You enter the vestibule of this classic Victorian Tudor home from a wide wrap-around porch through a set of solid oak doors. The center entry introduces you to a “Great Hall” style living room with chestnut paneling, high exposed beam ceiling and a wood-burning fireplace. To the left is a half-paneled sitting room/den behind a pair of richly grained oak pocket doors. Both rooms have spacious window seats and the den has ample corner cabinets and a bookcase. An oak-columned transition beyond the living room leads into a bright dining room with bay windows, mahogany mantled fireplace and four sconced lamps.
Through a modern pocket door is a large, well- lite modernized kitchen with light granite counters and center island. All floors are of narrow gauge, refinished oak. Beyond the kitchen is the washer/dryer utility room and a powder room. The rear door from the kitchen leads to the large cedar deck, the back yard and the over-sized insulated and sun-lit 2-car garage with workshop capacity. On the other side of the deck, a second, one-car attached garage is suitable for lawn and deck equipment, bike storage and the like. Returning to the house, you may ascend to the second floor directly from the kitchen using a rear “servants” stairwell, or return to the center hall to use the wide main staircase. The second floor has four rooms, three of which are large (two with fireplace and mantles) and one medium sized. There is a full bath off the heartwood floor hall and another “Jack-and-Jill” full bath between the two front rooms.
Ascending to the third floor, there are three full-sized garret-style rooms, a third full bath and a small attic room adequate for moderate storage. There is a full basement in this home, including Bilco door access, that is partly finished on the original flooring and foundation. There is a bright room well-suited for playroom or exercise equipment, two separate walk-in closet spaces for storage and a remaining open area suitable for indoor play or hobbies such as table tennis or billiards. The rear of this space also contains the gas-fueled steam heat boiler, water heater, sump-pump and 100-amp electric service
