the family should take care of their own. The family normally lived nearby, too. Today, that has all changed around. But with hospice, home deaths are one of the things they assist with. You may also ask the local hospice about this property.
We lived for 20 years in a home where the previous owner had died. We were perfectly happy there and it was something that, if we ever thought of it, it was with a feeling that made the place special to us. More special was the knowledge that our youngest daughter was also born there.
Best of luck to you,
