From the Zillow listing:


Located very close to the college campus, the owner of this home has taken great care in their restoration to convert the home that was previously an apartment to their family residence. The main level consists of the double living room which adjoins the ‘smoking’ room/den to the formal dining room with exquisite hardwood floors and beautiful buffet. The kitchen has been redone to mirror the kitchen that it once was with a stove that looks authentic of yesteryear and a refrigerator that is custom made to look the same. Next to the kitchen is the floor to ceiling pantry. There is a half bath off the hallway leading back to the front entrance. The front entrance to the home is a double entry door with a small foyer but once one enters the home, the rebuilt staircase to the upstairs has been duplicated to how it once was. Arriving upstairs, one will notice the spacious hall to the front adjoining bedrooms with access to the bath with a claw tub and as well as a shower leading to the stacked washer/dryer in the area leading to the hall to the second bath and two bedrooms that adjoin to each other. The attic provies storage along with home to one of the central air/heating units. The surprise in this home is the attached oversized two car garage at the back of the 74.87X132 lot. Call today to be surprised at this home!
