Although this house appears to be just another well-kept low-maintenance, Civil-War era house, there are delightful surprises here front to back! The open front porch looks to be the place to relax, but then there's the deck out back, or hanging around the pool, or enjoying the quiet solitude of the back yard - yes, it's truly all here! The beautiful original red pine trimmed by high baseboards that greet you, still graces nearly all the flooring found throughout the house. In a corner of the large Living Room sits an efficient wood stove (can warm up most the house) and the tucked-away staircase. A peninsula island with counter seating separates the Dining Room from the cook's Kitchen - abundant counter tops, storage cabinetry, gas range and open to the Dining Room's guests (cooks love to entertain). The first floor also features the bright, skylight-lit Laundry Room, a tiled Powder Room and the sunny, slate-floored versatile Mudroom/Office. Three Bedrooms, a Hall Bathroom and an open Den comprise the second floor. The Main Bedroom (third floor) has a skylighted sitting area, a sleeping area and a tiled Bathroom area - featuring a large soaking tub, separate stall shower and a large vanity. Back downstairs, the Mudroom/Office exit leads to the wraparound deck at the back of the house. The next section of the property comprises the generous lower deck that encompasses the in-ground pool. Behind the fenced pool area lies a quiet, secluded yard alongside the 2-story, fully heated barn/studio that features fine original flooring upstairs and a shop with a woodstove below. Other functional features include ample off-street parking outside, comfort-aiding ceiling fans inside nearly every room and energy-efficient windows throughout the house. This property is deceiving from the outside and can best be appreciated by viewing it from the inside looking out.
