Built in 1928, this four-bedroom home offers many original details. Special features include arched doorways, hardwood floors, woodwork, a fireplace and many built-ins. There is an updated kitchen, a formal dining room, family room, updated bathrooms and an open staircase. In addition to four bedrooms, there are three full bathrooms.

Before the property was purchased by the current owner, the same family had owned the home since the grandfather built it in 1928. The interior of the house offers approximately 2,180 square feet of living space. The home originally had five bedrooms until the previous owners combined two bedrooms to create one large main suite.

The property has a natural gas, forced air heating system and a central cooling system.

Just inside the front door is an entry space that offers views of the original open staircase. To the left is a wide, arched doorway that leads to the formal living room. Features of the living room include a fireplace, hardwood flooring and a large window that welcomes plenty of natural light into the room.

Another wide, arched doorway in the living room opens to the formal dining room. This space offers hardwood flooring, a chair rail and two more arched doorways that open to the kitchen and family room.

The updated kitchen features plenty of wood cabinetry, granite counter tops, stainless-steel appliances and a center island. The cooktop, dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, range, washer and dryer are included in the price of the home.
