The home radiates a warmth and richness that must be experienced. All of the rooms throughout are generously spacious, offering ample room for most desired furnishing. Original trim details (circa 1905) create flourishes of character throughout the all-wood floored 1st and 2nd levels. As soon as you walk up to the front door, you see first hand the unique character this house has.
The large kitchen is filled with light and could easily accommodate a table or island, and this opens into a separate elegant dining room with chandelier. The family room is oversized and offers a beautifully mantled fireplace. Right off the family is the front porch that almost all these homes in the area are known for. One of my favorite parts of this house and a perfect spot perched up above the street to relax or entertain.
Up the wide, ornately balustered stairwell, you are greeted by three gleaming wood-floored bedrooms. The master bedroom is good size and offers a half bath along with a long walk-in closet.

As you ascend to the third floor you'll enter a unique and spacious cathedral-ceiling penthouse, which offers a small kitchen area, living area, separate bedroom and a full bathroom. This multipurpose room could act as a media room, family room, or as a 5th bedroom if desired. It can even be an au-pair apartment. You'll have many options here.
