Especially when it is in pristine original condition. Enter into the foyer and notice the oversized stone fireplace set off by the skylight in the stairwell. The built in bench near the cloak room, not coat closet but actual cloak room is handy for any busy family. Pocket doors lead to the TV room on one side and formal living room on the other. Gleaming hardwood floors throughout the first floor. The dining room is large enough to host the entire family for holiday dinners, and formal enough for romantic evenings. The eat in kitchen has plenty of counter space, ample cabinet storage and to delight the cook, a double oven. The windows over the sink look out over the large level back yard.

Up the front stairs you will see how the skylight floods the house with sun. The master bedroom has plenty of closet space and the private bath is just what you want to find.
