To the left is a large parlor leading into the formal dining room with the original bay window and window seat. There is a large kitchen with all appliances and an additional dining area which leads to the laundry room, 1/2 bath, and an office area with a wall of windows overlooking the backyard with its own private entrance. Inside, every room of this casually elegant home makes a statement: stained glass window; decorative fireplaces all with original mantels (three with original tiles); hardwood oak floors; bay windows; bead board; and original molding and hardware throughout are just some of what you’ll find.

The first floor family living area has built ins, vintage doors, custom woodwork, and an atrium for the garden enthusiast. The rear foyer opens to the original staircase which leads to 2 upstairs bedrooms, and a full bath, a sitting area large enough for an office or study room with a window seat just waiting for someone to nap or read a good book, or just view the town. On the grounds of the home is a Guest house with a full bath. The home is conveniently located just steps away to some of your favorite restaurants, churches, and shops.
