AMAZING in Town property. One of the joys of this beautifully renovated 1800's five bedroom (3.5 bath) house & generous yard is its location. Enter property from a lovely street in the historic district greeted by more than an acre of green space with stately elms as well as chestnut & holly trees, privet and flowers. All this foliage tends to keep the property a full 5 degrees cooler than Main Street just a few minutes walk away.
This many-windowed home is a perfect balance between elegant and casual, new and old. Sunlit rooms (decorated with artwork & antiques) still retain their old world charm yet are bright & airy & equipped with modern conveniences such as central air, wi-fi, 2 TV's, a new farm-house sink, new washer & dryer, Weber grill, & dishwasher.
First Floor: Upon entering foyer, to your left, find a spacious L-shaped living room & to your right, the stairway (under which is a half-bath) leading to the 2nd floor. From the front door & foyer, walk straight ahead into a pale yellow dining room that easily seats 8 and opens on one side to an enclosed stone-floored sunroom (with flat-screened TV) where you are surrounded by greenery and the sight & sound of birds. The other side of the dining room leads to a full pantry & well-supplied kitchen with a butcher block island table. Another perk of this cheerful kitchen is its screened-in porch where you can take your morning coffee.
Adjoining the kitchen, two bedrooms (one Queen & one double) with large closets, share their own shower bathroom. Perfect for young people, noisy guests or a nanny and child since they cannot easily be heard by those sleeping upstairs.
Second Floor: Here are 3 bedrooms along a long light hall. On one end is a generous master bedroom (with ensuite bath/shower, flat screen TV & queen-sized bed) and on the other, a bedroom (two twins) with a bath/shower right next door. In the middle, there's a small bedroom with a captain's bed that most children love. All bedrooms have a minimum of two windows with great views of the property & full-sized closets perfect for longer stays. The large beautiful yard is quiet and tranquil surrounded by lovely plantings. Walk to Main Street in minutes.
In sum, this tranquil home with its very large yard and tastefully furnished rooms has a peaceful atmosphere where you can truly relax.
