Inside the side hall foyer connects the main living areas of the home with a formal parlor, dining room and beautifully updated kitchen. An added modern family room creates the open floor plan popular for today’s lifestyles. Upstairs are three large bedrooms, a timeless claw foot tub and details reminiscent of a fine historic home. 5 fireplaces, 2 of which are functioning. The home sits back off the street with a privacy hedge and a sidewalk entrance to the front and a convenient side hall entry with access from the parking area and detached garage.
