Beautifully restored, 1910, 3/2 farmhouse, with wraparound front porch, on .75 acre lot.

Although thoroughly updated, the house retains historic charm and character, with tall, original wood ceilings, the brick chimney in common area has been revealed ( flanked on one side by heart pine built-in shelves, and on the other side, a built-in table, both built from original, centuries-old wood, floor joists ). Also, there are several accent walls in bedrooms, finished with wood salvaged during this renovation, which feature beautiful old paint patinas. This is a 1-level home, with a very functional floor plan: open common living area with access to large wrap-around front porch ( perfect for rocking chairs, outdoor dining, possibly a daybed), the LR, DR, & kitchen all open to a long central hallway leading to back door, with bedrooms and baths off of hallway, including a Master suite, with 2 closets, wood accent walls, and a sliding barn-style door which opens to a stylish tile master bath.
