Enter through a front door with paned windows to the spacious living room featuring original hardwood flooring found throughout the home. Canned lighting is also found throughout and is present in this room with high ceilings. The feature of this room is the handsome brick back wall where a woodburning stove sits. A window facing east and smaller windows facing north bring in much sunlight.

The formal dining area is between the formal living and kitchen, and this is where the contemporary flair of the 90s remodel is predominant. Windowless transom openings are above the archway between the dining and living, and a single-step trey ceiling with recessed canned lighting brings this vintage home into the new century! A large window facing north brings in much light, and the same handsome hardwood flooring flows through. Additional accents include high baseboards.

The kitchen is open to the main living area – something we don’t often find in historic homes. Friends or kids can eat at the breakfast bar. The storage is phenomenal – featuring cabinetry on three sides of the kitchen. The refrigerator is a sub-zero and the trash compactor and dishwasher are covered with wood matching the cabinetry. The island not only provides additional counter space, it also stores the microwave and wine rack – and has an additional prep sink and storage! New tile flooring adds a handsome contrast to the lighter cabinets, and new granite countertops and backsplash were added this year. A door from the kitchen leads to the back yard.

Now, on to the bedrooms on the south side of the home. The master bedroom EASILY fits king-size furniture and still has plenty of room for accessory furniture - and room to move around. This room also has the single-step trey ceiling, baseboards and ceiling fan.

The third bedroom is off the master bedroom and was originally used as a nursery. It is currently used as a dressing area, office and extra closet. It could easily be converted to a master closet, master bathroom or executive office.

The second bedroom at the east end of the home is huge and includes a cedar closet. Honestly, the size of these bedrooms and amount of closet space leads me to believe that this was a custom-build 100 years ago!

The hall bath actually has a linen closet inside the bathroom in addition to other built-in storage. The current owners updated with new tile flooring, vanity and light fixtures.
