Property Description

As soon as you step onto the front porch and enter this home, you know that it is special. This home built in 1925 has been lovingly maintained and features hardwood floors throughout, two full bathrooms, originally three bedrooms (one is being used as a 2nd floor laundry room and can easily be converted back to a bedroom even if you leave a stacked unit in the room), a kitchen, formal dining room, living room, and a mudroom. In keeping with the charming character of the home, the eat in kitchen has 4 hoosiers for storage and a large porcelain sink. A mudroom with a back entrance leads to one of the two full bathrooms. Original brass knobs throughout and an antique working telephone in the kitchen. There is a generous primary bedroom with 4 windows that bring a lot of light into the room and a custom closet. The second bedroom is functioning as an office currently. It leads out to a cozy porch with screens and glass. A separate staircase leads to a windowed third floor that can also be finished as another space. The basement is dry due to the added French drain and sump pump. Air conditioning, gas heat and security system too. Ceiling fans in the kitchen and dining room. A private deck overlooks a fenced in maintenance free landscaped back yard. Hostas, a beautiful tulip Magnolia, dogwoods & magnolia trees abound. The side yard is filled with herbs & perennials – lavender, bleeding heart, hydrangea, lemon balm, mint, rosemary, lamb’s wool and the list continues. The gardens and the outdoor spaces lend to the enchanting atmosphere that makes this home an unexpected treasure. Make your appointment today. ** Option - At one time the home was used by the owner as two units. There are separate entrances allowing for the first floor and second floor to be separate - there is a full bath on each floor and there was a kitchen on each floor. Bonus - someone could live on one floor and have a rental income from the other.
