This delightful home has so much to recommend it: wonderful flow, period features, and room to grow. A private side entrance leads upstairs to the gracious foyer. The living room features a stained-glass window and wood-burning fireplace. In the adjacent dining room, walls of windows, surrounded by evergreens, provide year-round light and privacy; exposed brick adds character to the space.
The kitchen, renovated in 2014, has white cabinets, stone countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a farmer's sink. All three bedrooms are well-proportioned, with ample closet space; a charming small study, encircled by bay windows, provides that all-important home office. The bathroom has appealing retro details like pink and grey floor tiles.
Upstairs, the attic is currently used for storage but architectural plans are in hand for a full bedroom suite. Outdoor space includes large fenced-in yard, patio, and mature perennials.
