This circa 1900 American Foursquare, constructed with stone faced block, catches the eyes now as much as it did more than 100 years ago. A popular trend between the late 1800s into the early 1900s, the block construction offers a solid, quiet, and safe feeling inside. Inside, the current owners have taken great pride in refinishing the original hardwood flooring. Most rooms have received a fresh coat of paint to best showcase the home's architectural features: stained glass, tile fireplace, tall ceilings, and woodwork. The third floor dormer flanked master has new carpet and en suite bath with a whirlpool tub. The back yard includes a deck off of the rear sunroom, a stone patio, carport, and a mature tree canopy. The basement boast a 9 foot ceiling, half bath, and walkout to the carport.
