From the Zillow listing:


This 5 bedroom, 2 bath home has the charm and character from years that have come and gone….but does need some tender loving care. This home has lovely wood floors, an open stair case, natural wood work, a carved wood valance above the large doorway between living room and dining room and a wood manteled fireplace. The main floor features a foyer with a beautiful open staircase, stained glass and etched windows and a corner window seat, a living room, a formal dining room, a den with a nice wood manteled fireplace, closet and a built in curio cabinet, a spacious kitchen with plenty of nice wood cabinetry, peninsula and breakfast area overlooking the back yard, a mud/laundry room and a full bath with a shower, single sink with vanity and stool. The second floor features 5 bedrooms all with closets, a nice walk in hall closet with a built in chest of drawers and another full bath with a tub, single sink and stool plus a built in linen cabinet in the hall by the bath. This home also features a back staircase, walk up attic, a rear deck and a 1 car garage on 70×297 foot lot. This home needs some updates, flooring and bath remodeling but is so well worth the work. From a previous listing per owner: Newer roof with tear off and new plywood, water heater new in 2010 and boiler was new in 1996 and was checked and serviced in 2022. Note: The fireplace has not been used in the past few years and should be serviced before it is used.
