This 1930s brick Colonial Revival home is very impressive with its many unique features throughout. From your first step through the front door, you will be in awe of the detail found in every room. Large living spaces on the first floor include the main living room, with a fireplace, a heated sunroom, a separate dining room, a vintage kitchen, a powder room, and an enclosed back porch room. Three spacious bedrooms, a sewing room, and a 30’s style original full bath are on the second floor. Even the basement has living space with a family room, fireplace, and office. There is an attached garage, very rare in a home of this era, and it is bigger than most 2-car garages. The property is a double-sized lot and has an enormous tree and garden area in each yard with many native plants.

Special features include curved roof tiles in excellent shape; copper gutters; brick exterior covering cinder block walls; vintage garage doors retrofitted with electric openers and an epoxy chip floor; brand new concrete driveway; new walkways; newly enclosed back patio with a special marble floor; hardwood floors (beautiful oak under the sunroom carpet); floor-to-ceiling windows; nine-foot tall ceilings; two working fireplaces; built-in cabinets; old telephone station; many original light fixtures; vintage tin ceiling in the kitchen; two staircases to the basement; elegant front staircase and landing; vintage tiles in both bathrooms; autolights in closets; vintage millwork and arched passageways; a potential wine cellar in the basement; large back patio and a storage shed in the rear yard. Want more closet space? use the sewing room for a walk-in closet, as the current owners do. There is an unfinished attic that has great potential to add more living space as well. AND, it is in a fantastic location!
