HISTORICALLY SPEAKING ...this house is like stepping back in time to the days when life was really fun hanging out at home...and all your friends thought this was THE place to be! This 3 story Colonial offers a blend of the old and the new and is situated on a 120' x 250' lot where the old above ground swimming pool could be re-constructed, and still have room for every type of game from badminton, volleyball, whiffle ball, boccie, touch football games, or pitching horse shoes could be played, while other family members can sit on the rear deck and watch all the activities!! Stately and well maintained this home offers a foyer entry with a handsome open staircase, 9' ceilings, a living room with a fireplace (possible to be operational), a main floor bedroom with full bathroom or use it as your family room!

The main floor laundry off the kitchen come complete with washer and gas dryer, and a full bathroom off the laundry room with an exterior door to the back yard... sure for where that swimming pool that you MIGHT want to put out there in the yard(again) provides easy access from all those back yard activities! The 2nd floor features two handsome bedrooms both having wide plank flooring and loads of sunlight from every direction coming through the vinyl replacement windows, and the right side bedroom has a fireplace that could be made operational. The 3rd floor has a 4th bedroom with wide plank flooring and adjoining room used as a walk-in closet, which has plumbing in the floor that would allow for a full bathroom or a powder room to be re-installed up there.

The driveway can handle about 10 vehicles and has a dual driveway apron for access from the street. The cozy front porch is hidden behind two beautiful blue spruce trees and some other mature flowering shrubs. The rear storage shed is the perfect place for all the grounds care equipment, with its own little "carport" for a riding mower.
