This vintage ranch style home reveals a surprising amount of finished living space (almost 2000 sq. ft). The living room features large picture windows and a number of notable built-ins which include a china cabinet buffet and a custom cubbyhole for a TV or entertainment center.
You’ll appreciate the main floor utility, mud room and 1/2 bath which are attached to the garage. The garage also has it’s own separate furnace. Three good sized rooms and an additional bathroom round out the upstairs area.
The lower level has been completely remodeled in the last several years. A large family room serves as the central point from which the lower level bathroom and bath and large pantry & cellar can be accessed. In addition, there’s a private reading nook/study/den to retreat to.
*Please note, the backyard actually extends around the neighboring home and includes 2 exterior buildings: a traditional shed and a larger unit with an attached carport ~ so there’s covered parking for a least 3 vehicles PLUS tons of storage.
