From the Zillow listing:


This brick house is on 1 acre with bold and wide Elliot Creek frontage. Whimsical paths lead you around the gardens awash in daffodils, irises, lilacs, peonies, daylilies, climbing roses and hosta. No mowing required, property is covered with ground ivy and monkey grass, though you will need netting to keep the birds from the grapes, berries, paw paws and medlars! The 1940 bungalow is a real charmer. 5 bedrooms have multiple uses; one is a guest bedroom, one is being used as a library, and one is a very special playroom, with slanted ceilings and closets like little rooms. All original hardwood floors throughout. The second floor is wood paneled. Original gorgeous chimney of river stone has a wood insert; its fan heats the entire first floor. There is an attached 2-car garage and a sizeable shed that could be converted to living space. Enclosed courtyard area with stone patio.
