There’s an attached garage/workshop, off to the right of the entrance drive, while on the left a short flight of steps leads up to a hardwood front door, and the site’s easily kept, with not much in the way of lawns. 

Inside there’s a quality feel; the kitchen has been redone and is smart, bright and contemporary/country, with granite tops and island.

The main living room is a very decent 31’ long, and almost 18’ wide, with fireplaces, while the separate dining room has a wood-burning stove.
