On the left side of the home you will find the two ample sized bedrooms both filled with natural light. Hardwood floors and modern light fixtures grace both rooms. Conveniently located between the two bedrooms is the freshly painted bathroom with modern Italian floor tile, claw foot tub, and charming beadboard.

Just off the kitchen is a spacious laundry room complete with LG washer/dryer, new light fixture and a great glass door that lets in the light and leads to the backyard. Down the stairs to the fenced backyard to enjoy the patio and sweet gazebo. Imagine dining al fresco, or hosting summer BBQs with friends!
