Just beyond the living room is the dining room, a large eat-in kitchen and bathroom, as well as access to an entire flexible basement level suited for any of several uses such as a home gym, home office or hobby space, den or playroom. Let's not forget about the generous amounts of private outdoor space, which include a lush and well-cared for rear backyard and garden with annuals and perennials or your sunny front yard. Enjoy your morning coffee or an evening cocktail in one of your garden areas or host a get together.
The parlor floor greets you with 10' high ceilings and features three bedrooms and another updated bathroom.
