My Notes

A lot of functionality is packed into this Liberty Heights Colonial, quietly sited on the corner of a dead end street. Major renovations in 1998: 2nd floor addition with 3 bedrooms - including large master with vaulted ceiling and hardwood floor, Laundry room, and Full bath. The Kitchen was updated in 2004 and includes a 5-burner gas cooktop, exhaust vent and ample cabinet space. The 1st floor Family room/den could be a 4th bedroom or au pair room since it includes an exterior exit. Also on the first floor is an office with built-in desk and shelves. In the basement there is a large finished area with a tile floor and a fireplace. Newly refinished hardwood floors on 1st floor and in Master brighten this already sun-filled home.
