Enter the open- concept first floor living space through the utility-friendly air lock complete with subtle but gorgeous black slate inlay.

The first-floor powder room is perfectly sized and situated between the kitchen and living room. In the kitchen, you?ll find butcher block counter top, ceramic tile floors and textured stone backsplash, with a lovely window looking over the back patio. It?s big enough to have a breakfast table or a little office near the open glass back door. Just beyond the kitchen is the yard with a semi- enclosed private covered seating area as well as room to garden and grill.
Upstairs you?ll find 2 spacious bedrooms with lovely original hardwood floors and plenty of natural light. There is also a cedar closet upstairs for storing clothing and linens.
