Impressive craftsmanship & expert woodworking skills are evident throughout the home in the original period features….from the elegant living room with huge rounded feature window, wide-planked hardwood floors, 12′ vaulted ceilings & exposed beams, and hand-adzed arched doors, to the leaded glass windows, brick detailing, and rounded archways; this home is absolutely enchanting and full of character!
The flexible design has seen many upgrades over the years, with an updated kitchen, lovely sunroom, den/office with built-ins, and a lovely dining room with access out to the sundeck.
2 bedrooms and 2 full baths are located on the main level of the home, and the Primary bedroom with private deck and ensuite bath, an office, 4th bedroom and another full bath are located on the upper level.
The backyard is sunny and extremely private, with mature, low-maintenance landscaping, large sundeck off the dining room, and a gazebo! A separate 2-car garage is steps from the kitchen/side entry, with lots of room for guest parking in the driveway…
