Description

Historic detached home has classic charm updated with modern conveniences and features! Located just blocks from the waterfront and across from open land, there are river views from all levels. The main floor features a large room in the front of the home (original section dating to the 1700's) that can be used as a living or dining room. Down the hall is an open, bright and airy contemporary living area with fireplaces and adjacent updated kitchen with vaulted ceiling and skylights, and finally a powder room (added around 1990). Lots of natural light from the wall of windows in the back overlooking the private brick patio and fenced area. The second floor features a bedroom in the original section plus an updated full bath and master bedroom with vaulted ceiling, skylights, walk-in closet and access to the 2nd floor balcony (the master suite was also added around 1990). The walk-up attic is finished for the third bedroom. Other features include a main floor laundry, central a/c, and lots of bright rooms. Within the last 3 years, the owner has put on a new roof, new wood siding and has installed new central air. The plumbing and electrical systems were updated around 1990 with the other renovations. This home is the ideal combination of history, location and modern conveniences and systems. NOTE: After Hurricane Sandy, this property was noted to be in the flood plain. In reality, less than 1' of the steps is within the plain, but that has caused the requirement for flood insurance to be maintained if the purchase is financed. With an acceptable offer, the seller is willing to pay the flood insurance premium for 1 year (the premium is estimated to be less than $2000/year).
