Description:

Easy on the eyes and a lot of house for the money, this 2-story downtowner lives larger than its given square footage. Arranged traditionally, there’s a large living room in front with four big windows and a corner fireplace – pretty to look at it in the summer and most welcome in the winter months. Directly behind this gathering room is the dining room which overlooks the back yard and there’s a handy two-sided bar that provides extra seating or serving space between kitchen and dining room.

The flow is circular downstairs and the efficient kitchen opens to a covered deck with additional decking and patios filling out the back yard (that’s right – no grass to mow and maintain). A half bath is tucked under the steps so guests are accommodated on the first floor. Upstairs the front bedroom is generously proportioned and has six windows with southern and western exposures. The master is the back and has a tray ceiling and exposed brick chimney. En-suite, the master bath has a jetted corner tub and separate tiled shower plus glass-fronted closet and linen closet. A private 7’5 x 6 open porch looks down over the decks below. The third bedroom has its own sitting room with a bank of five windows facing south and east. One wall is filled with built-in bookshelves, making this a cozy spot for reading and studying. The two front bedrooms share a hall bathroom.

Besides the wide front porch and the kitchen deck, the outdoor living spaces in the fenced back yard include two more decks measuring 22 x 10 and 13 x 5’9 (with a low built-in bench for sitting or flower pots) and an ell-shaped patio. The tree canopy provides a mix of shade and diffused light so it’s a comfortable space even in the midst of summer. A detached masonry garage is currently used as a utility/storage room, while the oversized driveway can accommodate four average cars off-street (in tandem). Recent improvements include exterior painting, one new HVAC compressor and new panel box in May 2011, reroof in 2008, partial replumb in 2005 and a host of additional updates in the past 12 years. Offered with a 12-month Old Republic Home Warranty.
