This is your chance to own this majestic 1900s four square with an enclosed side porch on beautiful Washington Ave. As soon as you walk onto the tiled front porch and through the large French paned front door you get a sense of the craftmanship that was put into this home and maintained throughout the years. The meticulously restored staircase with a stained glass window on the landing will greet you as you enter. There’s plenty of space on the first floor with this functional floor plan that still preserves the beauty of the intricate woodwork and detail. The dining room features a lead glass built-in that is sure to wow you. There are 3 large bedrooms on the 2nd floor and a perfect teenage suite on the 3rd floor. A finished basement with a laundry room and another full bath provides lots of additional opportunities. Once outside there is a very manageable private backyard with an entertaining area and plenty of off-street parking when you do have guests. There is a detached garage for your own vehicle or lawn equipment. This really is a lovely home and the current owners have put a lot of work into making it work for many types of buyers.
