If you are looking for wonderful outdoor spaces and a charming home this may be the place for you! Imagine sitting on your covered front porch and listening to birdsong on this level Millsmont street. Lovely light living rooms are graced with a divine number of windows and pretty original built-ins and architectural detailing. The rooms have been freshly painted and the wood floors gleam in the sunshine.
The two original bedrooms are positioned off the hallway and share a bathroom which has had some updates. At the rear of the house is a very large room reflected as a third bedroom on the public records. The current owners used it as a family and multipurpose space, and it opens directly onto an amazing park like yard. In one of the generous sized closets is the conveniently tucked away laundry.
The good sized kitchen has just been refreshed with a beautifully installed Oak floor, cabinets have been painted and ceiling lights replaced. The vintage stove adds charm to this heart of the home, and there is a separate entrance from the driveway.
I don’t usually wax lyrical about driveways, but this one is quite a work of art! It’s wide, level and looks almost new and stretches way back on the lot to an equally spacious 2 car garage.
Buyers will see opportunities for play or parking on the driveway, updating the garage as a workshop or other, planting or landscaping in the back yard, or investigating an additional structure.
The yard is exceptional with no neighbors feeling right on top of you, glorious open sky and mature trees nearby.
