A time of pride and craftsmanship, evident from the wood flooring with decorative inlay, wainscoting, detailed woodwork, french doors, built-in cabinetry, and floor to ceiling windows. All this and it's incredibly spaciousThe massive living room is centered around a gas, brick fireplace and is enhanced by hardwood floors and glass french doors to the formal dining room which features a built-in china cabinet, a stained glass window, wainscoting, and entry to a delightful covered porch. The kitchen was added in the mid 1990's and offers a lovely blend of modern amenities, including ample cabinet and counter space, built-in microwave, dishwasher, double bowl sink, hardwood floors, and a dramatic cathedral ceiling, completing the kitchen are a powder room and laundry facilities.
