You've been dreaming of the perfect home for quite some time—with plenty of space to spread out, a large private yard, on a quiet tree-lined street, and just the right amount of classic original charm...without having to update a thing. And suddenly here it is, right in front of you; you're not dreaming anymore! As you walk up the front walk of this classic stone center hall colonial, past the pink dogwood in full bloom, you'll certainly be hoping this might just be 'the one.' As you open the original front door and take in the welcoming center hall and light-filled living and dining rooms with gleaming original oak floors, you'll be quite sure this is it. To your left is the oversized living room; the centerpiece of which is the wood-burning fireplace with detailed wood mantle surrounded by custom built-in shelving and granite hearth. Off the living room is a cozy wood-paneled and exposed-stone office/study or playroom with built-in shelving that can be tucked out of view behind double doors. To the right of the hall is the formal dining room, which is large enough to host your next holiday gathering. Beyond that, enter the cheerful kitchen with classic white cabinetry, granite countertops, glass tile backsplash. The tiled floor extends into the breakfast room, where you can make your morning coffee and enjoy the view of the backyard through the picture window, or out on the patio. The first floor also features a half bath and coat closet in the center hall. Upstairs the spacious master has wood flooring and two closets, and an attached classic tiled bathroom with shower. The hall bath is also tiled with a tub. The other two bedrooms are large and freshly painted with new carpeting, one featuring custom board-and-batten wainscoting. The basement is finished with classic pine paneling, new tile floor and wet bar (sink needs to be reconnected), with plenty of space for fitness equipment, office, play area, or all of the above! There is a separate laundry room with utility sink and additional storage. The backdoor in the breakfast room leads out to the 2-car garage, patio and large yard and driveway area, fully enclosed with new wood fencing. The landscaping has been updated and well-maintained. The home has been freshly painted throughout and all windows have been replaced with high-quality Pella, and also feature new blinds—just to name a few of the recent updates—meaning you truly can just move in and immediately start living the dream, inside and out! **Showings start 5:00 on Friday 4/30, or come visit the open house Sunday 5/2 11:00-2:00.**
