From the Zillow listing:


Built Circa 1931, this adorable Fleischmann’s Cape Cod needs some love! Located on a privately sited lot at the end of a cul-de-sac, this 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath home has retained much of the charm of the 1930’s – hard wood floors, period moldings, original doors and a very cool linoleum floor in one of the upstairs bedroom. The house needs work for sure, but for the buyer looking for a project this could be a real gem. There is public water and sewer, a furnace from 2014 and hot water heater from 2002. The yard is lush and has many beautiful plantings. The property is being sold “as is, where is.” A wonderful opportunity for the those with vision and know how!
