Inviting 1940's brick Cape Cod combining traditional architecture with updated and uniquely sophisticated charm. Enticing curb appeal with shuttered and symmetrical bay windows, a beautiful landscaped front yard and walkway, draw you to the entrance. Upon entry, the sunny center Staircase invites you into the Foyer. As you walk up the Staircase from the Foyer to the Second Floor, the custom hand painted wall paper and glass paneled exit door are even more pronounced. Open the door and you are lead onto a custom wood and cooper Widow's Porch Upper Deck. Enjoy breathtaking views of the large and amazing professionally landscaped backyard. Back in the house on the Second Floor are 3 good sized carpeted Bedrooms (2 of which contain cedar closets) and an elegant custom tiled Full Bath.
