The kitchen has a custom built cabinet designed specifically to enhance the counter room and storage capacity. There is an outside entrance to the cellar. Hook-up for washer and dryer are in the cellar. A weatherization program went through this entire house 2 years ago sealing all incoming air ways, refurbished several windows with new springs and mechanical parts, cleaned and refurbished the chimney, added weather strips and insulation where needed throughout the entire structure. From the kitchen, on the main floor, there is a doorway (both doors are brand new) to the outside.

    Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In the 19611 market, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold fell 41.7% in the last year. The number of unsold foreclosures is 146.9% higher than in West Reading, and 17.9% greater than the national average.
