A long gravel drive leads from the main road back to the house with a detached two plus car garage and attached two-car garage. A concrete paver walkway leads to the front of the home with wooden decking over the front porch. The front door is covered by a storm door.

An original wood door with top window leads to the carpeted entry and coat closet.

This room is open to a dining room with ceiling fan and vertical blinds over a picture window. This room also has hardwood flooring.

The dining room is open to the kitchen, which has vinyl flooring, wood cabinets, a wraparound breakfast bar, solid surface counters, pendulum light and appliances including a range, refrigerator and dishwasher.
