From the your first step through the oak front door, you can't miss the stretches of gleaming, well-cared-for wood floors and the oak trim on the windows , doorways and crown molding, and across the wide arches which lead to spacious living and dining room. This house was built with a level of craftsmanship and materials that few modern homes can match. The front door opens into a high-ceilinged foyer with matching wood-trim portals. One portal opens into the spacious living room with an eye-catching decorative fireplace, From the living room you enter the family room, part of a newer addition, with plenty of build-ins. The opposite portal opens into an entertaining-size dining room, through which you enter an updated, expanded kitchen with stainless appliances and cabinets galore in a light wood that brightens the room. Off the kitchen is a clever deck for al fresco dining.
Up the wooden staircase, there's a second floor with master bedroom (full en-suite bath), 3 additional bedroom (one has an en-suite half bath) and off the hall, a full bath and built in storage. Tucked under the eaves of the third floor is a quiet office and bedroom with en-suite full bath, a possible teen suite. The lower floor is partially finished with wood floor and paneling, with plenty of room for a fold-out couch or a game room equipment. The unfinished portion houses mechanicals and washer, dryer and utility sink. Around back, the detached two car garage has plenty of storage.
The home has a warm atmosphere, with plenty of room for family and guests, built for big holidays and celebrations -- or a smaller family which appreciates space and quiet -- well-built and beautifully preserved for a century.
