The built-in bar has a a refrigerator that is hooked up to a refrigerator in the basement that can house your favorite keg of beer which goes up and is tapped through the dining room refrigerator.

The island is for casual dining and also plenty of workspace when baking or preparing your favorite meal. Off of the kitchen is an area that leads to a beautifully decorated half bath.

In addition to the master bedroom are two bedrooms that are tastefully decorated. All three bedrooms have transom windows above each door that are used to let the airflow through when opening the many windows. A full bath on the second floor with double copper sinks and the washer and dryer. As you go up the staircase to the attic room, you will notice the railing that was designed to be removed to carry up larger furniture. The attic is currently used as a fourth bedroom and plenty of space to transform it into an office, craft room or a personal get-away. Another room connected to the attic for storage or whatever your needs may be. Picture yourself on summer evening sitting on the amazing side porch sipping your favorite beverage. The yard is beautifully landscaped with many perennials, trees and bushes. A limestone wall was installed along the property line with flowers and plants along its border.
