Follow the stone pathway to the original solid front door. Once inside the welcoming foyer you are greeted with a winding stairway, built-in bookshelves and a lovely LR with wood burning fireplace. Hardwood floors run throughout the 1st and 2nd floors of the home, accented with slate floors in the foyer and sunroom. The kitchen opens up to the formal dining room with views of the landscaped backyard. French doors lead you to a sunroom filled with natural light and access to the backyard and stone patio. A 1/2 bath completes the first floor. Up the classic stairway to 3 bedrooms and a full bath.
